ABOUT TRACEY

Tracey Wade profile

Tracey Wade, MSW, RSW

I am a devoted mother, partner and friend who feels her best when outdoors and surrounded by nature in all its glory! I, like so many, am not a stranger to adversity and hardship. I have had my own healing journey and know how difficult it can be to reach out for help. I also know the great rewards that can come from doing so.

With respect and compassion, I have dedicated my career to working collaboratively with others for the purpose of helping them discover solutions to life’s difficulties, and to make meaningful changes. I believe we all have the capacity to make those changes. To feel better and do better for ourselves and those we love.

My practice is cushioned in kindness, client-centered, trauma informed, sensitive to cultural diversity and LGBQT positive.
