Tired of Struggling? Let me help!

We all need help in this journey called life. Whether you find yourself in recurring harmful patterns that are hard to break, going through a rough time with change, wanting to pursue a new goal, feeling stuck, or noticing that things aren’t the way you’d like them to be, counseling can help you break free and move forward. A counselor can offer practical assistance, support, compassion, a different perspective, and new tools and coping skills.

My goal is to assist my clients to know their own unique worth. I am passionate about personal growth and believe that we all have unique gifts that we bring to the world. Sometimes past hurt and feelings of fear, shame, separation, failure, or unworthiness get in the way. But, these feelings don’t have to hold you back. You have the power to move forward. I can help you develop the self-acceptance and self-compassion required to embrace it.

Sometimes, it can be difficult to know what we truly want; we often are aware of what we don’t want. If you are struggling to feel content or complete, I can help you identify and nurture your core strengths and real identity. Through open and honest communication you can release your inner ability to lead an authentic, courageous, and enjoyable life. Let me help you identify your strengths within and move toward a life you’d love to live.

What Clients Are Saying                               

Nancy helped me in processing letting go and loving well when my 18 year old daughter moved out with no notice. What impressed me the most was how she had the ability to draw out of me what I was looking for which was validation for my emotions and encouragement for my boundaries I chose to set do to the way my daughter left home. Nancy is without a doubt one of the best counselors I have ever met.
Nancy is very compassionate and has the training, plus life experiences, that can move you from stuck to living again. Her ability to get to the heart of the matter quickly and outline a clear plan of action were extremely helpful to me.  
I absolutely adore working with Nancy Ryan, she is warm, lighthearted, very empathetic, super intelligent and an excellent communicator. She creates a very comfortable and safe place for you to share any thoughts or issues you may be experiencing. Anyone would be served greatly to connect with her for both her services and networking. Thank you for being such a bright and vibrant spark Nancy.
We just wanted to thank you again for your time these past few weeks. We feel like we've accomplished so much with you, and talked about how much better this was for us than the church's required premarital counseling.  We look forward to talking to you again in the future!
I was so scared to pick up the phone and set up an appointment but I am so glad that I did.  I had never been to counseling and didn’t know what to expect.  You made me feel really comfortable and I began to want to come.  I see that little by little, I am getting better.
Your work with us has been the miracle that we had been earnestly praying for. I can't pinpoint a defining moment, but something has definitely shifted in our relationship. It has shifted and for the first time in many years, I feel connected to my husband. We certainly have more relationship work to do as we have only taken a small step. But it is a step that I am grateful for! Thank you Nancy! You are a blessing.
