Leave Strong Divorce Coaching was founded by Laura McGee out of her desire to ensure others going through a divorce would not repeat her journey. Laura discovered, first hand, that there was no cost-conscious support available to demystify the divorce process and guide her though the minefield of complex decisions she had to make in a timely and healthy way. Inspired by the support that was missing form her divorce, Laura became the missing link and now supports others. She coaches, guides, and consults as a method of supporting individuals at every stage of their divorce. Laura’s one on one coaching provides her clients with a unique blend of emotional support and legal expertise, which helps them make timely and ctical decisions, manage the complexities of co-parenting, and accelerate their process so they can heal and thrive after divorce. She builds cost-saving relationships with her clients’ attorneys and other essential professionals, to ensure they have the tools, resources, and information they need to leave strong.
Educated in Canada, Laura graduated with a BA honours from University of Winnipeg, with a double major in English and history. She went on to earn her law degree from the University of British Columbia Law School in 1984. She practiced as an attorney in Vancouver, British Columbia in the field of personal injury litigation and family law. At just 32 years, Laura owned her own law firm, McGee & Co., practicing personal injury law. In 1998 she sold the firm and worked as a law consultant, while earning 91 accredited hours of mediation training at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. She went on to get her Alternative Dispute Resolution Certification from the University of Windsor, and received additional training from the Law Society of British Columbia’s Continuing Education department. In 2004, Laura relinquished her licence to practice law and now works exclusively as a divorce coach.
