POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL SOLUTIONS, LLC - Helping People Achieve Positive Outcomes.

Tracy S. Ramos, MA, LMHC  Clinical Director/Counselor/Owner
As a therapist, I feel it is important for a client to feel safe, understood, heard clearly, and validated. I believe when a client has increased awareness about self, relationships, and life, that is when positive changes occur. I believe each client has their own individual strengths inside them and it's a matter of helping the client bring them up to the surface and utilizing them to become or create The happiness and fulfillment that each human is capable of having in their lives. 
I am an eclectic therapist that specializes in individual therapy, relationship therapy, adolescent therapy, child therapy, and family therapy. I work together as a team with my clients in developing and implementing the best strategies and solutions to assist them in achieving their goals. I am also a multicultural counselor that works with different individuals, relationships, and families from all different backgrounds. I work with the LGBT community as well as men issues in different aspects such as relationships, connecting at a deeper emotional level with their partners, and also helping individuals get unstuck and start moving forward in life.
