encouragement The college admissions process need not be overwhelming.  With individualized support and guidance it can be manageable, and even an exciting journey.  My purpose is to streamline this process, to make it more directed, to give realistic feedback, and to encourage you to identify and pursue your own college dreams.

a plan  The college planning process involves searching yourself for your essence. It also requires pinpointing the particular colleges whose culture, resources and mission fit you best in the ways you value most. Then you must persuasively present who you are and what you have to offer those institutions. I can assist you in designing a portrait of yourself to capture your growing identity--your gifts and influences, strong-suits and passions, values and aspirations--the unique package that is you--all conveyed with savvy, but in your natural voice.
self-discovery I view college admissions as a task that lies at the core of a self-discovery process for the student and a transition for the family. Let me guide you and your family through any or all steps along the way. ​​
