College Counseling

Having worked in colleges and universities throughout the northeast for nearly a decade and a half, Dana has seen the importance of matching a student’s academic and co-curricular interests to an institution’s offerings. By focusing on fit, we will identify schools that allow students to soar.

As a parent, you are the expert on your student, having served as their advocate since birth.  The college transition process can be a fantastic opportunity for a shift toward self-advocacy and building on students’ strengths.  Dana especially enjoys helping parents increase their understanding and navigate this shift to help bolster their student’s successful transition to postsecondary education or college. 

Sorting through all the college variables can feel overwhelming.  Dana works with students to identify the settings and resources that will enable them to succeed, including academic areas of interest, geographic location, class sizes, advising, tutoring, disability resources, extracurricular programs, and more.

Working together through each stage of the process, from searching and essay writing, to submitting applications and applying for financial aid and scholarships, to making the final decision, students and parents will feel confident, prepared, and even excited to address the challenges ahead.

“I just wanted to say thank you for all of your guidance and expertise throughout the college application process.  When we first spoke I remember wishing the process could be exciting for Caitlin instead of stressful and confusing.  Throughout this whole process I have watched Caitlin’s excitement and confidence grow as she explored all of her options with you.  Her meetings with you from deciding where to apply to writing the essays were incredibly stress free.  When she started her senior year, she was really able to focus on her school work instead of stressing over her college applications.  Then when she opened up her acceptance from Fairfield, her excitement was just incredible!  I really can’t thank you enough for all of your support!”

Elizabeth, parent of a graduating high school senior, class of 2023

“When Dana and I connected through her SEPAC presentation at our high school last year, I immediately asked her to work with my daughter, Ann. Dana helped to break the search process down and helped Ann create a college list based on her interests and strengths. Later on, Dana worked to keep Ann organized with her many essays and deadlines. We are thrilled that Ann will be attending her top-choice school next fall! I appreciate so much all that Dana has done for her.”

Paula, parent of a college first-year, college class of 2026

“Dana’s expert knowledge of the college process combined with her flexibility, organizational skills and personal touch made her the perfect choice to help start Chloe’s college journey.”
