Welcome to Colleen’s Creative Consulting. It is my goal to guide students to the next step on their journey to college!

My goal is to assist high school students and their families in selecting and applying to colleges and universities that are the “best fit” for them. We provide customized counseling services for all students.

I work “one-on-one” with students and in workshop settings.  I review their choices of high school courses, extra-curricular activities, and community service, and assist them in preparing for college admissions tests.  I also counsel them on the “best fit” college selection and application process.

Colleen’s help in the college admissions process kept me from going insane during my senior year. She truly cares about helping all of her students with her one on one meetings, round table reviews, and consistent tweaking of essays. But more specifically to me, being a student who hadn’t toured many colleges and was the first child in my family headed to college, she provided insight on the colleges I really didn’t want to go to even if I liked them online, helped get me in contact with resources to improve my test scores and set deadlines which kept me from procrastinating. With Colleen’s help, I was accepted at all the colleges I was interested in, including UC Berkeley, UC Santa Barbara and UC Davis. Ultimately I decided to attend Cal Poly SLO with a major in biology because it was the best fit for me as a student. I wouldn’t be here without her and all her expertise. Thank you Colleen!
