Nancy is incredibly insightful, thoughtful, and encouraging. Who know how much I needed and when to push me to try harder. I really appreciate all her encouragement and kindness.

I have been talking with Nancy over a month and she has helped me a lot. She has a lot of expertise and has patience to listen to you. She is the best.

Couldn’t have been paired with a better angel than Nancy. She knew the combination to my lock that I’ve been working on picking for 40 years. Therapy should be based on this therapist if not it’s shorting it. As far as I concerned she saved me not from suicidal tendencies but giving up on me. Under this blue sky I swear better help was my last option and she showed up. I thought I roll her over. She’s the steel destroyer and the soft cotton ball when she knows which you need and everything in between.

Can’t say enough.

Nancy goes above and beyond for her patients. She always gives plenty of time per session and is 100% supportive. She is extremely experienced and very caring. She is very easy going and just as insightful. I can't recommend her enough.
