  • What Clients are Saying:

    "We are literally blown away by the experience our younger daughter had with you and we sincerely can’t thank you enough! We did not know about you with our oldest and it did not go well. There was stress, anger, tears, and heavy pushback trying to get everything done. Our younger daughter has walked through this process with you happily and has gained enormous confidence through your mentoring. There is absolutely no way it would have gone this well without you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

As you know sometimes I bucked you on your opinions but I am so glad that in the end we did everything you advised and you turned out to be right. I will always refer you and you are welcome to list me as a reference."

    "My kids adore you! My daughter and I talked yesterday after her session and she commented how much you’ve helped her…not only with the resume, vetting colleges, staying on task but also with the mental and emotional aspect of everything. She loves how you “are productive without making it stressful.” That’s a special and rare ability:) Feel so lucky to have you on our team. Thanks for taking such wonderful care of my kiddos!"
