About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 20 years of experience in just about every mental health setting. My specialty is in Trauma Informed therapy, working with clients with symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In addition to trauma and abuse, I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, compassion fatigue, grief and loss, issues with negative self-talk, motivation, self-esteem and confidence, family conflict, stress and life changes. I use an integrative treatment approach, focusing on the balance of spirit, soul and body, tailoring the method of therapy to your individual personality and needs. If you are seeking any kind of emotional healing or inner healing, look no further. I have a personal and deep understanding of the courageous journey you will take with this approach toward healing the wounds of the past.

I am patient and kind in the therapeutic relationship. I want you to "come as you are" and feel accepted and free to reveal yourself at your own pace. I know it is difficult sometimes to even know where to start on the healing journey, and I will meet you where you are. I have been described as a joyful person who creates a peaceful and safe space for vulnerability. I hope you take the opportunity to join me there.

Nancy is extremely compassionate and genuinely takes the time to listen to my concerns. She helps me navigate my thought processes and gives me the space I need to process things at my own pace. She is encouraging but also challenges me to dig deeper into my authentic self so that I can continue to develop a firm sense of identity. I appreciate her as a therapist so much.

Nancy is the absolute best! She is kind, gentle and incredibly insightful. She has this ability to understand and see the real ME, even when I can't. Working with her has changed my perspective and has given me so much hope for the future. Thank you, Nancy.

I really enjoyed talking to Nancy every week to help me with my struggles I’ve been having. It’s nice to have someone that has a different way of dealing with issues and getting to know their hometown.

Nancy is incredible! She is so gentle and her energy is very maternal in a healing and warm way. Nancy has already helped me see how softening and letting go of anger (which anger can feel empowering!) is a true form of healing from trauma. I really appreciate her approach and I enjoy talking to her. She is very open and I wish she lived in CA so I could have in-person sessions with her :) So happy I have signed up!

Nancy Kirby is very kind and a great listener. She is very patient and I find it really easy to talk to her about things I would feel uncomfortable sharing with anyone else.

Written by D.A. on Feb 07, 2022 after therapy with Nancy for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, anger management, and coping with life changes

Nancy is very supportive and eager to find ways to help me through my difficult situation. I feel better after talking to Nancy.

Work with me!
