Academic admissions and college administrative systems can be insensitive and hard to navigate when making decisions about college for the first time or getting your student back after time away. Many students and families often don't know they can ask for help or who to turn to when faced with challenges or obstacles. Having an expert to point you in the right direction, stand with you through challenges, and show you how deal with obstacles when they appear can make all the difference. We work with families hand in hand to build resilience and give students the best possible chance at success.
Intervention is all about response time and corrective action. If you have a student who is faced with disciplinary action, academic probation, or suspension we can facilitate an effective plan for recovery. Knowing who to involve and what to say to prevent compounding consequences or possible dismissal and expulsion is the kind of support you need in moments like these. We act as advisor, guide, and advocate in these processes and stand with you as a protector in getting your student back in good standing.
Many students have struggled with the road to college. Growing numbers of students have been receiving academic or therapeutic support in high school and families have concerns about taking the big step to a college campus. Many have tried a year of college and failed out due to poor organization, problems with socialization, and increasingly often succumb to substance use. Others have had to go to residential treatment and are making plans for a return to campus after a therapeutic crisis. Having a solid plan and a specialized college advisor is the key to success.
Our team works with parents and students who need guidance and support in dealing with a young adult facing the challenges of school and independence. We help families build a new relationship dynamic and parent more effectively as their student faces the challenges of independence. We help parents see familial patterns differently, build a plan for success, and move effectively toward it. Our goal is to help families navigate stages of change with a solution-focused approach. Is your child struggling with school or academics, mental illness or addiction, social adjustment, independent living skills? We help you take stock of the challenges, make a plan, focus on solutions, set limits, and hold them.
