Tracey is a licensed clinical social worker who has been in private practice since 1997. She has a B.A. in Psychology and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Michigan. Tracey’s clinical practice includes individuals who present with emotional, behavioral, cognitive, family, and other relationships issues. She is a child and adolescent therapist who also provides exceptional therapy for adults, couples, and families. Tracey uses her laid-back approach and direct language to connect with children and adolescents. Her goal is to help them enhance their problem-solving skills.
In her capacity as a child and adolescent therapist, she encourages her younger clients to analyze their behaviors and to make changes that others demand, e.g. parents or legal authorities while pursuing age-appropriate autonomy. Ownership of a problem allows children and adolescents to make changes with less resentment toward parents, school personnel, probation officers, and therapists.
Tracey uses a variety of tools in addition to talk therapy. These include play and art therapy, games, journaling, and take-home assignments.Tracey likes spunk in “kids” of all ages. Whether individuals struggle with depression, bipolar, PTSD, ADD, school issues, relationship difficulties, or other problems, she believes that a key to successful treatment is for clients to be an active participant in their therapy and gain more control of their lives.
