About Me

Welcome and thank you for checking out my profile-I truly believe the strongest people are those who ask for help when they need it. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Pennsylvania and have over ten years experience working with the college aged population on a variety of presenting concerns. I believe strongly in meeting a client where they are and working through sessions by helping clients examine their world around them in a way that allows them to function at their best. My approach is client centered, non-judgmental and focused on helping to examine and/or challenge patterns of thinking that can contribute to stress and anxiety. Some areas of focus I work with often include family/intimate relationships, panic disorders, depression, anxiety, ADHD to name a few. I would love the opportunity to meet and work with you focusing on progress, not perfection in all areas of a person's life.

Written by E.M. on Jun 16, 2021 after counseling with Traci for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

With only three sessions down so far, I have felt such a strong connection with Traci. In the limited time we've had to get to know one another, I feel like she understands me so much. She takes the time to listen to my problems and responds to them with a deep understanding of the human psyche and emotions. Ever after our first session, I felt like she offered great insight and it made me trust her advice. I recommend Traci and BetterHelp for anyone looking for someone to talk to who they can trust and who will listen and understand them completely, without judgement.

Traci is extremely respectful and makes sure I understand she is there to help, not judge. She’s very patient as I try to articulate myself and share my problems with her and she is always present. Not in a superficial way, but it a caring way. She makes it comfortable to speak with her and I really appreciate the time I get to spend with her because I always feel more well equipped to handle my problems afterwards.

So far in my sessions with Traci, she has done a great job of treating me with respect. Her experience working with Adult ADHD as well as general anxiety management has given me confidence and made me realize I’m not alone in the things I struggle with. Her demeanor is both professional and friendly, and definitely is what I was hoping for from my first therapist.
