Coach profile: Claudia lopez
I am the founder of Stomping On Eggshells and proud to be New England’s first high conflict divorce coach to be certified through the High Conflict Divorce Coaching Program, founded by industry trailblazer and founder of One Mom's Battle, Tina Swithin. Additionally, I'm certified as a Domestic Violence Survivor Advocate and counselor and have been trained as as a Youth Mental Health First Aider by the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.
Having experienced a long, contentious and costly divorce and two child custody battles in Norfolk County and lived to tell about it, I longed to help other protective parents struggling with high conflict divorce and custody cases, and to amplify the voice of women and children who experience the "silent abuse" of coercive control, which is the underpinning of all forms of domestic violence.
With this commitment in mind, I became certified as a coach to empower other protective parents who are contemplating divorce from a high conflict or narcissistic partner or are already in the court system, through strategies that can make a real difference in a high conflict case as well as provide a sense of peace and control in co-parenting.
To enrich my personal and professional experience as a high conflict divorce coach, I actively pursue training and educational opportunities in mental health, domestic violence and positive parenting.
I founded Stomping On Eggshells with 3 principles in mind:
1. Create a team of dedicated and specialized high conflict divorce and custody advocates who work independently and collaboratively to support protective parents and their children in every state.
2. Increase awareness about coercive control, intimate partner violence and post-separation abuse at the community level to minimize the impact of generational abuse and promote mental health.
3. Advocate for research, legislation and education in the family court system.
A California native, I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a B.S. in Business Administration. I live in Massachusetts with my daughter and rescue dog.
Workshops and in-person client sessions are available in Natick and surrounding communities.
