My name is Lisa Scott-Hayes, the founder and CEO of Love School Counseling Café. I am a wife and mother of two children. My passion for school counseling stems from the belief in my heart that everyone deserves a fair chance at their dreams.
In 1994 I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and, again, in 2014 I added a Master’s Degree in School Counseling to my academic profile. Since 2018, I've been a member of both the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) and the Delaware School Counselor Association (DSCA).
Being born with Cerebral Palsy, I was told that my appearance and speech would impact my abilities and success in life. Although I have some physical limitations, it has never discouraged my ambition for success. Being blessed with a strong family unit who advocated and encouraged my growth, enabled me to be determined in my educational journey. Anyone who has doubted my abilities has been proven wrong!
Creating Love School Counseling Café in 2021 is proof that labels are not limitations and a chance to highlight that nothing is impossible if you embrace the potential you have within you. My goal is to make sure no students "fall through the cracks" by helping parents and students work together to get the education they deserve. Moreover, I have built a team whose goal and mindset are to cultivate greatness through empowering and inspiring all to reach their fullest potential!
Our mission is to assist all students from every educational system to reach their academic and career goals. Love School Counseling Café serves homeschooled, virtual, and traditional K-12 students and returning students seeking a career change. Love School Counseling Café offers personal consultations and advisement to help students discover and achieve their unique educational and career goals. Whether it be the traditional path of earning a high school diploma or GED, enrolling in a college or trade school, or enlisting in the Armed Forces, we are committed to guiding you through the process.
Our services are structured to meet each student's academic, social/emotional, and career development goals. Using the American School Counselor Association guidelines, we strive to close achievement and opportunity gaps. We are passionate about meeting the needs of underserved populations. Among the services we offer are evaluating your current progress and making recommendations for a course of study, completing the FAFSA application and the financial aid process, completing college applications and supplemental essays, researching and applying for scholarships, as well as drafting cover letters and resumés.
At Love School Counseling Café, we believe every student we serve can achieve their dreams for their future. Every student has unique talents and challenges, so every learning journey is different. Labels and limitations do not define you or your ability to succeed, but potential means nothing unless you do something with it.
Remember that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and dare to begin your journey! We are committed to creating a positive and encouraging environment that enables our clients to excel. Our diverse team brings a variety of perspectives and decades of experience in public education to develop an individualized approach to each client’s academic and career aspirations.
