I was referred to Heidi at the outset when divorce was still just a possibility and am very pleased that I was. She listened carefully, helped weigh the choices (post nup; separation; divorce) and then, as things evolved and we moved toward a divorce, she sized up my spouse’s counsel and made a referral that was superb. Against a top-dollar blow-hard she aligned a genteel and careful lawyer who constantly made the right calls about where things were going, what was posturing, what was real, and where (and this did happen) my own instincts were wrong. In the end she resolved everything exactly as she always said they would resolve, and I was completely satisfied with the outcome. And with Heidi’s solid referral. I highly recommend her. — David
Now, one year later, a lot wiser and stronger, and a lot more aware of my own needs, both emotionally and physically, I can say I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The journey, though painful at times, has also been enlightening, challenging, rewarding, reaffirming, and ultimately one from which I feel I have grown tremendously.
I cannot thank you enough for your support, guidance, referrals, and holistic approach to dealing with the separation. I gained an awareness of myself and what is truly important to me going forward. I know there will continue to be emotional highs and lows in the coming months as I go to court and when the divorce becomes final, but I think I have weathered the worst of it. I’m not sure I would be at this point if it weren’t for your kindness and reassurance back two years ago when I began this journey. It was the most difficult time of my life, for many reasons, and I’m not sure I could have navigated it all without your help — Joyce
When my marriage failed, Heidi provided objective, realistic, and compassionate guidance through the process of rebuilding my family. For me, divorce was an intimidating process I never imagined I’d face. It was difficult to know where to turn for advice. Without Heidi, my only resource was the few friends who had been through it before. That’s helpful, but it is also dangerous because a small, random and probably biased sample doesn’t give you much of an idea of what to expect or how to proceed. Heidi helped me put my divorce in context and navigate my way through so that I had faith that the lawyer I hired and legal process that ensued was the right course for my family. Her vast experience with divorcing families and the divorce process gave me invaluable perspective and support – from how to help myself, my soon-to-be-ex-spouse and my children accept and adjust to change to insightful analysis of how the law applied to my situation. And she also provided hope that when it was over, I would come out the other side intact, stronger and wiser. I am forever grateful. — Kathryn
I came to Heidi Webb on a friend’s recommendation that she would be a good person to speak with regarding finding legal counsel for my divorce. They said she would meet with me and take my information and then provide some good matches in terms of possible lawyers to act on my behalf. I never had to find a lawyer before so the whole thing was a bit terrifying. As soon as I met with her I felt immediately relaxed and at ease. She was very caring, sincere and understanding. She really listened to my story and immediately gave me lots of very good advice. I found her to be extremely competent and knowledgeable. Her depth of human understanding coupled with her legal expertise and experience made me feel like I was in good hands. I trusted her completely to guide me in the right direction.
With her expertise she put together an initial list of lawyers that might be a good match, which she had thoroughly researched and carefully interviewed on the phone and then narrowed it down to a select few. She communicated to me all her reasoning and thought processes about why she selected these lawyers. I then was able to make the final phone call and interview the ones she had carefully selected for me. Her matching was so on target that I hired the first lawyer she had recommended to me and was very pleased with this choice. She not only saved me a great deal of time and energy but I believe the matching process she skillfully performed with her particular expertise and background put me in a much better position to find the right lawyer than I would have on my own. She did all the hard work for me so I could focus on all the other things I had to do at that critical time. Now that my divorce is final, I can say with absolute certainty that she found me an extremely competent and wonderful lawyer who was truly a great match for me.
I am eternally grateful to Heidi Webb. This service that she offers is quite unique and invaluable. It takes the heavy burden off the client to find the right lawyer at a most critical time when you need the help the most. She is a highly qualified professional who will match you with the right lawyer for your situation. — Susan

Divorce Consultant Heidi Webb and Financial Advisor Deanna Coyle will help you navigate your pathway through your separation and divorce with a holistic approach to the process. Both of these women
understand the importance of managing the legal and financial pressures while recognizing the need to address the emotional consequences of this process.
Heidi will explain her role as a consultant showing you the benefits of having someone review all legal and financial consequences, find a lawyer that fits your unique circumstances, help you feel supported during this process and start to plan for your future.
Deanna will guide you through one of the primary issues that needs to be discussed during divorce: “How do we divide our assets?” All divorcing couples must divide their marital property and assign marital debts as part of the divorce process. However, we can’t loose sight of establishing a new personal financial plan including rebuilding your net worth and saving for retirement as a solo entity but equally important is rebuilding your net worth post divorce.

Heidi Webb to speak on:
How an Instinctual Tendency Inventory (ITI) might better inform the Collaborative Practice.
Heidi created the ITI in an effort to help practitioners refine their team interactions so that clients can optimize their outcomes.
The ITI is intended to help lawyers, coaches and financial neutrals better understand their own tendencies by answering questions like:
As a Collaborative Lawyer, is your strongest instinctual tendency as an Advocate or a Professional Team Player?
As a Collaborative Coach, do you identify most as a Process Facilitator or as a Guide? and
As a Financial Neutral, do you tend to see yourself as a Problem Solver or a Decision Maker?
