Welcome to College Edge Counseling Services

Let us take the anxiety off your plate.

Who We Are


I conceived of College Edge Counseling Services when I realized there was a real need for private college counselors to help busy families with the many daunting aspects of the college application process.

Essay writing. Scholarship research. Test preparation. Finding the right school. College interviews.  That’s a lot to think about.


Since your son’s or daughter’s Guidance Counselor has hundreds of students assigned to them, they aren’t able to do it all.       

Are you confident you can take up the slack with your busy schedule?  

Let me do it for you. You’ll be glad you called.
