Eileen Schrader, LCSW
You can feel better. Your life can become happier, your relationships more enjoyable. You can begin to feel a purpose in the reality of this challenging world.
I have seen in 30 years of experience people begin to love themselves, and experience the joy of loving others. One of my goals was to work with the Life Span--and I have seen people from 2 to 96! Many people feel unlovable and think no one really understands them. I can listen without judgment. You can tell me your experiences and your feelings. Maybe you feel disappointed or abandoned in life or confused about your direction. Someone may have hurt you. Maybe you are having family problems. You may feel anxious or depressed. Teaching simple and practical tools can help. Taking the time to just talk about your experiences and feelings is so important. Everyone needs to be heard with empathy and to feel that their lives and struggles are heard. There is no problem too big or too small. Before I became a therapist, there were so many different jobs to learn from--office work to factory work--from restaurant work to cleaning houses, to selling hot dogs at the baseball stadium!-- from teaching to copywriting to becoming a Department Head of Social Service in a health care facility, my varied work experience gave me a window into the stressors men and women face on the job. Doing my own work in therapy, required of every student in my graduate school, really transformed my life. It would be a pleasure and a privilege to be a part of your work.

Eileen has been so supportive and flexible with me, the pre therapy questionnaire so we could save some session time getting to know each other was so helpful and efficient, the worksheets throughout different sessions are so helpful and Eileen even had written out highlights of our session because it’s hard for me to remember all the great topics we cover each time

She's been extremely helpful in organizing introspective thoughts and un packing traumas in a logical manner.

She’s nice and she is honest. I had her as a therapist for about a month and while we had some disagreement with values/ beliefs with spirituality, and she felt it would be better for me to have a different therapist, she was respectful and honest. Which I can appreciate. She also shared some basic information about me to her colleagues and wanted to see if they would take me. She found 2 within a few hours and easily explained the process. I do recommend her to others if your values/ beliefs are compatible.

Eileen is an absolute angel of a human. We were matched up during the worst time in my life, & I couldn't have been luckier. We mesh so well, she is so respectful, kind, responsive, challenging, warm, I could go on all day. She truly cares about her clients & their well-being, giving the feeling that you've known her forever or that she's a longtime family member. I'm so grateful to have found her, & to have her help while I heal.
