When you hire me, you get me, I never farm out any aspect of your application process to other people. I work with you one-on-one. I am there as often as you need my guidance.

Wondering how to help your teen show his or her best self?

Wondering how to help your daughter get from where she is now to where she wants to go?

Wondering how to help your son come into his own and discover yet-to-be-realized dreams?

College Planning, Essays and Coaching — I Bridge the Gap

When it comes to applying to college, your child may know exactly what he or she wants—or not a clue. "I don't know" or "There's only one school for me" may be familiar tunes.

Applying to college is not what it once was. But neither does it have to be the overwhelming process many parents and students perceive it to be.

Set aside your worries. The much-feared battle of wills between parent and teen does not have to be part of the process. Nor do slick packaging or puffery on applications. As a trained, credentialed and experienced educational consultant, I help you and your student navigate each step of planning his or her academic future. I serve as the bridge between parents and students as well as between families and the college admission offices.

“Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision.  
The one thing you have that nobody else has is you.
So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.”
-Neil Gaiman
