About Me

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!!

Written by A.N. on Nov 19, 2021 after therapy with Tracy for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and grief

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!

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.

Written by A.D. on Jun 23, 2021 after therapy with Tracy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

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.

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.

Tracey is such an incredibly understanding person. There's no judgement, just healing. I've really valued my time with her.

Written by C.H. on Feb 08, 2021 after therapy with Tracy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

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.

Written by C. . on Jan 10, 2021 after therapy with Tracy for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

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.

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.

Written by T.O. on Sep 30, 2020 after therapy with Tracy for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

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.
