Welcome to another episode of the Women in the Middle podcast!

As the back-to-school time of year rapidly approaches, a certain level of uncertainty and anxiety begins to creep into the thoughts of a lot us who are facing an impending empty nest.

On this week’s episode of Women in the Middle, we’re talking about the thoughts and feelings that we face as our last chick heads off to college and you begin to deal with your empty nest.

My clients come to me with worry-riddled thoughts such as, “What will I do when I don’t have a kid at home?”, “Will things ever be the same?”, “Who will I be without my kids at home”, and “What will my relationship with my spouse look like now?”

Tune in for my tips on how you can lessen the overwhelm of your baby going off on their own with a little preparation, a “Life Lessons from Mom” list, and intentionally managing your thoughts.

I’ll share where your feelings are coming from and how to create a happier transition into this next phase of your life.
