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. 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 has worked in non-profit and inpatient settings. 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
I have been married, divorced and raised children in a blended family, suffered from
infertility, miscarriages, and experienced a 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 time with my grandchildren, cardio, weights, reading, painting (and hang my artwork in my
office), dancing, and all water and snow sports.
I am an interactive, cognitive behavioral therapist. My therapeutic approach
is to provide support and practical feedback as a directive therapist. 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. If you are interested in more information
