About me

I have been a licensed clinical social worker/therapist licensed in Pennsylvania for over 25 years. I have had the opportunity to work with children and families, young adults as well as the elderly dealing with varying issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, dealing with societal and environmental stressors while in facilities such as hospitals or nursing homes as well as in the community. These issues often interrupt our daily lives and can feel debilitating. However, when one has a trusting therapeutic relationship with someone who cares, one can work towards a path to appropriately manage these issues.

My counseling style is interactive, empathetic, and warm. It is my belief that listening is the key to success in a therapeutic relationship and every client that I serve will feel heard. Being treated with dignity, respect and compassion are also the tenets that I abide by and will display that in every interaction and intervention. My approach combines strengths therapy, cognitive-behavior therapy and solution-focused therapy to ensure that the highest level of outcome is achieved as outlined by a treatment plan that will be tailored to your needs.

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

I look forward to working with you!

Nancy is a kind, knowledgeable and thoughtful therapist. She has been a great guide as I explored my codependency. She gave me useful resources to learn more about codependency and begin to heal and move beyond a lifetime of codependent behavior to start anew and build healthy and meaningful relationships and appreciate and love myself.
