Is this you?

My kids have left… What am I supposed to do now?
I feel like I’m slowly becoming irrelevant, invisible. If I’m not a full time mom, who am I?
No one seems to understand my pain. What right do I have to talk about my “first world” problems anyway?
I’m worried I’ll never find something else to do that I care about. What’s next for me?

I get it. I’ve been there.

Being a mother was the first time I felt I had a real purpose in my life. When my daughters became more independent, then left for college, I didn’t know what to do with myself. I struggled with sadness, anxiety, loneliness, and fear. I knew I had many more productive years ahead of me and I also knew I didn’t want to go back to Corporate America—even if I could, 18 years later!

You don’t have to go it alone.

As a certified life coach, I work with women empty nesters who feel lost, scared, and alone. They wonder what they’re supposed to do now that their kids are gone. They sometimes feel like they’re disappearing. I help them put themselves first, ask for the support they need, get in touch with what they want, and feel excited about their future.

Because you still matter. And you’ve got a lot of living to do.

After I left a 30-year career and after my twins were fully launched, I found myself at loose ends in trying to articulate what I wanted this next stage of my life to look like. I finally had freedom — but freedom can be scary. With Hélène’s help and guidance, I was able to identify my core value set and come up with action plans that enable me to get the most out of this next stage! Hélène is unfailingly patient and insightful, and in the process, I uncovered some truths about myself I wouldn’t have gotten to otherwise. I recommend her highly. –Sharon
