Dealing With All Stages of Life

“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.”


Wise Counsel

“Nancy was a great help to me in unburdening a lot of emotional baggage during counseling sessions. I was having problems in my marriage, doing a lot of worrying to the point of exhausted depression, and basically trying to solve a lot of things on my own; with not much success. Through Nancy’s expert and wise counsel, she helped me see things that were a part of my personality that I needed to try to change. I always felt safe and in good hands knowing that she wasn’t going to push me in weird directions of change. I came to value her insight, because it was evident that she listened well to things I had shared, and found her analysis very useful in looking at my own patterns and habits. I also found her advice very solid and when I did the things she asked me to try, I was rather amazed at how they changed my perspective to a healthier one.


As a Christian woman, I really appreciated talking to another Christian woman that I knew had some vintage life experience, about problems and deep hurts that I did not want to dump on my friends or family. Nancy is funny, caring, and tactful with her honest evaluations, and I found myself mulling over things she would tell me to consider—at odd times, between sessions. I attribute much of that to the work of the Holy Spirit. The sessions I had with Nancy were ended in prayer. That act of asking God’s blessing on whatever had been discussed was central to whatever healing might come. And, in many ways healing did come. Nancy was very instrumental in bringing that about, and I am confident that she agrees with me to give God all the glory!”


Above and Beyond

“Nancy is someone who is absolutely amazing to work with. I definitely recommend her to anyone. She goes above and beyond, and I feel strongly that she is more than capable to do what she can to help me. I continue to learn different techniques, and I feel these are tools that I will use throughout my life. They have helped me immensely.”


A Journey of Self Discovery

“Nancy consistently demonstrates the gift of discernment and the practice of empathy. Her ability to guide you to a place where you can hear your heart’s voice and see a path toward peace is rooted in that practice. If you are ready to embark on a journey of self discovery, I wholeheartedly recommend Nancy.”


Anniversary Gift to Ourselves

“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.”


Uplifted by Prayer

“Nancy Peterson has been my counselor for about two years. It is very easy to talk with Nancy. She is a good match for me. I was looking for a Christian counselor and Nancy definitely fits that category. I feel uplifted by her prayer at the end of each session and also other scriptural references as they are appropriate to the topic. I appreciate Nancy’s positive attitude. She always wants me to succeed, so we work at setting realistic goals that are reachable. If I don’t meet a goal, Nancy is still very encouraging and helps me try to discover why the goal wasn’t met and helps to reset it so it will be a positive experience. ‘Baby steps’ is her motto. I originally came to Nancy for help with a long-term weight issue, but have discovered and worked to resolve other ‘problems’ along the way. She has also helped me see the connection between some of these other issues and my weight. Nancy is also very flexible. When I was unable to come for appointments after some medical issues, Nancy was willing to do phone sessions with me. I look forward to my sessions with Nancy and hope to continue to work to become a more ‘healthy’ person.”


Helpful and Reassuring

“Nancy has been so helpful and reassuring since she started seeing our daughter five months ago. What I love the most is that prior to my daughter’s sessions, she takes time to speak with me about events that have taken place from one week to the next. She takes notes and follows up on any concerns that I bring up. My daughter is very comfortable with Nancy and looks forward to their sessions. Throughout the course of the week she can refer back to the skills and discussions she has had with Nancy to help her make decisions or process how she’s feeling. Nancy also goes above and beyond the call of duty. We had an untimely death in the family and we were unable to go to our scheduled session. In order to accommodate us, Nancy conducted the session over the phone. As a Minister/Family Advocate, I frequently refer women and families I serve to Nancy for counseling. Everyone who I have referred has been pleased with the services they have received as well.”


Compassionate and Insightful

“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.”


An Incredible Help

“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!”


Honest and Valuable

“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.”


Desperately Needed

“Without Nancy’s help, our marriage of 21 years was headed downhill fast. She was able to help us find and understand the real issues behind the problems we were having, and we are learning how to overcome these issues now. Things are going so well that we fully believe our marriage will be better than it’s ever been. Nancy has been especially helpful during ‘crisis’ situations that our marriage has had to overcome and has even prayed with us over the phone at a time when it was desperately needed. She also will close the session with a prayer, if you so desire, and these prayers have always left us feeling better than when we leave, no matter how hard the session was! We highly recommend Nancy to any marriage in need of a little (or a lot!) of help.”


Finding Peace and Contentment

“I have struggled my entire life with overwhelming anxiety and lack of healthy boundaries. I recognized I needed help and had three different counselors from high school through college. While two of them were nice, it was not until after college when I found Nancy that I felt my counseling sessions were truly effective. After a few months, I could tell her input and advice was making a difference in my life. Nancy has helped me to drastically decrease my needless anxiety and set healthy boundaries in various areas of my life. She helped me realize that a lot of my anxiety stemmed from feeling guilty about almost everything—even if it was completely out of my control. By recognizing that I often have false guilt, Nancy has shown me that I can take a hold of my anxiety and not allow it to dominate me. This has brought me a great amount of peace and contentment in my life that I had been lacking before.


After a year of her counsel, Nancy became someone I trusted entirely. As a result, when my marriage was on the verge of a divorce, I did not hesitate to seek her advice. She helped save my marriage. Her counseling with my husband and me allowed us to heal in a healthy way, both as individuals and as a couple. Her ability to help each of us see the flaws and goodness in ourselves, and in each other, made it possible for us to learn how to work through our marriage. Nancy was a major factor into making our marriage whole again. Our marriage is now stronger than we could have imagined, thanks to her.


Nancy has become family to me. I talk about what I have learned from her all the time with my friends, co-workers, and family. Being open about my how she assists me on a regular basis, has made it easier for me to be open about my struggles. This openness has allowed me to find a strong and compassionate community that respects and promotes self-care and mental health. Furthermore, Nancy is dedicated to her faith. This is another major reason why I enjoy having Nancy as a counselor. She allows me to see my struggles through God’s perspective and helps me to see how my mental wellbeing is something God values. Adding a Godly perspective to self-care has helped strengthen my faith by giving me a new outlook on how God loves us and cares for us. I am amazed by how Nancy’s counseling has allowed me to be healthier overall in my life, and I am grateful for everything she has done for me.”


New Life Together

“Many years ago, when my husband and I were first married, we had trouble adjusting to our new life together. We needed help as we weren’t able to constructively handle our problems alone. Nancy provided direction and clarity and helped us navigate through these issues. She helped me specifically by validating my feelings, which I had previously been unable to discuss.


More recently, I had to make a decision, which left me in turmoil. I couldn’t sleep or think about this decision with clarity and carried around a heavy load of anxiety. Nancy helped me to sort through my thoughts and feelings and immediately brought light to my dark thoughts, and I was able to make a decision without regret. I highly recommend Nancy. She has been exceptional and trustworthy counselor.”
