She provides individual and couples counseling, workshops and group therapy. She focuses on anxiety and mood disorders; marital, relationship, and transition issues; and specializes in helping mothers with postpartum depression and perinatal mood disorders. She is pursuing her interest in writing and is currently a contributing writer on the subjects of health, wellness, and everyday living for newspapers and magazines.
Nancy enjoys practicing yoga, entertaining in their home, collecting antiques and flower arranging. Together, Nancy and Jack share a love of travel, snow skiing, biking, and are diligently working on improving their homemade cupcakes.
