With over 28 years experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor, she is currently serving as a private practitioner and loves working with a broad spectrum of clients. Her referral base is mainly from happy, satisfied clients who have learned tools for improving their lives.
Tracie grew up in Arlington, Texas. Graduating from Lamar High School in the top of her class in 1981, she attended Texas A&M University where she was a Pre-Med major and a Varsity Diver on the swim team. Transferring to Auburn University in 1983 on an athletic Scholarship, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Psychology, Cum Laude.
Tracie went on to earn her Masters and graduated from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1988 with a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling. She wanted to have a balance between the psychological and the spiritual as she counseled people. She feels balance is a key to happiness in life. After graduating she spent her time getting licensed as a Professional Counselor and specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy as well as Addiction. Tracie feels it is important to have a broad base when counseling people, but also have some areas of specialization, which is why she became Licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist, and a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor.
Tracie enjoys counseling individuals, couples, and families. She has been in private practice since 1991 and owned her own business in Arlington, Psychiatric Associates of Arlington, until 2004, when she moved her practice to Dallas to be closer to her home and children. She is a solo practitioner who utilizes all aspects of the mental health field in her practice, including psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and other counselors and doctors.
I have been divorced and raised children in a blended family, suffered from infertility, miscarriages, and experienced the range of emotions that accompany traumatic experiences. Blessed with two motivated and disciplined kids who became collegiate athletes and are on their own now, I am happy and energetic and bring this energy and balance to my practice. I also enjoy running, weights, reading, painting (and hang my artwork in my office), dancing, and all water and snow sports.
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback as a directive therapist to help you effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, I work with you to help build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.
