How David helps students

College Admissions

Choosing and applying to college is frequently stressful and unpleasant. The transition to college should be based on insight and self-discovery rather than rankings and status. To lessen concerns and dispel misconceptions, call for a relaxing consultation.

Boarding Schools

Boarding school options range from highly academic, traditional schools to nurturing campuses catering to students who learn differently or who need structure and support to succeed.

Therapeutic Programs

Navigating programs can be challenging. The range of outdoor behavioral health (wilderness therapy,) therapeutic boarding schools, and residential treatment centers is daunting. David can help you find the proper level of care.

Helping Educators

And Other Professionals

David lectures around the country on college admissions and students with special needs. Help your administration, faculty, or membership gain insight into the challenges facing students.
