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!

Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M., ADHD-CCSP

PTS Coaching Founder
Parent Coach, Teacher Consultant, Author 

Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M., ADHD-CCSP, is a Mental Health Counselor, Certified ADHD Coach, Teacher Consultant, and Parenting Specialist based in Boulder, CO. Cindy is an active writer, speaker, online ADHD coach, and contributor to the field of ADHD. She teaches her Calm and Connected method to parents, teachers, and related services professionals for the education, treatment, and support of children with ADHD and Executive Function Deficits across the world. She is a published author of 2 books on Parenting and ADHD. Her 8 Keys to Parenting Children with ADHD has been translated into multiple languages. Cindy also provides ADHD coach training to others so they can become Professional Parent Coaches through her ADHD Parent Coach Academy.


"When I began coaching teens and college students who have ADHD, I quickly discovered that it is often the parents who need the support. I have met so many wonderful, caring parents who are at a loss as to why they, and their children, struggle so much. The reality is that love and logic are not sufficient when you are dealing with inconsistencies, challenges, and frustrations in raising your child who has ADHD. Once the diagnosis is made, the most important treatment is parent education and training – you often need a Black Belt in parenting!

In working with parents, my philosophy is, “Parent the child you have.” Not the one you thought you would have or that others tell you that you would have if you just parented THEIR way. I help parents and professionals nurture children through tolerance, empathy, and support, with a healthy balance of guidance, structure, and discipline. As I say to parents: “Don’t bend the Universe – too much.” Prepare them for the real world, but know when to give them that extra chance they may need."



Cindy received her Master’s in Counseling Psychology from Columbia University, Teachers College.  She received her designation as a Certified Clinical Service Provider for ADHD from PESI and ADHD Coach Certification from the Institute for the Advancement of ADHD Coaching. She has trained with Dr. Edward Hallowell and Dr. Ross Greene.

As a certified ADHD Coach and ADHD parent training specialist, Cindy will help you understand the full impact of ADHD and provide you with the tools and strategies to manage it!

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.
