Hi! My name is Traci and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Addictions Counselor (CAC II) in the state of Colorado. I have been practicing therapy in a clinical setting for about 6 years. I have worked extensively with adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including: enhanced outpatient treatment, residential treatment, youth corrections, school-based counseling, and private practice.
I am passionate about helping people reach their goals and create the most fulfilling life possible. I am currently the treatment provider for our county’s Drug Court and DUI Court programs, as well as seeing individual clients through a non-profit counseling center. I am becoming involved in online therapy because I recognize the need to increase accessibility and affordability for many individuals.
Through a mindfulness-based approach, I create an empathetic and empowering atmosphere to facilitate the change process. In my practice, I utilize approaches and tools from several evidence based treatments including: Dialetical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Solution-Focused Therapy. My areas of specialty are addiction/substance use concerns, disordered eating, stress, anxiety, and self-esteem.
I believe that every person has their own unique needs & we will work together to discover the most effective path for you. If this sounds interesting or you have further questions, please contact me and we can discuss if we would be a good fit together!
I graduated from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. After ski bumming for a couple years, I went to the Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver for my Master’s Degree in Social Work. I secured a job in the mountains after graduation so I could follow my passion for helping people, but also adventuring outside daily.

I am very picky with people. I am very driven, ambitious, sensitive, and reserved. I’ve been working with Tracy for over 6 months. One of the reasons I picked Tracy off the bat is because she had a genuine smile and I could tell she herself was a generally happy person possessing equanimity. When I first started working with her I was dealing with an addiction to a bad habit. It’s hard to remember now because it’s not in my reality at all.
Tracy is perhaps the first person in my life I’ve been able to open up to all the way and be brutal honest with because she is so accepting and non-judgemental and kind.
I’ve had my ups and downs in the process, but when I look back, there are so many areas of improvement
With Tracy’s help, I take better care of myself now. I have real skills and habits that help me maintain my equanimity in life. I’ve improved my work performance because I’m more clear minded and better able to handle my work performance. I used to really fall to pieces during a fight in my relationship due to a lack of self-esteem, shoulder the blame, and think there was something wrong with me but I’m better able to be in my relationship now because I have a stronger sense of self and able to see what’s mine and what’s not.
Tracy is such a wonderful mix of natural compassion and steadiness. She is amazing at deep listening and asking the right questions to help me sort things out. She also have practical advice for skills and habits to create a better life with. I can tell through actions and words, she really cares without being attached.
I am daily grateful for finding Tracy & BetterHelp.
Tracy is really communicative and always follows up. She's a good listener and doesn't talk down to you when you share struggles.
Tracy is always responding in a timely matter and really helping me out. I’ve always had a hard time opening up to people but Tracy makes it really easy. I’ve done a ton of different counseling before but I feel like Tracy is the only counsellor who’s really helped me. I suffer with depression anxiety and PTSD.
I'm extremely happy with the counseling sessions and Traci in particular. It's helpful to gain insight and she often offers new tools to deal with old habits. She never gives up on me, even though I tend to give up on myself sometimes. A++ experience.
Traci is a warm, caring and compassionate person who will listen and give insightful feedback. She is always quick to respond and absolutely reliable for sessions. I highly recommend her to anyone working through a rough patch and looking for non-judgemental support and intelligent advice.
Tracy has been a valuable support these last months, providing me with lots of ideas to review mine and encourage new healthier, more loving and caring behaviour. She always responded super quickly to my messages and sent me great materials to read! I am very grateful and happy for my work with her!
Tracy has been wonderful in helping me find some normalcy in my life again. She has been great at helping me reframe my thought processes and is a great active listener who actually wants to see you thrive.
Tracy Bovino is a most helpful counsellor. She listens patiently and provides very thoughtful and valuable advice. She asks about how I am doing regularly, without fail. She is a most wonderful person and a great counsellor.
Tracy is really prompt and helpful. She’s very understanding and I feel very comfortable talking to her.
Tracy is a great counselor, something in between the type of psychologist that only listen and the ones talk more than the patient. Key aspects about her:
- She is sweet but at the same time realistic about your situation
- She gives you a conclusion in each session and a task to do next, what makes you feel you accomplished something each time
- The concept of self-care is an intrinsic part of her education, so she understand it at many levels and help you understanding it as well
So far my experience working with Tracy is very positive. I have been surprised with how well she has kept in touch and responded swiftly to my messages. We are in the early stages but so far messaging and live calls have been great. It's very reassuring to have a personable outlet when I am unable to attend physical sessions.
I strongly enjoy working with Tracy. She makes seeking help so much less intimidating, and actually kind of fun in a way. I truly enjoy bettering myself when I work with her, she always knows how to guide me in the right direction.
Tracy was a huge help and worked around my schedule and was extremely approachable and flexible. She helped and worked on any issues I needed help with.
Tracy is thoughtful, intelligent and super helpful. I love her counseling style and trust in her to help me deal with things that I struggle with. She’s been a huge help so far!
Tracy is incredibly helpful and seems incredibly competent in the field of mental health.
Tracy not only supports me and my feelings, but she has given me validation, which is different than just sympathizing and giving advice...sometimes a person really needs to hear that their actions and words really do matter...
