Nancy Pounds, LPC

Counselor: Adults, Couples

Nancy has a passion for helping adults and couples navigate the stressors and issues that inevitably come up in life. She sees the world through a psychodynamic lens, which means she believes events of the past directly influence the present. She uses a combination of CBT, logotherapy, EMDR, and Hypnotherapy to help clients discover deeply held beliefs so they can be examined and challenged to create a happier, more confident self and lead to more fulfilling relationships. Nancy is EMDR trained and certified in Hypnotherapy. She employs a collaborative approach to counseling and views clients as experts in their own lives. Nancy emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between counselor and client and sees this as the foundation for successful healing. She has extensive training in the area of trauma, grief, and crisis, and her focus includes self-esteem, boundaries, PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
