My intention as a Counselor is to be present and compassionate with someone who is courageous enough to choose to change their life for the better. I can assist you to feel more in control, have increased self-understanding and insight, and realize that looking at the challenge directly is much easier than avoiding it. This can give you the opportunity to be able to tell the truth and feel heard and understood. This will lead to feeling more hopeful, and optimistic that things can change. I am a great coach and counselor for that.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has practiced in Colorado and Hawaii for 28 years. I have worked with all ages , diagnoses, and concerns, and my specialties are in trauma resolution, stress, depression, and anxiety. People feel safe with me and find it easy to open up and receive support. I have a calming presence and can give you tools to apply that can immediately make a difference with the symptoms you may be experiencing. It gives me joy to assist someone to feel more empowered and more in charge of their life. Being able to find your inner guidance and know what you really feel and want and get help to achieve that is a game changer. I believe every session provides the possibility of a breakthrough even when confronting painful issues. I always try to end on a positive note, with ideas of how to move forward. I can consult on many topics of concern, including medical, psychiatric, alternative healthcare, and self care as I am also an RN. My passion is in studying healing, and love Neuroscience and the latest brain research and what really is important to heal our moods and to self regulate. I am an EMDR trained therapist and use EFT as well. I am qualified to teach mindfulness, meditation, and can draw on Spiritual traditions that are such a resource in healing. I would be honored to talk to you about what concerns you.

My therapist has been instrumental in guiding me towards becoming my best self, uncovering new opportunities, and resolving inner conflicts. With her as a sherpa, I've noticed a significant boost in my energy levels, confidence, and overall contentment. Despite tackling heavy topics, our sessions are infused with whimsy and delight. She's been a key figure in my personal growth and emotional well-being.

Being paired with Nance has been incredibly life giving. She is truly gifted in showing empathy and understanding through her words, but also extends honesty through our sessions which I deeply appreciate. Nance also is very knowledgeable in the science behind the way our bodies respond to trauma, and helps with regulation of those emotions encouraging true healing within. I have made incredible progress in just a few short months and look forward to our sessions every week. I can't thank her enough!

I have had about 3 or 4 sessions with Nance and I am very happy to have met her. She is clearly very skilled and compassionate and she takes initiative in the session to help guide discussion - something I could not find with other online therapy formats. It is not a problem, whatsoever doing tele-therapy via video when the therapist is skilled enough to guide therapy. I am very satisfied with Better Help and Nance, thus far.
