Be of service
by being your Self

I want you to love your midlife
and share your wisdom with the world.


You are a singular work of mastery. And yet . . .

…something doesn’t feel right.
It’s taken you 40+ years of life to awaken to the realization that personal accomplishments—career, family, relationships, spiritual seeking—are not enough to give you a true sense of purpose.

There has to be something more.

The radical changes to your body, your priorities, your needs, and your values have left you feeling alone as you try—valiantly! nobly! single-handedly!—to trailblaze a path through the second half of life.

But you can’t do it alone.
And you don’t have to.

Midlife is a time of discernment.
You know what you want. And what you don’t.

You want Purpose.

Living your best life is a magnificent thing.
But then what?

Despite all our inner work and personal achievements, we can still feel like something’s missing from our lives.

That “something’s missing” feeling comes from an archetypal longing to contribute to something larger than ourselves.

Being a wisdom-sharer (a.k.a. mentor) is one of the ways we can develop a gratifying sense of purpose.

While there are many ways to mentor, simply living life as our true selves contributes awakened energy to collective consciousness.

(Here are a couple of scientific studies about consciousness and quantum fields in case you like to geek out on this stuff as much as I do.)

You want like-minded Community.

It’s likely you already have some supportive female friends in midlife. Thank goodness for that. Seriously. At the end of those phone calls, coffee meet-ups, or dinner dates, you may feel seen and heard, but our friends have their own lives. We can’t expect them to be our therapist or coach.

What if you (and your friends!) had a larger community of like-minded women?

Imagine a virtual gathering place where you can learn from, share with, network, and play with sisters across the globe—all of you working toward becoming the best version of yourselves so that you can give back to the world around you.

That community exists and I’d love to have you be part of it. Click the image to learn more.

Erik Erikson’s Phases of Psychosocial Development place us in the time of  Generativity vs. Stagnation. We have a choice: stay stuck or contribute to the world.

How can I guide younger people when my own life is in transition?

It’s a big ask. I know.

Here’s the good news: Your struggles are part of the gift you offer the younger generation.

More about that in the brief video below.

How to get started . . .

Let’s work together like a couple of archaeologists to unearth the gem that is your true self. That jewel of self is your currency in this world—and it is invaluable.

Together, we’ll brush off the decades-old soil of unhealthy relational habits, negative self-talk, funky boundaries, self-doubt, and general world-weariness.

Let’s polish that gem of self so that you are ready to step into your purpose as a woman whose life wisdom can help support younger generations on their path.
