Your life is changing — your body, your mind, and your feelings.
This 25-year stage of profound change is called
Helping women 45+ navigate the rough seas
of menopause and midlife.
Whether a woman was previously enmeshed in raising a family, caring for others, or independent and career-minded, or both, the processes of perimenopause, midlife, and menopause create actual changes in the body and the psyche.
You may find that some days you are going with the current, some days you are struggling against it, and other days you get dashed against the rocks or beached. You are not alone, and you can make it across into new territory.
Women are discovering that at age forty-five to fifty, something new is coming. The other side of midlife and menopause can be one of the most inspiring and fulfilling times of your life.
A time I call Regency.
I created The Midlife Re-Boot! Method to help women 45+ acknowledge and influence the physical, psychological, and spiritual life changes they are embodying.

Since the first meeting, I have had a renewed sense of wonder at my own life, my own story. I love the support of the women in the group, the material and especially the workshop exercises. It's been really good for me and came at a good time!

Andrea's role as a Midlife Re-Boot midwife is invaluable. I attended her workshop in June and it was the first step in attracting all of the pieces I needed to start the next chapter, the best chapter of my life! Thank you Andrea!
Andrea is a wonderful teacher. She has opened up a window of knowledge that is often overlooked, the wisdom of the feminine life cycle. She helps you to access the four feminine archetypal energies to assist you in creating a life full of creativity and meaning.
A Regent woman has sovereignty over herself and her life;
she is dynamic and active.

"Andrea's Midlife workshop has transformed how I view myself as a 21st-century woman. She weaves theories of modern psychology with ancient mythology to unravel the negative female stereotypes our culture imposes. She empowers us with the knowledge of ancient traditions embracing our strengths and a road map of our uniquely female journey. She helps us reframe our life stages and to recognize our great inner power and beauty. It is a journey of self-discovery supported by the bonds of sisterhood and friendship. It is life-changing."
By claiming her sovereignty, a Regent woman chooses to run her own life. She strives to embody her potential. She makes choices that are hers alone to make, about who she will become, what she will do, and how she will pursue fulfillment during this new phase.
After spending her life devoted to caring for family, friends, and career, a Regent woman declares:
Now it's my turn!
By 2027 there will be over 87 million U.S. women over 45, recreating themselves in this new life stage.
What could 87 million women achieve if they embraced this rite of passage and harnessed its power? Anything they set their minds to.
