Testimonials From Parents And Professionals
Cindy is a brilliant teacher and coach. I recently completed her PTS Coaching and feel extremely knowledgeable and confident to present this very informative and user- friendly program in my community. Cindy’s constant support and feedback allow me to provide parents with concrete strategies, tools, and knowledge that can change chaos into calm. She is “real and realistic,” I am so incredibly grateful to her.”

My son and I are so much more respectful to one another. We are not screaming at each other, but rather connecting and interacting in a calm manner. We, as a family have learned so much! The time management skills have changed our homework hours and created an environment of love and support, not a battlefield! Thank you Cindy!
Cindy’s Calm and Connected parenting workshop is incredible. It helped improve my relationship with my son with ADHD and our overall family dynamics. I go back to the materials often!
I loved your workshop yesterday!! I immediately started re-reading your handouts and feel very inspired. I can’t wait to implement many of the strategies, especially showing how the neurons connect and what is happening inside their brains. I also love the two homework handouts.
Lisa, Elementary Teacher
Cindy helped me realize the importance of working through my own unexpressed emotions. Cindy helped me see this and gave me valuable tools to help the healing process. I am so very grateful for her time and guidance and happy to report that both my son and myself are much better because of it.
Thank you for helping me to appreciate my family. I left work early to see the kids. I walked in the door (washed my hands, changed, and mouth washed) and just hugged them both. Both girls said, “You’re home already?!” and added that they missed me. The dynamic at our house has changed completely. Bonus: they both told me, after the hugging and laughing, that they finished their work. I’m definitely happy about that, but thrilled to know I got to tell them “I love you” with a big smile before they could give me that information.
You have changed my life. I’m forever grateful. Stay safe! Sincerely, Erin
I have taken Cindy’s 6-week parenting course and attended her parent support group. They both are terrific and blend just the right amount of education, insight, support, and sharing. Cindy is a highly competent and expert coach who is able to make what sometimes seems like the impossible, possible, and even achievable. She is also a warm and caring coach who draws on her wealth and breadth of experience to help parents better understand and effectively parent their children.
I attended one of your trainings earlier this year and loved it!!!! I work as an Educational Technician at a grade 2-5 school and work with many children with ADHD. I was happy to share some of the strategies that I learned from one of your trainings and they proved to be terrific strategies with the students.
Amy H., Educator
I highly recommend working with Cindy. She brings, calm, clarity, and wisdom to your family when you need it most. She understands the challenges you encounter on a daily basis and helps you over the hurdles. Cindy provides her wisest insights and still respects your position and supports you unwaveringly. Most importantly, she helps you see your child in a new light so that you can be your child’s biggest advocate. I am forever grateful for all that Cindy has taught me and my family.
You have given me renewed joy with my daughter. Thank you so much!
I knew I needed better communication skills to be able to cope with the new phase of our relationship. …I think it was one the smartest thing I ever did in my life. I feel it is going to bring me closer to my son and understand what he was trying to tell me, for a very simple reason, I now know how to communicate with a calm and collaborative problem-solving attitude instead of being judgmental, short-tempered parent. I love my son dearly. If this will make me help him and not enable him, I will do it again and again and again. For me, that was the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you Cindy.
Amal A. (Parent and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)
I have wanted to reach out to you for some time to say thank you for your Calm and Connected program for parents. I remember sitting there and listening to the different families tell their stories and while some things were familiar, other information was totally foreign to me. I remember saying to myself “Thank God, we’re not going through that.” Well, sure enough, many times since I have now corrected and said “thank God I took the course and I understand because of those people I met.” It was excellent preparation for what was to come on this ever-evolving journey.
The other point I wanted to acknowledge in regard to the program is that the course brought things to my attention and I have been diagnosed with ADHD. It was a bit of a process, but it was confirmed this winter. I wouldn’t have realized had it not been through that workshop.
So, I just wanted you to know how tremendously helpful your program has been and it truly was a godsend as I literally stumbled upon it.
Cindy Goldrich is a phenomenal instructor and made it simple to stay engaged. As a result, I earned an APCA license to teach Calm and Connected: Parenting Children and Teens with Executive.
Cindy’s coaching programs are fantastic. She teaches you in a way in which you feel encouraged and empowered to try new methods and approaches to supporting your child(ren) with ADHD.
