About Me

Hi . My name is Traci Kent and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Idaho. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work at Utah State University in Logan, Utah and my Master of Social Work at The University of Northern Iowa, in Cedar Falls, Iowa. I have been practicing for thirteen years working primarily with individuals and couples, focusing on issues such as addictions, family struggles, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, as well as life changes.

I believe in a strengths-based approach utilizing cognitive behavioral, Motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy as well as psycho-education and EMDR techniques. Making the choice to seek counseling is a difficult one and I am happy you have decided to reach out. The first order of business is for us to develop a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship so you feel confident to express yourself in a safe and supportive environment. I believe our work is based on a team approach where we work together to achieve your desired goals. Once we identify your desired goals I can provide tools to help you achieve those goals. I look forward to hearing from you

Reviews

Written by C.O. on Sep 27, 2020 after counseling with Traci for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Traci is one of only a couple people I trust. She has given me guidance when I need it, trust to figure it out for myself when I need it...basically she is amazing and I don't know if I would be managing my life the way that I am (in a healthy way) without her help. She is phenomenal.
