You don't have to settle for the stereotypes of aging. Midlife and beyond offers the chance to live into the fullness of who you are, rather than perform from the smallness of who you've been told you should be.
Live your life, not others expectations
In our youth-obsessed culture, the second half of life is often framed as a season of increasing invisibility or irrelevance. The reality is that the second half of life offers us the opportunity to live our biggest life yet, if we are able to bring our whole selves, our most authentic and original selves, to the table in order to place meaningful and creative work in the world.
Much of the first half of our lives is focused on conforming to the expectations of others in order to gain acceptance and affirmation. In that process, we often exile or silence important parts of ourselves in order to be accepted, loved or affirmed.
At mid-life, the parts of ourselves that we have silenced will insist on being heard and acknowledged. If we don't pay attention, these unlived selves will orchestrate a "crisis" in order to get our attention. Repeating patterns of broken relationships and frustrated career goals, of spiraling in patterns of indecision and frustration, of needing to always be in control, of irruptive bursts of anger or periods of lethargy and tiredness, may all be attempts by our unlived selves to get us to pay attention.
Life beyond midlife has the potential to be your most meaningful, creative and fulfilling season yet. I can work with you to help make that a reality. Let's get started!
I work with people at midlife and beyond who are committed to living their best life through the cultivation of their most authentic selves. Let's get started!
Hi, I'm Loralee.
I work with smart, high-achieving people at mid-life and beyond, to create their most meaningful and rewarding life through the use of a Jungian informed coaching process that will help them identify false self narratives, uproot self-limiting behaviors and cultivate a lifestyle rooted in a healthier connection to soul and their most authentic and creative self.
I do not work from a formulaic template, but use a customized process of Jungian-informed deep listening, reflection, encouragement and creative prompts that are designed to work with the inherent creative trajectory of each individual's psyche. This process has been proven to offer more sustainable and authentic transformative growth.
I'd love to talk with you about the best way to start your journey towards a more meaningful and fulfilling life!
Some of the places I've taught
What people Are Saying:
Loralee is very warm, genuine and personable. Her probes were gentle, her responses affirming, encouraging and clarifying. Loralee was particularly helpful in allowing me to capture and channel the longing and guidance from my own unconscious, and to re-establish connection with my own true Self.
Whatever material arose each week, from my dreams, life events, or other sources, Loralee was able to skillfully weave it through our conversations and use it to create progressive movement toward my personal and creative goals. She always seemed to know the right questions to ask, when to ask, and how to create positive outcomes from our conversations. I feel we have come a long way in a very short time and, as a result, I feel much better prepared to write the next chapter of my life story.
Educator, Trainer, Facilitator
“Working with Loralee, I came to see how much I had silenced my own voice. She taught me to value my intuition and showed me how to use it as a tool to reach deeper truths. These truths are personal, meaningful and serve as the foundation for my creative work.
With great care and compassion, Loralee guided me to discover and name the foundational lies that were holding me back. I now understand that the creative unconscious works in many ways, and works in our lives as deeply as we allow it. And I discovered that even though I’m not a religious person, I’m very spiritual.
But I think the most beneficial part of our work together — was what she calls ‘boots on the ground’. Loralee challenged and inspired me to be disciplined with my intuition and imagination so I could put my creative work out into the world. Through her insight and guidance, ultimately I was able to see that my strongest gifting is as a writer.”
There are lots of ways to get started!
