"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."

“I hired Louise because my daughter’s school had one college counselor for 500 students. Throughout the application process, Louise really listened to my daughter and motivated her to pursue what excited her; she made my daughter feel safe to explore and just try.
The biggest asset was support with writing. Louise introduced her to the writing process, making her thinking visible. Through their work together, my daughter developed a personal connection with -- and ownership of -- her writing. Reflecting at each stage, she saw how intentional steps could culminate into an amazing product. We absolutely LOVED her personal statement; it brought tears to our eyes, and we will hold it close to our hearts. In fact, she was so inspired that she signed up for a creative writing course -- the first and only class she selected for the pure joy of learning.
With Louise, this experience had meaning beyond getting into college."
College Admissions & Writing
My sessions with Louise turned my life around. At first, I thought getting a coach was not going to be helpful, but I was very wrong; it ended up being the very thing I have been missing in my life and for my recovery.
I sought out a coach because I had been dealing with a lot of mental health challenges. I have done many different types of therapy; however, I always felt there was a gap between the skills I learned and the way they could be applied to my life. Louise has guided me with steps that feel possible to achieve, steps that have made a remarkable difference in my life. Skills I am developing include: practicing self kindness and compassion, and incorporating healthy, constructive and positive actions. I feel the changes during and immediately after our sessions. I have never had such a helpful individual on my team!
