Counseling Philosophy:

"There is a place for every student to thrive and succeed; the goal of applying to colleges is to find that place. I want to help students shape and tell their stories, to learn and be proud of what makes them unique—this turns a daunting process into a thrilling one, the search for their next chapter of life."
