About

Transforming Menopause, Inc. was formed by Phyllis Rickel-Wong and her associates to provide new knowledge and a cutting-edge model for health and well-being before, during, and after menopause.

The goal of Transforming Menopause is to provide a “paradigm shift” to change how women experience menopause. Instead of being resigned to “managing” “coping” or “adjusting” to menopause, Ms. Rickel-Wong has extended a new vision of health and well-being during this major time in a woman’s life.

Transforming Menopause is dedicated to seeking out the most current research, programs, and practices on issues relating to menopause. We then present current findings to others in a personalized and systematic manner to facilitate and guide change and transformation. We serve individuals, health and mental health agencies, educational organizations, business, and advocacy groups. Ms. Rickel-Wong specializes in developing actionable plans to use these research findings for personal choice and organizational directions. Associates within our organization have provided consultations and survey work for many Fortune 500 companies. The topics that our consultants at Transforming Menopause address include:
