Circumstances have changed. You imagined this stage of life would be different. You thought you would feel accomplished by now, and have peace and order in your life. You did not imagine strained relationships; exhaustion from taking care of a parent, spouse, or grandchildren; kids that disappoint; or dissatisfaction with your career.
Life is messy; you don’t have to be.
If you are 40-65 and struggling with hopelessness, anxiety, sadness, worry, stress, fear, or irritability due to:
- Searching for your purpose
- Health Challenges
- An Empty Nest
- Late pregnancy or raising grandchildren
- Work Issues
- Caregiver burnout
- Major illness or disability of child, parent, or partner
I help women who struggle to adjust to changes that occur during the middle chapters of their story.
You can learn to:
- Manage stress and emotions
- Have better relationships
- Determine and enforce your boundaries
- Communicate your needs
- Stop relying on shopping, substances, food, or people to make you feel better
- Stop comparing yourself to others
“When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves.”
– Viktor E. Frankl
Don’t let your old story of fear, shame, or guilt keep getting in the way of happier life.
Now is the time to get rid of judgments and limiting beliefs that are keeping you stuck.
