Tracy Tomasetti is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has 16 years of experience helping adults achieve their goals through education. She has extensive experience working with students to define what it takes to elevate their career. Two years ago, Tracy felt the need to assist students on a deeper level, and elevated her own education by completing a second master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and school counseling through National Louis University. Her yearlong internship was in a high school assisting students with academic, social emotional, and college/career needs. Education did not always come easy to Tracy. She struggled with learning at a young age and had to overcome many obstacles. As she went through her educational journey, Tracy realized there are many people who struggle with education and life situations. This revelation drove Tracy to want to help people on a deeper level.
I feel it is important to connect with the right therapist, because it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. I understand this process can be overwhelming and, at times, unsettling. I am a warm and inviting clinician, and I am interested in you as you are, unconditionally. There are many beautiful moments in life, and sometimes we have to work through messy and complicated things to see that beauty. I am here to support you through both life's unexpected events and ordinary stressors that may blur your vision and impair your ability to see your joy and your gifts. I hold a non-judgmental space for you be vulnerable.
I value the therapeutic relationship and respect the uniqueness of each person. I utilize a holistic approach, merging talk therapy and relationship building, with CBT's cognitive challenging and restructuring, with the creativity of art, movement, and breath work. This allows clients of all ages to explore vulnerability from different angles.
A strong therapeutic relationship is key to successful therapy. You have to trust your therapist with the most delicate parts of yourself in order to be able to explore the deepest parts of yourself. I believe I am a well-qualified source of support, and I look forward to seeing if you agree. Come as you are and let’s explore life’s journey together.
