Welcome to Betterhelp. I am pleased you are taking this time in your life to seek self care and support. I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in California with over 20 years of experience working as a counselor in both nonprofit and public school settings. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, life transition and career challenges.
My primary objective in therapy is to develop a trusting and warm connection. Once that foundation of trust and respect is established, the likelihood and potential for you to overcome your barriers toward stability and well-being is high. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client-centered and psychodynamic. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Traci is a kind, thoughtful person. She asks great questions to get at the heart of what you need to talk about, and has a warm energy that makes me feel safe. She is also very patient, and good at listening. I appreciate her encouragement and feel very heard and helped by her.
