Dr. Mae Sakharov and Associates

College, Graduate School, and Career Counseling

Dr. Mae Sakharov Ed.D Columbia University (1981) has successfully helped families negotiate the college admissions, Gap year, Graduate school, and Career planning processes since 1983 when she opened the first learning center in New York City. She has also been called on as a consultant to school districts, private schools, and churches. Her encouragement and support guides clients to reflect on their own unique experiences to support the application and career change process. Dr. Sakharov is generous with her time and has extensive personal and institutional contacts. Sensitive proofreading without taking away from the student's work is another hallmark of her work. In a relaxed setting in person, electronically or over the phone “Dr. Mae”, helps each person to feel comfortable and supported to flex and honor his or her inner resources and strengths. "My own dream of becoming a special educator began in a most unlikely place on the Bremen, an ocean liner headed for Germany. At that stage in life I was thinking about starting college and changing careers from that of being an actress. My companion and I were seated in the dining room with a family of three: a couple and their twenty-six-year-old daughter, a woman with Down syndrome. Her parents were amazing individuals who accepted the unique qualities of their daughter and respected her as the young adult she was. They had just given her a large German shepherd dog for which she was completely responsible. Seeing her parents' patience as they taught her how to train the dog made a strong impression on me. I realized that with the right kind of teaching, every individual could succeed: it wasn't a question of individual potential but of fulfilling it. That realization gave me the direction I sought and from then on it was mere logistics." Mae Sakharov
