“I started working with Nancy in my search for a way to cope with a family member’s addiction. Having never sought therapy before, I didn’t know what to expect or if therapy was for me. What I found in her was a powerful ally in both my struggle to understand the external challenges that life was presenting me and in building up my own internal fortitude to manage this and many other circumstances in my life.”

“Nancy & I have been working together for about 2 years now & I’ve seen wonders in improvement with my addiction problem as well as my personality defects. She never gave up on me through all the lies and relapses due to my disease. She has been nothing but understanding and patient and steady throughout the whole process. She is very easy to talk to and makes me feel comfortable divulging deep emotions that I rarely even admit to myself never mind another human being. She has utilized many different techniques in my treatment from meditation to aroma therapy. All aspects of my life have improved from my marriage to my family life as well as being employable now. This is much due to Nancy and her patience as well as believing in me when I didn’t believe or love myself. She helped me get into a treatment facility when I needed it and followed up with me when I came home. Nancy helped me get my life back and I am grateful for everything that she has done and continues to do for me. I am honored to have her as my counselor and even more honored to call her my friend.”

“Nancy is an excellent therapist. Immediately upon meeting her, I was taken by her warm and welcoming manner. We started speaking six months ago. I was depressed and indecisive despite being on medication. My life changed with Nancy’s help. As a result of our sessions, I have made decisions that enabled me to make positive changes in my life. Nancy is insightful, compassionate, sincere and caring. It is my privilege to have a client/therapist relationship with her. I am thankful for Nancy and happy to give her my highest recommendation.”

“I absolutely love Nancy, she’s helped me in so 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 consider Nancy & her son family and could not / would not be the man I am today if it was not for her help. I’ve been working with Nancy for a little over three years now and every time I see her I uncover more things about myself that I have tucked away into a small corner of my brain 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 she is very knowledgeable on the subject and is passionate about what she does and that is what makes her a rock star therapist.”

Michael M.

“I researched a number of therapists before I came across Nancy’s information. She had a long list of impressive credentials yet also seemed more approachable than others and I felt at ease reaching out to her. Working with Nancy has given me the space to feel safe and supported while working through some tough stuff that had me feeling stuck in a loop of negative, unhealthy behavior and relationship patterns. I’m happier now than I’ve ever thought possible and have attained more positive relationships while also feeling the freedom to let go of negative relationships. I can’t imagine what my life would look like if I had never met and worked with Nancy. What I do know is that I have a better relationship with my family, I’ve been able to accept and let go of things from my past, and I’m now happily married and even more happily a Mom.”

“She is fantastic and I highly recommend. Would never go to anyone else she really helped me through a rough time in my life.”

– Jenn S.

“I would highly recommend Nancy to anyone. She is a warm caring therapist who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She has helped me tremendously!”

– Rob Z.

“Nancy and I first met a number of years ago when she provided counseling under my insurance plan. I consider myself very fortunate because no other professional has been as insightful, knowledgeable, or compassionate as Nancy. When she moved her office too far for me to continue, I needed to find another therapist. None of the ones I tried were in her league. Eventually, we were able to resume therapy. I have always been impressed by her dedication and her continuing interest in furthering her education/knowledge in her field.”

– Abby

“After going to therapy for a few months, Nancy opened my eyes about taking care of a bigger issue that I was not aware of. I was traumatized at 16. And felt stuck since then. I couldn’t move on, the emotional pain only grew worse. Nancy assured me that EMDR will help heal my emotional wounds and allow closure to take place. The result? I feel I grew a lot and found answers to questions that I have been asking my entire life! Nancy, the experience was life changing! Thank you so much for everything! May God bless you for all that you do!”

– Diana Y.

“Nancy is a rare gem. I began seeing her about 2 years ago & I cherish her insight & expertise. She skillfully helps me make critical connections to my present from my past that have alluded me for many years. Nancy is easy, affable, compassionate and so very smart! I’m very fortunate to have her.”

– Heather D.

“Amazing, caring, superb experience… a life changer. She brings you back to you… promotes your essence of who you want to be, not who you were. Look no further than Nancy!!!”
