September + a High School Senior = Stress – followed by a Formula for Success!

School is back in session and high school seniors have deadlines for essays, college applications, scholarship applications – not to mention their current academic work and activities. Sometimes parents and students see deadlines differently and that frustration leads to stress at home. Students want to handle the college plan on their own; parents know that the calendar marches ahead and that best intentions don’t always equal deadlines met.

That could be the school counselor, a teacher, another trusted adult – or I can help. Check out my information at I would be happy to talk with you about your senior and help you plan next steps.


Wishing you so much success in this journey! Mary
