Lorie A. Hardin, MBA

Alaska's Only Nationally Certified Divorce Coach


Welcome, my name is Lorie Hardin. I am Alaska's only nationally certified divorce coach and provide family and custody mediation in Alaska and across the globe through zoom services. I specialize in working with parents who are involved in high-conflict divorce or custody battles. 


I understand firsthand, through my own divorce, the heartache and destruction that can occur when individuals are making life-altering decisions while overwhelmed and not operating at their very best.  I help my clients regain a sense of peace, security and feel like they're in control of their life again!


If you would like to discuss how I can help you reduce conflict, reduce the expense of drawn-out litigation, and make clear and reasoned decisions without regrets please contact me for a complimentary discovery consultation.

Family Mediation 

Mediation is an informal, voluntary, and confidential way to resolve disagreements without giving the decision making power about your family to someone else.  In mediation, all the decision making power stays with you.


Divorce Coaching

Coaching is a flexible, goal-oriented process designed to support, motivate and guide people going through divorce helping them make the best possible decisions for their future, based on their particular interests, needs, and concerns.

Parenting Services 

Supervised Parenting Time 

Contact between a non-custodial parent and one or more children in the presence of a third person with a goal to provide children with opportunities for safe, conflict-free access to both parents. 

 Parenting Classes 

A court approved skills based program that helps parents deal with children's reactions to divorce. The program is based on research that identifies the most common and stressful loyalty conflicts experienced by children in divorced and is included in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidenced Based Programs and Practices

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate,
but that we are powerful beyond measure. And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.

-Marianne Williamson
