Midlife and Menopause – Mentoring

The purpose of a midlife crisis, perimenopause and menopause (from a spiritual perspective) is to move us beyond childbearing to birthing ourselves…and this is as true for men as it is for women.  During midlife and menopause, we are invited to leave behind the life we have known to make room for the new life that is trying to be born through us.  In birthing our new selves, we are birthing our Soul – the unique way we are creatively gifted to find meaning, purpose, connection and fulfillment in our lives and the way in which we find fulfillment by contributing to the betterment of our world.

Midlife and Menopause – One-on-One Mentoring

As a spiritual director with over twenty years of experience, I have accompanied hundreds of men and women in the birth of their Soul.  (See Testimonials HERE) The vast majority of this work has happened for people during the often treacherous time of the midlife transition and has included everything from grief counseling to job loss, divorce, medical diagnoses, empty nest and just plain feelings of discontent.  The typical indicators/symptoms of midlife are:


  • Boredom
  • Loneliness
  • Longing
  • Discontent
  • Impatience
  • Anger
  • Rage
  • Relationship Issues (including the Dark Night of the Relationship)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Panic Attacks
  • Physical Changes (including weight gain, illnesses and sexual dysfunction)
  • Grief
  • Sorrow

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, there might be something medically going on, and if you are over 30 you might just as well be experiencing the midlife transition.  If you are looking for guidance and support through the midlife transition, call me at (920) 230-1313 or email to set up your own face-to-face, phone or Skype consultation.
