“Liz, thank you for all the advice you’ve given me, in and outside my college essays. You have considered everything I said in the first meeting, like teaching me how to do something instead of just assigning things to do.

“Liz helped me make a list of colleges to apply to, and she helped me brainstorm and edit my essays. She provided excellent resources and kindly conducted herself, even when disciplining me for not sticking to my schedule. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. I’m so thankful to have had her help. Without her, I would have been so lost.

With anyone else, I’m not sure I would have felt comfortable sharing my intimate thoughts and feelings needed for a successful essay.

“Liz is the biggest support I had when applying to college. I was completely lost and overwhelmed. With her experience and guidance, I showed the best of myself in my college application and got accepted to every college I applied to.  Without her help, I probably would never be in my engineering program now.”

“Liz helped me stay organized and keep my head in the game. She made me feel comfortable to open up to. Thanks Liz!”

“I didn’t know where to go to college. Liz helped me figure that out.”

Liz is the G.O.A.T.! Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I got into my dream school, and I couldn’t have done it without you!”

What surprised me was this wasn’t just about the application process. I feel as though I’ve made a genuine friend in my counselor. The encouragement, emotional support, and conversations that we had were so uplifting. I’m forever grateful.
