As each of us goes through life, we will experience difficult transitions. It could be the losses of a loved one or pet to death through disease, accident, or natural causes. Personally, you or a loved one may face cancer or other life-threatening situations. Life’s transitions are challenging. In all cases, you will need support from family, friends, and professionals. My professional experience includes working with adolescents and adults from diverse backgrounds facing challenging transitions in their lives. I have supported clients confronting these transitions while witnessing them gain greater self-awareness. I have also witnessed these clients becoming stronger and more confident through the healing process. I also addressed with clients associated conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, loss of self-esteem, burnout, and just feeling stuck. I offer empathetic and personable individualized therapeutic services utilizing different theoretical orientations. You will have the opportunity to freely express yourself in a safe and non-judgmental space. To help you achieve your goals and make positive changes in your life, I will also gently challenge you to be receptive to new perspectives on your healing journey. If you are ready to face the wind of your life’s transition, reach out to schedule an appointment.

In my experience as a counselor, I have had the privilege of working with a wide range of individuals in various settings. I have worked with children and adults in the community, residential, hospital, and educational settings. In each environment I have witnessed the marvel of human potential firsthand. As a clinician I approach people and the work that I do from the belief that people have the innate ability to grow and heal on their own. My personal life experience and my practice have fostered this belief, recognizing that the process may require or be made more manageable with some assistance or a guide, in the form of counseling. Through my experiences I have witnessed the benefits of the human components that aid in the healing process of psychological symptoms that create difficulty in moving toward fulfillment and full integration of the human experience in the lives of many. The therapeutic relationship, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard are components that for me represent the core of therapy. These components create an experience in which someone can safely explore themselves, their experiences, the world around them, and identify solutions to ailments and the "true self" that is often altered by the world around us.

We all have dealt with some type of family issue before. At times it can be hard to talk about, but sitting on it usually just makes things worse. My role in this process is to assist in delving into how these events have impacted you and how to move forward in future situations. Need to talk about trauma or issues with depression? Let's tackle this together and discover ways to overcome negative associations from the past. I help adults struggling with symptoms of depression and family issues. I also assist with anxiety and have a trauma focused background. I primarily use the tools of compassion, mindfulness, and problem solving to offer new perspectives in dealing with instances of intergenerational trauma. In many cases, certain aspects unknowingly get repeated between parents and their children. This can be addressed through discussing your own understanding as well as opting to make changes for your future.

Life is challenging, you don’t need to navigate it by yourself. If you are bewildered and unsure of your life path, experiencing strained relationships, having difficulty “keeping up” and continually feeling overwhelmed, you are not alone. These are questions that many of my clients are searching for answers to. Life comes with many responsibilities and can be challenging to navigate. Children, adolescents and adults are becoming discouraged, lacking motivation, and frustrated by their commitments. Here are a few of the issues that I assist my clients with; I help children develop their social skills, and how to problem-solve situations, I help adolescents examine their choices in life and how to manage their emotions, and I work with adults to find purpose in life and develop self-care. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I will help guide you to identify your current concerns and to learn about your past to help us with the present. I will help identify your strengths and explore ways to use them to address life’s questions and challenges. Together we will formulate goals to address during our sessions.

Hello, I'm Tracey. Did you know that people do one of two things when they feel like no one is listening? The person either repeats oneself over and over or just stops talking. Did you know that research supports that any person surviving an adverse or traumatic experience will need on average about 7 times to tell their story to begin the healing process? Do you feel tied to a toxic dynamic with one or both of your parents despite you being an adult that has left you living in the past and feeling like a burden, not measuring up, chasing that parent in hopes of a glimmer of insight while finding many of your current life domains are plagued with patterns of problems? Then you are in the right place. I counsel and coach individuals and couples on how these historical, upbringing-related thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are immobilizing you and your relationships with others. People pleasing, perfectionism, avoidance, and anxiety from worry about what others think of you are just some of the ways it can show up in adulthood. Whatever you are experiencing, from trauma to depression to anxiety to addictive behaviors, it does not need to go with you moving forward. You deserve and should be encouraged and supported to be You as You Define You according to your values and beliefs. I'm ready to start helping you find You. We will use a holistic approach that encompasses various approaches, but seeks to take the weight of the world off your shoulders and allows for being human. You know it's time to get started and overdue. So, let's get going on taking You Back.

