Cathy Meyer

Cathy Meyer is a single mother, certified relationship coach, marriage educator, divorce mediator, legal investigator and freelance writer, mother of two sons and a survivor of divorce.

Seven years ago Cathy found herself knee deep in the trauma of an unwanted divorce. Her only source of support, an inept attorney and the Family Court System seemed ill equipped to offer her the legal protection she needed. This is when she decided to take matters into her own hands. Learning all she could about the system and how to make it work in her best interest became a passion for Cathy.

As a Divorce Coach Cathy has the tools and strategies to enable her clients to live a rich productive life during and after the divorce process. As a freelance writer and coach, Cathy shares her expertise on the Divorce Support Channel on About.com.
