About Ben


I graduated Cum Laude from Princeton University in 2017 with a B.A. in English and a certificate in Creative Writing.

Since then I’ve been taking courses, and attending trainings, seminars, and retreats, so that I could become the best healer I could be. I’ve had a daily meditation practice for the past eight years, and I bring this awareness deeply into my work.

I am also an expert college essay coach. I have spent most of my life around the college process, having worked under my father, a private college counselor based out of Westchester, NY for years.


“Ben Goodman is an exceptional counselor, and even more importantly, a truly remarkable man. I have been impressed by his intelligence, his patience, his communication skills, and his empathy throughout the months he has been working with our daughter. I recommend him without hesitation.”

“Ben was very attentive, and supportive throughout my college application process. When I was writing my college essays, he helped me organize my thoughts and brainstorm ideas that led to well-written and thoughtful essays that I was proud to submit. I was very happy with my results, and I highly recommend hiring him for any and all college related needs.”

“Ben has helped me improve my writing become more clear and concise. My English grades have improved dramatically. He is very accommodating with his schedule and is extremely patient.”
