Nancy has helped me navigate my depression and anxiety and take better decisions in my life. She is comprehensive, very responsive and proposes solutions that match my growth. I can see my progress in life through her advice.
Beth is a caring and compassionate therapist who has a great set of ears and uplifting attitude.
She is great.
She’s amazing and Very supportive
Nancy is friendly, kind, and always remembers specific details about my life. I have spoken with her regularly for about a year now, and I am always surprised by the detail she is able to remember about the things I have told her. She is also very accepting of different types of lifestyles (queer, poly) and I have never felt judged by her whatsoever. I have had a great experience so far with her as my therapist. If you want a compassionate ear to listen to your struggles, definitely choose Nancy.
Beth is really helpful and kind. I look forward to our visits.
She’s a great person to talk to, I’m glad i found Nancy on here
Great experience! Highly recommend
She has helped me cope with so much. I am very grateful to have her as my therapist.
Nancy has been amazing, very professional very friendly and just a great person to chat to, highly highly recommend!
Beth is a beautiful spirit. A definite shoulder I have cried on. Im physically in pain and she puts up with mood swings and is kind.
Love Nancy and my time with her. She has helped me understand my self worth and prioritize myself and my needs over others. I trust her expertise completely and would 100% recommend her to anyone who is seeking help navigating relationship issues and low self esteem issues.
I’ve been working with Beth for a few weeks and the impact she’s had on my wellbeing has gone beyond what I thought possible. She’s helped me gain the perspective I needed and has been so helpful in surfacing and connecting insights across different areas of my life. She’s also been really sensitive to certain challenges we face in the LGBT community. In such a short time, I’ve grown to feel lighter and hopeful, and I look forward to continue working with her. This has been my first experience seeking therapy - I’d genuinely recommend Beth to anyone!
I love Nancy’s energy ! I feel comfortable being open with her in a judgement free zone
I've been working with Nancy for a month now and I really look forward to our sessions every week. I feel extremely comfortable with her, I feel like I can tell her anything that is on my mind and she always listens. She's great at relaying what I have told her and applying it in a larger picture to what is going on in my life, and I have confidence that I will continue to be able to grow in all areas of my life with her by my side! I am a part of the LGBTQ community and I would highly recommend her to anyone else from this community who may be feeling nervous about the person that they choose to work with.
Nancy has been a wonderful person who has helped me get through a really rough patch on my life. She has been positive throughout, given me good life tips, and has always listened to me. I recommend her to anyone going through relationship situations and more.
I really look forward to my weekly chats with Nancy. She makes me feel safe and comfortable to share and be open and honest while also giving me helpful feedback.
Beth is insightful, compassionate, brilliant, and absolutely one of a kind. I never thought therapy could feel this way - comfortable, joyful, and easy. I swear I wholeheartedly laugh AND cry in every session. She remembers EVERY single thing I bring up in our sessions and then takes what I say further - filling in blanks, connecting dots, picking up on patterns, and helping me understand my own life narrative in a fresh and healing way. I just can't believe how lucky I am to have found Beth and can't wait to keep diving deeper into this important work of detangling the negative thought patterns that underpin my anxiety, perfectionism, and inner critic.
Nancy is absolutely wonderful. Kind, caring, easy to talk to and offers great, non-judgmental advice. I’ve really enjoyed our sessions and looked forward to every single one.
Totally down to earth and very, very helpful. Seems to be able to assess what is going on VERY quickly (took only a few appointments) instead of months to get to the real issues.
Beth has been such a positive influence on my life in the past few months! She pays attention to the tiny details in my life, and is always engaged in our conversations. She is my champion! She truly has my best interests at heart, and has helped me break through some walls with self-esteem. I am so grateful to have been paired with her!! I look forward to our weekly sessions, and anybody would be lucky to have a therapist as compassionate and fun as her.
Nancy helps me so much, I love my sessions with her.
The sessions with Nancy are very helpful - she is able to help me with her vast experience and expertise and is able to convey her message and information to me in a way that is to grasp and understand - even in emotionally challenging situations. I highly recommend her as therapist.
Nancy is very personable and inclusive to LGBTQ+ individuals, I feel very comfortable talking to her!
Nancy "Beth" is a fantastic person to spend time with and talk about issues facing your day to day life.
Nancy is amazing. She is the perfect combination of listening/talking as a therapist. Its so important to have someone that you feel comfortable with especially in a virtual setting and from the beginning of the conversation, she provides that comfort. I was hesitant to try virtual therapy but it has been the best decision I've ever made.
Shes my favorite so far! Always leave a session thankful that shes there to listen and observe
Nancy is super attentive and helpful.
I appreciate being able to speak to a counselor who understands the impact chronic autoimmune issues have on everyday live. I've gained a great deal of perspective since working with Beth and have overall benefited from therapy.
Nancy is personable, really listens and cares about my situation. She definitely knows what she’s doing and is a great conversationalist
Nancy's therapeutic approach comes with alot of skill and experience.
Nancy is as real as they come so down to Earth, has the patience of a saint and talks to you like a person. Easily the best councillor I’ve ever spoke to.
10/10. Hands down.
She is kind, warm, and understanding. She checks in weekly and I appreciate her perspective!
Nancy is kind, a great listener, and incredibly interested in things I enjoy. She makes me feel seen and heard. I appreciate her help.
Nancy is a great counselor!
