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 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.

Why are you passionate about providing mental healthcare?
Change is always possible. At any moment in time, you can decide to be better, do better, feel better. Nothing is cooler than watching someone commit to themselves and make positive change. I am honored to be a witness to the process.
