College Admissions Counseling
We hired Yvonne after speaking with several college counselors to assist our daughter with completing the common app (we had already selected all the schools on our own). After one session, we knew we had made the right choice! Yvonne is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. My daughter enjoyed all of her sessions with Yvonne and the meetings alleviated much of the stress around completing applications. Yvonne also managed to instill a confidence in our daughter that we could not. We were so pleased with Yvonne's services and our daughter was accepted into her first choice school (and several others). We all would highly recommend Yvonne!Dec 2, 2020Verified

Ms. Espinoza guided our daughter through summer program applications, college selection and college applications. Ms. Espinoza's services provided our daughter with autonomy over this process, yet kept us informed of progress and obstacles along the way. Multiple times, our daughter expressed relief that she had Yvonnes expertise at her disposal, particularly for navigating the various writing portions of the applications. Ms. Espinoza adapted her services to the needs of our daughter, proactively identified issues, and suggested solutions, when appropriate. Ultimately, Yvonne encouraged our daughter to perform to her fullest potential and achieve admission to a highly selective university that was her first choice school. Throughout the process, Ms. Espinoza maintained a professional but warm and compassionate attitude to counseling our family through this process.Oct 3, 2020Review from Google

At the end of our daughters Sophomore year, we hired College Counselor, Yvonne Espinoza, to assist our daughter with the college process. My husband and I couldnt be more grateful and happy to have met her. My daughter is only a Junior, and she has already experienced so many things that wouldnt have been possible without Yvonnes guidance. Yvonne has helped my daughter to explore possible majors and careers through one-on-one counseling and a career survey she gives, and my daughter has been exposed to college programs and opportunities that we didnt even know existed (even though we had 2 sons go to college before her- one at Northeastern and one at Cornell University).My daughter is more confident now in interacting with colleges and about how to navigate things on her own. She also enjoys meeting with Yvonne and trusts and follows her advice. I also regularly reach out to Yvonne with questions and she is always prompt to respond and is very helpful- I definitely feel like we are a team. I can honestly say she has a genuine interest in my daughters well-being and success, and we feel lucky that we have had her to assist our family this past year and will continue to have it through my daughters senior year at Westlake High School. I dont know what wed do without her advice and support and my only regret is that we didnt know of her when my sons went to college.Update: 2020Thanks to all the work Yvonne did guiding us, our daughter got into Barnard College, of Columbia University class of 2023. She loves it! We could not be more proud. We love you Yvonne!Jul 30, 2020Review from GoogleYvonne Espinoza College Counseling Services's reply
Thank you so much for your review, Graciela! I consider myself lucky to be working with you and your family and am so excited to see where your daughter will go to college! I’m grateful that you have entrusted me with helping through this process.

As a former admissions professional and school-based college counselor of 18 years, I hold deep respect for Yvonne having witnessed her many wonderful attributes working with several of my own students. Her work ethic is unmatched, her loyalty strong, and her commitment to serving students unwavering. She has an excellent sense of humor and wit; she really is a delight to be around! In fact, she forges relationships that span years as many of her clients remain in contact with her well after they have enrolled in college. This is a testament to the comfortability clients feel in her presence. Yvonne is accessible, approachable, and cares deeply about their well-being. She is calm and keeps a cool head in the face of what can be a stressful and overwhelming process. Students strongly benefit from Yvonne’s wealth of experience and continuous search to expand her knowledge in the field. She visits a number of college campuses and attends untold counselor workshops and conferences each year. Her insight and knowledge is valued not just by her clients, for she has more than earned the respect from her colleagues in our profession, both at the high school and university levels. She’s just that good! I trust Yvonne Espinoza implicitly and feel confident that, when I recommend her to my students, they will be well taken care of.Jul 22, 2020
