Next Cohort Begins Soon

Divorce Coaches Academy is on a MISSION

To train and educate global, professional divorce coaches that are prepared with excellent conflict management and coaching skills to lessen the financial and emotional impact of divorce on families.

We believe divorce shouldn't bankrupt anyone and kids don't deserve to be caught in the crossfire.

There's a different way to do divorce and it starts with understanding conflict.

Terri DeCoster, ADRDC

This DCA coach training offered excellent content and resources for divorce coaches with an ADR focus. The program was well organized, full of effective concepts and learnings, and well balanced between the online independent learning and live group sessions. Tracy and Debra are excellent, informed, compassionate trainers and I highly recommend this program.

Transformative, Conflict Focused Divorce Coach Training

Kelli Sedwick-Drummond, ADRDC

My DCA training has been transformative. My biggest takeaway was how important it is to take a different approach during conflict. A small shift can change everything. The skills from the program apply in way more than just coaching. Debra and Tracy are excellent instructors with a wealth of knowledge. I highly recommend this program!!
