      Not all therapists are a good fit for patients' needs.  The holistic approach (avoiding medication for mental health issues) isn't appropriate for all individuals. Most patients who have positive experiences don't put reviews as well.

      Horrible , I would advise people to choose their providers carefully , after telling part of my story ... She told me she couldn't accept and thanks for reaching out and good luck ... Really ! I felt horrible mentally to begin with and for some one to sa y that to you made me feel even worse about myself ... big red flag .. Huge !!!! I'm sure there are many Great Therapists .. She is not !!!!

      She has been helping me a lot. When I first went to her I was skeptical about some of the things she was recommending me to do but then they actually worked. The only thing I would recommend for her is to not be in her phone so much.
      I ran out of antidepressant medication when I started seeing this provider and she would not prescribe a taper for me to safely wean off the medication. I was sick for a week with headaches, mood swings and nausea and was only told to take some vitamins to help. It was a terrible experience and not safe in my opinion.

      Traci has been such a positive influence in my life. She is very professional and has helped me navigate through my post-divorcre life. She is very knowledgable and has referred me to a wealth of information (books, articles, web sites etc.). I always look forward to meeting with Traci, she is a pleasure to work with.
      in Haddam, CT |
      Traci has helped me so much. She is very focused on holistic approaches and has really challenges me to work on things I need to work on. I have grown tremendously working with her and have much better coping mechanisms. I have learned to recognize my negative patterns and change my behavior and responses to situations. I love her pragmatic approach. I can't speak highly enough about Traci- I moved to almost 50 minutes away and would never consider finding someone new.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
