Tracy Bailey

(MA, LPC)

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.

Tracy is absolutely amazing. She has helped me so much over the past couple of months and has helped me completely transform my life. I've always been afraid to start therapy, but she has made this process easy and accessible. She truly cares for her clients, and she is incredibly supportive. I don't know where I would be without her.

Tracy is an extremely caring and supportive counselor. I’ve had counselors before where I could drop off the face of the earth and they wouldn’t notice, but Tracy truly cares and wants to know how you are doing and wants to help. I really appreciate her knowledge and guidance, and highly recommend counseling with her.

Very helpful and compassionate. Made sure to check in and clarify that I was getting what I needed to out of this. Felt like I could always share and not be judged or diminished. Very happy with the help.

Tracy has been a great support over the last few months and has been helping me through difficult dates such as anniversaries and other such things. My anxiety has improved immensely and I feel better equipped now to deal with future challenges.

Tracy is really nice and helps you to untangle your own issues from an outsiders nonbias, not tangled in the emotions of it view. It's refreshing! Her tips are really great and she has a way of presenting them in a non forceful way.

Tracy has been so helpful in my divorce. She listens well. She is caring, but tells me the hard truths when I need to hear them. Thank you, Tracy!

Tracy asks me appropriate questions to find the worksheets/exercises and info that will help me communicate better. When she thinks something might not help me as much, she will give ideas for a different approach. She lets me know we can always go back to the other approach. She wants me let her know when I have completed one exercise and am ready for another one. And, she wants to know if it was helpful. :) She is EXCELLENT! Even with the small areas that aren't as significant, she will find the right things to help me. I am very happy with my progress and my way of thinking because of her.
THANK YOU TRACY!!!

Tracy is very supportive and caring. I talked with a few counselors on here and did not feel that they were a good fit until I was matched with Tracy. It is not just a job for her, she truly cares.

Tracy has been very helpful as a sounding board for my emotions going through a divorce after 30 years of a bad marriage. She has helped me find ways to deal with emotions and is good at listening and asking probing questions.

I'm loving my experience with Tracy so far. She is patient, gentle, and intentional with our building relationship, and I'm grateful to be connected! She's helping me build the career I've always wanted for myself, and I know that this bonding will lead to feeling more comfortable in the deeper work too.

Amazing Christian councilor who’s extremely friendly and attentive. She has helped me see the true value in having a councilor, with intelligent insight, and memory for my specific life details. I look forward to working with Tracy every phone call we have. 10 out of 10 would recommend her services.
