Divorce Coaching Services Featuring Lisa Zonder, Founder of WO40 Coaching LLC

For most clients, divorce feels like a gut punch. Veteran divorce lawyer Lisa Zonder has noticed now more than ever that it’s not just legal advice divorce clients are craving. Divorce, for most clients, is an emotionally and financially overwhelming experience. Lisa founded WO40 Coaching to assist in bridging the gap between solving a client’s legal issues and addressing the client as a whole person.

At WO40 Coaching, we are dedicated to providing you with the support you need. The coaching services are non-legal and wholly distinct from the law firm. However, clients find they equally need these services in addition to the legal services. With her unique blend of legal expertise and coaching skills, Lisa offers a holistic approach to help you navigate the complexities of divorce and emerge stronger. This includes preparation for negotiations, divorce transition and recovery, personal transformation including social (dating and new friend circles, readiness for change), emotional (focusing forward), and new career choices.

Divorce Coaching

What is Divorce Coaching?

Divorce coaching is a specialized form of support designed to help individuals navigate the emotional, logistical, social, financial, and legal challenges that accompany divorce. Divorce coaches serve as your “thinking partner” and are more skilled than just relying on a well-intentioned friend’s advice. They are not full of judgment and suggestions from their own divorce. Instead, the certified divorce coach is well trained to listen deeply to you, with honor, empower and inspire you to make informed decisions, set goals, and reach your full potential. A trained divorce coach encourages you to make powerful changes. A certified coach is not a therapist and does not do therapy. The coach helps you focus forward on preparing for mediation, settlement meetings, and court. The skilled coach views the client as a whole person who is eminently capable of figuring out her own wants and needs.

A divorce coach can assist you in various ways, including:

Emotional resilience and best-self

Divorce coaches provide a safe space for you to share your feelings, fears, and concerns. A coach helps you manage the transition and countless changes that often accompany divorce. You can be coached to reach your full personal potential and maximize resilience tools.


Divorce coaches assist you in making informed decisions throughout the divorce process, from choosing a family lawyer and financial professional to managing the expenses of the divorce team.


Divorce coaches work with you to establish realistic goals for your post-divorce life. This may include financial planning, career development, or personal growth objectives.


Divorce coaches can help you improve communication with your ex-spouse, enabling more effective negotiation and minimizing conflict during the divorce process.

Resource navigation

In her role as a veteran attorney or as a certified divorce coach, Lisa serves as a point-person to connect you with various resources, such as legal professionals, financial advisors, real estate professionals, forensic accountants, and mental health experts, to ensure you receive comprehensive support during your divorce.


Divorce coaches encourage you to prioritize your physical and emotional well-being throughout the divorce process, providing guidance on coping strategies and self-care practices.

A divorce coach can help quiet the chaos during the divorce process. Divorce creates an even greater sense of overwhelm, and a coach can help you prioritize and keep things in perspective so you don’t feel like you might crack at any given moment.
