Dr. Tracy Barcott

About Me

Dr. Barcott works with children and adolescents, using a primarily cognitive-behavioral approach. She specializes in conducting comprehensive evaluations for autism spectrum (age 12 months and up), ADHD, learning and behavioral difficulties, anxiety, and depression, and she provides parent consultation and individual therapy to address these concerns. She also specializes in developmental evaluations for children age 3 and younger. Dr. Barcott has extensive specialized training and experience in using the ADOS-2 for diagnostic purposes. She also conducts Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) for parent-child relationship difficulties. She enjoys helping children and young teens learn how to manage anxiety and stress. Dr. Barcott strives to help children and parents better know and understand how their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors affect them, as well as how to make changes in these areas to increase their well-being.
