In her practice, Nancy customizes her approach to ensure that it is most effective and supportive to each individual client. This allows for an open dialogue between client, therapist and self in a non-threatening way and can help the client learn new coping skills and communication skills, as well as identify areas of conflict and strength. Nancy guides her clients in applying these newly acquired skills to address current issues, recognize root causes of past patterns of self-defeating behaviors, and develop plans for breaking these patterns. She provides a safe and comfortable environment to explore and learn, and from which to move forward.
Nancy was an adjunct professor at Drexel University’s College of Nursing and Health Professionals for 10 years, where she taught graduate students. She is registered and board certified by the American Art Therapy Association (ATR-BC) and holds the Licensed Professional Counselor(LPC) certification in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. As a nationally approved clinical supervisor (ACS), she provides affordable, effective clinical supervision (group and individual) for new professionals. She presents at local conferences and workshops on a range of topics.
