Who says this is possible?
I'm Michelle Buzgon, a Professional Certified Coach who has worked with individuals and families for close to 15 years. I love partnering with parents to help their kids with ADHD and executive function challenges tap into their strengths and find the focus and motivation to succeed. And I'm one of a small number of coaches certified to deliver this popular and effective "Calm & Connected" curriculum, developed by ADHD parenting expert Cindy Goldrich, author of the book “8 Keys to Parenting Children With ADHD."
“This book is a godsend for parents raising kids who have the exciting but often challenging condition called ADHD. Written by a woman has helped thousands of parents through her enormously successful parenting workshops and classes, Cindy Goldrich’s book is an instant classic.”
—Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction
Do you or your child
sometimes feel ready
to just throw in the towel?
You're in the midst of another fight over homework or chores, and you're wondering -- again -- what went wrong. You give great advice that goes ignored. The rules you try to set go unheeded, and you can't seem to enforce them consistently, anyway. You find yourself frustrated by the unwise choices you watch your child make over and over and over. It can all be so exhausting.
There is another way.
When you learn to parent the child you have,
you will be able to help your child thrive.
Through the Calm & Connected sessions,
you will gain insight and tools that will help you
be the parent you want to be
AND the parent your child needs.

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING
"I have used many of the skills and there has been much improvement. I am parenting the child I have and teaching her the skills she needs and discussing expectations with her and compromising so that it works for both of us. And we both hold each other responsible for our part."
"I had hoped to learn one thing each class. I learned much more than that, as well as how and what to apply to my child."
"Michelle was awesome ... very knowledgeable and confident in the material! I enjoyed the workshop very much."
"I found the class helpful and informative, and the atmosphere was very friendly, encouraging, and warm. Michelle is a good teacher and seems to know the material very well. Thanks, Michelle! I would recommend this course, or working with Michelle generally, to other parents."
"Michelle's sense of humor was a real plus."
"There are so many excellent tips and strategies for success."
