Don't take our word for it.  We work hard for our clients and are thrilled when they let us know how we've done.

Joseph, I know we have said this in the past, but again....THANK YOU. None of our son's success would have happened without you.  All of our meetings, our heartfelt conversations and persistence paid off!  You changed our son's life for the best, and ours, too!  Words cannot express our gratitude!     L. and S. B.

“You stood with us as a family.  You creatively described our daughter for all present, and strongly suggested to her the many strengths she has demonstrated.  A beautiful room full of confessed imperfect adults urge the child to keep trying!  Our gratitude is boundless!      J, R and R M.

“I can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done.  It’s people like you who motivate students to reach their dreams.  From the beginning, you were someone I could look up to…..”  N.R.

“I really can’t thank you enough for your help in my high school years.  You were great at your job and you’ve given me so much confidence to reach my goals and challenge myself.  I can’t even tell you how amazing it’s been to know someone who really cares about my success and well-being.  Thanks, Mr. Heil!”     I.L.


“You gave me hope when I was full of nothing but doubt.  You helped me get a second chance in school and have supported me all the way through it.  Thanks for being an amazing counselor for me.”   N.L.


“…one of Joseph’s greatest gifts is his ability to work collaboratively and effectively with all students.  He is non-judgmental, supportive and open to all life styles and choices.  He embraces diversity and encourages students to find their path vs. the path that may have been parentally pre-determined. He is dedicated to making the world a better place….” B.H.


“Joseph is a true teacher.  Every moment is an opportunity to learn or share with others.  He is the best counselor I have worked with in my 20 years in education.” M.K.


“Joseph is an ally to the youth of the community.”  D.B.


“Today our daughter is successfully situated in her second quarter at UCSC.  Our family owes a huge part of her happiness and success to Joseph Heil.”  V.P. & C.A.


“Joseph’s concern and focus is always on the student.  This generates confidence in him on the part of parents (and by extension, the schools) who may be unhappy with school staff or programs.  His honesty and integrity have been the best problem solving tools, and have diffused more than one adversarial situation.  He has the respect and trust of his clients.”   D.A.


“Both my son and I feel that it is through Mr. Heil’s efforts alone that he is graduating.  He now looks forward to his future with a sense of accomplishment rather than failure.” J.L.


“Joseph is present in every sense for anyone who needs him.  It is a breath of fresh air to see such passion and purpose in a human being.”  C.L.


“I will not remember a thousand days of lectures or a million assignments, but I will always remember our conversations that gave me hope and strength more than I had the day before.”  N.H.
