Therapy for Introverted Sensitive Teens & Adults
Embrace the life that’s right for the Introverted or Quiet/Sensitive You
Many quiet and/or sensitive or introverted teens and adults lack self acceptance, have difficulty expressing their emotions in a healthy way and struggle to build relationships. Quiet or Introverted teens and young adults can also struggle with social anxiety which impacts their confidence, causes stress with attending school, being a team member at work, playing group sports, and with making friends and developing relationships.
A common reaction is to avoid situations that cause the anxiety, which then can lead to isolation and reduced connections with others.
I provide the tools and guide you to create a more fulfilling life that allows you to embrace who you are.

How I Help Introverted Sensitive People
Adolescence is often perceived by teens, parents and society as a time when teenagers socialize with large groups of friends several times a week and are often involved in group activities. For some teens, that’s not the experience they have and it has a significant impact on them. Most do not have the resources to overcome how they feel about not ‘belonging’. They feel overwhelmed…
Many highly sensitive or introverted people spend their lives being misunderstood by others. This impacts their self-esteem, makes it difficult to form close relationships and succeed at work. Instead of embracing their unique qualities, they feel deeply defective and alone.Read more about Quiet/Sensitive/Introverted Adults
“I would recommend Tracy to friends and family who feel trapped in their head, their life, or their situation, or to those who need someone to help them feel heard and like they exist. I would recommend Tracy to these people because she helped me feel freer by gently unwinding me. While I typically like to reflect alone, Tracy helped me continue with an internal process without feeling like there was an external force. So to that, I would also recommend her to those who like to work things out on their own, but need a little nudge out of a constricting inward/downward spiral.”
“My son is a quiet introvert and was struggling with attendance at school due to his accompanying social anxiety disorder. My son now has no issues with his attendance at school. I have seen his confidence increase and although the anxiety is still present, he is more able to cope and push through it. My son has spoken positively about his counselling sessions with Tracy and states that she makes him feel like he is not alone.

Tracy provided a way for her to explore some of these very deeply held notions about herself and start to myth bust many of the narratives playing in her head. I saw my daughter begin to understand that her personality (quiet and sensitive) was not only normal but also brings some welcomed diversity into the world. I saw her embracing her qualities and holding her head higher as a result. The support from Tracy has been invaluable and I know that both my daughter and I have grown for the better because of her support. During an already challenging year, I know we would not be in the place we are today without the help of Tracy.”
