Mary L. Flett, Ph.D.

“Confront the difficult while it is still easy.” Lao Tzu


I help people age better and age well. I can help you by listening without judgment, by providing a different way of looking a things, by connecting you with resources, and by making complex or confusing things easy to understand.


I have dedicated my professional career to working with aging adults in different venues including estate planning, psychology, and adult education. Each of these has given me different perspectives that help anticipate and adjust to the changes aging brings, and gives me a strong foundation to embrace those changes.


I have learned from, worked with, been mentored by and served aging adults since I was 14. I am now almost 70. As a life transitions coach, I continue to share my skills and experience with others in managing the challenges of aging in the 21st century.

Whole-Person Evaluations

Things change as we age. What is working well for you now could change in an instant or 10 or 20 years down the road. A whole-person evaluation gives you a “big picture” view of your functioning, including cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and situational factors. Find out what your strengths are and plan for where you might need support.
