How many times have you felt like this?
I lived my whole life for my kids. Now I feel abandoned. I’ve been a mom for so long, I don’t know who I am anymore. I need a life. My life has always been my kids. This is so hard. I hate it.
Does this desperate plea go
around and around in your head?
I need to find something I love to do. But I’ve no clue what that could be.
Or have you thought…
→ I was so lonely when my kids moved out. I was always a stay at home mom so I had no idea what to do with myself.
→ I can’t stand it when they tell me I have to get a life for myself! How the hell do I do that?
→ I’ve been so busy for years taking care of everyone else. How can I be so overwhelmingly proud and happy and so empty at the same time?
→ While I don’t regret a single second of taking care of my family, and I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat, I’m now realizing how much I’ve neglected myself.
→ I rarely do anything for just me. My health and fitness has declined and my life has just always revolved around them.
→ This is what it has all been about….them growing up. I guess I wasn’t ready yet.
And even worse…
I’m not doing so well, feeling all alone. I miss them so much. They were my life. Is this my new reality? If so, it’s not for me. I am nothing without them.
I get it.
Because I was you.
I was struggling to figure out what was next after my kids stopped needing me so much. I had all this extra time which was making me feel anxious because I shouldn’t be wasting it on just myself. Why wasn’t I overjoyed that I now had control over my life? Something was missing. I couldn’t put my finger on what was bugging me, like a mosquito that you can hear but can’t see. The me that I once thought I knew was now restless, searching, uncomfortable, and itchy. There was something I forgot to do but I couldn’t quite remember what it was…
And then it finally hit me one day while in Target.
I was watching a frazzled mother with a six month old baby and four year old toddler juggle between answering her cell phone, and telling her toddler to put down the toy he desperately wanted. I peeked at her quietly and listened to her conversation on the phone. She answered her husband’s questions of what was for dinner and yes, she made his dentist appointment for him, and reminded him of his mother visiting that weekend. And that’s when this feeling overwhelmed me and it became crystal clear what I had lost.
When I was raising my kids it was always
about them and my husband first.
And because of that, I really lost my identity.
And because of that, I really lost me.
I started to realize that having kids when I was young was crazy and hard. But I now had so many years ahead of me to focus on myself. Could I somehow use all the knowledge and skills I had learned to possibly try something new? Could I actually find the dreams I crumpled up like a ball of paper and tossed aside? I was determined to try since feeling stuck in one place was making me miserable. Taking action created so much clarity. I decided to do something so that other woman would not struggle like I did for so long.
You can figure out what’s next with your life.
It’s hard to put into words what exactly you are feeling and you may not have told anyone out of fear they won’t understand. Your life is perfect! What could you possibly complain about?
Stop wasting time trying to figure out what that something is all by yourself. You’ve probably been doing that for a while by reading books, scrolling Facebook, Goggling topics or watching YouTube videos trying to find the answer.
And maybe some of it has helped. But maybe not quite all the way you hoped.
You need help.
This is where I come in to help you look at where are you are now and help you move towards where you want to be. Or maybe you don’t even know where to start? That’s okay you are not alone. Many of my clients have no idea but just want the help to begin.This is where I come in to help you look at where are you are now and help you move towards where you want to be.

This is not for you if…
You are afraid of hard work and being truly committed to yourself. This is not a quick fix. I will always expect your best and will give you straight advice if you ask. I am pretty good at reading between the lines and there may be topics that are off limits. I will respect that but don’t be surprised if it comes up again since it may be something that you need to look at. This is an investment in yourself and there is no reason to feel guilty.
As my father always told me, “The only person that can give you a guilt trip is yourself.”
“Alice knows what she is doing and she brings all of the pieces together with care and attention to detail. She was very tuned into my comfort level and intuitive towards my personal growth with class and care. I felt like I could really tell her anything in full confidentiality.”

“If my issue was work or something very personal, she always had advice and options to move forward. She let me choose the topics we discuss rather than set her own agenda. But she also asked helpful, solid questions if I was at a loss of what to do next. “
− Jean M.
I’m sure you have some questions about coaching.
What the heck is coaching?
Coaching is your journey to put your finger on your true purpose and design your clear vision to then live it. Coaching is not therapy. Therapy looks into your past to help with your present life. I help you look at your current life and guide you on how to move forward. Through exercises, phone calls, and emails, you will discover wonderful things about yourself with constant a-ha! moments.
What will you get out of coaching?
So, so much, the possibilities are endless. You will grow in ways you did and didn’t expect. Clients hire me to achieve their dream life, and we spend our time together to make it happen. But don’t be surprised if you discover new things about yourself. Your dream may change to be in line with this new person emerging. Different parts of your personal and professional life will be positively affected. You won’t be rushed by me but coaching tends to speed up your personal growth faster than staying in your same comfortable place on the couch watching Netflix. (Don’t get me wrong. I can binge-watch with the best of ’em.)
