Pause | PIVOT | PLAY

Midlife is when the universe gently places her hands upon your shoulders,

pulls you close, and whispers in your ear:

"I’m not screwing around. All of this pretending and performing...has to go.

Your armor is preventing you from growing into your gifts."

-Brene Brown

My Philosophy


I believe in the power and beauty of middle years.  I see it as a time of rebirth.  I work with women to rediscover who they are at this juncture and what they want in their next chapter.  This can be with their career, family, relationships or self-development.  I help clients break down what is blocking them from using their power and give them tools as they embark on their personal journey.

As a midlife coach, I have witnessed amazing friends and clients begin to question themselves or their situations. They've reached a point where their current life doesn't fit any more. They are ready for something new, but are not clear what.


In reality, this is only part of the midlife transition.  The middle years are also when women's wisdom is stronger than ever.  And if a woman can pause and pivot, this will be a time for healing, understanding and rebirth.

I am passionate about helping women pause, take stock of their strengths, and move forward.  

I work with women one-on-one. I also lead women's circles. 

If you are ready to explore, I would love to work with you on your journey.

With gratitude,



MY Background


I have spent most of my career helping others understand why people think and act as they do.


After earning a Masters’ in Technology in Education from Harvard University, I spent over a decade as a designer and producer of educational software and websites.  I have also spent a decade as a producer and host for local public radio stations KQED, KALW and KPFA. Simultaneously, I have used interview and research skills to help consumer based public and non-profit companies gain consumer insights.  

I took a midlife gap year with my family and lived in Malaysia while writing for an expat online publication and mentoring a Pakistani refugee. 

Back in the states, I pivoted and studied Coaching and Energy Leadership at The Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC).  I specialize in career and life transitions for midlife women.  My clients have been from a range of careers: managers, writers, physical therapists, project managers, marketing execs, teachers, human resources executives and expats.  All women in midlife.
