Who Am I?

Therapy Echo Park Silverlake

Hi, I’m Tracy Sondern (She/Her), a Los Angeles based Psychotherapist. I worked as a creative professional for over 30 years, in both New York and Los Angeles, before earning my master’s degree in clinical psychology at age 60. My own therapy helped me make this life transition by examining my beliefs about myself and what I wanted in the next phase of my journey. It helped me see that I didn’t have to limit myself because of my age and that so much more was open to me. I love being a therapist and helping people discover what is authentic to them. I have a wealth of lived experience which includes cancer, infertility, and adoption, among other issues. I believe this experience is a great asset for a therapist to have and helps me bring needed empathy to what my clients are going through. When I’m not seeing clients, you will find me with my hands in clay making ceramics, hiking with friends or at home with my partner, son, and two cats.

"Tracy is a wise and gifted healer with a deep perspective on life and relationships. I've loved collaborating with her in the past and couldn't recommend her enough, especially for clients struggling with age, ageism and life transitions."

I highly recommend Tracy! She has a wealth of insight from her years in the creative world and her genuine care for her clients is naturally felt.
