About Me

Hi, my name is Tracy. I'm a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-C) with 18 years of professional experience. I value authenticity, humility, and compassion in my practice. I utilize a strength's- based perspective when working with clients to empower them, and believe in a holistic approach to healing. My philosophy is based on tranz-ed or transformation education, which is the intentional transformation of oneself and one's environment, in order to promote positive change. I have spent the last 13 years providing school-based counseling services to children and adolescence in the public school system. I'm reliable, approachable, and present with my clients. My expertise are in the area of ADHD, PTSD, and child trauma. I am passionate about child advocacy, mentoring, and coaching. I've worked with various populations including survivors of child abuse and trauma, developmentally disabled adults and children, medically fragile children, survivors of domestic violence, children with behavioral disorders and mood disordes, children with learning disabilities, eating disorders, and children and families in foster care. I'm a mother, single parent, and dog lover. I value hard work, honesty, and compassion. I'm energetic, positive, and encouraging. In my free time I enjoy staying active, being outdoors, and spending quality time with my son.

This was my first experience with counseling , and I was cautious and didn't know what to expect. Tracy made me feel comfortable and not weirded out by the process. I left the session feeling a bit lighter than I did before it started. Can't wait to schedule another session with her.
