What Can The Summit College Counseling Do For You?

College admissions can be very stressful; students and parents feel lost and confused. I want to help reduce the stress of this process on the entire family. My goal is to provide one-on-one college counseling services to meet the needs of your child and family. I help students put together a strong application for admission, based on their strengths, to universities that are best suited to meet their needs. I work with students throughout high school to guide them on choosing classes, taking standardized testing, extracurricular activities, and other factors that play a role in college admissions.

I work to discover your child’s academic strengths and interests and help highlight their accomplishments, extracurricular activities, and what makes them unique. My students will tell you that I help them understand their strengths, explore their interests throughout high school, and share their stories in their college applications.

The admissions process is fraught with anxiety and stress as students and parents try to figure out what they need to do to prepare for college admissions and ensure they get into university with the financial aid package they need. Let my expertise and experience help guide your child and family through this process.

Do you need help navigating high school and college admissions? Please reach out to me for a free consultation to learn more about how I work with students and families.
