    Registered Psychotherapist

    Tracy believes that each client is entitled to an individualized approach to their therapy treatment which is as unique as they are.  She believes that it takes courage to reach out for help and that change is hard work, but with the right therapist it can be positively life changing. 

    Tracy enjoys working with individuals and couples. She is married with two teenagers and often works to support parents and help them improve their relationships with their children. Her age, background and counselling experience enable her to help guide, collaborate and support clients that are emotionally overwhelmed, dealing with depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, grief, trauma, difficult life transitions, relationship problems, parenting challenges and other personal issues.

    Combining mind and body based therapies, Tracy empowers clients to achieve their goals, resolve conflict, improve their relationships, help them heal and move forward towards greater peace of mind and psychological wellness. Using the principles of psychodynamic and attachment therapy and drawing from cognitive behavioural, solution focused, and mindfulness practices, she works together with clients to help them address difficult issues, experience personal growth and healing.

    When working with clients, I use various approaches that identify irrational or negative thoughts and present alternative viewpoints in designing personalized solutions, that change their perspectives. Additionally during these sessions, I encourage people to exercise self-compassion and be accepting of their “real” self; by learning to embrace and being comfortable within their own skin. My job is to help to facilitate a sense of growth in the individual, utilizing strategies that are adaptive and empowering.
