Hello, my name is Tracy Faust and I have been practicing Psychotherapy with those of nearly all ages for over twenty years. I earned my Master of Arts from Marquette University in Milwaukee, WI in 2000 and have been full time in the field ever since. For over thirteen of those years my experience was in a community mental health center, providing outpatient therapy, case management and advocacy to those residing in that area, as well as crisis services to all in need, whether residents or visitors. For over six years following that, I worked with children and families providing in-home psychotherapy, both individually with the identified client as well as family-based with parents and siblings. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you, and hope to hear from you soon!

Tracy has given me a lot of hope after my first session. Her exercises to challenge your current thought process work! I am grateful our paths crossed.
Tracy is absolutely amazing with me. She is patient with me and takes an interest in what’s going on with my life. I am very comfortable talking to her and feel at ease when discussing my past with her. Highly recommend her!!
I enjoy my sessions with Tracy Faust. Her approach allows me to process my thoughts and emotions in writing, which is helpful. When she reads my messages--which can be long!‐-she consistently responds with questions that prompt me to reflect further. Tracy's feedback doesn't push; she allows me to arrive at my own conclusions and then encourages me with positive affirmations. After our chats I feel more self-assured and positive that I'm moving in the right direction as I navigate the changes in my life.
Amazing therapist, can't imagine anyone else working with me! She knows the song of my soul and also knows when I need to be reminded of that! Thank you Tracy for all the patience you have with me!
Tracy is an amazing counselor. She always makes me feel heard, understood, and accepted. She helps me to work through issues and come up with realistic and effective solutions. She really fosters trust and care in the therapeutic relationship. ♾/10
Tracy has really helped me see things from a different perspective to help me guide myself in a more positive direction on any issue I am facing.
An amazing individual that helps me to understand certain feelings I endure through my anxiety episodes; as well as how to employ different techniques to cope when I experience an episode.
This is my first time meeting with a counselor but my experience with Tracy has been great. She listens, I feel she takes everything to heart, she is very respectful, and helps me in a way that helps me self realize things and how they may relate to me in more than one aspect. I messaged with two other counselors on the site before Tracy and neither of them worked for me at all but I am very happy with my communications with Tracy and hope to continue them in the upcoming future.
Tracy has been amazing & has taught me & given me strategies to use in the areas I’ve been struggling with. If I could afford it, I would stick with it.
I would absolutely recommend Tracy to anyone in need of help. She is very prompt to respond to postings and has made that entire process beneficial. I was a little unsure about communicating through text but she has helped by asking the right questions to further facilitate the conversation. I feel fortunate that we connected and am looking forward to where this process leads and building on to the knowledge she has help me acquire thus far.
An opening experiene that has enabled me to grow, share, and experience the benefits of what therapy has to offer. Tracy had such a diverse approach that enable (I'm sure, many other people a change to discuss anything), whist addressing, and listing to what challanges I may/or am facing and has exceptional understanding and experience in her profession. I hope to continue my service with her and BetterHelp.
I am very grateful for Tracy's support over the past couple weeks. She has helped me challenge my thinking and see things with more clarity.
I just started with Tracy, but I feel that she is very attentive when I am talking. I am trying to sort things out and I feel that she has helped.
Tracy will listen and ask to understand. Tracy responds in timely manner which makes me feel that she cares. Thank you Tracy!
Tracy is amazing, I am so thankful for her. She creates a safe space to be vulnerable and discuss the difficult things you’re dealing with. I appreciate her attention, feedback, and support. I’m not sure I would have had the courage to face or acknowledge things had it not been for her.
Best thing I ever did.
Tracy is great!
Tracy has been supportive and helpful. She is a great listener and asks just the right questions to get me thinking about ways that I can problem solve. I am grateful for our sessions each week.
Tracey is such an incredibly understanding person. There's no judgement, just healing. I've really valued my time with her.
She's responded to every question I've had and even checked in with me if I don't reply in a day or so. I went through 2 or 3 counselors before even getting a reply in general until Tracy showed up. She seems more involved and makes it easier to talk to.
