Life & Health Coaching for Women in Midlife:

A Holistic Approach to Your Body in Midlife & Beyond

Does this sound familiar?

  • You feel like no matter what you do you can’t lose weight or curb your cravings.
  • No matter how much sleep you get, you never wake up feeling fully rested, and this shows up in your mental focus and attention span through the day (those “why did I come into this room again?” moments).
  • You’re tired of your joints aching
  • You promise that this week you'll get up early to get on your Peleton, but after a night of insomnia, you just can't muster the energy to get out of bed when the alarm goes off.
  • You want to get rid of that midlife muffin-top.
  • You're unable to bounce back from a night of hanging out with friends, or a night of poor sleep like you used to.
  • Theoretically you want to have sex, but every time your partner gives you "that look" and you immediately try to come up with an excuse not to be intimate that won't hurt his feelings (or just pretend you're asleep).
  • You're tired of hearing from your doctor that “you’re just hormonal” and in the same breath “your tests say you’re fine”.

You know that changing your diet and exercise habits will help you to look and feel better, but it feels like everything is so much harder as you start to get older. You're afraid that if things keep progressing the way that they are, you won't be able to course-correct.

Welcome to Midlife!

No one prepared you for this. Sure - you heard about midlife and hormonal changes, but your body is changing in ways that you didn’t expect.

Maybe you expected some hot flashes, but then there are the other things that are happening with your body too: the muffin-top, the insomnia, anxiety, brain fog, mood, energy crashes, and increased sensitivity to alcohol, sugar, and so many other foods.

And then there are the stresses that naturally occur that feel so much more overwhelming than they should. 

It's incredibly confusing, isolating, and disempowering!

This is Just the Beginning!

You’re not alone. Most women are also hit unexpectedly by the changes that go along with midlife. Not only can the hormonal changes that go along with peri menopause & menopause last 15+ years, but it seems like everything else in midlife is coming up creating the perfect storm of stress and overwhelm - which also has the ability to impact your health.

Unfortunately, all the ways that women have been taught to manage our health, through diet, exercise, and other traditional approaches is actually what causing you to experience the stuckness, frustration, and disappointment that you feel terrible in spite of trying to do all the right things . 

This is because your body in midlife are very different than it was in your 20's or 30's. And so it requires a different approach. You’ve never been taught to truly listen to the subtle cues that your body is communicating it needs and instead we're taught to self-medicate with diets, cookie cutter exercise protocols, medications, sugar & alcohol.

What we actually need is to learn how to interpret the signals your body is sending you as you enter this stage in your life & learn how to tailor your behaviors, health habits, routines to your body’s unique needs.

I can help you. I've been teaching women for 17+ years how to listen to the subtle signals that your body is sending, and address them with with lifestyle behaviors so that you feel good again.

Go From ...

  • Following a diet that has strict rules and leaves you feeling tired, overwhelmed, and resentful.
  • Having no energy or concentration, and having no idea how you'll make it through the day.
  • Not wanting to get out of bed in the morning despite going to bed early.
  • Being unsure why you feel bloated, being unsure what foods caused it, or what to do about it.
  • Feeling stressed, tired, anxious, or depressed even though you feel like you have a regular yoga or meditation practice.
  • Feeling out of control around food that you love because you know that it isn't 'good for you'.

To ...

  • Knowing how to work with your unique metabolism; knowing exactly what to eat, how to exercise, and how to optimize your sleep so that you feel at your absolute best every day.
  • Sleeping through the night, and waking up feeling rested.
  • Having good digestion, no longer worrying what food is going to bloat you like a balloon, and finally feeling good in your clothes despite the time of month.
  • Feeling in control of your emotions & being able to handle them in a healthy, productive way. (No more flying off handle when there's another effing plate in the sink!)
  • Having your own back & being able to trust yourself to follow through on your commitments and no longer feel like you’re the last item on your list.

Focusing on the positive and implementing even the small things in my relationship with food has freed me from the all or nothing attitude. 

Foods are not simply good or bad, but there are foods that are better for me. Small steps are better than no steps. I’m realizing that my relationship with food stems from deeper longtime issues . 

SO thankful that our conversations are bringing light to what needs to go and what needs to stay.


I found Elizabeth during a pretty critical time in my life. She helped me walk through the quagmire of that journey of really just keeping on track in my life. She was able to pivot as my life circumstances changed and was there to cheer me on, help me focus, and helped me in telling myself the truth about my situation.

I felt totally comfortable in sharing pretty much anything with her, and It was freeing to be able to say the words that had been rolling around in my brain. The most helpful thing was helping me create a foundation from which to pivot in the directions I wanted to go.


You don't need another diet, exercise program, or someone else to tell you what to do!

