More about me
Years in Practice: 3
Hi! My name is Tracey Pauls. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland. I also carry a Supervisor's endorsement. I have been providing therapy to individuals, couples, groups and families for 7 years. I also have a background in education and worked as a teacher for 12 years. I have experience providing crisis intervention, have treated individuals facing substance abuse challenges and those reorienting into society after incarceration. I believe that every person has within themselves what they need for success. Sometimes we need help in revealing it.
My approach to therapy is mostly client centered. Since you are the expert on your life, therapy will be directed by you. I get the privilege of walking alongside you to provide education and support; while guiding you through self revelation; and hopefully, self validation and acceptance. I believe in a strengths based approach of using multiple strategies and modalities to help you meet your goals and objectives. We will work together to create a treatment plan that addresses your concerns with attainable goals to encourage your success. Through the use of Narrative therapy I guide my clients through the retelling of their life story from a perspective of strength and expertise as they learn to separate themselves from the issue of concern. CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) is used to identify the thoughts and beliefs that tend to direct our behavior. I believe that once we know and understand why we act a certain way we are more empowered to change it.
I hope for the opportunity to work with you to accomplish your goals and live a more successful and fulfilling life
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
