About Tracy

Tracy Thomas is a California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). She provides multi-cultural mental health care services to marginalized, underrepresented, and underserved communities.

In her person-centered, humanistic approach to therapy, she helps students with a variety of challenges such as academic stress, burnout, intimate partner and family relationship challenges, identity development, social justice issues, and more.

Tracy has specialized interest, training, and experience in treating symptoms due to traumatic experiences. She is an EMDRIA certified practitioner and uses EMDR as a primary tool to help clients heal from symptoms of trauma.

How I Work With Students

My personal philosophy in counseling is rooted in the belief that regardless of the emotional and functional challenges that one might be facing, each person can experience emotional freedom and reach their maximum potential in life. This can be achieved through access to an empathic and culturally humble counselor who helps the client reprocess traumatic events, learn and practice mindfulness skills, accept each experience as it is in the moment, interact with their emotions with grace, and commit to aligning their thoughts and behaviors with their core values to achieve desired outcomes. If a student is ready and willing to do the work, they can absolutely heal.

In my person-centered approach to therapy, I often use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), DBT, and EMDR to treat clients.
