From Former Clients & Colleagues

“ Adele was a fantastic counselor for Ansley. She was informative, knowledgeable, kind, and insightful. We definitely learned lots about the admissions process and were guided appropriately. Adele reviewed essays, had weekly calls, and provided the necessary structure to meet all deadlines effectively and efficiently. I would recommend Adele to anyone entering the college admissions process!”
“Todd is a psychologist and former finance professional who has faculty teaching experience at the college level. He is more experienced and insightful regarding the college selection process than any other person I know in the private sector of college counseling. He has counseled more than a few thousand students and families in applying to and enrolling at the best college option. He reduces the stress of this process through his vast knowledge and his counseling talents. He also has a great sense of humor. He is a dynamic fellow who knows what he is talking about and cares about his the students and parents. His expertise in psychology is apparent in his strategic approach to the process of selecting and paying for college.”
