I DO NOT charge hourly fees for any of my counseling or consultation services.

Complimentary Initial Consultation
This is a complimentary 60 minute consultation with you and your child.  We will discuss your educational goals and how my services can help make them become a reality.
Comprehensive Counseling Package
Comprehensive college planning can start as early as the freshman year in high school. It includes extensive consultation meetings (topics of focus for each meeting), student and parent assessments, continual academic evaluations, college admissions related research, college application management, etc.   Most families begin work in the junior year of high school.  However, if your child is interested in highly selective schools, majors that will require auditions, or obtaining athletic scholarships,  it is advisable to begin the process early.
