Why Devora Malka Goldstein, MSEd chose to be in the helping profession
The reason behind my decision to enter the helping profession can be traced back to my background as a dedicated classroom teacher. As someone who has spent years nurturing the educational journeys of diverse learners, I recognized the immense value of providing support to those who needed it most.
With a firm foundation in teaching, I ventured into the field of life coaching, focusing on ADHD. This choice allowed me to extend my reach beyond the classroom and make a significant impact on the lives of individuals facing challenges related to attention and executive functions. The heart of my practice lies in aiding neurodiverse students and adults, a majority of whom grapple with ADHD and its associated hurdles.
What drives me is the genuine pleasure I derive from witnessing the progress and growth of my clients. It's the small steps and daily victories that lead to the development of life-enhancing skills. Being a part of this transformative journey is what motivates me and keeps me engaged in my work.
Devora Malka Goldstein, MSEd's approach
In my coaching practice, I hold a fundamental belief in the inherent creativity, resourcefulness, and wholeness of each of my clients, as well as their families. I am unwavering in my conviction that they possess the capabilities needed to flourish.
My approach is built on a partnership with my clients and, when appropriate, their families, to work collaboratively towards achieving their unique objectives. These goals can encompass a wide range, be it academic, social, or personal, covering areas such as life skills, social skills, or any other facet they aim to enhance.
Drawing upon my deep understanding of ADHD and Executive Functioning, I leverage an extensive toolkit of resources to facilitate my clients' comprehension of these challenges and empower them to chart the most suitable path forward within their specific circumstances. My ultimate aim is to guide them in applying these newfound skills not only to address their ADHD/EF-related concerns but also to extend their positive impact on various aspects of their lives.
What you can expect from sessions with Devora Malka Goldstein, MSEd
Our coaching journey commences with a complimentary Prescreen Session, a chance for you to get acquainted with your coach, delve into the specifics of your situation, and gain a clearer understanding of how the coaching process operates.

In this session, you'll have the opportunity to share your history, preferences, and aspirations for the initial few months of our coaching journey.
Subsequently, we usually engage in weekly coaching sessions. In these regular meetings, you can anticipate a structured approach. We begin by reviewing your progress since our last meeting. Then, we collaboratively set a goal for the current session. Together, we identify action steps to help you achieve that goal, and we can also establish any desired accountability support.
It's worth noting that each session can either build upon the foundation of previous sessions or address independent goals, depending on your evolving needs and priorities. Over time, our sessions will not only enhance your knowledge but also build your skills, ultimately equipping you with the tools for greater independence and accomplishment.
