Tracy Batten, LPC

Since the age of 15 when I sought counseling, an interest in psychology emerged and led to a journey to help others as I had benefited. I completed a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va. and later completed a Master of Science and Master of Mental Health Counseling degrees from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. Prior to my graduate work, I was certified as a behavior analyst working with children and adults with developmental disabilities and autism.  I have over 25 years of individual, group, family, and couple counseling experience with ages ranging from childhood through adulthood.  I maintain licenses to practice psychotherapy in Florida and Missouri. For me, my profession is not only a career but a passion and a lifestyle. I strive to help individuals with a collaborative integrated therapeutic approach incorporating cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and mindfulness styles of therapy that suit individual needs and goals. I find importance uncovering learned beliefs and conclusions formed since childhood that often interfere with wellbeing in adulthood. My hope is to assist individuals improve self-awareness through increased acceptance of themselves and their world, and to identify and shift perspectives that may interfere with their quality of life 

I specialize in treating: 

PTSD related to sexual, emotional and or physical traumas  

Asperger’s syndrome/autism 

Depression 

Grief 

Obsessive, generalized and social anxieties 

Life change and aging 

Situational/occupational stress 

Body image 

LGBTQ individual and couples counseling 

Pre/post-operative bariatric patients 

 

I enjoy incorporating a holistic approach encouraging the importance of nutrition, exercise, social connection, and recreation with overall wellbeing.  I currently am accepting teens and adults for individual counseling. I occasionally provide couples and families counseling.