Tracy is great in comparison to my previous counsellors, she listens and input where possible to help your journey. She is also not forceful...everything is to your own pace. I would highly recommend her.
I think Tracy does a wonderful job and gives her time and her talent to a very extensive capability and above and beyond what her job probably predefines for her. A counseling position is not simply being able to do everything for the person but allows for that simple reflection back to their patient in order to be able to give them the best steps forward that they can take to rectify things for themselves and she does that.
Always there to listen and help, truly world class
Thank you for being available I appreciate you !
She always listens to me about my concerns and provides amazing feedback
Understanding and wonderful to deal with
I had been in therapy for years before starting therapy with Tracy and I feel like over just these last few months of therapy with Tracy I have already made some major improvements in my self awareness and personal habits that I had an incredibly difficult time with in the past. She is supportive and understanding and also really knowledgeable. I feel like I can trust her with anything.
Tracy has helped me so much over this year. She has given me so many great thoughts and advice. I can’t thank her enough for being there throughout this year.
Very kind, listens when necessary, asks the right questions and helps guide you to the answers.
Tracy is a wonderfully trained and insightful therapy. From my first video call with her, I knew that I was dealing with a professional, and the way that she made me feel welcome and understood from the get-go made me look forward to each of our sessions. Tracy inspired me to ask critical questions about myself and what was happening around me, while also being there to reassure me and "pat me on the head" telling me I did a great job reflecting when I really needed it. As far as online/remote therapy goes, I can only hope to be matched with Tracy every single time.
Tracy has helped me immensely. She asks insightful questions and is very empathetic. I look forward to our weekly talks, even if I don’t always know what to say - she makes it easy to talk.
my counselor was very understanding and very patient. She helped a lot.
Tracy is highly respectful of many opinions and her focus on her client is admirable. She ensures she is discussing the needs of her client and looks for opportunities to challenge appropriately. Conversations are smooth and laced with some humour and intriguing thoughts.
She’s the best counselor,she’s very understanding also gives the best advice and messages you back in a timely fashion.
Tracy is great. Insightful but not pressuring, a good listener but also provides productive guidance.
She's very nice and very calming
Tracy is very caring, kind, smart, timely. Really appreciate talking with her.
When I was first paired with Tracy she was able to understand my issues and help. Through further contact that relationship only got better. She's extremely intelegent and helpful
This women is amazing! She has changed my whole perspective on therapy and counseling in general. She is very kind, thought provoking, and extremely easy to talk to. She really listens and makes sure all your needs have been met.
Tracy has been very helpful! Her quick responses and thought provoking questions have made me feel like I’m progressing. BetterHelp has been a great experience thus far, and Tracy is a the biggest part of that.
Tracy motivates me to deal with my problem and suggests possible solutions. She answers quickly and validates my feelings.
Tracy is super kind and supportive and I felt safe being vulnerable with her right from the beginning. I’m quite happy I was set up with her!
Tracy is supportive and knowledgeable, I am lucky to have her assigned to me.
Tracy has been very supportive and knowledgeable with my situation. She has provided useful feedback and support. She always responds quickly and follows up with me. Thanks Tracy!
Tracy has been very helpful and patient with helping me thus far, I’m not too far in yet but I’m feeling much more confident even just talking. Thanks, Tracy :)
Tracy has been very patient and understanding with me. Her tone is warm and approachable which makes talking to her easy and natural. The advice and resources she has shared have been helpful and applicable to my situation. Would highly recommend.
Tracy is a very understanding and empathetic counselor. She helps me look at a problem differently and makes me look at real issues. I feel like I can share anything with her and be met with understanding and kindness. Tracy has helped me through difficulty times more than I’m sure she realizes. Thanks Tracy!
I’m having a good experience working with Tracy so far. She makes it easy to talk and open up with her. She also makes sure to always respond to my long messages in a timely manner. She listens to me and my needs. She’s definitely helpful and caring.
