You feel like you're drifting out at sea.  You look around and don't seem to recognize the life you're living. 

Somehow things got off course during life's transitions and you didn't realize how far you've drifted from where you want to be. You're not even sure how did that happen.


The unexpected difficulties of this new chapter are causing unsettling feelings so you're questioning your future.

You just experienced a recent life transition which woke you up and made you realize that something needs to change. 

You’re tired of feeling:

  • Like you don’t recognize your own life and don’t know what to do about it

  • Stuck and not sure how to make the best decision to move forward
