My Favorites

I am not employed nor do I receive any remuneration from any company or person I mention on my website. I list them because I believe in the work they do, and their ability to have positive impacts on families.

Educational Consultants (ECs) – ECs are experts at evaluating the needs of children, teens, and young adults and at matching them with the right program. They travel the country evaluating boarding schools, therapeutic wilderness programs, residential treatment centers, and boarding schools. They see the places in person and know the programs well, so this isn’t just a paper match.

Mentors Mentoring takes place between young persons (i.e., mentees) and older or more experienced persons (i.e., mentors) who are acting in a non-professional helping capacity to provide support that benefits one or more areas of the mentee’s development. It is often based upon gaining trust and connection.

Parent Coaches – Coaching is “partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.” The coach is the subject matter expert at coaching, not necessarily the subject matter expert of the client’s coaching topic.
