Tracie A. McDowell, MA Counselor I offer a varied approach toward therapy, utilizing therapeutic interventions most appropriate for your needs. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort with you as an active participant. I enjoy helping you learn new skills and change core beliefs about yourself that allow you to enjoy life. I look forward to working with you to help and empower you toward growth and goals you have for treatment.

Being a therapist is a unique privilege, allowing me to know others in ways that we rarely get to in everyday life. While working with clients, I demonstrate compassion, empathy and patience about the human condition; and optimism about our ability to change.
