Nancy Reali


About Me

I am a Mental Health and Addiction therapist licensed in Ohio and South Carolina with over 15 years of experience . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self harm and family counseling. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked with adolescents, those in addiction, and adults.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in humor in treatment as well. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and dialectal behavioral. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My hours are 8 am to 4pm Monday through Friday . I have different hours for sessions and those include nights and weekends. Please visit my schedule. I have times and days blocked out for those who need special times like early morning, evenings and weekends. Please ask so I can open an appointment. I am very accommodating to scheduling. My schedule looks full but many times have been blocked to meet the needs of clients. Please ask.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I love this woman so much she’s so nice and those messages of her checking up on you really help a lot

I was nervous before my first session with Nancy. Yet, within minutes...I was able to relax and openly talk to her. I have only had one session but I am excited for our future sessions. She explains things wonderfully!!

We have only chatted for a half hour so far and i feel extremely confident in opening up to Nancy. She is very much what i was looking for and comforting enough to help me break down my walls.

Nancy has been really good as my counselor! I'm trying to get approved for more sessions since I should have had a 5th one but the BetterHelp platform thinks I already had it and is asking for payment. It won't even let me message her so I'm leaving a review to let you know. Sorry! I was ready for the session and logged in and it really wouldn't let me continue or even communicate without putting in payment. I'll be trying to get re-approved and reschedule. Sorry for the missed session!

Nancy Reali understands trauma and has a genuine interest in supporting me. She knows her stuff and is a sincere listener. So far, she has helped me understand my why. She made me feel confident that counseling is going to help me to feel like a more complete person and unbury issues that I've buried my whole life. My hope is that this will help me live a more joyful life and I believe Nancy would be the best person to help me in this process.

Nancy is unlike any therapist I’ve ever had. She not only listens, but digs down deep to the main thing that’s been going on in your life. She can find patterns in you that you haven’t understood yourself, and will help guide you in the right direction. She challenges me to get outside my box and ask questions. She is the most incredible therapist and person I’ve ever met. I absolutely love her and recommend her 100 percent!

Excellent warm personality and I feel she has good experience and knowledge of situations.
