Why Academic Life Coaching for students?
I especially like working with teens because it is such a vibrant time of life, full of ideas and possibilities . . . and pressures. I had a rough time in high school and am passionate about coaching so that others can feel encouraged and supported. Explore. Engage. Excel.
