Thoroughly unprepared, we take the step into the afternoon of life. Worse still, we take this step with the false beliefs that our former truths and our ideals will serve us as they used to. But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the experience of life’s morning, for what was great in the morning will be little at evening and what in the morning was true, at evening will have become a lie.
– C.G. Jung

Perimenopause, Midlife & Menopause Coaching
Every woman is unique. Every woman crosses this territory in her own way and in her own time. You don’t need to make the journey alone. I am reaching back across the rivers of change, offering my hand and expertise to help you.
Designed Specifically for You.
My private coaching is not a cookie-cutter program or a one size fits all solution. Instead, my program is personalized for each client. I design your program around where you are now, what challenges you are facing, and your goals and dreams.
My coaching and mentoring are based on the principles of archetypal and depth psychology, which include creativity, mythology, story, and much more. The focus is on acknowledging the present, unlocking the past, and creating an action template focused on writing your life story’s next chapters with intention.
We discover what you want to change, who you want to become, and what you want to do in your Regency years. By understanding and mapping your life story, we work together to remember and rediscover your True North.
How do I get started?
We begin by having a thirty-minute free consultation call to see if we are a good fit for each other. Then, if I don’t think I can help you, I will tell you before you spend a cent.
Finally, we discuss my suggestions for a coaching program and how you would like to proceed.

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.
I have found the Women's Wisdom Village meetings to be a source of comfort and support this year. Meeting with you and those who attend has been a saving grace during the pandemic lockdown. I also find the journal questions a means to explore myself and my own thinking, helping me to understand myself and be introspective. I appreciate your guidance, thank you.

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.
I was swimming thru deep waters of undesired emotions trying to find my way to the surface. This is when I came upon Andrea’s Women’s Wisdom Village.
The Pandemic, job loss, raging politics, and my sons moving far away was the final shoe to drop of the empty nest. I was also dealing with the amplified challenges a 40-year relationship while in lockdown; all this was overwhelming my psyche. I knew I had survived before, thru terrible situations of the past, but this was a whole new level and I needed a leg up, a respite from all of it while staying in the boxed-in world.
Andrea’s stories from the village began to resonate with me for reasons I couldn’t understand. It became more clear the more I listened; I found myself in those stories, they were reflecting themes of my life. I went thru the 12-week private coaching program with Andrea, and as we pulled away the layers and revealed my personal story, I was able to take a step back and grasp my life experience with a new set of eyes.
I have made it through the worst of it and I feel a fresh current to follow. Andrea’s counsel and guidance through this storm have been a saving grace, a life raft in a raging sea.
I feel the compass in hand with this new perspective, I found what was always there, the wisdom and truth of my personal story through the ancient telling of tales that traveled through time to help me.
To support women I have developed two unique offerings.

“The Rise of Regency: Women’s Power Years 45-70”
In this presentation, I engaged with current research, women’s rising power, principles of psychology, and life stage theory. Women’s life spans have almost doubled since 1900. This has created a new stage of life for women, potentially lasting another 20-25 years, enfolding within it perimenopause, midlife, and menopause. Now, potentially, 60 is the new 40, and 70 is the new 50! The power of women over 40 in culture, business, and politics are on the rise. Where does this power come from and what might it mean for women, society, and humanity?
Conference Breakout | 1 hour
This interactive session invites women to explore the possibility that aging is not a disease, and why many women hit their stride after 40, 50, or even 60. We will discover how perimenopause, midlife, and menopause can be among the most exciting and creative times of your life. Find out how your story and your beliefs about it affect everything you do and think. Begin to recover, remember, and rediscover your passions and your “True North” so you can embrace and make the most of your Regency years. These sessions include interactive exercises, writing prompts, and take home exercises to expand your perspective on this stage of life
Conference Workshop | 3 hours
This three-hour workshop includes the conference break out content as well as a deeper exploration of Regency, the 25 years from 45-70. Through discussion and creative group exercises, we will envision how these power years include a treasure that is revealed while experiencing the physiological and psychological refiner’s fires of perimenopause, menopause and midlife. We will discover that these alchemical transformations are not diseases, nor are they the endings of vitality and meaning; they are physical, spiritual, and emotional transformations, they are rites of passage. Emerging from this fire, women in their Regency years are rising up to forge their experience and wisdom into influence and power. We will engage with the power of metaphor and myth in creating the beginnings of an action plan for the chapters ahead. We will utilize a template to help create our own rite of passage ceremonies to honor and activate the potential within this time of our lives.
