What I Do
Experiencing the death of your relationship is traumatic. Plus, embarking on your life after divorce brings the fear of an unknown future. This cluster of trauma and fear is the “pain of divorce.”
In a nutshell, I end the pain of divorce and speed up your return to the mainstream of life.
Whether you are male or female, gay or straight, if you want to get through your divorce or breakup and get over the traumatic aftermath so you can get on with your life, then I can help you do it – up to 10 times faster than the norm.
Typically it takes 3-5 years to recover from a divorce. But, it often takes longer. (My sister-in-law still hadn’t recovered after 25 years when she died.) However, you can return your life to normal in as little as 3-5 months. Using the Smooth Divorce Recovery Program, a proprietary, 3-step, 10-module program I developed, you can (1) dissolve the pain you are currently in, (2) release the baggage from your past relationships, and (3) prepare for your new relationship – with the confidence that it will last.
This is what I do. This is all I do. My name is Jerald Young. I am the Founder and CEO of Smooth Divorce Recovery.
My Personal Experience
I have been divorced twice and happily married since 1993 and agree with Margaret Mead when she said, “I’ve been married three times, all successful.” I have two daughters and three step children. I currently reside with my wife, actor Melissa Hart, in Minneapolis, MN. Since 2003, I have worked full time helping divorced individuals make a fast and smooth recovery from divorce.
My Professional Experience
I received a Ph.D. from Yale University and a BS from the University of Oklahoma. For 21 years, I was a professor at the University of Florida where I taught courses on how to manage change. My area of specialization is in “How to Dissolve Resistance to Making Major Life Transitions.” My book on how to dissolve resistance to change, Me? Change? Not Now. Not Ever!, lies at the heart of the Smooth Divorce Recovery Program™.
My newest work, The Book on Divorce Recovery: The 10 Fatal Mistakes that Will Sabotage Your Recovery from Divorce and How to Avoid Them, will be available in 2016.
My advanced coach training includes: (1) Executive Coach Academy of New York City, (2) i-Coach New York’s Professional Coaching Program, (3) Relationship Coaching Institute’s Relationship Coaching programs for both Singles and for Couples, and (4) the Grief Recovery Specialist Program of the Grief Recovery Institute.
I am dedicated to returning my clients to life’s mainstream ASAP with renewed hope, rekindled interest in life, and practical skills that will enable them to enjoy a satisfying, rewarding life after divorce.
Just know that, with your commitment, we can make your last divorce your last divorce!
