Understand what stage of divorce you are in, what is coming, and what you MUST and MUST NOT be doing. Knowing your stage gives you perspective & improved clarity as you get organized & focused (– for whether divorce happens or not)
For women seeking structure, guidance, education, and support
As they “contemplate” …. or begin the actual divorce/separation process.
Annie’s Group is a live, virtual group-coaching program, where it’s safe to learn what is possible for your life …
- And (Potentially) as a Newly, Independent Woman
Our next group begins Tuesday, July 7th. (See below for complete class dates.)
“I could not approach alone what I’ve gained in Annie’s Group. I feel a sense of power I’ve never experienced. I’ve moved from being frozen and petrified to having a fire and warmth in my heart for myself and my life.”
—Susan W., Washington, D.C.
“For the totality of the experience—the logistical, legal, financial, emotional, empathetic guidance and support, there’s nothing like it.”
– Colette, Minneapolis
“It’s helpful to know you are not alone, to experience the process with the wisdom and support of a group of intelligent women all on the same path. There’s a comfort in strangers, that is simply not possible with friends and family who are not themselves divorcing.”
—T.Y., New York City
Annie’s Group is about learning what is possible, and also how to make the big decision and all the little decisions along the way — healthily.
For many participants, this is THE class they use to get organized, educated, and to create their divorce strategy.
For others, who don’t know if they’ll divorce or not (but who’ve grown tired of just thinking about it), Annie’s Group teaches them about the process and what their choices genuinely are. If they do divorce down the road, they will make the decision — or respond to it — from a deeply strengthened and informed place.
For those women who have no choice in the matter, the divorce is happening, Annie’s Group helps them get anchored to care for — and also protect — themselves.
For others beginning the divorce/separation process, Annie’s Group is the rope they stay tethered to as they navigate the everyday demands of life and divorce decision-making — all the while moving from knot to knot, taking steps and actively building their best, new independent life.

Annie’s Group™ * is a virtual, live-coaching, divorce support group for women accessed online through Zoom. Led by SAS for Women Cofounder, Liza Caldwell, our program provides a confidential overview of what a woman must know about divorce.
Our goals are simple but life changing. We want all participants to learn their rights and about their life options so they ultimately make decisions from an informed place. Making decisions from an informed, and thus empowered place, fosters healthier outcomes for everybody.
Each week of classes focuses on an important theme followed by participants’ specific questions and challenges and subsequent homework and Sister Partner assignments. You’ll learn the “lessons” and so much more — by hearing from other women who share their questions, dilemmas and experiences, and who also want to support you.
To find out if this virtual community of sisters is right for your needs … and where you are on your journey, schedule your quick, confidential interview with Liza soon.
Space is limited.
“Liza is compassionate, direct, and doesn’t equivocate. So grateful for her seering/searing insights.”
– Colette, Minneapolis
“Liza is clear, communicates really really well, and brings so much personal and professional experience to the table. She’s extremely good at what she does.”
– Alli, New York City
“Wise, practical, gentle, sincere, sympathetic, funny, strong, and flexible, Liza is a true guide. She seems to be on a mission to empower women to take charge of the parts of their situation that they have control over and to make D a little less horrible overall. She did both for me and I am very grateful.”
—Gail N., New York City
“Liza is passionate and shows great compassion. She helped me gain focus and perspective on this topic during a time when I felt like I was struggling. She helped remind me when to put the brakes on and what action I need to get done.”
– Diane, Minneapolis
“Liza facilitates a cohesive class — and is ALSO very flexible and responsive to questions and comments. Able to be present and respond beautifully to every twist and turn, her direction in group and individually is priceless.”
– Susan, Washington, D.C.
We understand the need for privacy. You are welcome to participate using your first name only or an alias. Together, immersed in an atmosphere of sisterhood, kindness, and mutual respect, we will hold a confidentiality agreement.
You will absolutely learn more about yourself . . . be holistically educated on the divorce process . . . and experience a shift in your way of thinking and what is possible for you, or write to Liza and SAS will refund your money for remaining classes.
Due to the subject and the vulnerability of participants, we must protect the divorce support space and keep it limited.
Annie’s GroupTM is named after Anne Clarke of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, who, on January 5, 1643, was granted the first recorded legal divorce in the American colonies by the Quarter Court of Boston.
If you feel you must do something, but taking a three-month class is just too much right now, we get it. Consider a baby step. Maybe register discreetly for our one-hour Master Class, How to Know IF Divorce is Right for You … And What You Must Know to Do It ? While not the deep dive Annie’s Group is, our Master Class is full of information, advice and helpful outside-of-class features. (Read what other women have said when you visit the link)
Getting educated brings relief.