Most mental health symptoms can be traced back to trauma; it’s not what's wrong with you, but what has happened to you. The effects of trauma can last for months, years, or a lifetime. When there is trauma, negative beliefs are created, inhibiting our ability to function fully, which affects the way we view ourselves, others, and the world we live in. We may feel that if we could just "push through" or bury our symptoms and memories, that is enough, until it isn't. My practice philosophy is that we all have inherent worth and value, and possess the ability to heal. Therapy allows us to identify the negative beliefs that were created from traumatic experiences, and transform them so that our inner and outer experiences change in the ways that we desire. It all starts within. Reaching out for help with life’s challenges is one of the most important things one can do for their long-term health and well-being. I walk with you, never judging, and always supporting you with your goals.

I want to make therapy as comfortable as possible. Coming to therapy can be an intimidating process. The last thing people want is some stuffy, uptight professional that makes people feel like they need to censor themselves. I pride myself in being warm, friendly, and relatable. I view therapy as a collaboration between the therapist and client. I will do my best to make your therapy experience positive. My role is to listen, teach, and collaborate with my clients. I have worked in a variety of settings since embarking on my journey as a mental health clinician including hospice care, domestic violence, community mental health, intensive outpatient, and urgent mental healthcare. My preference is to work with mature adolescents and adults of all ages both in person and virtually. I believe mental health services should be accessible; therefore, my private pay rate for those making under 40k per year is $80 per session. Otherwise, my regular private pay rate is $100 per individual session and $120 for family. I also accept insurance. I do not provide couples therapy.

I greet every client with the belief that we are born into this world with the capacity for living unique and healthy lives. I believe that it is the stressors of challenging individual experiences, pain and illnesses, trauma, and attachment injuries that move us off our centers and cause symptoms of depression, anxiety, and dysfunctional defensive behaviors. My goal is to create a setting in which my client feels safe and supported, and therefore able to re-examine the patterns that form our thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Together as a collaboration we can take the fascinating journey and reach for full potential, coherence and health

Do you struggle with depression, anxiety, a challenging relationship, or childhood/adult trauma that affects your day-to-day life, your relationships, or even your ability to function? Do you feel exhausted, overwhelmed, or lost with being able to just get through the day? Do you question or wonder if life could or will get better? Now more than ever, people are feeling anxious, depressed, uncertain and overwhelmed and some are feeling nothing at all about the struggles. I love to empower high-functioning men and women to recognize their strengths and resiliency. With a mix of cognitive therapy and bodywork together we can get to the root of the problem. When taking a holistic approach together we can address the mind, body, and spirit.

I have been working in the field of mental health for almost two decades. I bring years of personal experience along with genuine and solid empathy for the people I work with. I use different modalities to assist me in providing my best self as a psychotherapist. For example, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Change Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Trauma-informed care are worth mentioning. I have years of experience in working with dual diagnosis ( mental health and addiction issues). I have worked with individuals, and couples as well as led groups. I have worked with adults as well as youngsters and teenagers. My approach to therapy is rooted in a strengths-based perspective. I assist my clients in discovering their strengths, qualities and resources and leave them to identify their areas of need and the areas of their lives they need to work on. Then I assist them to set their own goals both short term and long term based on their needs. I assist them in identifying how they can pursue those goals using their strengths and resources. I believe in empowering my clients to make their own decisions and using their own problem-solving skills and decision-making skills. I believe that success builds on each other and my clients will continue to succeed building on their strengths, makiing progress, taking credit for their progress, getting genuine encouragement, getting genuine applause, genuine guidance and building their self esteem, self confidence. People usually know what they want to do with their lives. They just need support and assistance. I am here to provide that support and assistance in the best professional manner possible.

I began training to be a psychotherapist 15 years ago after having worked in publishing for many years. Becoming a Social Worker and helping others has always been a kind of calling for me, but it took a little while for me to arrive at my goal. I hope that that part of my story helps to prove that it is never too late to change or to pursue goals. I continue to integrate the things that I have learned through formal education and through my own experiences of life so that I am best able to help others who are experiencing distress and difficulties with navigating life. We all need additional support from time-to-time, especially given the complicated, fast-changing world we live in. My goal as a psychotherapist is to be a source of support and assistance as you develop insight into the difficulties you face and as you begin to develop strategies for change. Through interactive-therapy sessions, I help you to understand and clarify life’s challenges and I support you as you begin to make the changes that are needed to make progress towards your goals. I help my clients to discover and explore a positive path in therapy that they can then continue to follow as they pursue their goals and their lives independently.
