In my coaching with adults with ADD, I provide a supportive, practical, concrete process in which I work with my clients to identify and pursue their goals. The primary purpose of the ADD coaching is to develop the structures necessary for the client to function effectively and to teach practical approaches to the challenges of daily life.
In this process, I provide encouragement, recommendations, feedback and practical techniques such as reminders, questions and calendar monitoring. Together we develop strategies to address issues of time management, eliminating clutter, and becoming more effective in their personal and professional life.
There are many reasons that people want to change careers. They are burnt out, stressed, bored, feel trapped or wondering “is this all there is?” If this is you, there is hope.
I have spent 16 years helping clients find careers and jobs that excite them, provide meaning and fulfillment and give them balance in their lives. I have developed a 7-step process called “Discover Your Dream Career” which leads my clients to finding what their next ideal career is.
It took me 40 years, 7 career changes and 14 jobs to create the life that fits me perfectly today, and I now help others do the same so they don’t have to wait so long.

Ted’s approach is: No nonsense. Empowering. Safe. Practical. Fun! Coaching is the ideal support. It is like having an ideal parent, encouraging athletic coach, skilled therapist, brainstorming resource, and good friend all wrapped in one. It keeps you focused on your dreams and goals. Now that I’ve done it – and gotten so much out of it, whenever I get off track and feel I’m lost in my professional or personal life, I call my coach – and through the coaching process I am back on track in a short amount of time – and usually in a place that far exceeded my expectations of what was possible.C.B., Recruiter, Cambridge, MA
I'm a big believer in coaching IF you are able to find a good one. I worked with Ted on work/life balance issues - and our coaching relationship continued for 2 years. His approach, guidance, questions and perspective were eye-opening and extremely helpful. He moved me from a work-aholic to a happier more balanced person - bridging work and personal life easily and comfortably. He was the best!Lisa Dennis, President, Knowledgence Associates, Cambridge, MA
If you’re looking at your career and life, I can not say enough about the impact of working with Ted to refine, create, imagine and strategize changes and new directions. He has had a significant impact on my life and on my career – and the changes have been long-lasting. He has both a great ear and a great brain – hears what I haven’t said and helps me to connect to what’s important. He is personable, has high integrity and gets great results. If you’ve ever considered using a coach, this is the man.
I've been working with Ted, a very personable, easy-to-talk with coach during this challenging recessionary employment period. Ted has helped me identify what is important to me, helped me execute deliverables each week to move me closer to my goal, and has been a great resource for network information. He's been especially helpful holding me accountable to what I've committed to completing each week and talks through strategies if I run into problems. I am grateful for Ted's coaching and recommend him to anyone looking to fulfill their potential.Helane Blinn, Marketing Communications & Social Media Manager. Professional Organizer
What can I possibly say about the life transforming experience of working with a coach as talented as Ted? He helped me to both uncover and give voice to the values that drive my decisions, helped me notice when I was (and wasn't!) honoring those values, and patiently nudged me back on track when I veered from my stated intentions. My work with Ted truly helped to change the path of my life!Matt Aspin, Training & Development Manager, ECU|Centerpoint, Seattle, WA
Ted was excellent at helping me find a clear direction professionally. The methodology he uses to guide clients is very valuable and something I still refer to today. I highly recommend Ted.Lisa Gilberti, Director of Sales, Entrepreneur, Mendon, MA
Working with Ted has given my life the jumpstart it sorely needed. I started out thinking I just needed to find a job to pay my expenses, but in the course of working with Ted, I realized that my life dream of being a working artist had been ignored for quite a few years. We’ve explored ways to make that happen and get my life back on track toward the kind of life I want to be living. In the meantime, Ted has been extraordinarily helpful with the practical issues of navigating the world of job interviews and negotiations. Ted is very generous, supportive, and easy to talk with. I have more work yet to do, but with Ted’s guidance I have no doubt that I will find my path...I am already on my way.Naomi R., Artist, Web Designer and Educator
Coaching has allowed me to clarify my values and goals, but most importantly has allowed me to align my actions towards these values and goals. This has led to a more fulfilling life in that my actions are congruent with my life purpose. Coach Ted has the unique ability to gently guide his clients away from the trivialities in life towards the bigger picture. With the Big Picture in mind, strategies, actions and challenges move you in a productive and rewarding direction. Coaching facilitates working “on” your life and not “in” your life. The concept of “Creating Your Future” through a facilitated, friendly and professional relationship produces results for anyone willing to challenge and maximize their unique potential in pursuit of their believed destiny.Tom Fleming, Executive Director, Business Network International, Tampa, FL
Ted is very attentive, reliable and efficient. He got me to be clear when I was vague and gave me useful exercises to do. He kept after me to do the tasks I agreed to do which helped keep me on track. He is very upbeat and supportive and gave me lots of encouragement and positive feedback.Terri Goldberg, Environmental Association Manager, NEWMOA/IMERC, Boston, MA
What a pleasure in today’s rushed world to have one-half hour each week devoted to my life, my goals, my desires and wishes and, sometimes, my disappointments. Coaching with Ted has opened my eyes to all aspects of my life and is helping me create the balance I need.JoAnn Buck, Broker/Associate, Coldwell Banker Real Estate, Sarasota, FL
The visualization work Ted has supported me with has helped me focus on the impact I want to make on the world and how it will feel for me to make that impact. It's increased my motivation to get through some of the tasks that I previously found difficult to do. Ted's easy manner puts me at ease to tell my truth, even when it means putting down the mask that hides the fears and anxieties of facing challenges. Coaching is a place to focus on what's holding you back from being fully present, from creating the life you want and helping mold the world into a positive place for us and generations to come.Mary Radu, MS, MSW, Owner, Pathmaker Coaching/Roadmap to Meaningful Midlife, St. Helena, CA
Ted has all the right questions to force reflection upon actions or lack thereof. He asks for commitments to action each week and keeps a record for follow-up. Ted doesn’t miss much. In my mind, he embodies the Four C’s: A coach with commitment, concern and concentration.John Epeneter, CPA/PFS and Certified Financial Planner, Maynard, MA
