Divorce is tough, so why are Elizabeth Cohen and I smiling?
Because she has a roadmap for a mama who is considering divorce, in the middle of a divorce, or post-divorce. When she went through a divorce as a young mother, she couldn’t find the support and resources she needed and, frankly, longed for.
So she created a program.
Elizabeth Cohen is a psychologist who has broken the inevitable-depletion-during-and-after-divorce-code and has created a program so mamas like you don’t have to go it alone.
Divorce can make it tough to co-parent, to find our confidence again, to thrive again.
And what can be especially tough is when we don’t have a village to raise us up and take us through the process, one step at a time.
Elizabeth is also a mama who is part of the Mothering & Daughtering community; I first met her in one of our preteen mother-daughter workshops. She knows what sisterhood is about.
And she knows what thriving, not just surviving, is about.
I am so happy to share this interview with you!

Are you thriving or just surviving after a divorce? How is co-parenting going? What has this conversation brought up for you?
P.S. Forward this video to a mama who’s going through divorce or post-divorce. Because sharing is caring and everyone needs the sisterhood!
The timing of this is a Divine Connection! I have been moving through mediation “amicably” with my to be ex-spouse with mixed feelings: overwhelmed, unsure, then calm, and clear and then brutally grieving. I have been looking for something to help move through, and then this appears! And as Elizabeth mentioned, therapy is costly and time I can’t take during the workday right now. What an inspiring touchpoint and peace of mind knowing this is available! Going to Elizabeth’s website for more info. Thank you for sharing this episode this month!
I am thrilled to hear this Lauren! xo Sil
I love the work that Sil is doing and the great guests she has brought forward. I met Sil at Esalen when my daughter was 13-14 years old, she is now 21!! At that time I was just beginning a new relationship post divorce. Six months ago I ended that relationship. Though not married, the separation was a traumatic experience. In my post relationship healing journey, I found Sil’s name referenced in a book and I felt the spiralic cycle of life.
Thank you Elizabeth for your bravery and your courage to bring this work forward. I am excited to look at your resources and provide this resource to my patients and friends who need this support.
Hi Patricia! Love hearing from you and glad to hear you are healing post relationship breakup. So great to hear from you! Love, Sil
And from Elizabeth: Dear Patricia,
I am so glad you reached out and that you circled back to Sil. Isn’t it amazing how we find and get exactly what we need even when we least expect it.
Any separation and ending of a relationship whether we were married or not impacts us to the core. We need to heal from those endings as well. Know that you are deeply lovable and worthy of deep connection. You will get all that you dream of or something even better.
I do think Afterglow could help you heal from your recent breakup. While we cover topics related to divorce we spend a lot of time on processing anger, loss and grief. If this resonates with you I’d be happy to talk more. You got this!
