Hey there! I'm Marinelle, an entrepreneur, therapist & unshakable optimist dedicated to helping you transform the way you live, love & lead.
I’m so glad that you found me. Let me tell you who I am and what I’m about. I was born in California but home is where the military sends us…which at the moment happens to be in Georgia. I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who by nature is a ‘glass half full’ kind of gal.
I’ve had the privilege of working with countless people over the last 15 years to help them become the best version of themselves. I’ve worked in the non-profit, military and corporate world both in clinical and leadership roles. I have a masters in Social Work which focuses on:
- the importance of relationships
- understands how our environment influences our thoughts, emotions and behaviors and
- promotes the empowerment of others to make a positive impact in the world around us.
I believe that we all want & deserve to be seen & accepted for who we are...as we are.
It takes bravery to be willing to show up and be seen…to take a light into the dark places & allow others to see you, imperfections & all. Change is hard & doing something unfamiliar can be daunting. But you don’t have to do this alone. Take a step to challenge the thoughts, emotions & actions that get in your way.
I don’t proclaim to be the all-knowing expert on you &, guess what… I’m an imperfect human too. But…
I’m committed to you, I’ll always have your back, and I have the ability to help you make remarkable changes in your life.
If you’re ready to let go of who you think you should be & embrace who you are, I’m ready when you are. Contact me to today to schedule your free consultation because your story & your light are yours to reclaim.

Feeling like an imposter? Are you ready to let go of being who you think you should be & embrace who you are without being douchey?
You’ve gone through life focused on things like career, relationships, achievements, appearances, money. You’ve worked hard to excel in these areas. You should be happy, you have everything you’re supposed to want. But you can’t help feeling like something is missing or thinking about the dreams you didn’t chase. You find yourself feeling anxious; empty; unsatisfied; critical.
You don’t have to keep feeling this way. Therapy can help you stop worrying so much about what other people think and start living the life you dreamed of. It’s a collaborative & personalized process of rediscovering your true authentic self. It’s about letting go of being who we think we should be and embracing who we are, imperfections and all.
We'll work together to help you feel more confident and less frazzled. Learn to ask for what you want & set boundaries. Learn how to thrive even when life throws you a curve ball.
Whether you live in California, Texas, Georgia or abroad we’ll meet online in a secure video platform. You can meet with me from home or anywhere you feel comfortable & have internet services. No more worrying about traffic, having to take time off of work or figuring out how you’re going to be in two places at one time. Flexible scheduling options give you the control to fit therapy into your busy schedule.
Change is possible. Reconnect to your authentic self and transform the way you live, love & lead.

Therapists have many different approaches & styles. Some therapists are gentle & passive, some are more in your face & directive. Some may be very woo-woo & spiritual and others may be more concrete & practical. Finding a good therapy fit is kinda like finding a good pair of comfortable shoes. You may feel more comfortable with certain styles, personalities or approaches & you have to try some on to make sure it fits.
I'm more of an eclectic therapist. I use different therapy techniques depending on what you need. I come from the perspective that we are all doing the best that we can but sometimes we need to learn to do better. I'm collaborative & solution focused. I tend to lean towards exploring how our beliefs influence our actions. While it’s important to acknowledge & honor our pasts, our pasts do not dictate our future. We have the power to re-write our story & we say how our story will end.
