We have expanded to the East Coast!
“Embracing performance as a catalyst for new
and more creative ways of living,
loving, healing and helping.”
The Life Performance Coaching Center is pleased to announce that we have expanded to the East Coast! Our founder and director, Joyce Dattner, is now living in New York City, where she has opened a coaching practice in Brooklyn Heights. Joyce will continue to see Bay Area clients via videoconferencing and quarterly visits.
We are excited, not only about our growth, but the growth of a movement of people across the U.S. and globally who are embracing performance as a catalyst for new and more creative ways of living, loving, healing and helping.
Joyce Dattner is a life performance coach and group leader based in NYC and San Francisco, where she directs the Life Performance Coaching Center. She is the former director of the All Stars Project of the San Francisco Bay Area, and now sits on its national Board of Directors. A senior trainer, Joyce has traveled to Taiwan, Denmark and the former Yugoslavia, to advance the East Side Institute’s performance-based approach to human development. In the early 1970s, she taught in the NYC public schools before joining Institute co-founder, Fred Newman, to develop social therapeutics.
Helen Abel, a social worker and therapist for more than 40 years, is now bringing her passion and skill for helping people transform painful ways of living their lives to her work as a life coach at the Life Performance Coaching Center. She has been influenced by her training over the last decade in the practice and theory of improvisational theatre, and by her ongoing study of the work of Fred Newman and other postmodern approaches to human development and community building. Helen has come to believe that she can most effectively help people develop by helping them learn how to use their capacity to create, perform and play. As a life coach, Helen helps her clients access these skills as she leads them in creatively developing more effective and impactful conversations with their friends, family and colleagues.
As a long time life coach, Randy Wilson is a skilled and effective leader of creating environments that are challenging and loving and that help clients become more creative choice makers. Having grown to meet many challenges in his life, including living with HIV for nearly 4 decades, he has come to believe that participating in building community focused on the development of all involved helps to reshape and redefine emotional and physical pain.
People respond in all sorts of ways to how they experience pain in their lives including using alcohol, drugs and/or sex to “medicate” themselves. Randy specializes in helping his clients recreate their relationship to that pain, both physical and emotional by helping them transform how they live their lives with others. Trained in the Life Performance Coaching Center’s performance based approach to development, Randy believes that people from all walks of life can come together and learn how to use our human capacity to perform to create new and effective ways of relating to ourselves, our friends and to the world.
Creating New Conversations
in Uncertain Times
with Joyce Dattner
and the Life Performance Coaching Community
What kind of conversations must we create if “We the People” are to come together in new ways at a moment when many feel as much fear as hope for our democracy, our humanity and our future? Join Joyce Dattner and the Life Performance Coaching Center community in an exploration of what it means to go beyond our old ways of speaking and seeing and create new conversational possibilities for ourselves, our communities, our country and our world.

Let’s Develop and Create Our Lives!
Especially When The Going Gets Tough!
with Helen Abel
How do we create our lives (in good times and bad) with conflict, disagreement, despair, fear, anger and more?
How do we have conversations with people whose personal histories and points of view are very different from ours?
In this workshop, Helen Abel will work with participants to create an ensemble through improvisation and therapeutic dialogue. Please join us in performing, playing and improvising our way to new emotional places and more creative conversations.
Helen Abel, MSW, is a social therapist, life performance coach and workshop leader who has been helping people perform their way to growth and development for the last 30 years.
