About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with dual master's degrees in psychology and social work. I have been in the mental health field since 1993 and have experience working with clients dealing with several issues including depression, anxiety, medical/health issues, social issues, family, relationship and parenting challenges, military and veteran issues, and trauma (including abuse and neglect).

My approach tends to be client centered and relaxed. I view the client-therapist relationship as a partnership where we walk together on this journey to discover the tools and assist the client in learning to utilize them so that the client can live a happier, more fulfilling and successful life. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, functional family therapy, solution focused therapy and tools from motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care in my sessions. Drawing from these modalities, I am able to shape each client's treatment plan to fit their situation according to their needs, challenges, strengths, and personalities; by doing this it allows for a unique therapeutic partnership that sets us up for success.

I am happy you are here! It takes courage to ask for help, and you've taken that first important step - congratulations! I look forward to working with you.

Nancy has been so amazing and accommodating, always willing to work with my schedule and work through issues that I'm having. She listens and is patient which I appreciate greatly! Overall, I've loved my experience with Nancy so far!

It’s all such a wild concept for me - what felt like 10 minutes ended up being almost an hr in reality. And to think I’d never see the day where I’m actually kinda bummed out that speaking to a “stranger” was coming to an end.. and shockingly brought THIS much comfort (and surprisingly, not drained out either!) Before ending the session, I’ve already booked for another - AND. I. CANNOT. WAIT! Nancy is amazing and I’m glad I made the right choice. The voice and tone Nancy carries feels very familiar and warm. I love Nancy! Keep doing what you’re doing, because you’re SLAYING it! ✨❤️

Written on Oct 17, 2023 after therapy with Nancy for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Nancy is an excellent therapist. Our sessions always felt like a supportive conversation with a trusted (and qualified lol) friend. I really appreciated how she shared aspects of her life with me to help explain her points, that’s what made it feel like a real conversation and not a one-sided therapy session. Granted, this is my only experience with therapy so all I know is what I see in movies! Either way, Nancy was personable, funny, and extremely helpful.

Has been a great help. I feel I’m changing and she has helped me realize it.

Nancy offers more than just a recap of what you say or simple follow up questions. She digs deep and offers understanding, explanations and tools to help you. I immediately felt comfortable with her!
