Anxiety Counseling

Anxiety Counseling – Attempting to cope with anxiety alone can contribute to feelings of loneliness, hopelessness & despair. Discussing fears in a safe, non-judgmental environment can be key to reclaiming control over negative thoughts, feelings & behaviors. Nancy helps clients with a range of anxiety disorders.

Counseling for Depression

One of the worst things about depression is the sense of isolation and despair it can bring. If you’re suffering from depression, it is important to know that you aren’t alone & that there’s a way out of it. Counseling is a proven way of dealing with, and ultimately overcoming depression.

Gambling Addiction Counselor

Gambling Addiction Counselor – Gambling addiction is often combined with other disorders, such as substance abuse, depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder. Therefore, professional help for gambling disorders often focuses not just on the gambling behavior but the root causes of it.

Therapy for Opioid Addictions

Therapy for Opioid Addictions – We’re in the midst of an opioid epidemic. If someone uses opioids for a while, they develop physical dependence & tolerance. Addiction occurs when opioid use becomes compulsive & self destructive, especially when not using the drug for pain relief.

Therapy for Cannabis Addiction

Therapy for Cannabis Addiction – Most people think pot doesn’t yield addiction, but when one uses regularly and attempts to stop, irritability / depression / insomnia may occur. It may not be intense, but in order not to be irritable, the person uses again. This becomes a vicious cycle.

Gaming Addiction Counseling

Gaming Addiction Counseling – Many companies employ psychologists to keep players completely immersed. Addicts get “hooked” on achievements and milestones, leading them to play for hours without realizing the amount of time that has passed.

“I love Nancy, she’s helped me in many ways and I owe her my life & my zest to live life again. With her help in junction with my wife, I was able to overcome my addiction and get a handle on my life again. I could not / would not be the man I am today if it was not for her help. I’ve been working with Nancy for over 3 years and every time I see her I uncover more things about myself that I have tucked away and have tried to forget about. But by working with Nancy and uncovering those secrets, it has allowed me to grow and move past them fully. I strongly suggest to consult with Nancy in regards to any addictive behavior.”
