Negotiating relationships with family, friends, partners and ourselves can often be challenging. Nancy’s goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space to help clients identify disruptive patterns in their lives, explore historical and present-day issues that are getting in the way of finding contentment and help clients form new and satisfying ways of improving communication, authenticity, intimacy and a sense of well-being. Nancy has experience working with adults, adolescents and couples and her approach is engaging, accepting and warm.
