My next guest, Martha Buttenheim, is the first guest I’ve had who was a college classmate! Over the years I heard she had married her college sweetheart and had children, but I didn’t see her in person again until our 25th college reunion, when she introduced me to her partner, who is also a woman. In addition to Martha, I also knew four other women in my age group who were previously married to men & now divorced, but in happily committed relationships with women. We talked to psychologist Dr. Drema Dial about figuring out she was a lesbian after her own divorce briefly in episode 29 about the psychosocial causes of migraine, but I thought this topic was worth a much deeper dive, especially after our interview with Vivian Fransen in episode 56 about her book, “The Straight Spouse”.
Martha is the owner of Guidelight Coaching, and works as an executive coach, helping women and entrepreneurs achieve their goals, perform at their peak, and manage work/life balance with minimal stress, striving, and sacrifice.
