My name is Tracey Watkins-Gobbeo, and I am a passionate therapist with a deep commitment to
helping children and families overcome challenges and thrive. I’m excited to share a little bit about
myself and my journey in this field.
With over 29 years of teaching experience, I have had the privilege of working with children from
diverse backgrounds and with a variety of issues. My career in education provided me with valuable
insights into the unique needs and struggles children face on a daily basis.
In 2017, I completed my master’s degree in counseling from Concordia University. This advanced
training equipped me with the latest research-backed techniques and therapeutic approaches to better
serve the children under my care. My educational background has been instrumental in shaping my
understanding of child development, mental health, and effective intervention strategies.
What truly fuels my passion is witnessing the transformative power of therapy in the lives of children.
Guiding them on their journey towards healing, growth, and self-discovery is an immensely rewarding
experience for me. I firmly believe in the importance of creating a safe and nurturing environment
where children can explore their emotions, build resilience, and develop the skills needed to navigate
Throughout my career, I have worked with children facing a range of issues, including anxiety,
depression, trauma, ADHD, and behavioral difficulties. I take a holistic approach to therapy, tailoring my
interventions to meet the unique needs of each child and their family. By combining evidence-based
practices, empathy, and a warm therapeutic relationship, I strive to empower children and help them
unlock their full potential.
Outside of my professional work, I enjoy staying updated on the latest research and attending to expand
my knowledge. This ensures that I am continuously growing as a therapist and can provide the best
possible care to the children I serve.
If you’re seeking a compassionate therapist dedicated to supporting your child’s well-being and growth, I
would be honored to be part of their journey. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to discuss how I
can assist your child in overcoming their challenges and reaching their highest potential. I look forward
to the opportunity of making a positive difference in the lives of the wonderful children I have the
privilege to work with.
