There are many great Educational Consultants and Independent College Counselors in Houston! However, you will pay for those services in a big way. I am unique in that I focus on students who are generally active with their college process but need a little bit of extra help. I can work with you intensely for 3-4 weeks to get that last essay or resume crafted or over the course of 6 months to a year to really dig deep and prepare. That is why I charge an hourly rate, versus a package rate! I genuinely enjoy working with students one on one (I am already employed as a college counselor elsewhere so I don't rely on this as my sole income!)

A little bit about me: I hold a Masters in Counseling with a PPS Clear Credential from the state of California. I have worked in general school counseling since 2002, including college preparation, social, emotional, academic and crisis counseling and intervention. Experiences in public, private, foreign and domestic schools has made me culturally aware and adept at working with not only domestic students but international students and third culture kids. I have written hundreds of individualized letters of recommendation for my students and assist students from freshmen year through crafting essays, resumes, applications and final decisions in the senior year. My priority is to help students discover their best fit. This encompasses research on culture of the university or college, programs of study, location, cost, admissions criteria and any other student and family requirements. I expect my students to involve themselves and to take an active part in researching colleges and universities. My knowledge of the college process has helped my students gain admission to the most selective of universities to liberal arts colleges, regional universities as well as enrolling at community college. I am proficient in working with international students on L2 and F1 visas. I have attended national and state college counseling conferences and forums and have presented at our state conference for two years. I have personally visited well over 75 colleges and universities around the US and overseas.

College Counseling

I am currently a college counselor in a private school in Houston and hold a MA Counseling and PPS from the state of California since 2002. I have experience college counseling in public, private, domestic and foreign schools. Working with both international (F-1, L-2) and domestic students has helped me become proficient in colleges and universities in the US, UK, Canada and American schools overseas. My top priority is helping students find the best fit for college.
