Do your “Golden Years” feel more like “Rusty Days”? Are you worried about unexpected changes you, or perhaps your partner, are facing and how these are impacting your life and relationship? Are you surprised to find low energy, unexpected sadness, or just a lack of passion for life that is keeping you stuck and away from the life you imagined? Facing the certainty that you are in the later stage of your life may bring up regrets, limitations, and the realities of our mortality.

Are you having trouble sleeping, feeling tired or anxious?  Have changes like retirement, moving or down-sizing, or just feeling “older than your rotary phone” left you feeling unsettled, aimless, or just wanting to feel back in control of your life?
