College Admissions Advising

I believe that students can get a high-quality education almost anywhere. The most important factors to consider when selecting a college are size, location, vibe, selectivity, and cost. I help families find schools where their students can learn, grow, and thrive. The college admissions process is not inherently stressful or competitive:  If you get suitable advice and keep your personal goals in mind, the process can be informative and fun. If my approach sounds right for you, please contact me. I am available for one-time appointments or multiple sessions.

Individualized Academic Counseling for Current College Students

I help students optimize their college experience: select the right major, balance course schedules, find undergraduate research projects, identify student leadership opportunities, and prepare for graduate school. I also specialize in helping students overcome personal and academic challenges such as changing majors, transferring colleges, dropping or repeating courses, combating procrastination, or discussing roommate problems. If you are interested in my advising for current college students, please contact me. I am available for one-time appointments or multiple sessions.
