Ending a relationship is a painfully traumatic, life-changing event. And, the thought of embarking on an unknown life after divorce is fraught with fear and foreboding.

I help men and women, gay or straight, get through their breakup or divorce and get over the traumatic aftermath so they can get on with their life – up to 10 times faster than the norm.

Typically it takes 3-5 years (and often longer) to recover from a divorce. My clients can return their 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, clients (1) dissolve the pain they are currently in, (2) release their baggage from past relationships, and (3) prepare for a new one that will last.

My name is Jerald Young. I am a Divorce Recovery Coach.

My Personal Experience
I have been divorced twice and happily married since 1993. I 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 16 Fatal Mistakes that Will Sabotage Your Recovery from Divorce and How to Avoid Them, will be available in 2015.

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.

My Mission
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!
