As a clinician with over eleven years of experience in behavioral health, Tracy specializes in psychiatric crisis intervention, co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders in both residential and community settings. Her passion is to ensure exceptional care is given to the marginalized and disenfranchised.
Tracy's approach to supervision parallels her approach to counseling. The relationship is the core of the experience. Tracy's career has evolved from providing direct clinical care to managing and supervising programs and staff. She believes influencing the macro system is just as crucial, and rewarding, as one-on-one work. To make meaningful impact one must be willing to think critically and incorporate innovated approaches into their practice.
Tracy's supervision style challenges the supervisee to move outside his or her comfort zone while minding the Social Work framework. Tracy enjoys teaching and has done so on topics such as suicide and homicide risk, Mental Health First Aid, and signs and symptoms of various diagnoses. Over the course of her career, Tracy has provided clinical supervision to both undergraduate and graduate students seeking advanced clinical licensure.
