Dr. Tracy Robinson-Wood has been a licensed counselor for 20 years. Her clinical focus is upon establishing and maintaining a safe therapeutic environment for patients across race, gender, age, religion, and sexuality, to uncover and give voice to thoughts, beliefs, memories, and internalized dictates that impede psychological health and well-being. She uses a variety of therapeutic modalities, including narrative psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and humanistic psychotherapy in her work.
Tracy's research investigates the intersection of race, gender, class and culture in psychosocial identity development. Her current research projects are: 1) White mothers, black mothers, white fathers, and black fathers of black/white children, and; 2) A qualitative investigation, of microaggressions among highly educated racial, gender, and sexual minorities.
The fifth edition of her textbook, The Convergence of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Multiple identities in Counseling is anticipated in 2016.
