Peggy Wolman

Founder & CEO

 

With a Masters in Social Work, and over twenty-five years directing theatre, my professional background is rooted in helping people find their own voices. I know how to motivate and inspire confidence to help you achieve the kind of results in your personal search for love that you may have achieved in your professional life. People consider me a natural connector because of my history of bringing people together. Family, friends, colleagues and clients know that when I take on a project – just like a “production,” they can count on my enthusiasm, effort and investment in its success.

My intensive training with Rachel Greenwald, international best-selling author and matchmaker, helped to launch my career as a successful matchmaker and effective dating coach.

I consider myself blessed to have found a lasting, loving relationship with my husband, Richard, for over 50 years, and to have four married children. Mutual respect, commitment, and open communication are the cornerstones of our longstanding relationship. These are the values I bring to matchmaking and dating coaching.    Read the story about how Richard and I met…

Richard Wolman

PhD Psychologist

 

I have been a member of the faculty of Harvard Medical School for over 30 years. As an experienced clinician, author, researcher and teacher, I studied and helped countless individuals navigate their relationships through troubled waters.

So, my new ‘App’ with Peggy of coaching men and women in their search for love is an organic extension of my career. This work inspires me, because I have seen that even though many of our clients have endured extraordinarily difficult life experiences, hope survives and can generate new, loving connections.

In my role as President and Research Director of PsychoMatrix, an educational research organization, I also know the value of understanding the uniqueness of personality styles and individual spiritual experience. Thinking with Your Soul; Spiritual Intelligence and Why It Matters, focuses on my belief that each of us is spiritual in his or her own way, just as we each possess a specific personality style. Our clients find that the insights from their personality and spirituality profiles help them understand themselves better and create dialogue with the women and men whom they are dating.

Ellen Korsh

Photographer

 

Ellen Korsh has enjoyed photographing people and elements of nature since her teens. Her early commercial endeavors include more than 10 years casting commercials and voiceovers, at Boston’s Cameo Kids, Outcasting (Co-owner) and Boston Casting. More recently, she has spent time on the other side of the camera, as a print model for Boston-area advertisers, including the Boston Globe, Fidelity, Bose, Clark’s Shoes, and Keurig.

As a portrait photographer, Ellen strives to engage her subjects and put them at ease, “My experience as a casting director helped me develop an eye for portraits and empathy for often nervous subjects. Helping people to relax and enjoy the process is the key to capturing their beauty in the photograph.”

Ellen has studied photography at the New England School of Photography and the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Ellen received the Professional Photography Certificate from the Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts in 2012.

They often shape the future of any interaction. In the world of dating, an authentic image is crucial and can set the stage for communicating your best self to anyone you meet.

Consider having Peggy and Richard Wolman present a workshop or seminar for your educational institution, business, or community organization.

 

It has been a pleasure to work with Peggy and Richard. The seminars and workshops they presented to our clients were hugely successful. They were excellent presenters; our clients described them as knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do. They were thoughtful and confident in their presentation and our clients were able to learn valuable information on how to dive back into the dating world. One client said, “I loved Peggy, what a delight and what a wealth of information. I would definitely come to another program with her.” We plan to continue working with them more in the future.

Peggy and Richard describe the complex process of dating in engaging and revealing ways, causing delightful discomfort as we recognize our own missteps in the process of seeking a mate! Peggy helps make the steps clearer, the way less formidable, and our behavior less like that of clowns and more like the appealing beings we are at heart. She also offers great good sense to established couples looking to be more conscious of the ways they connect.
