Empty-Nesters: If it's harder than you thought, there's help

Parenthood is an amazing journey! Babies are born innocent and completely dependent on us. We watch them develop and grow and brace ourselves for each new stage, wishing in our gut we could somehow stop the clock. First they crawl, then they walk, then they're up and running!

Before we know it our lives become consumed with their busy schedules. As they enter high school we begin to think about what life will be like when they grow up and move on with their own lives. While we want them to be independent and free to do what they like, a part of us wants to hold onto them forever.

Many of us get wrapped up in our daily lives that we don't give it much thought. When the day comes we are ill prepared to cope with the feelings of loneliness. While I have heard some parents say they can't wait for their teen to move out of the house, most have shared with me that they secretely feel a deep sense of sadness and loss.

Coaching can help you prepare for the dramatic changes you are about to face. I, as a coach, am interested in you and respect you. I will support you in finding where you are and where you'd like to be. Coaching is a partnership, a relationship based on trust and honesty.

People are living longer and they say that today the new 60 is 40! There is plenty of time for us to realize our dreams and achieve our goals!

Coaching has become popular among athletes and executives. Why not hire a coach to help your through life?

Coaching is not about digging into or dwelling on the past. It is about moving forward - learning where you are today, where you would like to be tomorrow, and what you will need to do to get there.

Not only can we recognize our dreams and goals, but we can achieve them!

Imagine how proud our children will be of us when they see us working towards our life's goals. Our kids don't want us sulking and sad as they move on with their life - they want to see us happy and whole! We matter very much to them. Let's make them proud!
