Divorce Tool Box founder Audrey Silcox is a counselor and divorce educator who has worked with divorcing couples since 1996. She graduated from Auburn University at Montgomery, Alabama with a B. S. in psychology and a M. Ed. in counseling. She is a Certified Professional Coach as well as a Certified Divorce and Family Mediator with credentials from two states’ Supreme Courts.
Audrey has worked in private practice in mediation and counseling, and within the judicial system handling co-parenting and other issues affecting couples who face divorce.
Perhaps most importantly, Audrey Silcox has walked “in your shoes.” When faced with her own divorce years ago—before becoming a mediator—she found herself suddenly making major decisions with little information. This experience taught her the power of self-education about divorce and the types of decisions divorce requires, and the importance of learning to make those decisions under stress.
Audrey believes in the wisdom of assembling a “divorce team,” or surrounding yourself with wise counsel from multiple sources instead of relying on a single professional, no matter how qualified. She created Divorce Tool Box to be one of those excellent resources for information and to fill the gaps between mental health counseling and legal assistance. Remember: when the legal process is finalized, it will be you who must live with the specifics of your divorce decree or settlement agreement, not your legal professional. It’s up to you to be informed and clear about your needs.
During her career as a counselor, divorce and family mediator, professional coach, and divorce educator Audrey has helped many just like you who may be wondering where to start, how to spend money wisely in the costly divorce process, and how to make good decisions in a system that can be hard to understand. She has seen the damage that can occur in families who experience divorce and its life-altering consequences without the right tools. Divorce Tool Box is the solution.
