Thank you so much for all the wonderful work you did with A., Karen. It is an overwhelming, emotional process, and we were so grateful for your knowledge and guidance during this time. The college exploration and application process is a difficult time, for the teen and everyone else involved.

Your support enabled her to become more confident and independent in her final application decisions.
