Empowering Diverse Learners to Succeed in Higher Education

College Consulting with a Difference

We provide a personalized, supportive experience for families and students preparing for college, with a focus on helping students get accepted into the right school and succeed once there.

Our practice focuses on two key areas:

  1. Matching the student with higher education programs that are the best academic, social, and personal fit for their needs, strengths, and preferences.

  2. Developing college readiness skills to ensure students not only gain acceptance but can thrive in their chosen institution. Depending on the student's needs, we work on self-awareness, self-advocacy, social communication, time management, and more.

We collaborate closely with families to develop a comprehensive plan, guiding them through the often overwhelming college process. Our goal is to set the student up for holistic success - intellectually, emotionally, socially, and in terms of independence.

Our mission is to empower diverse learners and facilitate their success in higher education.

College Readiness Coaching

Our practice focuses on college readiness skills, to ensure that our students not only are accepted to a school, but that they can be successful and thrive once there. Skills we work on include, self-awareness, self-advocacy, social communication, time management, and more.


College Consulting

We offer guidance and coaching from the very start, through the application process, until you are on your way as a college freshman and beyond. We work closely with you to identify needs, strengths and wishes, and will help guide the process forward. 


Continued Support

After receiving acceptances to colleges and deciding on where to go, the excitement sets in - and so do the nerves! We are here to guide our students throughout the summer before college and during the freshman fall to support a successful transition.

Our Process

How do we work?


Free Consultation

During our consultation, you will learn more about how we work and we get to know your family and your needs. We take a personalized approach and together we will determine the next step and what services serve you and your family the best. 


College Consulting

The next step is college consulting. The college application process can be complex, but we will help keep you on track. We offer individualized services through packages or hourly consulting.


Discovery Session

During the discovery session we meet the student, review learning history, educational background, needs and wants, and assess college readiness skills. We then recommend next steps, including college consulting, college readiness coaching, or alternative paths.


College Readiness Coaching

Depending on needs we have discussed, we design an individualized curriculum for each student, focusing on skills such as self-advocacy, self-awareness, social communication, and executive function focusing on college readiness. 


Review Offers & Enroll

When acceptances have arrived, we can help you review the offers, helping you decide based on scholarships, program options, accommodations and other factors that are uniquely important to you


College Freshman Year

This is a big, exciting and scary step for all students, but it can be extra daunting for students who may have struggled socially or with independence and time management in high school.  We continue our support through Freshman year in college as needed.

 What people are saying 

After every meeting with Marie, I felt like we grew closer! She made the college application process enjoyable and fun because I felt like we could talk about anything and connect it back to college. She helped me figure out my strengths and how to portray those qualities in my application. I was more confident about applying to college with these coaching sessions. - Amy
