About Me

Welcome to Better Help and online counseling. Let's get started! I have worked over 25 years in private practice, hospitals, and outpatient clinics in New York City, Milwaukee and Atlanta. I received an MSW from New York University (NYU) and a BA from Indiana University. I provide individual and couples psychotherapy to people struggling with depression, anxiety, stress, conflict, grief etc. I have a wealth of experience as a therapist and coach, offering insight and genuine feedback. Clients appreciate my direct approach, yet compassionate style to achieve effective solutions. No problem is too big or too small.

Couples therapy sessions are expected to gain insight into the source of your problems. We will look at communication patterns, repetitive fight styles, strengths/weaknesses in your relationship, dreams within, intimacy issues, etc. We will also discuss new ways of coping and interacting, resolving conflict and developing the love you need. Sessions are also meant to bring couples closer by facing "tough and tender" topics that cause distance and resentment. Couples therapy requires commitment and honesty for it to be successful.

My hours are flexible to meet your schedule. We can meet as often as you like, depending on your goals and needs. Please feel free to ask me any questions and share any information that you find helpful. I look forward to working with you.

Written by M.I. on Aug 09, 2019 after counseling with Nancy for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

My wife and I felt like we were heading toward divorce. Troubles were growing and we didn't know how or where to start fixing things. This gave us a place to start and Nancy built upon our progress. Thank you so much!
