|Prior to working with Nancy, I was struggling with much anxiety over a new relationship. Immediately, during and after our sessions, I was relieved from the tools I used on my own, especially in situations that had previously caused me great difficulty. Also, Nancy is patient and very compass- ionate. She is neither a drill sergeant nor a softy – but right in the middle. She holds you accountable for your own progress, and still gives you positive support and encouragement if you don’t always put into action the things that were talked about.
The results I achieved from working with Nancy are amazing: better communication in my relationships, more confidence and improved ability to ask for what I want and need, the ability to distance myself emotionally to help gain much-needed per-spective, an overall calmer approach to relationships, the knowledge to determine that the relationship I was in wasn ’t meeting my needs (and to feel good about that rather than questioning it over and over), the feeling that I will be able to recognize, much sooner and in a more objective fashion, in future relationships, whether this person has the ability and desire to meet my needs.

|My sister came to see you. She and her husband have completely transformed their relationship — it is like night and day! I wanted you to know how much you helped me and my relationship with my husband. You helped me change the way I deal with people and how I let people deal with me... I'm a lot more assertive and especially with my children. Thank you so much! Take care!

|For a number of years, now, I have assisted people to reach for, and eventually achieve, their goals and dreams. As their Life Coach, Psychotherapist, or Yoga Instructor, it has always been my privilege to participate in their growth and vision achievements. The venue doesn’t matter… being present, being the catalyst, and watching my clients grow move into their true authentic selves – that’s the pleasure and the thrill of my work. By using the training and experience developed over the years while working with individuals, families, couples and groups, I gladly offer to you ways to:
I have a deep respect for your unique differences that make you who you are. You and I will work together as a team We’ll develop a tailored approach for you to resolve your life issues, minor and major. We do this in a confidential atmosphere, either in person or on the phone. You have a sense of safety that allows you to express your innermost desires and dreams. Together we face the blocks or stuck places that have kept your limiting beliefs about yourself in charge when you didn’t want them to be! Then you are in a position to heal and grow into who you were truly meant to be! This reflects my philosophy about helping people. I am passionate about the time I spend with you and will advocate for you to move forward, take action and to be your very best... In my practice, I have worked in many different settings including hospitals for children and adults, home health agencies, hospice, adult drug and alcohol recovery, adult day health centers and corporate environments.
