Liz Wolff is a Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Social Worker with over 35 years of experience supporting individuals, couples and families as they navigate life’s transitions. Both personal and professional experience have led her to the field of divorce coaching. Liz uses the guiding principles of collaborative practice to support couples through the challenges inherent in a relationship ending.
Divorce is a time of extreme stress and increased vulnerability. Divorce is comprised of five major dimensions; cognitive, emotional, physical, financial and legal. Successful uncoupling will require that the partners work through each dimension. Negotiated decisions made through collaboration are known to be cost-effective and result in healthier outcomes and more successful adjustment for those who choose this process.
Liz also believes that those who commit to divorce without litigation, and who create solutions that are their own will emerge with their dignity intact, their children strong and their new lives rich with promise. In her experience, settlement can often be reached using negotiated outcomes that reflect the unique needs and best interests of the separating partners and their children.
The Collaborative Divorce Coach guides individuals and families in their recovery from the emotions of shock, grief, anger, fear, loneliness and diminished sense of worth. Management of the emotional dimension will facilitate resolution of the financial and the legal tasks. The Coach assists the partners with plans for shared parenting that reflects their commitment to the children’s long-term growth and well-being
Liz has a private therapy practice in the Wolseley Area. She is a member in good standing with the Manitoba College of Social Workers and is also a member of Collaborative Practice Manitoba. Nominated as a Woman of Distinction, she has lectured and been a conference and seminar speaker in Winnipeg for over three decades.
