Serving students in the mid-peninsula area of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties


In talking with students today, I repeatedly hear feelings of frustration or failure because they don’t know how to meet the expectations of their teachers, parents, coaches, or themselves.  These are bright, eager kids who are fully capable of performing at high levels, but they have not yet figured out strategies that can help them to be successful in school and in life.

I work with students from middle school through college who want to take control of their academic and personal lives.  By engaging in a collaborative, goal-oriented coaching process, I help students identify their aspirations and then develop systems and strategies to make their goals a reality.

If your child could use help and support in any of these areas, call or email me today.
