I practice from a psychodynamic and family systems perspective while trained to integrate other modalities as needed.
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist in private practice for over 25 years. I have fulfilled licensing and educational requirements in two states. My training is with adults across the life span and couples. Previous experience includes university counseling centers and hospital medical consult. It is within our early experiences that we learn trust, acceptance and a sense of self. Each individual learns a unique attachment style based on these early relationships, loves and losses. Therapy provides a safe environment to change patterns, heal our past and present struggles while increasing personal insight, trust and resiliency.

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by. Let me introduce myself. I'm Tracey. I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in gender and sexuality. Whether you're newly wrestling with issues around identity or have been out for a million years and need a safe space with a therapist who "gets it", you're in the right place. As a queer therapist I understand the nuances of gender and sexuality and how they relate to who we are and how we relate and connect with those around us.

I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over twenty five years. I have devoted my life to practicing what I preach. Over the course of a successful professional career, and raising a daughter and a son to adulthood, I have had to battle the demons of anger, self-doubt and personal inadequacy that plague my clients. I have learned from my many mistakes, not just from theory, how to feel and act like an adult, how to forgive myself and others, and most importantly, how not to take every little thing personally.

Young Adults: It's often expected from family , society and even from yourself that you have it all figured out.
Now is the time to focus on growth, healing, purpose and direction in your life. Therapy is a powerful tool for adolescents and young adults when you encounter challenges like anxiety, depression, trauma, anger, family issues, substance use, poor self-esteem, relationship issues, + loss. Therapy is an opportunity to find comfort, to build strength and to overcome. For adolescent clients: Life is complicated and the bottom line is that your life can be difficult to navigate. I’m well aware that most young people aren’t thrilled about the idea of going to therapy, know that I am ready to hear you, to respect you and to value you.

My extensive clinical training includes working with children, teenagers, and adults with anxiety, depression, and family /childhood trauma.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I have extensive experience working with children, teens, and adults providing individual, couples, group, and family therapy to those that are dealing with depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, PTSD, grief, divorce, identity issues, parenting, workplace challenges, and many other social and emotional challenges.
The journey of life can be a challenging one. We are often faced with situations and events that challenge us. Sometimes we feel alone, confused, uncertain, or afraid. We seek comfort and understanding. We want change, but are not sure how or what steps to take. We seek safety, security, and purpose. I will help you navigate through life challenges and help you gently face your deepest struggles.

I use both individual and/or family therapy sessions.
I believe that the experience a person has while participating in therapy relies greatly on the relationship between the client and therapist. It is my job not to tell you what to do or to give you specific answers, but to assist you in arriving at your own decisions and solutions. I encourage open communication and I feel that therapy is only successful when feedback is given and received on both ends of the relationship. I feel that every person is an individual and that this means that therapy can look different from one client to the next.

I provide individual, couples, and family therapy .
Maybe you're stuck or confused, or maybe feeling a little lost in this chaotic tornado called life. No one gave us a handbook on how to live or exist, we were just brought into this world to figure it out and sometimes told to not fail along the way. We have all developed distorted ways of how things are "supposed" to be, and how we are supposed to be but no map on how to get there. I understand and I want to help. Together we can navigate the storm and look beyond the "shoulds" and create the "I want tos."

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family /relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

Mental health challenges are due to the aftereffects of traumatic experiences. Trauma can place a strain on your family , work, relationships, and even cause issues with self-worth. I specialize in trauma therapy along with treating personality disorders, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, and addiction. All these disorders can look different from person to person, and that is where our therapeutic journey of empowerment and self-exploration begins. I concentrate on creating a safe space of growth and self-discovery through unconditional positive regard, emotional regulation, and guided activities.

Wherever we are in our journey, there seems to be the many problems and struggles we faced, and often, they seem unbearable and with no clear solutions. These are the knots of our life, be it from violence, disasters, discord in our family , knots of drugs and alcoholism, loneliness, sickness, grief, or just feeling stuck, etc. - these are knots that suffocate us and prevent us from living our life to the fullest, our best self. But I want to tell you that there is hope and that hope is always alive.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
