You’re terrified, broken-hearted, and desperate for answers.
You've consulted oracles and spirit guides and journaled to death about whether or not to leave your marriage.
You've taken all the classes, read all the books, listened to all the podcasts.
But you're still sitting in neutral, idling at the fork in the road unsure which direction to go, unclear what lies ahead.
More than anything else, you're trying to figure out which path will do less damage to your kids.
You're still struggling to answer the question that's been haunting you for years:
You want a fucking burning bush already. Someone (or something) to tell you clearly: "It's time to go," or "Stay, and you'll get through this."
Hey there. I’m Kate Anthony. I’m a certified coach who helps moms decide whether they should stay in or leave their marriages.
And then I help them either heal their relationships, or exit with grace.
My ex and I had the kind of marriage that was so volatile that most people didn’t want to be around us.
It was unbearable to witness, let alone experience.
Even so, we were willing to do anything to save our marriage, to save our family. We went to group couples' therapy. We attended individual couple's therapy. We were both in individual solo therapy. And we were both in 12-Step Programs.
I spent 10 years agonizing over whether there wasn't just one more thing I should do to try to save my marriage. (Spoiler: there really wasn't.)
I now help women just like you examine their marriages as thoroughly as possible to assess if there really is something they haven't tried, or if they'll simply be idling in neutral at the same fork in the road for another ten years if they don't make a decision now.
I will help you
- Decide with absolute clarity whether or not to leave your marriage. Looking for a burning bush? I'll help you find it.
- Gain confidence and self-esteem like you've never had before.
- Learn to communicate in healthy, productive, and effective ways (even the hard stuff).
- End the confusing, repetitive, mean thoughts that are swirling through your head.
- Heal your relationship, should you choose to stay, so you don't fall back into the same rut.
- Craft a detailed exit plan, should you decide to leave, that will support and protect your kids throughout the process.
- Work through what went wrong in your marriage so you never repeat the same patterns again, whether you choose to stay or go.
