About Me

Hello, my name is Tracy Faust and I have been practicing Psychotherapy with those of nearly all ages for 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 the last six years, I have been working with children and families providing in-home psychotherapy, both individually with the identified client as well as family-based with parents and siblings.

Do you have a child or teen struggling with finding his or her way through things in life? Transitions in childhood and adolescence, whether environmental or internal, can be troublesome for our children today. Parents - no matter level of skill - can have difficulties determining expected maturation from problematic development. You've come to the right place. Let me help you and your child navigate through these changes, and be assured that you will be provided with honest, responsible feedback along with sound recommendations and interventions to aid you and your child through these challenging times in his or her young life.

Written by K.A. on Nov 05, 2020 after counseling with Tracy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

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 counseling 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.

Tracy is a good person to talk to and for me that’s hard to find she answers in good time. For me she helped me feel less alone in the world. I know it’s ok to share things with her that I can’t or won’t talk about to others. She asked me questions I don’t even know how to answer. She’s a great counselor to have.
