Clients Served: Students, Adults

Focus

:

I specialize in working with high school students, from grades 9-12th. I have also worked with young adults and college students who still need guidance finalizing their college major and future careers paths. I have worked with primarily Asian American families, since I am familiar with the generational culture differences where their parents have not graduated college from the U.S.

Experience

:

I have worked in education for over 16 years, and specifically have been working with the Highlands Ability Battery test as a consultant for about 12 years. During this time, I have studied the patterns and results of high school students and can easily depict the reasons why they may be struggling or thriving in certain areas. I would say about 95% of my clients have often said my diagnosis of their study/life habits have been “spot on” and have even provoked the students’ parents to take the test themselves, after being surprised by the accuracy of the results! I have great relationships with all of my clients!

My Methods:
I have a personalized questionnaire that I ask clients to complete before taking the test. Then after our review session, I provide a follow up email to give my suggestions of what I think clients should do to help thrive in their environment – whether it be for school or work. I also give my “Things to Keep in Mind” suggestions so they can ask specific questions for their future teacher, manager or supervisor to make sure that their job/internship/work is a good fit. I also give my suggestions of things to look out for, so that they are not committing a path that might not be a good fit. This has helped many people, students in particular, to not go down a path for many years and realize later that it is not a good fit at all.

I typically give about 15 college major and career suggestions, and then conclude with my top 3 for each specific client. This gives you a wide range of options, but also trims down the list to something you can work on for the time being.
