About me

Hi, I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor (CAADC) in Pennsylvania with 35 years of professional work experience.

I have worked extensively with helping clients and their families, with issues around chemical use disorders, behavioral addictions, personality disorders and mental health issues. I tend toward having a more directive style of therapy but I also have experience with non directive styles as well.

I am certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and have 16 years experience working with Exposure Therapy to resolve trauma reactions that disrupt healthy living and contribute to depression and anxiety.

I enjoy working with couples and families to explore and resolve family dynamics, parenting and relationship issues that disrupt connections needed for unity and stability. The goal is to help clients learn and utilize tools to maintain healthy, strong relationships, long after therapy is concluded.

I have also worked extensively with clients, both children and adults, around issues of sexual dysfunction, sexual abuse and sexual compulsivity.

Most of my career I have worked with marginalized communities. I endeavor to increase my understanding of religions, human drives and cultures so that I might be able to serve my clients with a broader understanding.

I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process . I look forward to working with you.

Tracey listens to where the session needs to go. She loops back to the work we are working on in insightful ways. I feel like I have a new perspective on things and going through the things I have been avoiding. We laugh, cry and talk through the therapy session. I am very happy Tracey is my therapist.

Tracey has kept me together through one of the darkest times of my life thus far. Her openness, honesty, and humor create a casual atmosphere in our virtual space, which makes me comfortable enough to talk about anything I need to bring up. I honestly don't know where I'd be right now without her.
