As a dynamic group facilitator and speaker for over 25 years, Elaine leads online programs, workshops and retreats. She also works with private clients. Elaine holds a graduate degree with specializations in Transformative Learning and Integrative Health. She wrote her thesis, ‘Fostering Resilience: Conscious Engagement with Life As It Is’ as academic groundwork for The MindPeace Method®, a proprietary program for healing after traumatic loss.
Shortly after Elaine tragically lost her teenage son Rand by suicide in 2004, she met Iris Bolton, author of My Son, My Son and a key leader in suicide prevention and aftercare for over 40 years. They became close friends and co-presented at national conferences. In 2016 Iris invited Elaine to create an online companion course to her latest book, Voices of Healing and Hope.
This online interactive course, Pathway to Peace of Mind, is available for women who have lost a child or partner by suicide. Also, in response to the US opioid crisis, Pathway to Peace of Mind: Healing Tools for Mothers After Loss by Overdose is available. Additional online courses and in-person retreats are offered.
Elaine founded a nonprofit, MindPeace Miracles, to provide tool-based experiential programs for those in need of financial assistance. The mission is to support women and their families facing significant loss, to go beyond surviving to thriving, by developing clarity, meaning, purpose, joy and gratitude for life once again.
She has been a certified Trainer for the More To Life Program for over 20 years, leading dynamic workshops and retreats internationally. Elaine is also a licensee of More To Life tools which form a core of The MindPeace Method®. Further, this method draws from the fields of leadership development, mindfulness, transpersonal psychology, mind/body medicine, neuroscience, energy psychology, indigenous healing, spirituality, and a broad range of the arts.
Originally educated in Art and Design, Elaine opened a women’s wear manufacturing company in Manhattan in the late 1970’s, selling to major department stores and boutiques across the country. As an award-winning artist, she was also commissioned to create large-scale sculptures for public and corporate spaces. It was the sudden loss of her mother in 1983 that led Elaine to begin asking the deeper questions about life, and eventually to focus on the fundamental human need for healing and growth.
Elaine is committed to the deeper dive, to receiving what Life is teaching us through the difficult, exhilarating, painful, and most beautiful moments of our lives. She creates a safe, interactive learning environment filled with compassion and encouragement. In community with other women, participants gain a toolbox of bold insights and practices to become more real, more loving and more at peace in their own skin.
She has been married to Tom, the love of her life, for 31 years and they have a son in college. She is a confessed bookaholic, loves taking long walks and can hardly wait for the next travel adventure.
