If you are the parent of a high school student, I would highly recommend utilizing the services of Grey Guidance. We didn’t find much in the way of college assistance at our daughter’s high school (large, public) and felt overwhelmed by the college application process. We knew about the UC and State Colleges in California, but with all the cutbacks, felt they might not be the best choice for our daughter. Emily was able to give us the support and guidance we needed. She helped our daughter with all the phases of the college application process, from creating a time-line for all the work that needed to be done, to compiling a great list of colleges that we would never have known about. Most of all, Emily gave our daughter the confidence she needed to apply to, and be accepted by, a number of wonderful schools. Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you and your child will make. Emily and Grey Guidance can guide your family every step of the way.

What a wonderful experience working with Emily at Grey Guidance. She helped us maneuver through what can be a very stressful process with insight, purpose, schedules, manageable deadlines, and an awareness of our son that I’m not sure we, as parents even had. Having Emily work directly with our son allowed us to step back and have an objective, but caring and well informed advocate keep all of us sane during the process.

Navigating the college application process can be challenging for parents and teens. As a parent, I knew I needed help. Emily worked with both my children. She listens and she cares. It was a very positive experience with very positive results.

I was at a serious crossroads in my life. I was about to graduate from college and had no idea what to do with my life. I had recently given up on pursuing a career in medicine. Even though I knew what I didn’t want to do, I had no idea what I wanted to do. Dr. Grey calmed my anxiety and set up a plan to decipher what I wanted out of life. Using several different techniques (including an MBTI test) I was able to recognize what my strong suits were. Meeting with Dr. Grey made me more confident in my future and made me aware of the possibilities that I never knew about. She’s very easy to talk to and has a wealth of knowledge that she’s willing to share. I seriously recommend Grey Guidance to everyone, whether you’re starting your college admissions process or deciding what your next career move is. Having someone to help you make those decisions is worth so much.

I graduated from law school in 2007 and have been a practicing attorney for the past few years. Recently, I decided it was time to update my resume. I spent a few hours adding the skills I had acquired over the years and organizing them in order of importance. My wife (who is also a lawyer) and I reviewed and tweaked my resume until we were convinced it was perfect. I then sent my resume to Grey Guidance, admittedly skeptical at this point that any improvements were possible. But Emily provided me with valuable feedback and showed me how to characterize some of my skills and accomplishments with more of a leadership tone. She also pointed out the benefit of including a “conversation starter” in my resume – particularly helpful these days when most employers are receiving a lot of resumes. If you are looking to make yourself more marketable, I wholeheartedly recommend Grey Guidance!

Emily really took the time to understand my background and counsel to my specific needs. Her ongoing, personalized support helped me produce a much stronger application and made the process far less stressful and more rewarding. Her understanding of the application process and her extensive experience with different colleges and universities provided great insight and guidance. Her caring, constructive approach made the experience a pleasure and I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to better understand the college application process or maximize the quality of their submission
