Tracy Wood, M.Ed., LMFT
Who am I?
I am an experienced PA-licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) who loves the work I do. I am a member of AAMFT, the national professional organization for marriage and family therapists, where I have earned the status of Clinical Fellow, a credentialed category granted to only those clinicians who have met rigorous standards in education, training, and experience in marriage and family therapy. I am also the founder of Main Line Relationship Center, a resident of the Main Line, a wife of 20+ years, and a mom.
Why am I unique?
Among the therapists who say they offer "couples therapy," "sex therapy," or "family therapy," there are -- unfortunately -- many that have no training in these unique disciplines. You can be reassured that I spent several years training in these approaches specifically. I have the specialized training, credentials and experience to help you address marital and couple discord, sexual concerns, difficult family relationships, anxiety, depression and many other concerns.
What is my approach?
As a systemically-trained therapist, I look at clients and their struggles within the context of their relationships. I view symptoms and problems as originating from -- and being maintained by -- problematic interactions between people, versus within people themselves. This is a profound shift away from pathologizing models. My clients find me to be open, warm, accepting, active and educational. You can read comments from former clients here.
