Tracey has over nine years of clinical experience working with children and adolescents ages 4-17, using a variety of therapeutic techniques. Her experience includes providing care in the outpatient mental health setting, as well as in community and school environments.
“My passion as a therapist is to bring positivity, growth and encouragement into a child or adolescent’s life. To help them understand through guidance and support that they can be a better version of themselves as a family member, a student, and a friend. To see my client’s evolve from the beginning of therapy to the end – by seeing a smile return, hope return, and change happen when they had previously never thought it was possible – is my goal and my reward.”
Tracey’s level of expertise crosses a large span of mental health issues with children and adolescents. Specialties include:
Working as a team, an Integrated Behavioral Health Provider (IBHP) and your Primary Care Provider (PCP) consider the physical, behavioral, social and emotional aspects of your health and help you determine a course of action that will work best for you.
Fort HealthCare’s IBHPs are psychologists or licensed clinical social workers that understand the connection between the mind, body and spirit, as well as the impact of these areas on a person’s health. They can help you and your PCP develop treatment plans for smoking cessation, unhealthy eating, physical inactivity, alcohol use, or other necessary lifestyle changes. The IBHP can also help you to develop skills to effectively manage social, emotional or behavioral difficulties.
The new program will provide more immediate, solution-focused strategies to address behavioral health needs, offer continued access to psychiatric services and improved communication and coordination of care between primary care clinicians, mental healthcare providers and agencies. Most important, we believe this program offers improved overall health for our patients by delivering preventive and acute behavioral health care in the most effective manner.
Our board certified psychiatrists provide assessment, evaluation and treatment for individuals with a variety of mental health needs. Psychiatrists are medical physicians who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental illnesses including substance abuse and addiction. They are uniquely qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological conditions. Because they are medical doctors they may also determine if there is a need for medication to restore imbalances in body chemistry that are often contribute to your mental health and well-being.
