WiseWoman Coaching: Founded in 1995


"WiseWoman Coaching means finding your wisdom, not mine!"

— Harriett Simon Salinger

Harriett Simon Salinger, founder of WiseWoman Coaching, began her highly successful Los Angeles-based coaching business in 1995, after working as a psychotherapist, clinical social worker, and teacher for more than 32 years.

Harriett maintains a wonderfully diverse business that includes coaching other coaches, as well as working with individuals in life transitions, entrepreneurs, and executives.

Harriett also serves as the Los Angeles representative of Pyramid Resource Group, Inc. in Cary, N.C., one of the nation's premier corporate coaching companies. She is also an affiliate of Marketingu.net.

Dynamic, Resourceful, Seasoned, Innovative

A dynamic public speaker and workshop facilitator, Harriett has led dozens of workshops and presentations throughout California, New York State and Connecticut, on a wide range of topics. She would be happy to address your group or organization as well.

On a personal note, Harriett is the mother of two daughters, Amy and Jane, mother-in-law to Tom and Tony, and is the proud grandmother of Max, Natasha and Oudum.
