Tracy was previously on the faculty at Tulane University in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science, at the University of Chicago’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neuroscience and at Erikson Institute in the Department of Infant Studies. Her clinical and research interests involve the intersections between perinatal and infant and early childhood mental health. Tracy is trained as a trainer in IoWA-PCIT. Tracy researches constructs central to these areas including perinatal depression, anxiety, and PTSD, parenting self-efficacy, as well as cultural and community adaptations to evidenced-based treatment approaches. Her current applied research projects include piloting a parent-infant play and psychoeducational support group with her colleagues at the Children’s Museum of Denver, WePlay Denver, and replicating a telebehavioral health model of perinatal and infant and early childhood mental health services, Parentline, in Colorado with an emphasis on treating underserved populations including Spanish-speaking and rural families.
