Hi, I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) and a certified advanced alcohol and drug counselor (CAADC) in Pennsylvania with 33 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 has an approach that really seems to work for me. I feel like she really understood me right away and recognized the things I needed some help with. I like the way she explains things. I love the way she poses questions to me to make me think. I've only had a couple of visits so far but I've given rave reviews to my friends and family about those couple experiences. Looking forward to continuing!

Tracey York is the smartest, most insightful therapist I've ever had the blessing to be connected with. I almost have no words for how much she had helped me organize my feelings, emotions, issues, etc. She has helped me grow in months... which would have otherwise taken years... if ever. I am forever appreciative for her.
