As a communications professional and Certified Divorce Coach®, I partner with anxious and overwhelmed clients to create and utilize emotion-free communication throughout the divorce process. We'll work together to achieve your goals, set healthy boundaries and rediscover the strength, resilience, and courage needed to successfully transition into your best Phase 2.

My creative, strategic approach to problem solving is both motivational and empathetic, and rooted in the amazing “Phase 2” I created following my own divorce. I believe that everyone has their Phase 2 somewhere inside, and I work diligently to help each client live their wholehearted life.

Compass Rose™ clients benefit from my 25+ years of experience in crisis communications, branding and marketing, as well as my calm strength and commitment to tangible results. Throughout my career I have worked to help executives, teams and individuals communicate succinctly, with clarity, intention and impact, and I love using these skills to provide support and confidence to women and men tangled in the web of divorce. recently featured one of my articles on their website.

When I’m not coaching, I love to be outdoors hiking or skiing, I’m an avid reader, yogi and exercise junkie, and most importantly, the proud mom of 22-year old twins and a five year-old aussie doodle. I received a B.A. in Psychology from George Washington University and an M.S. in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania.

I founded Compass Rose™ because everyone deserves an amazing Phase 2.

Even though my divorce process is complete (and I am living my Phase 2!) I still value Andra’s input on communications strategies related to my ex, co-parenting issues and other questions that come up. She is always reliable, attentive and never judgmental. I absolutely recommend her! – L.S.
