Having worked with a wide range of clients over the years, I currently work  with  high functioning clients seeking help with relationships, stress and anxiety, depression, goals and dreams, or issues related to emotion and self-esteem.  In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, whether in my office or on the phone, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they're striving for. My own health and growth have always been a priority in my life and help me to be real with my clients.

Whether your concerns are individual, with  relationships, family, parenting, work or friends, or life transitions, I am here to help guide and coach you to a better place. My 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.  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 and doctors.
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.
