If you decide to connect with me for counselling I first focus on building a strong relationship with you to give us a foundation to work from. Whatever issues you are facing I am ready to partner with you to explore the history of the issue and work on making effective change happen. I use a Somatic approach which considers how your nervous system works, the effects of trauma / PTSD, and focuses on balancing the mind / body system. I also use a Narrative therapy approach considering identity and meaning making. Finally I incorporate Psychoanalytic theory and practice to consider life long human development.

How many people are willing to understand the true feelings in a person's heart? I believe it is easy to define psychological illness, but it is very hard to find out a person's true feelings. This is the biggest challenge for one’s career. With that in mind, I work to understand all feelings and help all my clients learn to work through their difficulties to gradually become internally independent until they no longer need me.

At times life can become complicated by stress and adversity which is difficult to navigate on our own. My counselling philosophy is grounded in the knowledge that everyone has strengths and resources that can help them thrive and all of us need genuine caring relationships to live our best lives. Unfortunately, the challenges in our lives can cause us to lose sight of our strengths and strain key relationships leaving us feeling lost, confused and overwhelmed. At these times, counselling can help to explore these thoughts and feelings, identify meaningful solutions and restore hope and overall resilience.

Do you feel like no one understands what you're going through? Or stuck because you aren't sure who you are, what you want, or how to heal past wounds? You're not alone. I became a counsellor because I have also been there and understand how difficult it can be. I want to help. Whether you are feeling disconnected from yourself, isolated in relationships, or a larger sense of overwhelm and uncertainty in today's world, you deserve a safe space to be heard, supported, and understood. I self-identify as a queer woman and provide WPATH assessments and letters of readiness for gender-affirming care.

Sometimes we are living at our best, in harmony with the highs and lows of life. Other times we are stressed, uncertain, overwhelmed and need help with the balance. Relationships are impacted, connections may be strained between family members, past experiences can affect the ability to live in the present moment. Major life transitions can be difficult, and feelings may seem too big to manage.

Life can be hard. We all go through times when the daily tasks of living seem overwhelming and the joy we used to feel is gone. Many of us try to tough it out. We put on a good face to the outside world but inside we are in despair. If this sounds like you and you're ready to make a change, therapy can help. I work with adults and older teens who are suffering from a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, grief, stress, trauma and career issues.

Currently accepting clients on a waitlist only. You might be experiencing distress from challenging life events or you’re finding it hard to cope. Maybe communication in your relationships has broken down leaving you more alone than connected. Here’s where I can help. I take the time to hear your story, explore the roots of your struggles and how it’s affecting you, and explore how to help you navigate through it. Together, we then create a plan that fits you, in an attempt to help you regain a sense of hope, balance and vitality in life. Life is too short to be lived in significant distress, and sometimes we need a helping hand.

Welcome! My name is Tracy and I want to first and foremost acknowledge this important step you are taking for your mental well being. Admitting to yourself that you need outside support is not an easy task. I can appreciate how hard it must be to decide where you can go to confide in someone. I want you to know that building a relationship is of utmost importance to me. I want you to feel you have found a safe place where your innermost thoughts and feelings are heard without judgement.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Dartmouth?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Dartmouth specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
