About me

I have been in the field of helping people since 1976 when I became involved with a juvenile first time offender and "ungovernable" youth program. From there, I have worked with children and families in a variety of situations. Throughout my 45 years of experience, I have been a licensed medical social worker where I worked with home health/hospice; as a hospital based trauma, surgery, and orthopedic social worker; and as an in patient, intensive outpatient, and general outpatient psychiatric social worker. The combination of skills has led to where I am now- a generalist with a vast array of experience and training. One area that I enjoy working with is persons in life transition. Often, life throws us a curve and the plans that we thought we had suddenly change. Life's circumstances can be rewarding and also cruel, leaving us confused, stuck, anxious, sad, in a rut and not sure what to do. During some of these changes, we can get back on track and resume our course, but others may require a bit more adaptation and ultimately redefinition of ourselves. An example is when one becomes physically or medically disabled. The loss of identity, sense of usefulness, and belonging (to name only a few) can leave us devastated and asking, "WHY". I can't promise that I have the answers to life's challenges, but maybe, we can explore that journey, be it a new one for you, and come up with some skills to improve your coping with your life's situation. I believe that life is a journey, let's take it one step at a time.

Nancy is a good listener and gives sound, actionable advice that is able to cut through a patient's own mental trappings or worries about a situation.
