Bethany Yamawaki, Relationship and Transition Coach
Bethany Yamawaki, CPC, is a certified life and relationship coach working with singles and couples in all stages of relationships- including mindful divorce, effective reconciliations, successful singleness, and other life transitions. She helps people transform chaos to clarity and authentic living. She is expanding the reach of the Beyond Divorce Recovery and Empowerment by providing virtual programs and support.
In Bethany’s 20 years as a casting producer, she has interviewed over 1000 people about life and relationships. One of the things she found was that some people who went through an upheaval as significant as divorce were still healing and not ready to move forward. She decided to become certified as a Relationship Coach to help people in ways she couldn’t before. In addition to her BA from Northwestern University, she received training from the Life Coach Institute of Orange County and also the prestigious Relationship Coaching Institute, where she graduated as a Certified Professional Coach, RCI Relationship Coach for Singles, and RCI Relationship Coach for Couples. In collaboration with her colleagues, mentors, and Jeannine Lee- the author of Beyond Divorce, Bethany is revitalizing this proven system! Beyond Divorce gets those who are divorced through the pain and back to happiness and wholeness faster, so they don’t have to struggle without structure and support.
Bethany has been married for over 20 years and has personal experience dealing with upheaval and crisis in relationships. She and her husband share a teenage daughter and their adopted dog, Coconut Yum Yum Yamawaki. Growing up biracial (Nigerian and German) and creating a multi-cultural family, Bethany brings a strong sense of diversity-based understanding to her work. She spends her free time learning, reading, attending live concerts & theater, traveling when possible, and practicing Pilates to stay peaceful and grounded.
