Tracey's Jerusalem Post Articles and Related Links   —   The Sobar: Tracey's Youth Music Center Project


Letter from Mr. Shabtai Levitt, Director of the Jerusalem & Ashdod Methadone Treatment Centers

Where to turn, who to turn to, who can help me figure things out and hold my handů Tracey is a wonderful resource center for helping sift thru the maze of services available today for kids at risk and their families. On both a professional and personal level, she can be a great connector between you, your child, the authorities and community services available.

  - Sharon Voss, MSW

Tracey, you were among the people who saved my life. I am so grateful for all you have done!

  - A young man addicted to drugs and alcohol for over 7 years who started his journey to freedom with Tracey

I really want to thank you for helping us pull through a very intense crisis in our lives. You gave us support when we felt we didn't have any and you taught us a tremendous amount. I really hope that Sobar plans are moving forward and that your incredible energy is helping young people all over Israel.

  - A grateful mother

I want to let you know how very much I appreciate your helping my grandson and me through his crises and intervening in the numerous "emergencies.". He is a totally different person than the one who came to live with me a few months ago. As for your working together with us, you've truly been amazing, and we couldn't have pulled through without you. Again, Tracey, thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

  - Grandmother of an addicted young adult

Tracey helped me and my daughter to greatly improve our relationship by teaching us communication skills and helping my daughter to express her issues and to feel comfortable communicating with me in an honest way. She has a great rapport with teens and I highly recommend her.

  - Mother of young teen

Tracey Shipley has such a powerful sense of reality and understanding for the complex relationships between children and parents, teenagers and their complicated world. Having worked with Tracy on rebuilding my relationship with my son and daughter and helping them through difficult behavior and worries, I have started to see a change in both of their attitudes and mine. Tracey has enormous professional experience and integrity. She works with the parent and the child sympathetically and patiently, recommending changes in communication skills and language skills, life style, diet and general behavioral issues at home and at school.

  - Mother of two challenging teens

Tracy helped me and my mother be much more open about our feelings. my life feels a lot more organized and less stressful.

  - Young teen in counseling

I have observed Tracey Shipley interacting with children, teens and young adults in a variety of settings. I am also aware of her vast personal experience negotiating services for youth in this country. She is extremely knowledgeable on many fronts, technically and interpersonally. And more importantly, she is also 105% committed to helping young people develop and improve their life situation.
