My goal is to guide my clients to be their genuine selves, to feeling whole and complete. Helping my clients reach their fullest potential is the most rewarding feeling. The journey to being who we are rather than who others would like us to be, behaving in a manner that exemplifies self-love, self-worth, and confidence is a daily task that requires re-committing each day. The wounds of yesterday must be healed in order to move forward. I believe the client determines the direction and pace to which we accomplish this knowing all the while, self-discovery and actualization is never ending.

My focus is on working with youth and adults who carry unique emotional and psychological sensitivities. My style, that embodies more of humanistic and holistic approaches, has proven to be very effective with individuals who are connected to spiritual or creative energies; individuals such as artists, healers and LGBTQ, who struggle with self acceptance, self esteem, anxiety and depression. My aim is to help you find and acknowledge all parts of yourself, heal and embrace them all, in order to create a complete and wholesome you.

I commend you for reaching out to the possibilities therapy may offer. Change begins in this moment. Life can feel unmanageable. We experience the joys and challenges of relationships. The relationship may be with ourselves: inner struggles, uncertain goals, questioned values, addictive tendencies and confusion as to why we "do what we do". The relationship may be with another. The relationship may call upon us to clarify our expectations, to establish personal boundaries, to develop flexibility, to reflect on co-dependence, to improve our communication style and to open ourselves to change.

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. It can affect how you feel, think, and behave. It can affect your daily life activities, sleep, social life, appetite, and even cause physical problems. There are many possible causes of depression, including genetic vulnerability, stressful life events, and faulty mood regulation by the brain. I am here to help with all of that.

I work with clients who have social anxiety, shyness, and feel awkward and out of place. They want to feel better about themselves and their circumstances. They may have been through a difficult childhood and trauma and abuse. They are motivated to get better and want to speak to someone who is nonjudgmental and compassionate. Clients have opened up to me about their deepest traumas and secrets that they have not shared with anyone else. I feel honored to be part of my client's journey and help them to find solutions. I have a strong client centered approach blended with a CBT intervention based approach.

Being sensitive in this world isn't easy. If you identify as a healer or a highly sensitive/empathetic person, you may find yourself trying to use your gifts to "save" others. You may find that people easily open up to you. You may also find that a lot of your dating life has been based on healing, changing, and helping others. It leaves little room for your needs, leading to dysfunctional relationships. When you continuously have projects instead of partners you might be worried your "picker" is broken. It's not broken. It's just not your job to heal everyone. It's time to find a relationships based on reciprocity.

Before I was a therapist I was a client struggling with addiction, PTSD, and other issues as well. My journey of healing led me to becoming a therapist to help others heal as well. My clients find me to be compassionate, understanding, non-judgmental and informative. I tend to work intuitively, while using my training and experience as a guide. I am focused on helping my clients navigate their own healing journey as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

I am accepting new clients! I have had the privilege of working with a diverse set of clients with a wide range of backgrounds and needs. I offer a supportive space that counters the normativity within this culture that often is oppressive to people based on their identities. I recognize that what healing journey one person, relationship or family may need may be different than another and help to support you on that journey. In addition to being neurodivergent and transgender myself, I have also supported folks who are neurodivergent, queer and/or plural.

Hi there! Welcome to one more step in your search for the life you want. Therapy is one way to increase joy, be reminded of whats wonderful about yourself, and overcome the barriers that have blocked you in the past. It also gives you the tools to continue that process. Collaboratively we strengthen your sense of worth so that you have the energy and motivation to work toward your personal goals. Increasing self-compassion and awareness frees an individual from the habits or ruts we all tend to dip into in life.

I have been in private practice for 30 years, providing psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy to adolescents and adults. Each person is unique and I strive to listen carefully to you and your life history. I create a treatment plan that is unique to you. My approach addresses the underlying, mostly unconscious beliefs, emotions, and expectations that create problems in life. This approach is appropriate for many different issues as it addresses the deep causes of difficulties. The changes you make in psychoanalytic psychotherapy are deep and enduring and eliminates the need for symptoms as coping strategies.

Have you survived a trauma but can't shake the effects of it? Do you want help reclaiming your thoughts, feelings and relationships? I specialize in treating people who have experienced traumatic events such as sexual assault, sudden loss, childhood abuse or divorce. I work with my clients to treat common trauma symptoms such as depression, anxiety, issues with sexuality, and chronic pain. Because trauma affects the body, I combine traditional psychotherapy with a somatic focus to bring relief to the whole self. Ultimately, we work together to alleviate distress and create a life you love.

Dissociative Disorders (DID) Therapists

How does therapy for dissociative disorders work?

Dissociation may be triggered by stress or other upsetting circumstances, and therapy can address the traumatic events at the core of an individual’s dissociation. Understanding why a person may dissociate can help the therapist and the individual come up with alternative methods of coping. A person with a dissociative disorder may get stuck on negative thinking, for example, and treatment like cognitive behavioral therapy is a gold standard for breaking such thinking. And dialectical behavior therapy, for example, can help a person manage their anguish through better emotion regulation.

Which therapies are best for dissociative disorders?

Specific approaches used by professionals include cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavior, psychodynamic, schema therapies, among others. Cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavior therapies are two widely used therapies that can help individuals with painful memories and past traumas. These therapies work to integrate an individual's different identities into one person.

Are there specific medications for dissociation?

There are no specific medications prescribed for dissociative disorders. However, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and/or panic often co-occur in dissociative disorders. A psychiatrist may prescribe medications for any accompanying symptom—which may include antipsychotics like aripiprazole, antidepressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or anti-anxiety drugs like benzodiazepines.

How often and how long are therapy sessions?

Like any type of therapy, sessions depend on the individual. Patients may see improvement within 15 to 20 sessions, at an average of 50 minutes per session, others may opt for 20 to 30 sessions over, perhaps, a six-month period. There are still other patients, especially those who have co-occurring conditions like depression and anxiety, who may need to continue sessions for up to 12 to 18 months.
