Divorce is not something that is done to you, it is something a person experiences. It does not have to own you or define you. While moving through this tentative period of life, you can be the conductor of your life once again.

Which will you choose; will you live your life, or will it live, you?

Please feel comfortable contacting me regarding questions you may have about the Vocational Evaluation process. It is my goal to help alleviate your concerns as you move forward.

Ms. Lambert has counseled hundreds of clients as they experience different hiccups in their lives. She has extensive knowledge and experience working with individuals, administering and interpreting interest and aptitude testing in order to evaluate marketable skills/transferable skills, earning capacity employability as well as assisting to formulate and plan career goals and dreams.

Divorce can feel like a horrific promise gone bad that was originally made to include a life of financial stability, safety and love for the rest of your life that is now gone with what may seem like in the blink of an eye. We find ourselves with newfound emotions saying, ‘Now what’?

What you do not know about Ms. Lambert is her passion and welcoming nature working with people as a team while they enter their new phase of life. As the English novelist Rose Tremain once said, “Life is not a dress rehearsal”. So, when you call, remember, as a team we will work together maximizing your potential as you make your way through your next transition in your life.

In California, “The Court recognizes that it is in the best interest of both spouses and of society in general that the supported spouse become self-sufficient. Cal. Civ. Code 4801 (a) (1) A) “expressly directs that in determining the amount and duration of spousal support, a court is to consider as a factor the supported spouse’s marketable skills and ability to engage in gainful employment”.
