Can You Relate?

Retirement! It's celebrated, planned, and looked forward to. It's also full of surprises like emotional surprises. 

It all starts well as we imagine and anticipate what retirement will look like: Setting our own schedule, doing what we want, not answering to bosses. It all sounds perfect.

We move to anticipation as the day grows closer and then we enter the honeymoon stage: all is perfect! Like a shiny new car we've saved for, everything works and it drives like a dream.

Then reality sets in. This is often accompanied by 'what now?'. It can feel like something is missing. The new house is great but it's hard to make new friends. The kind of friends you have shared history. One day is just like the other and can make you feel a little lost. 

Sometimes you start looking for the next chapter. Here's the good news. YOU write the chapter. However, you might need a little guidance to help you find the subject. 

Life Coaching can help you navigate the surprises that come with retirement and discover new purpose. You can create your best retirement.

Portrait of Senior Woman

I have been a colleague of Deborah for many years and have come to appreciate her authenticity, listening skills, compassion, and graciousness. Her coaching style effectively moves between process and content. She helps you to focus and prioritize.

Judie M.

Middle Aged Woman

I am in a transitionary place in my career and life. Debby helped me to identify the aspects of my current career that are fulfilling, and she worked with me to develop a plan to transfer my talents and interests to a new career path. She started by helping me identify what was making me anxious and dissatisfied with my current situation. Debby also has many years of working with people in addiction recovery. Her experience helped me gain insight into effective communication and boundary setting with my addicted family member. I'm a very self-sufficient person and didn't think I really "needed" life coaching. I am so grateful for my decision to work with Debby. I feel a wonderful sense of peace as I work to put the plans Debby helped me envision into reality.
