I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 30 years of experience in private practice, outpatient counseling centers, and medical institutions. I am down to earth, easy going, and have a good sense of humor. My counseling style is warm, supportive, non judgmental, and interactive. I believe in starting where you are; not where anyone thinks you should be. I treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I'm not a fan of stigmatizing labels or pathologizing people. You are not broken. We all have our struggles and obstacles; I want to help you build on your strengths.
I have extensive experience working with children, adults, adolescents, couples and families. I specialize in trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, chronic illness, Lyme Disease, Military issues, PTSD, and more. I have significant experience with relationship issues, family issues, ADHD, PANDAS, sexual abuse, domestic violence, Asperger's, parenting, life transitions, blended families, and more. I have worked extensively with the LGBTQ community and have experience with the many struggles and obstacles that can arise .
I am a Christian who works well with people from every walk of life, regardless of spiritual beliefs. If you are seeking Christian counseling, I am happy to provide that. If you prefer not to bring faith or spirituality into our work, that is absolutely fine as well. Christian counseling is provided upon request; otherwise our work together will not involve faith or religion. My personal views will in no way affect our work together. I am nonjudgmental and work effectively with people no matter what their beliefs are!
Wherever you are in your journey, I am here to be with you in that place and be sensitive to your needs and concerns. I will provide you with a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings, and sort through whatever is on your mind. Together we will look at the obstacles you are facing, and work at breaking them down. We will maximize your strengths, and help you to put forth the best version of yourself.
I'm so looking forward to meeting you and getting started!

Tracy, she is an amazing counselor! It’s been 3 weeks with her and is so helpful in all manner.
I strongly recommend her if you need guidance.
Tracy has a passion for helping people. She talks to me like I'm a human being, not like I'm some problem to be fixed. She empowers me to make better decisions, to practice healthy skills, and to take charge of my life. I've never felt more secure in opening up, with trying new therapeutic skills, or even just taking a suggestion to heart, than with Tracy.
I appreciate your comments, questions, and suggestions; they are really helping me think about things and explore the challenges that I am having. Already I feel that I am being supported and that someone out there cares about what I'm going through and truly wants to help me.
Tracy is awesome! I've worked with other counselors with BetterHelp, some good - some awful. She's amazing! Very responsive, and her responses are thoughtful, compassionate and supportive.

Tracy is very good and listens to my concerns.
Tracy is an awesome counselor. I like that she takes the time to ask you questions and get to know more about you. She is very caring and she really goes in depth about what is going on with you to help you! I have tried several counselors in person and I have not make deep connections with them. This is the first counselor I've had in years that has been able to make me feel valued and really help me reach solutions!
Tracy is very kind and intelligent and I have enjoyed her thoughts and guidance!
Tracy is caring and compassionate. She truly listens and provides support no matter what sort of situation you are in or have come from. As someone who isn't religious, I was wary when I read that she offers Christian counseling and the testimonials from the people who praised her for it, but she keeps everything firmly in the realm of the secular if you ask. I would recommend Tracy to anyone who needs help.
Tracy is fantastic! She's empathetic and knowledgeable and humorous when necessary. She does have a lot of practical techniques and, if something doesn't work, she has more to try. Her lovely relaxed quality is very soothing. I'm so glad I met her!
Tracy is so helpful and I'm so glad I have her in my life!
Subscribing to BetterHelp and being paired with Tracy was such a good thing! Tracy has been a great support, and I really appreciate the flexibility this format allows for. Thank you, Tracy!
Tracy is a great Joy to work with. As a fellow Christian, she bases everything Biblical, which is something I strongle desire.
She has been greatly encouraging, and very patient with me as I short out my thoughts.
I really appreciate Tracy because she reassures you that what you're going through is normal and is able to alleviate my anxieties. She also usually provides either a quote or an exercise that can help in your circumstance. She is an excellent counselor thus far!
Tracy has been a life line and a guide through some very difficult storms of life, both past and presently. She helps me recognise my responses, readjust my thinking and praises overcoming challenges. Always supportive and with a unique insight into how we as humans cope and deal with what is thrown in our way, Tracy is a kind and constant source of support and strength.
Tracy is great listening ear and has good advice about any situation I've told her about. She also is non-judgemental about however you might be feeling about a situation or even yourself. She validates your feelings!

Tracy has been really good and supoprtive
Working with Tracy has really provided an outlet and platform for me to work out some tough issues such as depression, self esteem, stress, and many other negative patterns of thinking and behavior.
Just writing things out to another person helps to know that someone is out there willing to support you and encourage you to be better.
For the brief time I have been working with Tracy, she seems to be a very good counselor. However, she appears to be quite busy and unresponsive at times. I would like to provide a better testimonial, but unfortunately I have not have as much interaction with her as I would like because of the lack of response I get from here.
Tracy is attentive and personal in her approach. She has a wonderful, positive and earnest way of showing support without imposing useless judgments. She is professional and uses appropriate discretion. I highly recommend Tracy's services.
The one thing I appreciate about Tracy is that she seems to really understand what I am dealing with on a daily basis. She is so empathetic and also seems to get where I am at any given moment. Her advice is always right on point and it seems to resonate with me. She is great with quote and they always seem to make her point so much better. I am so grateful for the help that Tracy has given me. I have a long way to go but with Tracy by my side I know I will be on my way to being a healthier and happier person
Tracy helped me through many difficult struggles, and I'm grateful for her non-judgmental listening ear and advice and exercises she taught me. It was just too expensive too continue as I am only a teacher.
Thank you Tracy!!
Tracy is incredibly kind, smart, and great to talk with. She has some awesome advice and helpful resources. I chat with her even when I'm feeling okay, because she helps keep me feeling okay.
Tracy has been very encouraging and supportive on my journey to happiness and peace. I am thankful for the time she has spent talking to me.

I am really enjoying working with Tracy- she responds quickly and thoughtfully. I feel like I am building a relationship with her just like I would with any other face to face therapist.

Tracy is very knowledgeable about lyme disease and chronic illnesses and offers plenty of practical advice. She is supportive, understanding and easy going. Even though I'm a very private person and have a difficult time opening up to new people, I'm very comfortable writing to her.
Tracy Wills is a wonderful councilor that I can really relate to because she not only reads what I have to say, but she sends me back great advice and asks questions. I appreciate the questions because it gives her more information about the situation. That way she can give even more advice that better suits the situation. Tracy is very caring and understanding. She is very knowledgeable at everything we have discussed. I have enjoyed our writing back and forth. I haven't had to use the URGENT button yet, but if I had to I think she would be right there for me.
Iâ€™ve felt very comfortable talking with Tracy, Iâ€™ve shared more than I ever thought I would be able to. She provides quick personal responses and is straight forward with her advice. I already feel a lot better about the issues that brought me to this site and I look forward to continuing to work with her.
Tracy is very supportive! She provides exercises and other resources to help deal with depression. She is honest and tells you the truth, which helps with the way you think about yourself and situations. I would recommend Tracy to anyone who needs a therapist who needs someone who is supportive and honest.
