Tracy Davis-Black, LCSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Berkeley
My approach is warm, authentic, direct and humorous. I believe that transparency, curiosity and collaboration are integral to the therapeutic process. I honor that people are the expert on their own experiences. I partner with people to cultivate hope, uncover insights, and build upon existing strengths. I incorporate art, mindfulness and sand tray into my sessions. I help people to get unstuck and feel confident in their lives and relationships.
I specialize in working with survivors of trauma and PTSD including those suffering with anxiety. I work with people in recovery and struggling with codependence. I enjoy working with the LGBTQ community including gender expansive folks.
I offer couples therapy and individual therapy to adults. My approach is holistic, collaborative, gender-affirmative and culturally responsive. I have extensive training in trauma, attachment theory, EMDR, emotional focused couples therapy, and family systems theory.
