“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” is a metaphor used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude in the face of adversity. Lemons represent adversity or difficulty in life and making lemonade is turning those difficulties into something sweet or positive.

I have worked with stacy for a month on issues that have caused me a lot psychological challenges. She was very resourceful and understanding with the approach she used to attend to me. She taught me how to see my issues from a psychological professional point of view and offered life changing activities and techniques that would help me to stay on top of my life. I am deeply grateful to have had her for my help!
Stacy is very understanding and helpful. I feel better after each of our chats and know I can talk to her through messages and she’ll get right back to me.
Stacy is a pleasure to work with!
Stacy and I have been having sessions for a few weeks now and I feel extremely comfortable with her. She is not only great at listening but also with providing solutions and tools. She is quick to respond to messages — I am grateful for having found her when I did.
I was a little apprehensive of the time difference but Stacy is brilliant. She listens, supports and guides me. This has been a godsend!
Stacy has been an invaluable source of support and validation for me in the 4 months I've had video sessions with her. She checks in through messaging, and sends me worksheets and meditations that help me keep my perspective in check in between sessions. I particularly appreciate how she shares personal stories to relate to a situation I am currently in. Very grateful to have been matched with a warm, compassionate counselor who also tells me things as they are when I forget to do it for myself.
