As your coach, my job is to help you articulate your dreams, desires, and aspirations, help you clarify your mission, purpose, and goals, helping you achieve the outcomes your desire.

My clients usually come to coaching to do things differently or to do different things. They want to get unstuck, figure our their priorities, set goals, develop plans, take action, and use the accountability of coaching to get results. My job is to make this happen.

What is Non-financial Retirement Coaching, and Would I Benefit?  

Retirement transition coaching enables individuals to make a smooth transition from their current or recent employee role to their new lifestyle. Retirement Coaching is a process with tangible tools, written documents, and thoughtful discussions. 

Each person’s process is different. While some people seem to be naturally "good" at being retired, for others to attain a fulfilling retirement requires some deliberate soul searching, and hinges in large part on concepts entirely unrelated to money.

Whether you are five or ten years away from retirement, actively planning for it, or already retired, you may benefit from the benefits of a retirement coach. Statistics show that within two years after retiring, many individuals will encounter issues if they have not clearly defined this new phase of their lives. 

I often find new retirees making a common error: they mistake the joy of being retired with being fulfilled in retirement. After the euphoria of, “Yay! I don’t have to go to work today!” wears off, recent retirees often feel an overall sense of loss. Common feelings are: 1) A lack of social interaction, 2) A lack of purpose, 3) A feeling you’ve reached your peak and are no longer needed, and 4) A feeling of being disconnected from society. When I dig deeper with clients who have been retired a year or more, I often discover a life that’s void of true fulfillment and purpose.

Don't just retire from your old life; retire to a new life. Never fully retire. Create a fulfilling and rewarding Third Act for your life. My goal is to help you to Reinvent your retirement years through individual retirement coaching, or my "Don't Just Retire, Refire!" and "Purpose Driven Retirement" coaching groups / workshops.  My objective is to help you develop, design, and live a Purpose Driven Retirement to enabling you to THRIVE during your retirement years.


Relationship Coaching:

What Exactly is Relationship Coaching? group of people holding hands at sunset

Relationship Coaching is a life coaching specialization that helps people find greater fulfillment in their personal relationship. This is especially important in your Third Act where the transition from employment to retirement often causes a decline, hopefully temporary, in psychological well-being and marital satisfaction. 

For some couples, the stress of retirement can add to already existing marital problems making or make new ones with the pressures and trails of creating a new retirement life. Don’t let your relationship become part of the Gray Divorce phenomenon. Relationship coaching during retirement can help you prepare for this transition so that the decline can be minimal, short lived, or even completely absent. As you move into retirement, you may need to redefine roles in your marriage or desire to enhance your marriage in your Third Act.

I can help you set relationship goals for your Third Act, better understand your current partnership, thrive inside your marriage, grieve a loss of a partner, or take your long-term romance to the next level by creating your own relationship vision. I can also help clients who are not currently in a relationship develop the relationship they have always desired.

As a relationship coach, I take healthy people and couples and make them high performing. I can help you discover what they want out of your partnership, guide you around painful issues in retirement, and create a safe place as you face your fears and discovered your Third Act relationships. I believe my clients to be healthy, powerful, and able to achieve relationship goals with effective support, information, and guidance. 

My role, as your coach, is to facilitate your learning and discovery to find your own answers. I may need to strategize or brainstorm with you or offer ideas, but these ideas are not proposed as solutions. These ideas are offered as possibilities. In coaching, we are both equal. There is no superior knowledge or treatment plan; my role is to be present for you to help you articulate your concerns, define your ideal future, develop your plan and support you in making your dreams come true.

Encore Career Coaching:

What Exactly is Encore Career Coaching?

Typical Career Coaching is a type of personal coaching that helps people find greater fulfillment in their careers by establishing professional goals, creating a plan, and overcoming obstacles that may be in the way. As an Encore Career Coach, I can help you with a wide array of career-related goals and issues. You may be stuck in a dead-end job that is bring you no meaning or purpose to your life, you may be challenged by the demands of balancing you work life with your personal life. Many individuals as the enter their Third Act, between 50 to 75, want more flexibility, freedom, and fulfillment in their careers. Due to the current economy, you may need of a Job Loss Recovery guide to help you recover from a layoff or downsizing of your current job.

Some clients know exactly what they want to do with their Third Act or Semi-Retirement years, but need help finding and executing a plan to get there, while others have struggled without a clear calling in their life and are seeking purpose and reward during this new stage of life. As an Encore Career coach, I can help you with all these concerns and much more.

Many individuals entering their Third Act may never plan on full time retirement until their final years. For financial reason or personal fulfillment, they may desire to continue to contribute and find fulfillment from employment throughout their lives. They are seeking employment that gives them meaning, purpose, and an opportunity to contribute during their retirement years. As some may say, a reason to get up in the morning.

As an Encore Career Coach, I can support you in your new career exploration, forming a job search plan, updating your resume, supporting you through the interview process, and transition into your new career.
