Hello! I'm Tracy Winter, the researcher for this project. I'm working on my dissertation to earn a Ph.D. in Human Development from Fielding Graduate University.
My advisor once told me that I've been preparing my whole life to do this research. As usual, she is probably right.

Many of our gifted clients have said they feel Seen for the first time when they work with us, which is both wonderful and sad.
Things that can always make me smile:
