“I worked with PTS Coaching during a difficult time in my son’s school career and quickly realized 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.”
Tracy M. (Mother of 14 yr. old boy)
“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.”
Stacey G. (Mother of 8 yr. old girl)
“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. (Teacher)
“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 of success.”
Emily (Mother of 7 yr. old boy)
“I have taken Cindy’s 6 week parenting course and attend 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 seem 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.”
Marcia H. (Mother of 12 yr. old girl)
“Cindy has made the very difficult task of parenting a child with ADHD so much more manageable for me. The mantras she shares have been very helpful in enabling me to deal with the anger and “why me” feelings that often accompany having a child with ADHD. She has truly helped me “Parent the child I have” (to use a quote that Cindy often does). I feel better knowing Cindy is there when I need her.”
Joan R. (mother of 7 yr. old girl)
“I am a clinical psychologist and I have worked with many psychologists, social workers and therapists. I took Cindy’s 7-week course on parenting children with ADHD, and was very impressed. Cindy covers a broad range of material, and offers many practical techniques and tools for parents dealing with challenging children. But most importantly, Cindy has a gift for making parents feel understood. She helps parents look at their weaknesses without making them feel badly about their parenting. She provides a great sense of hope for parents who are feeling despairing and guilty. I so valued her coaching that my daughter and I now work with her privately on an ongoing basis. Working with Cindy has been invaluable to us and our relationship.
I highly recommend Cindy’s class and her coaching to parents and professionals working with people with ADHD.”
Eve L. (mother of 11 yr. old girl)
“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!”
Susan W. (mother of 14 yr. old boy)
“Not until I met Marj did I think my daughter could make it two weeks in college. Now I know she’ll flourish, become the next great animator and support me in my old age! She LOVES Marj, feels comfortable with her and is now relieved of the fear she has been feeling.
You’re the best, you’re like us, we relate to you and when you said to my daughter “I wish I met you in the sixth grade”, I almost cried! Again, I can’t thank you enough!”
(Howard G., Father of a College Freshman)
“I just want to tell you how much we are grateful to you Marj. You have changed our son’s live in just the few meetings you have had with him. He is more confident about school, he is more organized and on top of his classes, which gives him so much hope and enthusiasm for his future. I see less anxiety in him as well, and I think it is because he is making positive improvements.”
(Linda B., Mother of College Student)
I enjoyed your presentation. You were engergetic, 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)
