About PTS Coaching

Meet Our Team of ADHD Coaches & Staff

PTS Coaching, LLC, founded by Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M., ADHD-CCSP, provides education and support for Parents, Educators and Mental Health Professionals dealing with ADHD and Executive Function Challenges. Cindy has put together a team of ADHD coaches to help you and your family succeed with these challenges.

Our mission is that every child who thinks and learns differently is understood, respected for who they are, and encouraged that they can learn and succeed along their chosen pathway. 

Our goal is that every parent of a “complex" child receives the understanding and support they need to be a calm, empathetic, informed, and supportive advocate for their child, and that every educator has the education, tools, and strategies necessary to help these children succeed and not feel like square pegs in round holes at school.

Let's bring strength and confidence to people who learn, think, and perform outside conventional norms so that every person can follow their own Pathway to Success!

Executive Function/ADHD Coach

Berks County, Pennsylvania

Helen Bispels, M. Ed., ACC, helps students--middle school through college--with ADHD, learning differences, or executive function challenges develop skills and strategies to become capable and confident. As a former educator for over 15 years, she understands the challenges these students face in school. As a parent of five, she has experienced the roller-coaster ride of raising children with ADHD. Now as a coach, she partners with families to find what works for their children to do their best.

Helen-Kornbulm sq

Helen Kornblum, MA

Executive Function/ADHD Coach
12 Years -  Adults

Alachua County, Florida

Helen is a trained life coach who specializes in working with teens and young adults who have attention deficit disorders. She helps them create coping strategies by using their strengths, which enables them to thrive in a linear world. Building teens by recognizing their accomplishments and potential is easier than repairing demoralized adults. Because coaching is about change, Helen encourages teens to pick the changes they want to make, treating every effort as an experiment that deserves a thoughtful review. Feedback from clients about what worked or what didn’t work eliminates harsh judgments. Feedback also makes the coaching relationship a safe refuge for teens who seek extra support while developing their independence.
