College Counseling and
College Application Services
At every step of the way, my goal is to put the student at the center of the conversation, supporting them as they take charge of their research and transition to college. Everyone’s strengths, needs, priorities and process are different, and my support will be personalized in response to those self-assessments–- while ensuring timely progress.
Typically, I work with students primarily over the 11th and 12th grade academic years as a two-year package. We can begin a consulting conversation in 9th or 10th grade, which might include advising on course choice, activities, summers, standardized test strategy, and general advice on making the most of high school, to set up students to be informed decision makers when we turn to the explicit conversation about college options. I can offer flexible support for your student's needs and stage of the process, including the option for hourly packages to support targeted phases of the process, like list-building and application writing.
The process of searching and applying to colleges can feel like an overwhelming undertaking. I can help break it down into manageable pieces for everyone involved. The categories below cover some of the essentials of my guidance.
I love getting to know the interests, quirks, talents, questions and hopes of teenagers. The conversation around college should celebrate those things, not airbrush, suppress or disguise them.
My work has always been informed by respect for adolescent development and student wellness.
My perspective is equally informed by ongoing engagement with the college admission landscape, colleagues within the profession, the latest global trends, and developments in specific institutions.
