With expertise in multiple evidence-based practices (CBT, DBT , ACT, psychodynamic, relational, mindfulness-based, and existential), I tailor my approach to that most helpful for you.
Hello and Welcome. I have over a decade of practice in individual, adolescent, and couples therapy. I specialize in treating mood or anxiety difficulties, trauma, childhood trauma, chronic pain and illnesses, relational difficulties, life stressors, or life and identity transitions. My passion is to help you breathe freely; experiencing relief, resilience, self-compassion, and increased emotional freedom. We often learn strategies through life to keep us safe, but those strategies may hold us back in our present. It is in our relationships that we learned these strategies; it is through a therapeutic relationship that we heal.

I use evidence based approaches (EFT, DBT , CBT, ACT, and Psychodynamic) from a relational, developmental, and attachment-based perspective.
I believe symptoms are often the body’s way of communicating with us when something's off. Learning to recognize our symptoms as messages to listen to, we start making sense of the chaos, and feel less out of control. I’m committed to helping you get that kind of relief and clarity, so that it becomes easier to explore the roots of what gets you stuck. The therapy I offer is experiential and relational, providing the context to name what needs to heal, process what's overwhelming, build psychological skills and confidence, grow in compassion, strengthen relationships, and find a path forward with greater freedom, meaning, and hope.

I've been practicing DBT for 10 years with people of varying backgrounds and needs.
Are you experiencing a very challenging time in your life? Does it feel like you can't see your way back to you? Is it hard to recognize who you are from the way you feel? I can be there for you when it seems like the darkest, most difficult time in life. Many of my clients have told me that I am mothering and nurturing as a therapist. I approach therapy from a caring and compassionate perspective, more so after I became a mother of three children. Together we can use DBT techniques to help you reconnect with the things that are important to you and help you get back to being the person you want to be with the life you want to live.

I use the framework of CBT, ERP, and DBT as I’ve seen them work well for my clients and their effectiveness is heavily supported by research.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and for some it is harder to manage than others. If you are struggling emotionally, feeling down, constantly on edge, increasingly fearful or irritable, reach out for help. Stress is easier to manage with proper tools and support. Connecting with a therapist who you can trust and feel comfortable with is important. I was born and raised in Poland and have lived in San Diego since 2002. I got my BA in Psychology and MSW degrees at SDSU. I have 10 years of experience working in mental health, including individual, couples, and group therapy.

Hi! I'm Tracy! I specialize in working with adults who experience depression, a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest.

I’m trained in popular therapies such as CBT, DBT , and EMDR, and we’ll tailor therapy to meet your needs.
Many women feel like they’ll never be good enough. Often we face external pressures and obstacles, but we have just as many critics coming from within. Old experiences, and the stories we tell ourselves about them, make us feel even more inadequate. You might find yourself worrying that you’ll fail, disappoint people, or that efforts towards your goals will be a waste of time. Such thoughts often stem from anxiety, stress, or trauma. I work with women, from college age through retirement, who want to create a new story as they heal from the past, feel less stressed, and gain more confidence.
