Workshop: Make the College Transition Easier

Your daughter is going off to college.
You provided her with bedding and a mini-fridge. 

Now, provide her with the skills to handle
the challenges that are bound to come.

Going away to college can be difficult, stressful and life altering. While no transition is easy, the move from home to college in our fast paced, success driven, social media obsessed culture can be particularly intimidating. College freshmen satisfaction rates are at an all-time low and mental health disorders are at an all-time high. We want to help.