Traditional diet and fitness advice that is based on college-aged men doesn’t work for women in menopause & peri menopause because our bodies respond differently as we move out of the reproductive years.

What you want, is to work with your body's unique needs so that you can drop the weight, drop the overwhelm, and finally start seeing results with your effort that you weren't able to get with traditional methods.

Introducing the
Midlife Symptom Solution:

A 6 month private coaching program designed for women in midlife who want to finally drop the restrictive diet rules, get back in touch with  their bodies, and reach the energy, body shape, and mental clarity that she was once proud of.

Through my 17 years of experience working with women in midlife, I’ve helped 1000’s of women take back control over their health and their bodies so that they knew exactly how to get the results of physical and mental health they’ve always desired. But doing it from a place of self love instead of self loathing.

What You'll Get:

Over the course of our 6 months together, we’ll take a deep dive into what you’re doing and why, so that we can come up with the right set of health habits for your life and body, you feel good, and your hormones feel balanced and stable. 

  • Together we will uncover the exact foods that will help you to shed the hormonal weight and keep it off, and support healthy hormones in a way that is unique to your metabolism - AND takes the guess work away from what to eat.
  • Learn how to optimize you time, energy & priorities so that you feel more in control and never feel like your health is at the mercy of of your circumstances
  • Develop awareness and responsibility to yourself to do those things that make you feel good not just in the moment, but help you to feel in control of your life and health.
  • Establish emotional balance so that you feel less anxiety, irritation, and anger, and more calm, ease, joy, and love.
  • Break unhelpful patterns and habits that lead to over-drinking, overeating, or eating for unexplained reasons.
  • Learn how to work with and shape your own brain so that you stop sabotaging yourself, and instead become consistent in the habits that will help you to feel good.
  • Design a physical activity plan that is right for your body and schedule.

What Clients say

This is completely worth the financial and time commitment. If you put in the work, you will see results.

I would 100% recommend Elizabeth for life/weight loss coaching. She is knowledgeable about healthy eating and exercise. I never felt overwhelmed or like it wasn't something I could do.

Not only am I more confident with how I look, but I have more confidence over all and am overall just happier and mentally healthier. Amazing experience overall!


I felt stuck and had lost my momentum, I couldn't get my groove back no matter what I tried (and I tried a lot of things). I needed help to get back on a track of health and intentional living.

You have helped me fill up my tool box with ways to handle whatever comes my way. I feel like I can keep my momentum going no matter what gets thrown at me now.

We worked together on ALL of me, not just one aspect.

My family has noticed my increased activity and healthier eating habits. After a while they started joining me too! I feel like I am firing on all cylinders again after wandering aimlessly for a couple of years trying to figure out how to be me in an older (but still strong ) body.


Hi! I'm Elizabeth

Master Certified Health & Life Coach for Women in Midlife
Podcast Host - The Done with Dieting Podcast

I'm a Master Certified Health & Life Coach and I help women in midlife because there is so much that changes in a woman's life at this time. Not only the physical and physiological changes in your body, but as well as all of the other stressful demands that seem to accompany this season of life:

  • the physical changes that go along with this phase of life and aging
  • the emotional demands that accompany our changing family structures
  • the physiological changes of how our body responds to external stimulus
  • the mental load that we carry as we change our identity and how we see ourselves in the world

And it is my passion to spread the word that you are not alone, you are not crazy, and you are not wrong for wanting to be seen and heard.

We can fix it. All of it.

I host a weekly podcast called Done with Dieting: a podcast for the woman who, in spite of all of these demands, has been socialized to focus on her appearance, selflessly do for others, and in doing so becomes the best supporting actress in the movie of her own life.

I'm a Chicago native, but now conduct my coaching business as an Expat in Mexico, and meet with my clients through video, focusing on the areas of health: eating, moving, stress and sleep management, body image and how we think about them through a DEI & feminist lens.

  • Certified Feminist Coach - Redesign Your Mind
  • Certified Health Coach - American Council on Exercise

  • Certified Women’s Hormonal Health Coach - Metabolic Effect
  • Certified Personal Trainer - American Council on Exercise

How It Works

The Done with Dieting framework is a fluid, non-linear, 360 degree approach to your life and body because your health does not exist in a vacuum, on its own. Your health is influenced by every other area of your life.


You’re going to learn and decode the subtle signals and signs that are your body’s way of communicating exactly what it needs, what’s wrong, and how to fix it.


You’ll get crystal clear on your likes, dislikes, wants, desires, and goals to build the habits and behaviors that you envision yourself doing in the future so that you can start practice doing those habits now and you can stay healthy as you age.


Behavior change can bring up a lot of emotion - both positive and negative, usually in the form of doubt, or resistance. So when this happens, you’ll learn what an emotion is telling you so that when you experience it, you can expect it, and understand how to deal with it instead of distracting yourself with unhealthy coping mechanisms.


