About me

Hi, my name is Tracy Bailey and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Dakota. I have had National Counselor Certification and received my Master of Arts for Mental Health Counseling from Colorado Christian University. I hold certificates in Suicide Prevention, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, And Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Prior to becoming a counselor, I was a high school special education teacher.

I utilize a person-centered approach and believe the relationship between the counselor and client are a significant factor for client success. I believe therapy should be client-driven and work with the client to develop appropriate goals and make adjustments when needed. In addition to CBT and DBT, I specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Christian Counseling.

I have experience working with adolescents, adults, and families. I specialize in working with individuals and families of individuals with disabilities, chronic conditions, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, anger management, and unexpected changes in life.

I'm still getting to know Tracey, we haven't been meeting that long. I'm impressed with the skill sets she has, and am so glad she provides a Christian perspective.
She is patient and encouraging with me.

Tracy has been so helpful with her feedback about my issues. She has suggested helpful reading and meditation. But mostly I know she listens to my concerns and worries and gives me thoughtful, relevant feedback.

Tracy has helped me deal with the family issues that come with a parent’s cognitive decline and multiple siblings giving advice without being the one doing the caretaking. It’s been quite a slog through the emotional outbursts. She has kept me in control of myself so no one has been injured in this process.
