She can assist the client in developing and strengthening these skills needed to effectively manage their lives.

“I find it rewarding seeing my clients begin to gain trust, not only in the therapeutic relationship, but also in themselves. I do not take an expert approach with my client, but rather a partnership in working together so the client finds their confidence to move life in the direction desired,” shares Tracey.

“I find cognitive behavioral therapy useful for clients as it encourages awareness of automatic thoughts and how they can impact emotions and behaviors. I have also been trained in Internal Family Systems Model of therapy – effective in identifying past traumas, witness/validating these experiences, and unburdening them from the client.   I strive to provide a safe, therapeutic environment to promote self-expression, self-healing, and growth towards self-actualization for each of my clients,” she concludes.
