Working Together

My true passion is in helping women of a ‘certain age’ find the joy, clarity and direction to move forward, to live life out loud, to be the doyenne of your life! We’ve come too far to take a back seat now. I do believe it’s time to refine how we live our lives, time to redefine 50’, and 60’s and 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and even 100’s!

Maybe you were passionate about art, you had a creative streak you want to re-explore. Perhaps you always held onto the idea of having your own business, moving to a new location, becoming a chef . . .
Now is the time to allow those dreams to become reality - there’s nothing to stop you. And if you need a little clarity, some support along the way - I’d love to work with you.

Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one’s time. For dreams are our reality in waiting. In dreams we plant the seeds of our future.

Below are a few areas for coaching and while there are many others, coaching is really a unique and personal journey. I’d love to set up a 20 minute complimentary call to explore how we can work together.

Please ring me at 845 729-2685 or email - I’d love to connect with you.

I have over 25 years of experience working with women in a variety of businesses and for the last 15 years as a portrait photographer working exclusively with women. Through photography I’ve had the pleasure of seeing women transform in front of the camera. It’s a very empowering experience for a woman to step in front of the camera and own her beauty and vulnerability - sometimes, truly seeing it for the first time.

Working with ‘women of a certain age’ as a Certified, Whole Person Professional Coach (WPPC) I believe in the same transformative, empowering experience. I have a collaborative style of coaching where together we’ll work on finding your clarity, focus and purpose.

You have come so far in life - it’s not at all time to take a back seat. Become the ‘doyenne’ of your life. Live your life out load!

A listing of some favorite authors, poets and teachers that I hope will provide you with inspiration.

Poet, author and internationally acclaimed speaker, David Whyte writes and speaks with depth and emotion often getting to the deep, dark places we might otherwise choose to ignore. I’ve heard him speak on several occasions and to say he is captivating barely touches the surface. His site is rich with his poetry, books and other offerings.

A Pulitzer Prize winning American Poet, Mary Oliver’s poetry speaks to the depth and breadth of what it is like to be human. Probably one of her most famous lines in which she asks so little and asks so much:

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”.

The linked site is a wonderful collection of her poetry and quotes.

American poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist, Maya Angelou is truly gifted. One of her most famous books, I Know Why The Caged Birds Sing is a memoir that speaks of her experiences of longing, bigotry and the beauty of life. The linked site is a tribute to her and her remarkable life and stories.

An American Tibetan Buddhist and ordained nun, Pema Chodron is a prolific author and teacher. I have followed her teachings for many years and have been honored on several occasions to attend her workshops. To me, one of the many gifts she brings is in making the teachings readily and easily understandable. She writes with a great deal of humor and heart. The linked site is filled with articles, videos and an events calendar along with a store where her many books and CDs are available.

A virtual treasure trove of articles, courses, events and videos spanning Buddhism, Mindfulness, Meditation, Health & Wellness, Yoga, Psychology & Personal Growth and so much more.


I look forward to connecting with you!
