Midlife is the Perfect Time for Women to Flourish!

Things change at midlife. The world sees us differently and has different demands and expectations from us. At the same time, everything we silenced and sacrificed to be good and to fit in begins to scream to be unleashed.

There's a choice you get to make:

Do you continue to try to suppress the voice inside that wants to find out who you'll be and what life will offer when you free her?

Do you run out the clock on your one precious life just going through the motions, sacrificing vitality and purpose for safety?

Do you accept the long-term costs to your health and happiness?

Or do you seize the opportunity?

Midlife is a gift, and right now is the perfect time for you to discover who you were meant to be, choose what you want from life - and go get it!

Michelle MarksWelcome! 

I'm Dr. Michelle Marks. I'm a New York State Licensed Psychologist and I specialize in helping women thrive in their middle years and beyond. 

Based on years of research and personal and professional experience, I've developed a signature approach to helping women flourish at midlife that integrates psychotherapy, coaching, and mentoring, and I'm delighted to share it with you!

I am particularly interested in helping women overcome what I call "Women's Stress Syndrome", and heal inherited trauma. Check out the links below to learn more about how I can help you transform stress, strengthen self-worth, discover authenticity,  and finally take on the leading role in your own beautiful, messy, and unique life story!

Women's Stress Syndrome

I believe the challenges women experience as we navigate our lives are often riffs on a common melody, and I'm passionate about working with women who are ready to finally play their own tune. 

Inherited Trauma

If you're carrying the burdens of your ancestors, I am here to offer you an approach to healing inherited trauma that honors those who came before you, while freeing yourself to heal, grow, and flourish!

"Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you're 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written, or you didn't go swimming in those warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It's going to break your heart. Don't let this happen.” ― Anne Lamott

Whether you're a late-bloomer, second actor, course-corrector, empty-nester, or just finally ready to take on the lead role in your own life story, I invite you to seize this opportunity to make the rest of your life, the best of your life! Contact me today to get started!
