About Me

Reaching out for help can be scary. I aim to make that process a smooth one with support and encouragement. I am a Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience as a therapist. My clients come to me with a wide range of concerns, such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, illness in themselves or a loved one, and much more. What I see time and time again that they have in common is a feeling of powerlessness. Whether it be over their symptoms, their family members, relationships and even themselves. I help them to understand themselves and their circumstances more fully. Working together in a warm, supportive therapeutic relationship, we collaborate to regain some of that power back, making changes in one's circumstances, life and ones' self, at their own pace. My therapeutic style is eclectic, drawing on several theoretical perspectives, but always tailoring to the needs of each person I work with.

I hold degrees from Fordham University and SUNY Stony Brook in psychology and social work and also work as an adjunct professor in addition to my counseling practice.
My clients often describe me as down to earth and approachable, perhaps because I treat my clients the way I would hope a family member in need would be. I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can be of help.

Nancy is awesome. She listened and understood the issue and encouraged me to express my feelings, something I have rarely done or feel comfortable doing. She also encouraged me to use strategies to do so. She also followed up to check on me. I am thankful for her support and highly recommend her services.

I came to speak with Nancy at a time when things seemed such a mess that I couldn't imagine how they'd improve. Her knowledge and calmness helped me see things more clearly and begin to navigate the waters almost immediately. I have gained more insight into my challenges than I anticipated at the outset and am encouraged in a greater confidence that I will be able to move through them successfully.
