As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor,
Tracy gets to do what she’s most passionate about: care for people and cultivate potential.
After years of doing print design, copywriting and brand management professionally, she pursued her passion for people by obtaining a M.S. in Counseling Psychology from Palm Beach Atlantic University. She sees clients throughout the week at Seasons Counseling Orlando in Maitland.
In a counseling session, Tracy has a very conversational and relational approach with clients. Working within a Christian worldview, she will often draw upon Scripture and biblical truths to help clients navigate through past and present problems or concerns.
To that end, Tracy believes that healing has to be holistic and, therefore, therapy has to be a discussion of your entire story — past and present — as well as an intentional focus on the balance of mind, body and spirit.
Out of the office, Tracy is a wife, mini-dachshund momma, horse girl, outside enthusiast, runner, aspiring writer, fledgling gardener and Country music listener.

Personal and Practice Values
Tracy is motivated by God’s truth and the potential of His creation. She believes psychology is a nod to theology — that pathology (our problems/pain) is but an indicator and an inroad to the eternal (and unfathomable) purposes of God. To that end, prayer and Scripture can be powerful tools in any transformative and healing process. Tracy does not counsel Christians exclusively, but she will gladly incorporate biblical truths if the client is amenable.
Counseling is a process and requires a commitment from both the client and the therapist. The first step is often the hardest, but the journey can be revolutionary and freeing. Tracy truly believes that clients can find courage, confront fears and work through seemingly impossible obstacles. One day at a time, one session at a time, progress is possible … and it’s worth the work.
You can expect authenticity, acceptance and compassion when you come to counseling. Tracy believes that a trusting counselor-client relationship is a helpful catalyst for change. She also believes that healthy relationships, in general, are foundational to emotional and spiritual healing and growth. As a result, work in therapy often involves focus on past and current relationships and their dynamic and impact.
