Parent Comments

"You are a skilled professional, but your warmth and empathy and balanced, patient coaching make you invaluable. Thanks • for focusing on our daughter (not us) • for tailoring your approach to her needs • for keeping us informed"

"We greatly appreciate your knowledge & advice & keeping our daughter on track. We also appreciate your advice regarding classes during high school. We are thankful that you encouraged us to have our daughter tested. It altered our plan and helped with the decision process."

"Not having gone through the college process before, it was helpful to understand the time lines and how to work with the “student services” for students with learning differences. With the information given, I feel that helped us to use these services which allowed our daughter to be accepted into the colleges to which she applied. Thank you so much for all your guidance, support & info."

"I really admire your positive and non-judgmental attitude toward people. We could ask or express any crazy thing and you answered calmly and didn’t raise your eyebrows. You helped us work through the emotions of the process. It really took a lot of pressure off me and reduced my nagging to a bare minimum."

"Thanks you so much for giving _____ the clarity to focus & follow her heart as well as her head. The rapport between you gave _____ trust & confidence.
