About Me

Over the years, Having lived throughout the country and overseas, Nancy garnered an abundance of knowledge, wisdom, and insight. Longtime military spouse of 26 years afforded the opportunity to work with varied communities and populations of all ages (early childhood – elder). For nearly same amount of time Nancy has worked in the field of social work having worn many hats and filled many roles. During the course of the last several years Nancy has functioned as a clinical social worker, providing treatment in the states of KY, TX, and now most recently FL. Nancy established her own private practice (Certus Counseling Center, LLC) upon arrival to FL. Specialities of treatment include anxiety, depression, other mood disorders such as Bipolar, and trauma.

Nancy has been wonderful over the past few weeks! She’s already given me techniques that I’ve been using every day that are beyond helpful. She’s super personable and kind as well!
