About me

Welcome! You will already know from what you have read on Better Help that I am a licensed professional with a graduate degree. I maintain a full time private practice and I cherish the work that I do. When you work with me..... I'll help you feel at ease quickly, so that we can get those issues that brought you here resolved. I focus on providing you the expert help you deserve, with a warm and caring approach that takes into account who you are as a person.....not just what problems you are having. It's counseling with a heart :)

I've been working in this field for almost 25 years! I've also raised 4 children. They have definitely taught me about my limits! Because I have raised four children, all with various needs and goals - I think I'm pretty cued into the unique pressures of what it means to be a millennial or a teen these days.

You could say I've been around the block a could say I'm a realist.....and I notice my clients enjoy my sense of whatever it is that brings you here you can rest assured that what you will find is NOT judgment and criticism.....but understanding, connection and hope.

It doesn't matter what problems you are experiencing (stress, emotional challenges, relationships, sexual issues, mental health problems, career, parenting, addictions).....we will work together as a team on solutions. After so many years of providing folks with therapy, I've learned a wide array of approaches. ( I'm trained in CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, Trauma Therapy, Family Therapy, Couples name but a few). Most of all you will find that whatever approach we use, you'll feel safe as you share your troubles.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Traci E Ball. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I started working with Traci around 3 years ago - I had just moved to a different country for my Master's, and I was really struggling with symptoms of PTSD from a sexual assault I had experienced in college the year before. In these past 3 years of working together, Traci has truly changed my life. Together, we were able to work through my PTSD, and I have come to a place of healing and new life. Additionally, Traci has been a constant support and resource in terms of my OCD and anxiety, which I have been diagnosed with for many years now. Not only has Traci provided psychological healing, but a sense of spiritual healing as well, which has been key in my recovery. I cannot thank Traci enough for her support, her insight, her friendship, and her incredible guidance over these years.

Traci has changed my life. I've gone from feeling constantly overwhelmed by suicidal and homicidal thought patterns to mastering my days and feeling quite confident in my abilities to deal with my trauma. She's such a wonderful support and witness.

Traci has been my rock. I don’t know how I would have gotten through the past few months without her. I am so grateful to have her and her expertise. I am looking forward to where I will be in the future with Traci’s guidance supporting me.

I just wanted to say how brilliant Traci was helping me with my issues. I have feared taking antidepressants for over a decade but after having one session with Traci i got on them and have stayed on them. She was a pleasure to work with and was very sympathetic and had a solution to every problem!

Literally the best therapist I've ever had.

I would recommend her a thousand times over. I went through five counselors on better help and finding her was a blessing
