Let's face it - whether applying to middle school, high school, or college, the admissions process can seem daunting, impersonal, and labyrinthine.



From a young age, I discovered worlds within words; parting the proverbial coats, I entered a Narnia of my own making. Let me help you make yours. 




The term -- “Executive Functioning Skills” -- gets thrown around a lot, but what does it actually mean?



As a personal and professional coach, I am committed to equipping and empowering clients to lead lives they love.

Executive Functioning, Writing, & College Admissions

"I sought out Louise because I needed someone who 'got' me, who understood and valued my personality and learning style, who would work with me and learn with me. I needed someone who could help me one-on-one to navigate the transition between middle and high school.

Louise did all this and more. She took the time to get to know ME, to translate strategies into my own 'code.' With her coaching, I developed the skills and confidence to organize myself, to write and edit, and to apply to college. She pushed me to want to work hard, to be better, to become more. I looked forward to every session; she taught me to love learning again.

Far and away, the best thing Louise did for me was take an interest in who I am, kindling an authentic and enduring connection."
