After not having good luck with previous therapists, I almost decided to give up my attempts at therapy. Dr. Tracy changed my outlook on therapy in a very good way.

I feel very comfortable talking to her and trust in her expertise in her field.

Dr. Thiem is kind and caring. We have phone session and just listening to her voice makes me feel reassured. I feel like I'm on the road to better health with Dr. Thiem.
The first time I spoke to Dr. Thiem I was panicking over an upcoming exam. The way she not only de-escalated me, but helped me pinpoint new and specific studying techniques was life-saving! Because of her simple yet extraordinarily effective studying tips I found myself looking forward to studying. It even became fun to study, which is something I’ve always dreaded. This being said as a scholar with a master degree from a private university.
Dr. Thiem was super helpful, attentive and professional! I’d recommend her to my family and friends without hesitation in both online and offline world!
Dr Thiem consistently tunes into how I am doing, not just how I say I am doing. She is extremely perceptive and will help steer you back on course.

Dr. Thiem has been extremely helpful for me. Her counseling skills are second to none and she really listens and gives Honest real feedback. I have only been seeing her for a short time but she has already lead me to make so much progress in the areas of life that I need. This is the first time in my life I have truly made improvements in my mental health. She is amazing.
Very supportive of my anxiety and trauma. She wants to dive deeper and help me become a better person for my sake but when it comes to my level of truama I just need time. I appreciate her for being there for me and helping patiently.

I look forward to our sessions and to continue my process to better mental and emotional health. I have hope I can be happy again.
Dr. Tracy Thiem, a great therapist who listens to everything and tries everything she knows over her many years of her job to help. Its been a very unique experience and certainly something I really needed in my life. If anyone is looking for someone who not only cares but provides a new point of view and will help you through anything at all that you are going through I would give this doctor a vote of confidence.
Dr. Tracy is wonderful. I feel like I am already making progress. She is caring and experienced, and also very flexible and intuitive. I am grateful to be able to work with her.
I have only had a few sessions with Dr. Thiem but from the start I felt and ease and connection with her. I am used to traditional therapy in an office so I was worried about not having that designated space. But within a few weeks I have felt comfortable, at ease, and excited for all of my appointments. I'm shocked that I was able to find a counselor I liked so quickly on this platform!
I'm only about a month into my sessions with Dr. Thiem, yet the tools she has provided and how she has gone about listening and asking me questions has helped me tremendously. I had my reservations about counseling, but she has been fantastic.
We have only had one session, but Dr. Thiem seems very insightful and compassionate.
