getting THROUGH college is tough...

I used to struggle with exactly the same thing.

"I used to struggle with exactly the same thing. During my college years, I often found myself overwhelmed by the academic workload and the pressure to succeed. It felt like an emotional rollercoaster at times, and I didn't always have the tools to cope with the stress and self-doubt. Financial worries were a constant presence, and time management seemed like an impossible puzzle.

Additionally, navigating the complexities of social life and peer pressure was no walk in the park. But, through those experiences, I learned valuable lessons and gained insights that have shaped who I am today. Now, I'm here to share those lessons and provide support to help you navigate these challenges successfully. You're not alone in this, and together, we can overcome these obstacles."

"I was feeling overwhelmed because of the lack of knowledge and understanding to try to support my child in his transition to college. I felt mixed emotions because he was leaving me.. .I was concerned about how was he going to make it and she helped us figure out strategies of how to support him. My son was overly stressing and I had to find a resource to help him. I am happy I found her and so will you!
