  • Nancy is a very compassionate and insightful therapist who has helped me to work through issues from my past as well as to deal with current problems. As a Christian, I appreciate this perspective that she brings to our sessions. The emotional healing that I have experienced is a direct result of working with Nancy, and I will be forever grateful.

  • Nancy has been tremendously helpful to my husband and me. It was the anniversary gift we gave ourselves after 11 years of marriage. We often found we were still dealing with some issues we had when we got married. She was able to guide us toward solutions and see each other for who we are and not wrong or right. She has taught us how to communicate with one another again. I appreciated that Nancy closed each session with a short prayer that re-focused us on our own relationships with God.

  • I saw Nancy as a 10-year-old child and then again as a teenager. When I became an adult, I remembered how much I liked her, so I decided to see her, which says a lot about the impact she has had on my life. I have even taken my own child to see her because I knew Nancy could help her just as she helped me when I was young. Nancy has helped me transition through various parenting issues and job difficulties, and she helped me uncover the fact that I have struggled with Attention Deficit Disorder. I also love the relaxing and comfortable home atmosphere. My daughter would have been much more uncomfortable if she had come to a sterile office environment; it would have put her on her guard. I have referred many of my friends to Nancy. She is amazing and really good at what she does.

  • My husband and I started to see Nancy almost two years ago because of some serious family issues. With her help, we have learned how to deal with family conflict in a more healthy way—for us personally and for our family. It hasn’t been easy, and it’s been a lot of hard work, but very worthwhile. Nancy is always honest with us and has always offered valuable insight in how to deal with the situations that we are in. We have grown considerably in our personal lives, but also in our marriage.

  • I have to say that Nancy has been an incredible help in our marriage and in our individual lives. We started seeing Nancy approximately 15 months ago. Our marriage has gone from OK to great, and we are continuing to work on individual and marriage issues. Although we could actually be done because we have met all of the goals we started out to accomplish, we are hooked and are so excited about improving other issues in our lives dealing with work and parenting, that we have decided to continue on. I would highly recommend Nancy to any individual or couple who wants to gain insight into their life and improve it! Our insurance does not cover counseling, and although this has been a financial investment, we feel it’s the best investment we could have ever made. It’s provided us with excitement about growing older together!
