About me

I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of South Dakota. I have 11 years of experience . I provide both individual and couples counseling In working with addiction I believe that it is important to address not only the addiction, but the cause the addiction, as typically there is also a mental health disorder. In addition to working with addiction I also work with individuals with anxiety, depression, grief, self esteem, and anger management and trauma. I provide couples counseling, focusing on communication, conflict resolution, parenting and intimacy.

I am eclectic in my therapeutic approach, utilizing Client Centered Therapy, Reality/Choice Theory, Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness, Attachment Theory and Acceptance Commitment Theory. My goal as a therapist is to find a therapeutic approach which the client and I feel will be the most beneficial.

There aren’t enough amazing things that I could say about Nancy. She is incredible. Nancy remembers every single detail I’ve ever said to her and that is so important for me because I feel heard and understood.

Nancy was dedicated, professional and engaged during our sessions. She had useful exercises and provided vital support when necessary. She can be candid and appropriately on point when needed and extremely understanding and non-judgmental. Competent counterpart when navigating an emotionally volatile terrain.

Nancy is always helpful and positive during our sessions. She listens to me and sets engaging tasks between sessions, which help me consider situations in a different light. When I encounter a problem during the week, I am always happy knowing that I can discuss it with Nancy during our appointment.

I feel like Nancy listens to and respects me, but also shares a personal anecdote when necessary to make me really understand what she is trying to get across/where she is coming from. She supports me during sessions and outside of them, as well as pushes me (in a nice way!) to continue to figure out what I need or will work best.

Nancy is pretty. Doesn’t beat around the bush. She will call me out on my BS. Flexible in ways of therapy that help. Keeps me accountable. I keep coming back.

Work with me!
