"Thank GOD for you!! I know that this is your natural God given gift- but I can't believe you put together a guide like that in under an hour for her social. We spent literally 3.5 hours on it and created a huge story. She totally gets it now. After the final quiz, she goes what would I do without Nancy?! " (Mother of an 8th grade client)

I was in search of a more balanced life when I began working with Nancy. I was exhausted with the demands of work and trying to maintain a household. I didn’t make time for myself and needed support to make lasting changes. With Nancy’s help, I set goals, learned how to ask for what I needed at work and at home, developed healthy habits, and tracked my success. Nancy held me accountable, shared her wisdom and insight on how to minimize daily stressors, and provided honest feedback, guidance, and encouragement. I’ve had such a positive experience working with Nancy one-on-one and I look forward to attending future events and workshops. Thank you Nancy for helping me create more peace and balance in my life!
