What our clients say...

“My son now is a very different person from the boy whose college career you launched. In this process, he crossed the bridge to adult awareness and remarkable self-understanding. The Talmud says we should honor a teacher as a parent. My wife was the mother of the child and you are the mother of the new adult.”

— Father, New York, New York

“Your ideas, encouragement, and enthusiasm have been invaluable.”

— Father, Vero Beach, Florida
