Shift your mindset from failed marriage to fresh start

Divorce doesn't have to be this tough. I've created two online courses to reduce the confusion and stress of the divorce journey.

If you're asking, "What do I need to know when getting divorced?" these courses are for you.

Fresh Start

This comprehensive course covers the legal, financial, and emotional information you need to be more empowered on your divorce journey.

Divide Not Conquer


Self-paced, affordable, and it features a stellar team of educators. The whole package.


-L.G.


I wish I had come across this before I started this journey. I would definitely recommend this to a friend. It was excellent. Period.


-David


The course is cathartic. It allows a safe space to grieve but also to be confident to move forward. Being able to pause to think and process conflicting emotions is important.


-Amy

I'm Sarah Lyman, nice to meet you

When I was getting divorced from my husband, I didn’t know what I was doing. I spent hours on Google, unsure of whom to trust, and feeling hopeless about the future. There had to be an easier way. So I started this course. I have nearly two decades in communications and design, so I started weaving together advice from experts into something organized and accessible to help others.

Personally... faves include Star Trek TNG, Queer Eye, hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, and listening to live jazz. One of the things I discovered after my divorce is that I enjoy watercolor painting: I'm still learning and all of the artwork on this site is mine.

Why "PurplCouch"?

When I was furnishing my new home after my divorce, I suddenly realized that I didn’t need anyone else’s input on the furniture. I got a gorgeous velour purple couch. PurplCouch.com is a symbol of the empowerment we get when we look forward and write the next chapter of our lives.

What will be your "purple couch" moment?

PurplCouch is a place of inclusion for all genders and orientations.
