Let's Work together

My favorite thing about my job is helping people realize that they are capable of more than they knew. That’s why the foundation to all my work, whether it’s college essay coaching or one-on-one counseling, is the personal relationship I create with my clients.

One-on-One Counseling

People often ask me if my counseling work is like therapy. "It's definitely therapeutic", I tell them, "but the emphasis is not on 'solving' your problems on a mental level, but rather developing a deeper awareness of how you're holding back". Because I use meditative and somatic techniques, along with tools like non-violent communication, breathing practices, and direct expression, a session may feel different from what you're used to in therapy. Sometimes the work is slow, sometimes it can produce profound insight, and even feel like a rush. My goal is to help you develop a more enlivened way of being.

College Essay Coaching

I have been around the college process nearly all my life, and have learned what makes a good college essay based on student's actual results. I have seen firsthand what kind of writing gets students into their dream schools.

During my meetings with students, I help demystify the process so that they feel empowered to forge their own path. I also get to know students personally, which allows me to draw out their best ideas.

For many students, the college process is the first time they've been asked to reflect on themselves in writing. My job is to make sure that they write essays that display both passion and insight, humility and growth.

Academic Writing Help

I also assist high school and college students with academic essay writing. Students who work with me not only see better grades on their papers, but learn how to do the level of writing that they will need in their careers.
