About My Clients

My clients are young boomer and older genx-ers who realize that time is getting shorter and their backs are hurting more. This confluence of awareness - we have less time, and our strength and stamina are waning - pushes us into the midlife awakening (can we not call it crisis?). Now is the time to create the lives we really want. Tomorrow is not guaranteed.

My Background and Approach

Midlife clients are working on deep issues like grief and overcoming fear and guilt that has stopped them living fully. But they're also working on nuts and bolts, practical things, like shifting careers, building businesses, developing creative pursuits, and purging all the baggage (literal and metaphoric) that pile up over the years. This is why I offer a hybrid of therapy and coaching. We might spend a block of time working through a childhood trauma that made it feel impossible to set boundaries. Then, having the ability to say no, the work might shift to deciding and creating whatever the client wants to say Yes to. I like offering the flexibility to do both, to go back and forth, as needs arise.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It's really hard to be a human being, especially at midlife. Our ageist culture can make us feel invisible or irrelevant. Yet we have so much wisdom and experience to offer. This is also a time when we feel less and less patient with drama, B.S., small talk, etc. Life feels short. And if you've spent your younger years pleasing others in order to feel a sense of belonging or acceptance, then it might be even more urgent to let those old coping strategies go so you can live "truth-fully" through the second and third acts of your life.
