Tracy Matthews is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Expressive Arts Coach/Educator who has served people of all ages since 2008. She earned her Bachelor of Social Work from Delaware State University in 2008 and later pursued her Master of Social Work from Morgan State University in 2012.
As a child, Tracy loved to dance. She attended several cultural art centers, performed at “Showtime At The Apollo”, danced for Delaware State University Approaching Storm Marching Band, and continues to dance as an adult. Tracy recognized how dance increased her self-esteem and confidence. She’d dance anytime she felt stressed or overwhelmed.
As a clinician, she believes that all forms of art are creative techniques that allow people to dive deep into their unconscious minds and navigate life without repeating bad habits. While working with Tracy, clients will use symbols, shapes, colors, lyrics, movement, materials, photos, acting, and mindful meditation to express their thoughts and emotions which will eventually lead to positive changed behaviors. Simultaneously, Tracy will provide CBT and Psychoeducation to guide her clients in shifting their perspectives and further understanding the dynamics of their underlying issues.
As an Expressive Arts Coach/Educator, she works closely with her attendees in each workshop she is facilitating. She guides them through informative instruction while also giving them the freedom to create and express themselves as needed. At times you will feel like you are engaging with your sister, aunt, mother, best friend, or college instructor. Leading with the understanding that we all make mistakes allows Tracy to connect with people on a deeper level. People feel comfortable when talking to Tracy because she understands the Human Experience.
