Here Is What Clients Have to Say
My clients come from a variety of backgrounds, including executives, entrepreneurs, professionals and academics. They credit my strategic coaching, creative problem solving, keen insight, uncanny ability to envision alternative paths and compassion for the progress they continue to make in their personal and professional life.
After only a few calls she seemed to have me figured out pretty well. She called me on empty promises, pushed me just enough never too much, and together we came up with tools that actually work and which I actually use. She has an uncanny ability to know how far she can push me without ticking me off. Thanks to that I never felt pressure to lie about or excuse what I had done or how I was doing.
After living with ADD for many years I started believing that I was lazy, stupid, and crazy. Marla was able to convince me that I was none of these by helping me solve small issues and get a track record of success. Once those things were accomplished, many of the pieces sort of fell in to place.

Why You Can Have Confidence In Me As Your ADD Coach
Below are four things about me that might surprise and delight you – while serving our work together.
I always wanted to live closer to my family. About 15 years ago, I gave up a tenured position teaching high school, sold my house and moved with my daughter to Boston. After arriving in Boston, without a job, I secured a position in the training department for a premier software company and subsequently worked at a leading university providing academic support to students.
I am never one to shy away from taking calculated risks, and have taken many in my life. Being the sole wage earner in my family, I never thought it was possible to achieve my lifelong dream of having my own business. I was wrong… I finally took the leap and launched my now flourishing coaching and training company, Cummins Coaching and Training.
My varied career and life path provides me with a breadth of experience that benefits my clients.
And, yes, I even wrote the book, ADD to Done: Beyond Stuck, Procrastination and Overwhelm. It is based on proven strategies I have used in my own life and with clients.
I just wanted to say thank you. I was recently diagnosed with ADHD (at 45 years old!) and your blog has been invaluable. I'm also a PhD student, so you can imagine I've done tons of research on ADHD: so many books and websites and videos!!! But your blog is the single most helpful resource I have. Thanks for being so generous with your knowledge and advice and a HUGE thank you for writing so clearly and accessibly.
