Nancy MacGregor, MA, ATR-BC, LPC, ACS
Nancy believes in the power of the therapeutic relationship, and that everyone has the strength to improve his or her relationship with the world, given the opportunity. In her practice, she utilizes traditional therapeutic and creative therapeutic approaches, which allow for an open dialogue between client, self, and therapist in a non-threatening way. This approach can be effective in learning new coping skills, communication skills, and identifying areas of conflict and strength. Nancy focuses on implementing immediate skills to manage current issues as well as focusing on how to break past patterns of self-defeating thoughts or feelings and where those patterns may stem from. She provides a safe and comfortable environment to explore and learn and from which move forward.
Nancy received a BFA from the University of Arizona and is still an active artist. She received her Master’s degree from Drexel University, where she also taught graduate students for ten years. She is registered and board-certified by the American Art Therapy Association and holds the Licensed Professional Counselor certification in the states of New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She is a nationally accredited supervisor and presents at local conferences and workshops on a range of topics. Nancy is an Honorary Lifetime Member and former president of the Delaware Valley Art Therapy Associations and is also the recipient of their “Excellence in Supervision” award.
Nancy knew she wanted to work with the Harmony Bay team as soon as she walked through the doors for the first time. She believes in their philosophy of honoring everyone in their process with dignity and unconditional support.
