Nancy has been very helpful. She is kind, caring, considerate and offers well thought out advice and solutions in timely matters. I’m very appreciative of her help.
In my newer interactions with Nancy, she’s been nothing but attentive and helpful. She listens and responds appropriately and I feel like she cares enough to listen and follow up with me during the week with little messages to check-in. I’m enjoying my time I schedule with her and feel a sense of relief and glad I shared with her afterwards. I’d recommend Nancy to anyone looking to share and grow through whatever challenges or peaks of life they are going through.
I love working with Nancy! She’s been very empowering, very compassionate and very understanding. Whenever I text or even video call, I know she’ll be there for me and that she’ll provide me with an insight that will help me find my way. I’ve been really appreciative of this counseling services and I am so very glad I made the decision to do counseling. It’s an investment in ones health. I’ve been on psychotic meds for a whole decade and while medications numb the pain, they do not resolve it. Counseling does! I am definitely continuing to work with Nancy. :)
Nancy DiStefano not only gave me the tools to get rid of my anxiety, she gave me the tools to do it while in a relationship. It has been a mind blowing experience that I didn't believe was possible.
Nancy is a patient and kind counselor who is supportive and flexible. She checks in to ask me how I am even if I don’t check in with her myself, which I really appreciate.
Nancy is one of the best counselors I've ever had, and I have had many. She's very down to earth and in touch with me emotionally. Our sessions are always productive and thought-provoking. I highly recommend Nancy to anyone who wants a forthright, no-nonsense approach. If you don't want to think and talk very honestly about yourself, find somebody else. Nancy is going for the truth to really help.
Nancy is fantastic. She really cares and is very responsive. I am so lucky to have her as my counselor!
Nancy is great!
Nancy is an excellent counselor. She listens to me and makes me feel validated and understood but still pushes me to be better. She checks in on me when I don’t message her and makes me feel appreciated and loved. She has helped me be independent and grow so that I am not solely reliant on her.
Nancy has been really great! She has been really responsive and so non-judgmental. She doesn't just allow me to vent, but actually helps me to problem solve. I would definitely recommend her.
Nancy is always available to help, even with short notice. She often sends quick messages to check up on me throughout the week which are so helpful, and remind me to ask help when I need it. She is very personable and kind.
Nancy was super helpful and was always understanding. I have a very busy career but Nancy never failed to check in on me just to make sure I was doing okay. I would recommend her to anybody who needs someone to always be there for them
She helped me through one of the most difficult transitions in my life. And helped me conquer a few lurking demons in my mind! She is fantastic! Thank you so much!!!
She's a very sweet woman who listens to you and helps you understand your own self and figure out the issue within yourself.

Nancy it's amazing! Looking after me so well, and if I don't write to her for few days she always drop me a message. Love it! Very helpful for me, work like magic!!
Nancy has helped me get to the root cause of my issues and teach me the skills I need to overcome my issues. I have been to many counselors without getting any help, but this experience has been life changing. She counsels in a nonjudgmental manner, but also makes you confront your problems. I am very thankful that I was finally able to find the help I needed.
Nancy has been great at getting to the root of my concerns and offering real advice on things to try. I appreciate how she makes me feel heard. I think that’s something I’ve truly needed and what makes counseling so important to me.
I have absolutely loved working with Nancy so far! She is relatable, patient, and gives great advice. She’s helped me through some tough times and not matter how many times we go over the same scenario she is patiently responding. I would recommend her to anyone going through difficult times.
I’ve been working with Nancy for a few weeks now and I feel like I have connected with someone who is kind and empathetic. I feel comfortable sharing everything with her and I highly recommend her as a counselor.
