I was recommended to Clarissa by a friend who had recently completed her divorce under similar circumstances to mine; long term partner left suddenly for a new girlfriend, leaving a wake of financial and emotional mopping up for her and her children.
It can be hard, under such circumstances, to see which direction to sail your ship. You are desperately trying to keep it afloat as you are bailing out and patching leaks.
I arrived in Clarissa’s office sleep deprived and distraught. She was able to provide compassion and understanding, but also a calm clear process to work through the mess in front of me. I felt listened to, supported and cared for at a time when I needed it most. My questions were always discussed with openness, accounts clearly explained, concerns addressed.
Throughout, Clarissa was able to support me in navigating a sensible financial separation without becoming mired in unnecessary acrimonious (and costly) arguments.
