EMDR Certified Therapist

About Me

Clients who are seeking to be more confident, powerful, and effective are likely to work well with me. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families from a positive psychology perspective--helping them to use their strengths to improve their moods and their lives. I can help people improve their current relationships and their dating success. My interpersonal style is non-judgmental, encouraging, and solution-oriented. Before I started my private practice in Rittenhouse Square, I was the director of the Charles O'Brien Center for Addiction Treatment at the University of Pennsylvania. I am happy to provide therapy or coaching virtually or in person. www.tracysteen.com

Education & Experience

My Ph.D. in clinical psychology is from the University of Michigan. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) to help people heal from trauma. I am also trained in DeTUR, a method for helping people to overcome urges to engage in unwanted behaviors. In addition, I am certified in the evidence-based CRAFT approach to working with the loved ones of substance abusers.
