Welcome! If you are a mother to at least one teenager, and you’re trying desperately to make sense of today’s overwhelming college planning process, you’ve come to the right place.
As an independent college counselor for over ten years, I have developed my uniquely successful College Edge Method to support YOU through the overly complicated college search your child will soon begin.
I want to help you understand exactly what it means (& what it doesn’t mean) to apply to college today, so YOU can become the trusted resource your teenager needs.
Can you envision it? Less confusion, less fighting, less fear throughout the college search.
I calm the frantic student whose mind cannot keep up with her growing list of questions and fears.
I fill in the space for the timid student who is so quiet he cannot even think of a question to ask.
And I meet the others somewhere in the middle, at their unique starting points.
The simple beauty of the College Edge Method is that a well-equipped parent can use it too.
You don’t need a fancy counseling certification. (I don’t have one.)
You don’t need to know the stats on every college on the map. (There’s more than one app for that.)
You may be thinking, But…can’t you just do this for me? Will you please just help my child with his essays?
Or perhaps you are wondering,
Why focus on MOM, when we are constantly being told our teens should be “taking ownership” of their own futures?
Because we all know that when MOM “gets it,” everything goes more smoothly. For everyone.
With the right support and advice, you can tap into your hard-earned parenting abilities to make the college process work for your teen and your entire family.
- make connections
- remember details
- plan ahead
- focus on what matters most
- and truly listen to each other
Anyone can give you a checklist. What you truly need help with is everything that transpires in the space between those to-do items.
The results will speak for themselves. You and your child will experience a less hectic, more informed, and often enjoyable college search. Your relationship will grow stronger in the final stretch of your child’s time at home.
