Additional experience includes designing and leading programs on  emotional intelligence, leadership development, reflective mentoring, team building, visual problem solving, fierce communication, career development, life planning, strategic learning, coaching skills for leaders, performance management and the personal growth workshop, Women Living for Today and Tomorrow, featured in The New York Times.

I bring an eclectic background to my practice. My skills in getting to the heart of issues and working with clients to craft clear plans grew out of years of coaching, teaching (pre-school through grad school) and training (trainers and line staff through executive managers). This experience set allows me to see the common themes in each client’s experience and use those to develop individualized strategies.

I have a doctorate in Adult Learning and Leadership from Teachers College, Columbia University and masters degrees in counseling and educational psychology from New York University I am an IAC Master Masteries Coach, Past President of the IAC Board of Governors, a member of the steering committee for the Association of Transformational Leaders – Northeast and a member of the board of the American Business Women’s Association, NYC.

I am an International Association for Coaching Certified Coach. My Women Living for Today and Tomorrow workshops were featured in The New York Times. I am also the author of  Fifty Over Fifty: Wise and Wild Women Creating Wonderful Lives (And You Can Too!), The Life Design Blueprint Playbook, and How to Zap Your Obstacles to Create Your Success.

I love traveling, still exploring New York, enjoying movies and theater, discovering new restaurants, cooking for friends, meeting with my Transitions Network group, or spending time with friends and family, especially my handsome and talented Godson. And even when I’m doing all these other things, I love taking a pause to smile at the success of my clients, knowing that they too are living their ideal life.
