Many of my client families mention that they aren’t exactly sure how, or where, to begin the post-secondary search process. Perhaps this is your first child applying to college, it’s been years since you attended (and boy, has it changed!), or college isn’t in the plans for right now, and a productive gap year is a more appropriate goal.

Whatever your reason, you can be assured that my comprehensive experience in college & transition counseling will make the entire experience much more streamlined. I’ll develop a simple plan, and together, we’ll execute! Contact The Good Doctor to get started today!
