Seeing yourself differently is often the first step to living the life you truly want to live.

Welcome to my website; I’m Tracy! I am a licensed clinical psychologist and I am very invested in helping you create your best life. Finding your internal strength to increase your self-esteem and self-confidence will empower you to create a life that is rich in healthy, productive, and adaptive behaviors and relationships.

I use proven therapies to overcome depression and anxiety and I believe in using humor and grace as a means to face the challenges and obstacles that occur in life. I am humbled and feel both privileged and blessed to be a part of your therapeutic journey. I specialize in the treatment of adolescents and their families, relationship issues, women’s issues, anxiety, and depression.

Anxiety

Over the past several years I have seen a significant rise in patients seeking treatment for anxiety. I use a multi-pronged approach to teach patients how to conquer their anxiety using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Given that it is physiologically impossible to experience both anxiety and relaxation at the same time, I pair CBT strategies with relaxation techniques. Finally, I will provide you with the tools to create new neural pathways that will challenge your brain to think in new ways.

Relationship Issues

Working with individual patients as well as couples to improve the quality of their relationship(s) is a true pleasure for me. If you are in a relationship, therapy can help improve your communication and connectedness, fortifying your bond. If you are experiencing a relationship loss, therapy can help you navigate the pain, sadness, fear, and disappointment. Treatment can help you to not only heal but empower you to move forward, establishing future relationships that are honest, compassionate, and nurturing.

The Growing Pains Of

Adolescent Treatment

Treating adolescents and their families has been an area of expertise for me throughout my career. When working with adolescents, I strive to help them gain insight into how their behaviors are undermining their own success. Once they are able to see that negative behaviors prevent them from accomplishing their goals and dreams, behavior change can happen quickly. A friend once remarked that raising adolescents “is not for the faint-hearted”. With my approach, I not only empower adolescents to make healthy and adaptive choices, but also support parents in reestablishing a healthy and adaptive relationship with their child.
