Hello! I am Malka Marcela. Welcome to my website; I am glad you’re here! Let me tell you a little about my story. Before becoming a Life and ADHD Coach, I served as the conductor of the Tufts University Symphony Orchestra. We performed in over 15 countries and offered workshops to thousands of children nationally and internationally. However, I felt stressed and overwhelmed by the professional demands of a Musical Director, and my whole family was in chaos. I was yearning to stop yelling at home and find the patience to be present and calm with my loved ones. Luckily, I attended a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction workshop, and it changed my life.

 

I found a quiet place inside of me.  A space that was there all the time and needed to be rediscovered that keeps growing and deepening every day. It felt like a miracle. And it was the beginning of learning and discovery.

 

I learned that it takes courage and flexibility to pursue the things that fulfill you. And the path may be different than what you thought and at a price that is worth it in the long run. And I know your challenges have given you the resilience and resourcefulness you need to meet and exceed your goals and dreams. I want to use my life lessons to support you with coaching.

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space.  In that space is our power to choose our response.  In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

Viktor Frankl

In addition, I trained in Internal Family Systems with its founder, Richard Schwartz, in Positive Psychology Coaching at the Wholebeing Institute because when you relax, it frees up energy and motivation for finding your purpose and improving your work and life situation. And I help clients in individual sessions to discover where they want to go and to set appropriate goals to get there.
