About Tracey Poirrier

I specializing in the treatment of depression, anxiety, personality disorders and relationships. I have more than ten years experience working with adults, adolescents, children, couples and families in a variety of settings. The relationship with your therapist is one of the most important factors in successful therapy. I'm grateful that you are considering me as someone who can help. I treat people with compassion, respect and understanding and believe everyone has within themselves the power to heal and improve their lives - no matter what has happened in the past.

I focus on the whole person and the bio-psycho-social-spiritual aspects of the self. Those who have undergone the process are often healthier than those who have not. Some techniques used: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, positive psychology, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused, hypnosis, DBT and EMDR.

I take a non-judgmental, practical approach to addressing life's problems, with an eye to instilling in you a sense of mastery and competence.
