Individual Therapy

In a caring, supportive, non-judgmental environment you can feel comfortable expressing yourself and sharing your concerns, thoughts, feelings and goals—whatever they are—whatever is bothering you. In therapy you can focus on yourself. You can feel heard and understood. I will listen, lead you to find answers, provide you with tools and strategies, and help identify creative solutions to overcome your struggles and challenges.
Psychotherapy is a process where the therapist helps you gain insight, understand better the patterns in your life, clarify and overcome obstacles to your having what you want in your life and see and use your strengths to become more of your “authentic self”.
You can see yourself in a new light with new insights, new ways of being, new found hope and maybe a sense of freedom or control since now you have more tools and choices in your life. The goal is that you discover a stronger sense of well-being, an ability to connect more fully with others, and be more at peace with yourself in the present moment.

Clients come to therapy when they are experiencing any of the following feelings:

  • Anxiety or fear
  • Grief and sense of loss
  • Low self-esteem
  • A feeling of confusion about life’s goals
  • Loneliness or sense of isolation
  • Social Anxiety
  • Worry
  • Anger
  • Sensitivity to criticism or rejection
  • Shame
  • Sadness

  • Stress

Some clients need help with:

  • Navigating a difficult time
  • Changing careers
  • Handling relationship challenges

  • Overall dissatisfaction with some aspect of their life
Based on your needs and presenting issues, I can use various evidence-based therapies which can include CBT, ACT, DBT and others.

Testimonials

Nancy is wonderful and has had a big part in helping me get through a tough time in my life. She is nonjudgmental and very easy to talk to. She offers practical ideas to help solve problems, and if something doesn’t work, then she comes up with a different solution. She understands the uniqueness of each individual and that a one size fits all approach will not work for everyone. Because of Nancy’s assistance I have significantly increased my confidence and my life has improved in a multitude of ways. She offers great career advice as well! I definitely recommend her!

I came to see Nancy after experiencing a lot of anxiety and worry about my life and because I had been engaging in some really negative behaviors.  Nancy worked with me to understand my anxiety and taught me how to put mindfulness and a form of meditation into practice which helped me with my anxiety. I was then able to understand why I was doing what I was doing and make changes in my behavior that made me feel better about myself. She has really been one of my strongest advocates.

I never went to therapy before and I was battling anxiety and depression for quite some time before I decided to try and get help. I did my research and came across Nancy. After reading her reviews I decided to give it a shot. I was so anxious and nervous going to talk to a complete stranger about things I’ve never shared with anyone else. She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable that I forgot I was talking to someone I just met. She has helped overcome my anxiety and depression and has also saved my relationship with my boyfriend to the point that we’re engaged now! Nancy is very calm and understanding and will help you with any issue you might have. I’m so thankful and blessed to have found her and she is continuing to help me be the best version of myself!

Career Counseling

A note for those of you who are changing careers or jobs. 
Clients typically see me for career counseling or coaching because I have been a career coach for many years for outplacement firms and on my own; have recruited for hundreds of positions and have headed up human resources for a variety of organizations. 
I help individuals assess or reassess their career goals; create a successful job search strategy; and a resume that will market them more effectively for the position(s) they are targeting.
For individuals that are having problems at work with the work itself, colleagues, their boss, other interpersonal relationships, communicating, I provide coaching to increase awareness, build skills and increase the likelihood of success.
Please call me at (914) 288-5219 for a free consultation.

Testimonials

After graduating college I wasn’t so sure about what type of job I should get or how to go about getting that job. Nancy helped me throughout the entire process which included personality/aptitude tests, resume and cover letter writing, finding leads, interviewing, and negotiating offers. She helped me build confidence in an area that I found very nerve wracking. Not only did she provide great advice, but she was also very compassionate and understanding of how someone’s first job search can be scary. I’ve been at my first job for over a year, and I thank Nancy for helping me help myself to get here.

Nancy is an amazing counselor, H/R professional, and career coach. I have used her in all three capacities. Her career counseling helped me land my VP-level job. She worked as my new company’s head of HR and made seminal changes to increase employee satisfaction and retention. And I sent a young, underprivileged young woman to her to successfully learn how to come out of her shell, win a job interview, and get her first job ever in the workplace. Nancy is a gem with her depth of experience, sharp expertise, and lovely personality.
