Planning for college is a unique, exciting opportunity to shape and launch your future. As an independent college counselor, I guide students of all aspirations through a creative, rewarding journey of self-discovery, empowering them to find and be accepted to the colleges where they will thrive. Whether you are looking for an innovative liberal arts college, a spirited state university, have your sights set on the Ivy League, or just want to explore the possibilities, I can help you get to the college that is the right academic, social and financial match for who you are now and who you want to become.
College admissions is more complex and competitive than ever before and can be challenging for families to navigate on their own. I build relationships with students and parents, working alongside them as an "expert friend" to create a collaborative admissions process that leads to success. My supportive approach, expertise and up-to-date knowledge will enable you to have more time, less stress and anxiety, maximize your potential for scholarship funds, maintain a peaceful parent/child connection and have fun as you make this exciting journey together.
I have over thirteen years of experience as a college counselor and hold a Certificate in College and Career Counseling from UCLA. My practice is enhanced by my previous careers as an English teacher, middle and high school principal, and professional writer. I hold a BA in English from UC Berkeley, a MA in English and Creative Writing from Boston University, and a MA in Educational Leadership from St. Mary's College, as well as several teaching credentials.
I provide college admissions counseling throughout the San Francisco Bay Area or virtually throughout the U.S. and internationally.

In these uncertain times, planning for college can seem uniquely challenging. While some aspects of the college admissions process are on hold, this is still a great time to set your college planning in motion! I'm continuing to work with clients virtually & can help you start (or continue) your journey to college so you'll be right on track when life returns to normal (hopefully soon!).
