Hi, I'm Tracey Rubenstein, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I know how it feels to have a secret, and to feel hurt.
I also know how it feels to be supported, heard and understood. It’s your turn. I became a therapist to give you what helped me most: expert support.
I founded Strength to Strength to provide a safe and nurturing environment for adults to understand and master their anxiety, depression, and fear caused by a traumatic or painful life experience.
I work with people who are ready to explore the underlying causes of their pain and want to reclaim their self-compassion and love for others in order to lead healthier, happier and highly productive lives.
My Style of Psychotherapy
One of the most important aspects of therapy is for you to feel safe and supported. I use a direct, honest and gentle style of exploring any issue you are facing. Strength to Strength is your safe haven where whatever you say will be listened to and accepted without judgment.
I offer both group therapy and individual therapy. Based on your treatment goals and needs, we will develop an individualized program for you that may involve one-on-one therapy, group therapy or a combination.
My Clinical Education and Licenses
I became a licensed clinical social worker in 2001 after earning my Master of Social Work degree from Tulane University and completing a 12 month clinical internship at DePaul Hospital in New Orleans. Prior to that, I completed my undergraduate work at Middlebury College. I am a Board Certified Telemental Health Professional, a Florida Qualified Supervisor for Registered Social Work Interns, and I am licensed in Florida, Arkansas, and New York.
Experience in Clinical Social Work
My career began serving victims of crime at the New Orleans District Attorney's Office. I was the Coordinator of the YWCA Rape Crisis Program in New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina, and then I transitioned to private practice in Florida in 2010. I am an Adjunct Instructor in the Phyllis and Harvey Sandler School of Social Work at Florida Atlantic University (since 2020), and I continue to enjoy my private practice.
