Tracy Vadakumchery is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the State of New York. She treats depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship-related issues in individual therapy. She also specializes in Eating Disorders and Disordered Eating, and depression and anxiety related to life transitions, grief, and loss.
Tracy is a South Asian American, straight, cisgender therapist who is passionate about challenging Desi/South Asian beliefs about mental health, race, and healthy relationships. She particularly enjoys working with women of color who have trouble in their relationships and are navigating workplace trauma. In fact, Tracy is no stranger to these challenges herself. She currently provides diagnostic services for incarcerated patients in a correctional setting, and previously provided supportive services in the homes of families across Manhattan and Queens. She is familiar with the uncomfortable feeling of facing fears head-on and coping with feelings of inferiority.
Tracy believes that there is no such thing as "bad" or "good" emotions. She also believes that change comes with self-compassion and understanding of personal barriers. She hopes that her approach to therapy can help her clients see their emotions as strengths rather than struggles. Her goal is for clients to walk away from therapy with tools to handle these challenges on their own.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, she is exclusively offering video therapy sessions at this time.
