Mastering Midlife Mentorship
Short Digestible Modules
Convenient pacing of new lessons with live video/webinar, supplemental reading, downloadable resources, and handouts.
These are just some of the symptoms your midlife clients (or maybe you!) are experiencing daily and they can’t figure out what’s wrong. They’re miserable and they want answers.
But There is More Beyond the Symptoms … even if your clients have breezed through midlife, their hormonal decline has not happened without consequences.
By 60, 70, and Beyond, Osteoporosis, Cognitive Decline, Heart Health, Genito-Urinary Damage and More Become the Norm for Women . . .
This is Not Acceptable.
For so many women in midlife, hormone restoration (NOT ‘hormone balance’) is the elusive missing piece. What your clients need is guidance, encouragement and in-depth testing and solutions.
At 42, I went into perimenopause and by age 47, I was fully menopausal. My highly acclaimed NYC holistic doctor wanted to put me on a truckload of supplements, benzodiazepines and a risky bone health drug.
Yes, you heard that right. That was the treatment from a holistic doctor. A well known one.
No, thank you.
I knew there had to be a better way, so I went back to school, sought out several mentorships with in-the-clinical-trenches doctors, studied nonstop and found the answers to my problems.
Fast forward 10 years later, I now work with hundreds of women (with the same struggles I had) to help them understand the challenges and changes of midlife, find solutions and live a happy & healthy life. Together, Kristin and I can teach you to do the same thing.
By age 43, I was certain I had lost complete agency over my health. I was constantly restricting in order to prevent weight gain, I was getting no sleep thanks to insomnia and hot flashes, my joints felt like I was 80, I had zero libido and was certain my gut was a mess. My doctor’s opinion? Nothing was wrong with me. I BEGGED for testing – was it Lymes disease? Was it RA? Was it low thyroid? Was it my hormones?? Instead I was told, “you’re too young for this to be hormones” and that was that.
I was at a crossroads: let my health (and marriage) fall apart, or get angry and take charge for some change.
I went back to school, I dug deep into endocrinology, I learned to read tests, I got mentored by doctors with deep clinical experience, and I never stopped researching.
With a targeted approach to my health, I turned it all around.
Now I’m in my 50s and am convinced that this may be my best decade yet … as it can be for all women. What is needed is education, guidance and support – there is no magic pill, there is no “single cause” – we women are complex creatures with a symphony in our bodies that just needs some fine-tuning and direction. Without a doubt, Maria and I can give you the skills you need to serve women in a way that will change not only your life but the lives of your clients as well.

Chronic problems at midlife are preventing your clients from feeling their best and living the life they want … and deserve. They need you to understand the problems in order to effectively move them toward the solutions.
WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM?
WHEN DOES THE MENTORSHIP START AND HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
The mentorship intensive lasts for 6 months so that you are able to transform your business and start serving midlife women as soon as possible. This mentorship will empower you with knowledge and confidence to help this underserved population of women.
WHEN DO THE CALLS TAKE PLACE? WHAT IF I MISS A CALL?
The Mentorship starts Monday, April 10, 2023 and runs through late September 2023. During that time, we will have seven live calls that will be hosted on scheduled Tuesdays from 11:00am – 12:30pm EST as well as multiple guest lecturers. To learn more, download the full class syllabus here. (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Bg-naasVPdmLptTbnzdKUkORn36tM-j0W5KKIva4a2s/edit?usp=sharing)
If you cannot attend live, all calls will be recorded and you will have extended access to both your cohort’s mentorship calls as well as the guest lectures (including all past and future guest lectures if you join the MMM-CMS Graduate Community membership!).
Questions will be solicited in advance as well as on the calls. However, we do recommend attending the live calls as they are a wonderful opportunity for you to engage with the class and have all of your questions answered in real time.
WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT FOR THE PROGRAM?
Each Level contains roughly 3-8 modules, and each lesson ranges between 20-70 minutes. On average, each Level contains between 3-5 hours of lecture material as well as transcripts, worksheets, and additional resources. The modules within each Level will be released in batches and you will have multiple weeks to complete those before the next batch is delivered.
We estimate that it will take roughly 2-4 hours per week to get through the material (depending upon your level of experience & learning speed).
Each live call is roughly 75-90 minutes, and there will be break weeks in the program where there will be no call or material delivered.
In total, you can likely expect to commit 5 hours per week on the program, depending upon your learning pace and background.
WHAT IF I FALL BEHIND
Sometimes life happens and it becomes difficult to keep up with something in which we have enrolled. If you fall behind, don’t worry – you have access to the program for 60 days beyond the closing of the Exam Window (see Syllabus for details). While you may miss live Q&A and Case Review sessions, these will be recorded so you can listen to them at your convenience.
ARE THERE ANY ASSESSMENTS?
Yes, there are short quizzes at the end of each module that you will submit online. These will ensure that you have developed a fluency to understand the material. In addition, a long-form Final Exam and Written Case Study with Protocol each with a minimum passing grade of 80% are required in order to receive the MMM-CMS designation.
