Hi, I'm Sarah Lyman

When I was getting divorced from my husband, I didn’t know what I was doing. I spent hours searching Google, unsure of whom to trust, and feeling hopeless about the future. There had to be an easier way. With two decades in communications and design, I started interviewing divorce pros, and wove their advice into a video course to help others.

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 this 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? Oh, and 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.
