The road of life is full of twists and turns. Sometimes we lose our way and find ourselves wandering farther from our intended destination. At other times, we may find ourselves being forced to take an alternate path. My desire is to equip you with the skills needed to navigate that road successfully. Together we will discover the obstacles in life that cause you to stumble and find practical ways to overcome them.

My weekly session with Nadine is an oasis in a stormy week. I'm not the same person I was when I started. Change takes time, but the peace is spreading farther than just that one hour. I'm so grateful.

10 months of therapy with Nadine has been transformative. I appreciate the gentle way she helped me work through a laundry list of issues without judgment. Nadine is kind, approachable, thoughtful, and a great listener. I appreciate her more than I am able to express. Nadine has been instrumental in improving my life overall so I am able to be present in the moment with a peaceful and joyful heart instead of filled with fear and anxiety. Thank you, Nadine!!!

Nadine gives me an outlet to talk about my life and process things outside my head in a safe space. Sometimes I feel like I’m just chattering or venting, but she is understanding and nonjudgmental.