I had the good fortune to attend one of your sessions at the NWAIS conference in Seattle and want to thank you – I learned a great deal in a very brief amount of time! In terms of defining what the executive functions are, I have never seen a more clear and easily understandable definition and list of the distinct areas as the one you presented last week. Thank you.
Joan T., Educator
It was so wonderful to speak with you a few weeks ago – thank you so much for your time and expert insights. I have told tons of people about your book (8 Keys to Parenting Children with ADHD), which my husband, parents, and I are all reading! As a parenting writer (and as a parent), I’ve read so many books on subjects like this and I have to say, yours is exceptionally helpful. What I admire most about it, is that it keeps the big picture always in mind, so you don’t get too bogged down in the details (but at the same time, it is full of concrete specific strategies). I’ve learned so much from it, and I’m not a newcomer to this disorder, so thank you! I’ll continue to recommend it to parents, and I hope that featuring it in my book, will give the title that much more exposure.
Nicole C. Kear, Author
Cindy, I really appreciated the opportunity to attend this session. As I mentioned to you via a separate email conversation I learned more about myself as a result of taking this course and was able to identify myself as an individual that also has ADHD. It was very liberating, and am working on developing additional supports for myself that would help hold me accountable and become more successful both in my career and in my personal life.
Salvador L. (ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)
What a great curriculum. Parents had positive feedback with their kids already!! I really like how it flowed
So glad I can offer support and education to parents. Thank you for putting this together.
Roberta Havens, MA, Ed., ADHD & Executive Function Parent Coach
I really enjoyed this training! I learned so much from you and have been reflecting on everything I have learned from the moment the course began. You are an excellent teacher and obviously a gifted parent coach. I have derived so many benefits from this training including a stronger ability to stay calm, listen to others, appreciate my strengths as a coach as well as a clinician…
Lauren A. (ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)
I must say, taking this course is one of the best decisions I have made to increase my knowledge and improve my ability to provide holistic support to families. Thanks!
Liliana Diaz, CPA, ADHD & Executive Function Parent Coach
The 1st meeting I had with Cindy I just vented and she listened. She was compassionate and knowledgeable and helped me realize I could help my son. After Cindy visited my son’s school and spoke with his teacher I knew she was an awesome asset to my son’s education. The strategies she suggested to his teacher worked within a week and he is on a path to success.
Thanks for the great presentation today. As a school counselor, I wanted to hit the record button and press play for my parents/teachers.

Thank you so much for your training. I really took your advice at the session to heart and I’ve made a shift in my position from that of a parent who believes her child’s teachers don’t “get it,” to that of a parent who realizes that his teachers probably mean well but likely do not have the depth of training needed to really understand the needs of these diverse learners. As a counselor, and a parent of a child with ADHD and dyslexia, I realize that my personal experience and training have provided me with insights and tools that I can share with his teachers so they might be able to better help him and other students. I’m also reaching out to the principal and the counseling and case management team to see if there are ways that I can help educate teachers and other parents. I have to tread lightly–I don’t want to step on toes–but I genuinely feel that I can help make a difference in the lives of students at our school.
I have thoroughly enjoyed both classes and learned so much. I am excited about providing these services in my community and encourage other professionals to attend Cindy’s training.
Cindy, If it weren’t for your Calm and Connected class I would not have had the tools to recognize the symptoms. I’m happy to report he is now in 8th grade, has a 504, and is feeling much better about his achievements.
Cindy is a knowledgeable and competent teacher. This course has provided me with so many tools as a clinician that have been instrumental in my practice with parents of children with ADHD/EF challenges. This is a great investment for any clinician or coach that works with parents or neurodivergent children.
Christina Silvera, Clinical Psychologist, ADHD & Executive Function Parent Coach
I enjoyed your presentation. You were energetic, and informative, and made the learning accessible by using lots of real-life examples. I walked away with greater insight, strategies, and tools I will use in my classroom. Thank you!
Ms. B., 6th grade teacher
I feel so much less stress, as a parent. I knew I probably needed to be more consistent, set limits, and create structure, but now I have the tools and confidence to really make the changes for me and for my child.
Cindy’s Parent Coach training program is excellent. She is relatable and knowledgeable about ADHD and parenting. Cindy’s workshops helped me launch my coaching business with workshops that provide valuable and easy to administer tools for both acquiring clients and working with clients. I am also taking advantage of Cindy’s ongoing education to coaches to help me grow my practice and increase my knowledge. I highly recommend this program for coaches just starting out or coaches wanting to expand their practices!
