ADHD Coach/Parenting Coach
We service families of students pre K – college/career non all areas of education with a specialty in helping parents navigate school systems to their children can receive necessary supports and services.
I work with ADHD adults in their professional, business, academic and personal lives to overcome typical ADHD challenges and achieve goals. My clients are looking for tools and strategies to improve organization and prioritize tasks. They want to improve relations at work and at home. They want to implement healthy life strategies to accomplish what they know they are capable of accomplishing, while managing their ADHD with greater understanding.
Having been a coach for 22+ years, I know my coaching clients want more balance in life, peace of mind, and they want to change that negative inner critic into an objective and supportive voice. I love helping people transform negative self-judgments into objective, even supportive, thoughts and from this place step into different behaviors and actions that create desired change.
At Lighted House Coaching, Emily Zilber helps clients shape lives in which they can thrive. Together, we’ll partner to identify and build skills, systems, and mindsets grounded in individual needs, strengths, interests, and values. As we work through topics & challenges that are important to your life, we’ll unpack shame-based perspectives and build greater self-compassion and self-trust.
Emily’s career as an educator and museum professional, coach training, and lived experience directly support her client work. She is particularly interested in working with artists, creative professionals, people who identify as women or non-binary, adults with mid or late-in-life diagnoses, parents & caregivers, educators, high-achieving professionals, & people struggling with conditions that often co-occur with ADHD and neurodivergence, including disordered eating, depression, and anxiety.
Services I offer include:
One-on-one ADHD coaching
One-on-one creative coaching and consulting
Mentoring and career coaching for neurodivergent creatives
Writing support and coaching for neurodivergent individuals
Workshops and consulting for arts and culture organizations looking to better support and engage with their neurodivergent staff & audiences
Broadly speaking, we provide individualized (and in some cases, group settings) executive functioning coaching and transition support across the lifespan, and also provide professional development to teachers/professors/support staff as well as employers).
We embarked on this journey in a (so far successful!) attempt to solve what we view as a problem effecting society at large (but certain pockets in particular):
The transition(s) to (and through) adulthood is for many people the most significant shift in expectations, required skills and self-advocacy up to that point in time—and from that moment on, the reality of that shift (that life is a constant stream of new (and potentially confusing/usually not well explained) experiences and challenges) becomes THE reality. SOCIETY AT LARGE DOESN’T DO ENOUGH TO PREPARE US FOR WHAT’S TO COME (and leaves particular segments of society in a significantly disadvantaged position as a result).
So, we felt that someone has to do something about it–and that’s what we do day in and day out!
