Becoming an empty nester often brings up a variety of emotions. You may be concerned about how your child will do on their own and what choices that they will make without you. You may be wondering what the next chapter in your life is going to be for you. This transition can be one of the hardest if you’ve put all of your heart and soul into raising your children and you’ve not had much time to think about yourself. Well, now it’s time to start thinking about you again or perhaps for the first time ever!
I help parents discover how to reconnect to their core selves, to their partners, to their passions and come up with a plan to make this next chapter of their life happy, successful and fulfilling. There are many phases of this process that may have obstacles to overcome. It takes time to fully transition into a successful empty nest where you feel truly comfortable, connected and like everything is going to be okay. It is important to be gentle with yourself in the process.
Where are you in the process?
Concerned about launching your child into their independence?
Ready to step into the next chapter of your own life?
Stuck in the grief process of life without your children at home?
Having difficulty finding direction or fulfillment with what’s next?
Wondering how to revitalize your marriage?
Ready for a career transition but don't know where to start?
Want to spark joy in life but don't know how?
Struggling in your transition to your new adult-adult relationship with your children?
Does one of your kids need your support right now? Perhaps they moved back in temporarily? Not sure how to best support them?

(Fill in, what is coming up for you right now?) _____________________?
Regardless of where you are at in this process if you are struggling or feeling stuck or just need some extra support, I may be able to help you get to a better place. A place where you can say that you've successfully transitioned into the empty nest.
When you receive support this can help you learn how to shift into living your life the way you imagined it would be when your kids left home, those positive memories. Or, perhaps you never imagined this time in your life and you need to start having some vision of what will make you happy. This is important in order to start the journey. That's how you will know you've arrived when you get there too!
