Tracey Nowell, LMFT

About Tracey

Professional Credentials:
I have been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist since 2003 with a private practice in Campbell, CA.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Azusa Pacific University and obtained Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University.

For years I have worked in a variety of therapy settings – from youth and family agencies dealing with crisis situation to drug and alcohol therapeutic environments to severely emotionally disturbed adolescent programs. 

Therapeutic Styles:
There is not one treatment plan or therapeutic theory that fits with every client.  From the beginning of therapy, a treatment plan is developed to meet your needs.  My therapeutic style involves a combination of Cognitive and Dialectical Behavior, Psychodynamic and Family Systems therapies.

Some of my areas of emphasis are depression, anxiety, relationship stress, life transitions, personal values development, and addictions. I also have a special interest in working with women regarding self-esteem and body issues.

Length of Therapy and Treatment Approach:
Many individuals ask about the length of therapy.  There is no definitive answer for this because everyone moves at their own pace.  While some are able to gain significant insight and growth in a short amount of time, therapy is not a quick fix for underlying issues that have caused concern.   Early in treatment, we together will set goals and a time frame depending on your needs.  Most clients come weekly for several months while others see me on a continual basis for several years.

I view therapy as a collaborative effort; from setting up treatment goals in the beginning, to enabling a person to gain a better understand of their thoughts, feelings and behavior.  Throughout the process, you can develop the skills to make necessary changes and move towards healing and balance in your life.

I have both daytime and evening hours available by appointment.
