Start out the New Year with a conversation about appearance and how we’ve come to confuse what we look like with our self-worth.  Make 2018 the year of breaking out of old thought patterns that dampen your spirits or hold you back from trying things. 

This 1-day workshop is an opportunity to engage with other women in an interactive environment to explore disentangling our value from our appearance.
We’ll look at the language we use, our own instinct to make judgements based on appearance, and the connections we make between our own physical appearances and how we experience life.

This will be a highly interactive day with journaling, conversations, and exercises designed to reconnect us with our intrinsic value.
Elaine Kinney and Donna Agajanian bonded over their common interest in fostering independence and self-worth in women. In a collaboration inspired by that bond they developed this workshop together.

Donna Agajanian, Life Coach, ACC, Facilitator

Donna’s work as a coach began with her own journey of discovery related to dieting and body image. After years of yo-yo dieting and body shame she flipped the script, rather than going on another diet she explored the self-doubt and self-loathing that was wrapped up in her self-image. That personal work has defined her coaching which she describes as a mission to change the way women relate to their bodies, food, and eating.  

Donna is a Certified Life Coach, a second career after over 25 years as an Award Winning Magazine Art Director in NYC at Smart Money, Brides, Prevention and more.

Elaine Kinney, M.A., Facilitator

Elaine has facilitated groups dealing with body related issues and has extensive therapeutic experience with individuals who struggle with their appearance.

She was a counselor for individuals, couples, families and groups, with a private practice for eighteen years in four countries (UAE, USA, Qatar and China). She has extensive experience leading groups, workshops and trainings on a variety of life issues. Currently she facilitates retreats in Europe and is studying Anthropology at the New School. Her multidisciplinary and multicultural approach facilitates the discovery of each individual’s uniqueness and potential. Prior to her current work, Elaine was a social worker in Canada, and owned two businesses.
