Cindy Gunraj
CEO & Founder, StillnessBlooms LLC
Certified Divorce Coach - Teacher - Speaker

Author, Speaker, and Certified Divorce Coach (CDC®) Cindy Gunraj shares the cultural and religious barriers that individuals experience in divorce. She works with women in all stages of divorce to help them navigate cultural stigma and judgment in their transitions, so they feel more confident. Facing families and communities where divorce is controversial and outright unacceptable can be daunting and adds extra hurdles in the divorce process. Cindy’s own divorce journey was filled with cultural, religious, and traditional roadblocks so she’s well-equipped to help women face this terrain. In this program she shares key strategies for divorce professionals to implement when working with clients facing cultural issues.
