I started as a therapist because I wanted to use the many experiences I have had in life to help others navigate their own. I am currently licensed in Wisconsin. In 2006, I earned a master's degree in criminal justice. Then, in 2013, I went back to school to get a master's degree in counseling. My client base consists of those who have experienced trauma, those who are survivors of domestic violence, and those with anxiety, depression, adjustment and relationship concerns, and addiction. I have worked with the homeless, the addicted, the abused, the abuser, the clergy, the parent, and countless others. The approaches I use in therapy depend on the person I am working with and the issues they are struggling with. Some issues need a more cognitive response, some a somatic-based response, and other a Biblical response. Still, others need a behavioral response, and others a solution-focused response. I think the reason I can help is because I have a wide array of life experiences, combined with a solid education, and laid back demeanor. My current clients often comment on how relaxed and easy to talk to I am; this is something I pride myself on. I also work hard to get to know my clients and their stories. I am in constant study to make sure I am informed and equipped to help.

Hello, my name is Tracy Faust and I have been practicing Psychotherapy with those of nearly all ages for over twenty years. I earned my Master of Arts from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI in 2000 and have been full time in the field ever since. For over thirteen of those years my experience was in a community mental health center, providing outpatient therapy, case management and advocacy to those residing in that area, as well as crisis services to all in need, whether residents or visitors. For over six years following that, I worked with children and families providing in-home psychotherapy, both individually with the identified client as well as family-based with parents and siblings. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you, and hope to hear from you soon!

Hello! If you are here to explore BetterHelp, you are probably looking for support. I'm glad you're here. I know it is important to feel comfortable and to be able to trust your counselor, especially when you're working through personal or difficult things. Let me tell you a bit about myself to help you decide if we will be a good fit. I have been providing counseling for over 10 years as a social worker, and have enjoyed working with many different people in a variety of situations. Some of the people I have worked with have had challenges that they never thought they could handle or work through. Typical feedback I get from my clients is that I am approachable, trustworthy, compassionate and direct in my counseling. I feel I have the ability to get a sense of where you are in your life, your struggles and where you want to end up. It's a challenging world out there and if you work with me, I want you to feel that you can trust me as I support you in this process, because feeling emotionally safe is highly important. I have daytime, evening and weekend appointment availability. We can interact over video, chat or email, depending on your preference. On the days when I don't have appointments with you, I do check my messages regularly. I feel that maintaining a strong connection through the therapy process is also highly important. If you feel that we would be a good fit in counseling, I encourage you to schedule an appointment. It would be an honor to work with you through this time in your life and I hope you feel empowered by taking this first step.

Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Hilbert area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hilbert therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Hilbert due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Hilbert may not take health insurance, some in the state of Wisconsin may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Wisconsin you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Hilbert, Wisconsin working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Hilbert above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

You can also try a Hilbert therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Hilbert therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in WI, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Hilbert counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Hilbert licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Hilbert, Wisconsin can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Hilbert has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
