I believe in the great power of human connection. As one of my heroes, Brene Brown says, "we (humans) are wired for connection." I am a licensed clinical social worker in Virginia and have been providing clinical services in a variety of settings for over 20 years. I am a mother, a spouse, and a friend to many. My professional experience has taken me into schools, healthcare and mental health settings, and nonprofit organizations. I have worked with children and families, and individual adults. Of particular interest to me is the emotional journey of mothers through pre-conception, pregnancy, and early parenting, as this is often an equally joyful and challenging time for most women. I am a trained and experienced pregnancy and postpartum counselor, and also partner with individual adults struggling with anxiety and/or depression or life transitions. My style is person-centered and solution-focused, seeing myself as much as a partner as a counselor. I look forward to partnering with you to bring out your strengths and support you in discovering an even better YOU!

I have been working with Tracey for only a few weeks and she seems to really care about my well-being and staying focused on how we can work through my issues.
I was able to develop an honest, genuine connection with Tracey as we worked on some of the issues that caused stress, sadness and anxiety in my life. She is very natural, supportive, analytic but also practical in her approach. Working with her helped me to stay present and be compassionate with myself.
Tracey has been very supportive in my times of need and helping me with just not getting through the hard parts but she has also help me build the tools and coping skills to grow and better myself. She has been flexible and open minded in my experience with her and has been a large help in my life.
Excellent and compassionate!
Tracey has helped me understand myself better, in the last few weeks. I was going through a lot of change in life, and had constant mood swings. Tracey was very attentive and listened to my outpourings and helped me analyze the situation better. She gave new perspectives to my bad experiences in teenage life and helped me understand it better. 4 weeks of counseling helped me relax and enjoy life in a better way.
Tracey has been a huge help. I was struggling more than usual since I had the baby, and I just couldn't find the underlying reasons on my own. She was able to break it down and get to the heart of the matter for me. There were several things going on that I needed to be aware of and shift my thinking around. I'm beyond grateful for her help.
Tracey has been a great ear to listen to my outpourings for the last several weeks during a time that has seen me have high anxiety and feelings of sadness seizing up my daily life at times. However with her insight, and outside resources she has recommended, the majority of these feelings have been calmed, and I feel much more at peace now than before I reached out for assistance.
