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.

My son is attending the university of his dreams because of Colleen. Sure, he took the right classes and got the right grades, but that’s only the start! I had no idea. The college application process is incredibly complex, competitive and driven by unrelenting deadlines. It’s over a year-long process that Colleen has mapped out with a level of support and organization that is surpassed by none.  Colleen held SAT/ACT prep workshops, matched personal strengths & interests with the best college choices, searched scholarships and grants, and sat side-by-side my son to complete every single aspect of the FASFA and the university application.  Colleen’s services were the best investment we ever could have made.  Go ASU Sun Devils! We love you, Colleen!
