Career Coach for People with ADHD

Benefits of Coaching:
  • Helps individuals experience fresh perspectives on personal challenges and opportunities,
  • Enhances thinking and decision making skills,
  • Enhances interpersonal effectiveness, and
  • Fosters achievement of personally relevant goals.

“I love helping people find their niche,” says Robin Roman Wright, BCC

Robin is a Board Certified Career and Executive Coach, and has particular expertise as a professional ADHD & Career Coach.  She has been at the Hallowell Center in Sudbury, Massachusetts for over ten years.    Her private practice is located in Andover, Massachusetts.

Robin’s prior experience includes coaching and training at various financial institutions.  She has been a speaker on ADHD and career topics at public events and for K-12 and college professional development programs.  She has also presented at several national and international events including: International Career Development Conference, Independent Educational Consultants Association Spring Conference and CHADD’s International Conference on ADHD (Children and Adults with ADHD).

Robin’s 7-step process helps teens and young adults with ADHD find fulfilling careers.  The first step is identifying strengths.  Young adults with ADHD need an opportunity to reflect on the problems that they have solved in their lives – the challenges they have overcome and the things that they are proud of,” explains Robin.

Subsequent steps include determining the client’s fields of fascination, environments in which the client thrives, and identifying where, in the world of work, the client’s skills and knowledges might be valued.  Nurturing talents and spending time immersed in things that interest you, helps you grow and become more of the person that you are meant to be.”

While Robin especially enjoys working with teens and young adults, she also works with adults of all ages who have ADHD.  Robin’s customized ADHD coaching is strengths-based, structured and supportive.  Depending on a client’s goals the coaching can focus on improving time management, organizational and decision-making skills as well as enhancing workplace performance.  For those in school, coaching can help clients develop more effective study habits.    

Co-author of the recently published, Transform Interests Into Jobs: A Career Practitioner’s Guide, Robin has now put into print many of the strategies she uses in her one-on-one coaching.  “We designed the book to provide career practitioners with a ready-to-use set of exercises and worksheets.  Career coaches, guidance counselors and career counselors can use this resource to help students conduct in-depth research and choose career goals and college majors that match their skills, interests and personalities.  By completing the exercises in the book, and, with the help of a skilled career practitioner, students will have a customized and solid set of criterion for choosing one career path over another.”

To inquire about Robin’s services, contact the Hallowell Center Boston MetroWest at 978-287-0810.

Client quote: 

This client had recently graduated from college and had many varied interests.  Her most recent job experience had been difficult.

“I had an overwhelming sense of not being able to focus at work and not being able to control my surrounding environment to suit my needs for focus and productivity.”

The coaching work that I did with Robin helped me to get the ball rolling – what was going to be right for me and why?  Also, I was able to obtain the information (from exercises which were part of the coaching) in order to cross certain career paths off my list.  So that in the future I am not sitting there wondering every day,” “What if I had gone into nursing or fashion merchandising?”  Would my life be better?  “Instead the exercises I engaged in with Robin helped me to decide to move in the direction of social media specialist.”

Taking Care of Yourself Is Not Being Selfish


Do you find yourself taking care of everyone else’s needs but yours?  It’s important to realize that if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of others.

Dr. Hallowell recommends that before immediately saying, “Yes” to every request, that you start saying, “Let me think about that and I’ll get back to you.”

For more tips on how to make time for yourself, listen to Dr. Hallowell’s mini-podcast #21, Let Me Get Back to You.
