Hi! I’m Traci.

About Me

Favorite Cartoon:

Definitely Tom and Jerry. I love how they always bounce back up and never let the other get the best of them.

Why I started HFTJ:

I had the absolute privilege of starting my clinical career at a child mental health group healing sexual abuse issues in Raleigh, NC. Working with survivors and juvenile offenders taught me about how strong and inspiring people can be.

After moving back home to the Austin area in 2015, I wanted Central Texas to have the same access to expert, comprehensive care.

If I had a warning label it would say:

“Do not feed after midnight”

How I Help

I am the founder/director of Hope For The Journey (HFTJ). I’m the one in charge of making sure things run smoothly for you and your therapist. If you have questions that your therapist can’t answer about how things run or you’d like to give us some feedback or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you!

I have almost 20 years of experience working in a variety of settings with sexual abuse and other trauma issues. I have a small private practice separate from HFTJ in Austin where I see mostly recovering perfectionists with a history of trauma.

While I don’t provide any direct services to clients at HFTJ, I am working in the background to make sure you and your therapist have all the support you need to accomplish your treatment goals.
