The people behind Bickford & Covington, one of the best psychology clinics in the Inland Empire

Dr. Tracy J. Covington

Traveled an eclectic path, pursuing many interests before finding her passion in the field of psychology. Upon completion of a Master’s Degree followed by a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, she began her career as an Assistant Professor and Staff Psychologist at Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC), Department of Anesthesia, in Southern California. During her tenure at LLUMC, she enjoyed opportunities integrating psychological concepts with a diversity of chronic pain conditions and life-threatening illnesses. This included the creation of Transitions, a clinical support group specific to young adults challenged by severe health conditions such as cancer.
With her life and business partner, Dr. Kurt Bickford, she developed a rehabilitation center for the treatment of chronic pain and stress conditions where she developed and utilized an inter-disciplinary approach, now a standard in the industry. Opportunities to share this treatment model and research were offered at both national and international levels. Her private practice of 30 years has been a composite of services including psychotherapy, applied physiology, executive and organizational coaching, collaboration on professional monthly seminars, a monthly radio show, and a variety of publications emphasizing consciousness, psychology, temperament, and the possibilities of the human endeavor.
Ever on the cutting edge of treatment, Dr. Covington has further expanded her practice to offer Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), which is the single biggest development in the field of psychology since Prozac became available 30 years ago.

​Dr. Covington is a licensed Clinical Psychologist who is Board Certified in Biofeedback and holds a Diplomate in Pain Management.

So many try to tell me… “I was spanked… and I’m fine (better for it; I do it to my kids………)"When I was a child they left me crying alone until I fell asleep and it was so bad I did not go out," said the man who spends long hours in social networks, affecting his sleep."They punished me as a child and I'm fine," said the man who, every time he makes a mistake, says to himself words of contempt, as a form of self-punishment."As a child, they put a heavy hand on me and I suffer from a trauma called 'education'," said the woman who still does not understand why all of her partners end up being aggressive."When I became capricious as a child, my father locked me in a room alone to learn and today I appreciate it," said the woman who has suffered anxiety attacks and can not explain why she is so afraid of being locked in small spaces ."My parents told me they were going to leave me alone or give me to a stranger when I did my tantrums and I do not have traumas," said the woman who has prayed for love and has forgiven repeated infidelities so as not to feel abandoned"My parents controlled me with just the look and see how well I came out," said the woman who can not maintain eye contact with figures of 'authority' without feeling intimidated."As a child, I got even with the iron cable and today I am a good man, even professional," said the man his neighbors have accused the police for drunk hitting objects and yelling at his wife."My parents forced me to study a career that would make me money, and see how well off I am," said the man who dreams of Friday every day because he is desperate in his work doing something every day that is not what he always wanted."When I was little they forced me to sit down until all the food was finished and they even force fed me, not like those permissive parents" affirmed the woman who does not understand why she could not have a healthy relationship with food and in her adolescence came to develop an eating disorder."I thank my mom and my dad for every blow and every punishment, because, if not, who knows what would happen to me," said the man who has never been able to have a healthy relationship, and whose son constantly lies to him because he has fear.And so we go through life, listening to people claiming to be good people without trauma, but paradoxically, in a society full of violence and wounded people.Copied and shared.It's time to break generational trauma cycles. If this resonates with you research gentle parenting & peaceful parenting to build a relationship built on trust, love and guidance.
