Therapy and Coaching for Midlife Opportunities
Let’s stop calling it a “Midlife Crisis. ” Midlife (40+) can be a time of tremendous opportunity and growth. By the time you reach midlife, you have amassed a great deal of wisdom and perspective that can be tapped to turn transitions and challenges into opportunities, growth, and deeper life satisfaction.
You are smart, accomplished and capable. You have met or even exceeded your goals, but may still find that you are lacking a sense of satisfaction and meaning. All your basic needs are met, but you may now be aware of “higher” needs that are calling for your attention. You are the kind of client with whom I get great results. I am passionate about helping high achievers understand what truly brings satisfaction and meaning – and then map out next steps and set goals that allow you to live into the present and future with curiosity, clarity and purpose.
Midlife is a great time to pause, do a “life review” - celebrate your successes, heal any lingering wounds, explore options and opportunities and move into your future with intention, meaning and joy.
At this stage of life, it is possible that you may sometimes feel lonely, isolated, unseen or misunderstood – even if you have many friends. The rise of social media and the subsequent lessening of deep, close, connected communities is leaving us all feeling less supported and less connected - and sometimes even a little lost. My intention is to create space and a supportive environment for you as you reflect, explore, resolve, gain clarity, articulate intentions, set goals and live into your life.
Our work together can help you:
- Address the question “Is there more to life?”
- Understand a lingering sense of discontent or boredom with the status quo
- Define who you have become and where your life is headed
- Move away from “a job” and into a clearer sense of purpose, meaning, contribution and legacy
- Adjust to an “empty nest” or navigate changes in relationship to growing children – figure out who you are now that “parent” is not your main job description
- Navigate difficult feelings related to your own aging process
- Cope with new health challenges and hormonal changes that often arise in midlife
- Manage the stress, reflection and loss related to aging and dying parents
- Address relationship challenges – divorce, affairs, relationship dissatisfaction, and reconnecting after children leave the home
The road to personal and professional satisfaction in midlife is unfolding right in front of you. I welcome the opportunity to work with you to maximize this part of your journey.
