Individual, group, family counseling
Nancy believes that everyone can increase their self-confidence and sense of calm, self and other compassion, quality of relationships, and goal achievement if given relevant tools, encouragement, compassion, acceptance, and authentic feedback. The client-therapist relationship focusing on establishing an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan, immediacy and compassionate listening, astute questioning, psychoeducation, and medical referral, when warranted, can empower a person to move toward goals and increase life satisfaction. She employs an existential approach with a reliance on experiential techniques as well as cognitive-behavioral strategies, motivational counseling, and brief contractual therapy.
Throughout Nancy's career, she has counseled and developed programs for students at all levels including elementary, middle school, high school, and college. Special programs she has been involved with targeted teen substance users, sexual assault and trauma survivors, and failing students. She found that human vulnerabilities can give rise to immense positive power. A particular joy of her career has been working with unique students, families, and professionals that span diverse cultures, economic levels, and world perspectives. She has respect and gratitude for those with whom she has connected throughout these endeavors.