One of the reasons we stop doing things that we know are good for us is because we are unable to see our progress, and as a result, lose commitment and belief that our goal is attainable. When this occurs, you’ll learn how to refocus yourself so that you don’t give up on yourself, and you follow through on what you want most over what you want in the moment.


You’ll overcome the barriers and obstacles that get in the way of prioritizing your own needs over the wants of others. As a result, you’ll create a deep and meaningful relationship with yourself, which will quiet the inner critic that tells you you’re doing it wrong, and will help you to achieve greater connection with others.


You’ll develop the skill of having your own back - a three part process of

  1. not overcommitting
  2. following through on commitments you make to yourself, and
  3. not judging yourself, but rather learning when things don’t go as planned through non-judgmental curiosity.
You will learn that you have the answers you seek inside yourself. You just need to learn how to uncover them! You will feel fully resourced, and never again feel the need to seek answers from outside of you.

You might be thinking...

You might be thinking that you don’t need ‘all that’. You might be thinking - "6 months seems like too much," “I just need someone to tell me what to do,” “I just need to try harder,” or that “I should be able to do this by myself.”

Your relationship with food, exercise, your body and yourself will not change by working harder or following another diet. The only way to be done with dieting is to understand what foods, exercises, and other lifestyle habits work best for your body and life.

As such, there are a lot of unhelpful, and just plain wrong, health rules to unlearn.

After years of identifying as a natural caregiver, its hard for women to ask for help.

You are so incredibly capable in all other areas of your life, and your health feels like the one thing you just can’t get a handle on.

You need this approach because your health is not a silo.

It's not something that happens independent of the rest of your life. If it were, you would have no problem sticking to a diet and exercise program. And it’s not something that once you learn all the things, you’ll automatically do them.

You’ve already been down that road, and it’s fallen short of it’s promises. And we know that because you’re here now.

We’ve been taught through endless diets that we ‘just need to’:

  • Eat less
  • Move more
  • Eat these foods
  • Those foods are bad

If you want to have a healthy relationship with food, your body, exercise, and be able to eat a cupcake and not hate yourself for it, we need to dig in to the messages that you received growing up about food, your body, your worth, how you identify yourself and how all of those things influence how you take care of yourself.

Anything short of that isn’t going to stick!

Turning 50 and other personal events had me at a low place, which is why I originally scheduled the consult. I am so glad I did.

Working with you has fundamentally changed my outlook on life and my relationship to my health. I see through all the garbage of diet culture that is deeply programmed in me and learning the only voice that matters about my food choices, or my life, is mine. I am amazed how little I think about food now. I used to wake up and think immediately about what I would eat for breakfast. Now it isn't a concern because I know what I will do.

I feel so much better, emotionally and physically, and know it will only get better. It was worth the investment in myself.

weight loss private coaching

through my individual work with Elizabeth, I developed a healthy relationship with food and even better my entire family developed a healthier relationship with food!

I can eat whatever I want to eat and there are no forbidden foods. The negative ruminations and guilt associated with eating is completely gone.

It also translated to all aspects of my life. I quit completely any negative self-talk or judgements and developed more self-compassion when things don't go as planned.


weight loss private coaching

Elizabeth got in my head in the best way! I find myself applying what I learned from her across situations. Talking to friends, work situations, all of a sudden the lessons I learned, they were everywhere! Being able to apply and share that knowledge (which for me is just making sure it's further ingrained) is amazing!

I had an incredible experience with Elizabeth and I'm so, so grateful to her for sharing her experience and knowledge, for her patience, and knowing that she'd be there to talk things through and troubleshoot with! Sometimes I would get anxiety before a session knowing it was going to be a "tough" one, but I always, always left the session feeling positive and having learned so many new things.


It's Your Time!

Let's Do This!

If you are done fighting with your body and want to create a healthy relationship with food and your body, there isn't a better, long lasting, permanent way.

Emotional eating, cravings, insomnia, low energy & productivity, feeling resentful and resigned about midlife, or second guessing yourself about what you can eat and what you can’t (and the subsequent negative self-talk) can be a thing of the past. All you need to do is say yes.

Say yes to yourself.

Private coaching provides a safe space, because we move at your pace, we address your unique body's needs, explore what's been holding you back, learn sustainable habits and mindset principles that you can’t just forget - because it will change how you think about not only food, but … everything else in your life too!

Including yourself.

Whether you know exactly what success looks like on the other side of your goal, or you have no idea what you want - you just know that what you’re doing isn’t working for you.

Take the first step toward healing your hormones and discover your unique strategy of lifestyle habits and self-care that will make you look and feel amazing!
