Tracy Rappold, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Here is some information about me that I hope will help you decide whether I'd be a good fit for you. 

My style of counseling is focused on what feelings you are avoiding, as well as taking a look at the defenses that are causing suffering.

 

BACKGROUND

I received my Master's in Counseling and Human Relations from Villanova University in 2011. In 2015, I launched my private practice as a psychotherapist. I use an eclectic approach by incorporating traditional psychotherapeutic modalities (psychodynamic, mindfulness-based, somatic).

After my master's degree, I have continued with ongoing training to refine and enhance my clinical practice.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship itself can be a powerful agent for change. I adhere to a strengths-based philosophy in which I can help you with finding ways to empower yourself to make positive changes in your life. My style of therapy is person-centered and collaborative; together we will understand how thoughts and behaviors may be adversely impacting your life. I will assist you in becoming more mindful of your emotions and exploring the role emotional reactivity may be playing in your life as well.
