After starting her career as a successful family law attorney, Lori Rubenstein, JD, PCC, came to the understanding that the well-being of divorced families was clearly not the task of the legal system. She realized that she was like a square peg trying to fit into a round hole as a divorce attorney. Instead, she chose to follow her own mission – empowering people to heal from their relationship wounds, eventually becoming a certified coach. While seeking that goal, she learned that forgiveness truly is the cornerstone of all healing. On a personal level, Lori has been twice divorced and today is happily remarried. Her children are grown and she lives a life filled with love and laughter, walking her talk and always striving to make a difference in the world.
In addition to her private practice, Lori is a facilitator for Healing of Memories North America, teacher of Divorce Recovery Coaches for Impact Coaching Academy and is a facilitator for Northern Arizona Restorative Justice. Lori was a Court Appointed Special Advocate for Abused and Neglected Children, is an Ambassador for Shared Hope International, a member of the Sedona Advocacy Team for FCNL (Friends Committee on National Legislation) and was a member of the board of the Sedona International City of Peace. She has a unique ability for holding sacred space for people to heal and mend their past, and to transcend their own “stories.” Inner peace, she teaches, starts with self-love, acceptance, non-judgment and self-compassion. She is the author of three transformational books, including the bestselling Forgiveness: Heal Your Past and Find the Peace YOU Deserve.
