  • Trauma-sensitive, LGBTQ-friendly college admissions • 917-426-4708 •  • remote • Website FacebookInstagramLinkedIn • I help students apply to college and write a sparkling essay that gets noticed. If you or your student have health conditions (including mental health and neurodiversity), I can also help you apply for disability accommodations and navigate other disability-related questions, like what kind of accommodations might be available and whether to disclose your identities on an application. You may also feel free to reach out if you are facing academic or disability-related difficulties after you have already started college, or if you have questions about whether I can help your specific situation.

    While I am aware that no university can create a perfectly safe environment for LGBTQIA+ people, I want to use my experience to help you find a college that is as safe and welcoming as possible. I have over 13 years of experience working in higher education and have been featured in publications such as LGBTQ and ALL, Autism Parenting Magazine, Collegiate Parent, Thrive Global and Thriveworks. I also hold a PhD from Duke University.

    Please note that I am not a medical provider and cannot provide medical treatment (my doctorate is in the humanities). However, I have extensive experience navigating the healthcare system and am happy to help you access medical care if you need it.

    My pronouns are (she/hers). I am a female cisgender person, and I get my gender news from trans advocates with lived experience. My practice is trauma-sensitive, LGBTQ-friendly (including trans-friendly), disability-friendly, and welcoming to immigrants and international students. I honor your privacy and will not disclose your identities outside of our meetings.

    I work remotely and am available to assist students nationally and internationally. You won't need to commute, and you can get help even if you are outside the Durham area. Looking forward to hearing from you! LGBTQ-owned? NoAAILA-Owned? No
