As a parent, I know we can't help but be concerned about our children's future. All we want for them it to have happy, successful and fulfilling lives but what does that mean for your teen or young adult? What does life after high school look like for them? Would they like to go to college or enter directly into the workforce? What other options are there and how do you make the right choice?

As Your Student Life Coach, I assist students and their parents with education and career planning through providing sound, impartial information to help sort through all the options and make the best decisions. I help young people get on the right track and develop the skills to take on whatever obstacle they may face throughout their education, career and life:

As a life coach for high school students,  I help students better understand themselves and guide them in exploring educational and career paths that are suitable for them. Should they choose to attend college, I help students develop the proper mindset and skills to achieve academic success and get the most value out of the college experience. 

As a life coach for college students, I know that sending a child off to college can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking time. Is your son the kind of student that will succeed socially and academically, regardless of the obstacle? Is your daughter focusing on the social benefits of going to college (as opposed to the academic)? Wherever your student is at, they can benefit from learning college success strategies from an experienced student life professional. However, it is important to know that most colleges and universities expect students to seek assistance should they encounter an obstacle while students often don't know who to talk to or are too busy or reluctant to seek help. As Your Student Life Coach, I am available to help your student transition to life at college, build social, academic, time management and leadership skills, select a major and prepare for their career through developing networks and learning effective job search strategies.  

For life after college, coaching offers my clients continued support as they adjust to their career or graduate/professional school. 
As Your Student Life Coach, I will partner with your student to help them clarify their goals and specify action steps on how to achieve them. Since this is your student’s life, and their education, it is ultimately up to them to follow through with agreed-upon action steps and achieve their goals. Coaching brings insight, energy and motivation to convert their dreams to reality!
College is a significant investment of time and money. Most families do not realize the implications of a few failed courses during the freshman year or of a few unwise choices made in young adulthood. These unfortunate events can have tremendous impacts on academic progress, financial stability and life planning. 
As parents, we all want to see our children be successful in their education and life. Why leave your child's future to chance? Set them up for success by contacting me, Your Student Life Coach, to discuss how coaching can help your student achieve their goals!  I am available for a free 30-minute consultation by phone, which can be arranged here.
