Take a deep breath.
You’ve done everything in your power to set your child up for success. From the time they were born, you have dedicated yourself to their best interests and helping them become the best human possible. There have been wins and struggles. But here they are, in high school, catapulting towards their next chapter. This is the last step–the last thing they truly need help with–before they will be a young adult and, ideally, be ready to take on the heavy lifting of the decisions in their life. This can be an incredibly stressful time as a parent, but it doesn't have to be.
Do you relate to any of the following?
-You want to support your student with the application process, but they don’t seem to want help (despite needing it), and it’s becoming stressful on your relationship.
-You don’t have expertise in the college search and admissions process or you fear your knowledge is outdated.
-Your knowledge of the options available is limited.
-Your student is eager, and you want to give them the best possible chance at reaching their goals.
-Your student is lacking in motivation, but you are confident in their ability to find success in this next chapter if they are matched with the right program.
-Your student needs help finding a connection to their education through an understanding of majors/careers that would be well-suited to them.
-You want help navigating the unknown.
If you connect with any of these statements,
I can help.
As a former English teacher and high school counselor, I have worked with hundreds of students and their families, supporting them with all of these things. I will work to help bridge the gap between you and your student and the things that so often get lost in translation, and between where your student is and where they hope to be.
Let’s discuss how we can partner together to support your student.