ARE THERE ANY PREREQUISITES TO JOIN THIS MENTORSHIP?
There are no specific training prerequisites but we suggest that at a minimum you have completed, or are in the final stages of completing, a functional health coach or nutrition certification. In general, the program is delivered to meet both beginner through advanced-level individuals, but is geared toward health professionals who have some experience in nutrition, basic hormones, and coaching women. As long as you have a strong desire to learn, we will teach you the terminology and science you need to understand to have a wide breadth of knowledge in female health at midlife.
With that being said, having some previous background in anatomy & physiology, metabolic health, and midlife women’s health will help you to better comprehend the depth of the program. If this is not you, do not be deterred from applying. Instead, send us an email with your background and concerns. We will evaluate your individual situation and will issue a full refund before class begins.
If you have additional questions regarding whether you’re a good fit for our program, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
DO I NEED TO BE BASED IN THE US TO ENROLL?
No! The Mentorship in Midlife Mastery is open to students all over the world. You just need to be able to connect to the internet. Currently, the program is only offered in English.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE PROGRAM?
All graduates will have free access to the training platform and all available downloads for 60 days following certification. Lifetime access is available as an optional upgrade via membership in the MMM-CMS Graduate Community. Such option must be exercised within 60 days after graduation.
If you choose to join the MMM-CMS Graduate Community membership, you will receive lifetime access to the training platform as long as it is maintained on our server, as well as access to our Canva business tools and templates, Fullscript Favorites, future updates in all educational materials, a discussion board in an MMM-CMS Graduate community within Mighty Networks, all previous and future guest lectures, and quarterly practitioner support calls to provide you with even more support and guidance as you build and refine your practice.
As we continue to revise and expand the program to include even more research and practitioner resources, the value of our program increases, therefore, tuition prices may have increased from the previous round and will continue to increase into the future with new rounds that we host which may affect pricing of the MMM-CMS Graduate Community membership.
HOW MUCH ACCESS DO I HAVE TO THE TWO OF YOU?
We host all live calls and will be available each week for office hours. In addition, we will be engaging with you regularly in the private MMM-CMS student group in Mighty Networks. We are very hands-on and although the video modules are pre-recorded, all of your learning with us will be in real-time.
WILL YOU BE PROVIDING ANY BUSINESS COACHING?
Yes, before completion of the program we will have one extensive group call on business coaching tips and best practices.
IS THIS A CERTIFICATION PROGRAM?
Yes, when you complete the Mentorship in Midlife Mastery Certification Program, you will receive a beautiful certificate and graduate badge indicating your completion date and hours of continuing education earned, as well as permission to use the official designation of MMM Certified Midlife Specialist (MMM-CMS).
ARE CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS AVAILABLE?
At present, we are in the process of applying for continuing education credits from the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP), the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA), and eventually the National Board for Health & Wellness Coaching (NBHWC), but we cannot guarantee if or when such CEUs will be granted. Any future CEU recognition will result in the granting of a CEU certificate to all eligible MMM graduates as needed.
WHAT MAKES THIS MENTORSHIP UNIQUE?
As far as we know, there is NOTHING that even comes close to this mentorship. While there are several programs that focus on menstrual health and general women’s health coaching, the one thing that is glaringly lacking is that there is either no focus on midlife or menopause except possibly in one module, if any, in a larger program. We focus extensively and exclusively on the perimenopause and postmenopause phases of a woman’s life, and provide extensive training on understanding HRT and coaching women who would like to benefit from it.
IS FINANCING AVAILABLE?
We do have payment plans available but these are limited by the duration of the program as well as the fixed costs related to clinical tests provided with enrollment.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
You may withdraw your enrollment up until 14 days prior to the start date of the program. If you withdraw before 14 days prior to the curriculum start, you will be given a refund of any amount you’ve paid minus your deposit of $1,400, which is non-refundable. After this time, no refunds will be issued.
We understand that personal and family emergencies can occur during a student’s time of enrollment that might prevent completion of the course within the allotted 6 months. Requests for deferment will be considered on an individual basis, by petition to the Mentorship Instructors. Deferment is available only for the next academic year of the program. The cost for deferment to the following class is $500. Any student granted a deferment must retake the entire program from the beginning.
If you withdraw at any time during the program, full payment is still due, as once registration closes, we cannot give your spot to another student.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I ENROLL?
If the enrollment period is open, upon completing the enrollment registration and submitting your tuition payment or deposit, you will receive an email confirmation of your enrollment status.
Soon thereafter you will receive a Welcome module containing next steps which includes joining the private MMM-CMS student community on Mighty Networks to introduce yourself and meet other members of the community while you wait for the program to begin with module release and our kick-off live call.
If the enrollment period is not open yet, we encourage you to join the waitlist and we will notify you once doors officially open so you can secure your spot in the program. Spaces will be limited.
