About me

Welcome to BetterHelp! I am an independent clinical social worker licensed in Massachusetts, with more than 25 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families. While my specialty is in adoption, foster care and early trauma, I am able to work with a broad range of concerns.

My style is strengths-based, warm and interactive. I am flexible in my approach, and able to tailor it to your specific needs. I draw on my training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Family Systems, Attachment-based therapy, ARC (Attachment, Regulation, Competency), Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and Solutions Oriented Brief therapy, and base my approach in compassionate listening. I believe in treating people with respect and dignity, and in protecting their privacy. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgemental and comfortable environment in which to explore new understanding, hope and direction.

It takes courage to reach out for help, and I'm glad you're here. I believe things can change and get better, and I look forward to working with you!

I have been working with Nancy for a number of months now. When I first came to Nancy, I did not know where to begin with our conversations. Over time we were able to see that much of what I was struggling with could be attributed to my childhood. Nancy helped me realize new tools to cope with different issues and was always super helpful to include some background studies and information as to why the tools and methods could help me. Through our time we created a narrative that we were able to walk though at the end of our time together to see just how much growth was achieved.

I can’t thank Nancy enough for all of her help.

I was in one of the worst places I’d ever been in my life when I started talking to Nancy. From job stress to a pregnancy loss, I didn’t know where to start. Nancy was without a doubt my saving grace. Together we worked through each piece of the puzzle and she helped me make connections I had overlooked, and allowed me to heal. Most importantly, she taught me how to be gentle on myself—a concept I never understood, or thought I even deserved. I am the happiest I have ever been and I’m so grateful that I had Nancy there to help get me to where I wanted to be. She is compassionate, funny, and determined, and truly an amazing person to have on your side.

I’ve only had a couple sessions with Nancy but I do feel great about how things are going so far. I know sometimes you have to talk to a few people before you feel a connection to someone but I immediately felt comfortable with her. It could be as simple as her kind face or just the tone I which she speaks but I do appreciate how she listens to me and offers subtle suggestions and or questions that help me reflect when our session is over. I just find it comforting to know that she is there in turbulent time in my life to offer help when I most need it.

When I started working with Nancy I was experiencing intense generalized anxiety that was causing all sorts of debilitating physical symptoms like lack of sleep and zero appetite. I had no idea what to expect in terms of the quality of counseling provided by Better Help but Nancy exceeded all of my expectations and more. In the span of just a few sessions I already felt like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders and after 6 months of working with her I’m truly thriving and feel like I have a new tool bag of tools to help me cope with my anxiety. Nancy is incredibly easy to talk to, asks great, poignant questions, and really helps you get to the root cause of what is causing your issues. Her approach is kind and warm and she offers both feedback and some scientific reasoning to help make sense of why we feel and experience things the way we do. Nancy helped me get back to feeling like myself and was a joy to work with. I truly enjoyed our sessions and highly recommend her!
