Welcome to Better Help and congratulations on taking this first important step on this journey!
My name is Tracie Strabel and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York State. In 2002, I earned my Master's of Social Work degree from the University of Buffalo. Over the past 18+ years, I have provided clinical social work services in a variety of settings, including forensics, child protection, and community mental health clinics. In these settings, I have assisted families, individuals, educators, and professionals with addressing depression, anxiety, gender identity, relationship issues, stress, autism spectrum related concerns, and trauma/abuse issues that may be impacting current relationships.
The most common, yet fragile thread that ties relationships together, is communication. I have worked with couples with concerns ranging from not feeling as connected as they would like to infidelity. I understand the courage and strength it takes to first acknowledge the problem and then, second, to take the steps to address. Over my years of clinical practice, I have developed a fondness for staying solution focused and helping people reconnect with their personal strengths and resiliency that often gets lost when life becomes challenging. I believe everyone has the ability to over come obstacles - sometimes we just need a little help getting there.
I am looking forward to being your guide and assisting you with identifying and mastering the tools and skills you need to not only successfully resolve the concerns that brought you here today, but to continue to successfully clear future hurdles as well.

Tracie is a fantastic counselor/therapist. I was always very concerned with having a therapist but she took away that stigma and has been great at helping me deal with my issues and unearthing issues that I didn’t realize I have. I’m extremely grateful to her and her expertise. Thank you Tracie!
