Tracey A. Lamers, MA, LPCC
Tracey is a psychotherapist, gardener, athlete, and nature lover. In a short span of time she experienced many deaths in her family. To cope with the overwhelming amount of loss, she found a mindfulness meditation group to be of utmost use during her time of grief. Mindfulness gave her the tools to be with the grief one moment at a time. As a result she decided that she wanted to share the wisdom of her journey with others. Rather than move away from the pain of grief and loss, she moved towards it to learn and grow and to understand more about death and dying and the bereavement process. Though you may not be able to tolerate your grief or those around you want you to get over it quickly, Tracey is able to hold the space for you to express it without judgment.
She has been an in-home hospice volunteer, a grief hike leader and cabin buddy for the Moyer Foundation’s Camp Erin Children’s grief camp, and she also facilitates Mindful Grief Support Groups. Tracey received her master’s degree in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University, Boulder, Colorado. She offers her clients a grounding experience that honors the uniqueness of the individual. Each person is the expert on her or his or their own life. Tracey provides a safe space for clients to work through difficulties be it grief and loss, anxiety and depression, life transitions, self-esteem or relationship issue or teaching women to stand in their power. She is open and welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community and is keenly aware of the threat the current political climate has on members of this community.
Tracey was a competitive runner and cyclist and marathon cross country ski racer for many years. She has also competed in triathlons from sprint to Ironman distance. She offers mindfulness for athletes to assist them with anxiety and doubt that hampers their athletic performance. She has a zest for life that is infectious. In her free time she enjoys hiking, trail running, cycling, gardening, cross country skiing, cooking, and absorbing the healing power of nature.
