Has "life" impacted your self esteem and how you navigate your day to day? Do you have the desire for change but not sure where to start? Does having the support to help you navigate the depression and anxiety sound like a relief? My goal is to meet you where you are and to push/support you to become a more confident version of you. We get stuck. We subscribe to others expectations. We can operate with a negative filter. We compare ourselves to others. We deserve more, we are more and together we can obtain more. I look forward to helping you uncover what is holding you back from being your best.

It's a difficult task finding a therapist that you think will be able to understand and meet you where you are. That's why I use a client centered approach, tailoring evidenced based approaches around your specific and unique wants and needs. I have extensive experience with individuals who have symptoms related to ADHD, adolescent/teen issues, depression, life transitions, relationship issues, self-esteem, stress management, and PTSD.

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who enjoys working with individuals of various ages (5 & up). Assessment and therapy can be useful ways to better understand one's strengths/challenges at each developmental stage. Students today can face an array of struggles from lack of motivation to anxiety/perfectionism. School-age children may encounter difficulties with learning and self-regulation in the classroom. Adolescents are figuring out who they are, while navigating the ever-present world of social media in a safe, healthy way. Adults typically strive to function at their best in numerous realms, often feeling unsuccessful or overwhelmed.

A good clinical match would be those seeking clarity related to life decisions, transitions, or relationships, those trying to overcome anxiety or depression, improve their self-esteem, or come to a place of contentment with their lives. I really enjoy working with college students or other adults on the cusp, or in the midst, of life changes.

If you hurt emotionally, or you're stuck, I will help you get the quickest possible relief from symptoms and achieve your personal goals. I assist you to overcome habits that negatively impact your relationships, performance and self-esteem. Often this involves learning to perceive and use information that you are unaccustomed to noticing. I'll help you connect to and use new, productive responses to loss; abuse/neglect; other traumas; life transitions and adverse circumstances. I am skilled in treating anxiety, panic, PTSD, phobias, compulsions/obsessions, phobias, depression, bipolar disorders, and relationship problems. For more information go to nancyreder.com.

You're a badass go-getter, motivated by working towards your life's goals, but something feels stuck or slows your progress. Your life is mostly together, but you're dealing with anxiety, low- self esteem , or negative self-talk pretty regularly. Maybe you feel like it's hard to form relationships with others around you. There's a chance social media makes you feel inadequate. Maybe you still feel or notice the effects of a trauma in your past. You've considered talking to someone about these things before, but therapy always seemed drastic or a little too extra. (I promise, it's not!) Email or call if this sounds like you!

Life can be difficult. If you feel like you're overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, and can't seem to find happiness, I'd like to help you find some balance in your life. Your willingness to explore your thoughts and feelings about yourself and unhappy situations in your life can be extremely empowering. I work in a warm, collaborative, and interactive manner to help guide you toward two primary goals--first, to identify and resolve the immediate problems presented, and then to develop psychological tools that can be used after completion of the therapeutic sessions.

Life can be difficult, and having good support is essential. Therapy can help you to feel heard and understood, and provide you with a space and supportive listener to help you navigate the challenges. You do not have to struggle alone! I might be a good fit for you if you: are a survivor of trauma of any kind; have gone through something that continues to impact you negatively today; struggle with feelings of worthlessness, low self-esteem, and powerlessness; find yourself stuck in unhealthy or unhelpful patterns in your life; deal with shame and guilt, and more.

I help adults, teens, and couples who are caught in unhealthy and unfulfilling patterns and want guidance and support in the process of changing. These patterns can take the form of low self-esteem, indecisiveness, procrastination, anger, anxious feelings, negative thinking, addictive behaviors, or unhealthy relationships. My clients are not looking for anyone to fix them, including myself, but in the process of therapy many clients gain confidence in healing themselves and living their lives with greater agency, conviction, and self-compassion.

As a solution-focused counselor/coach, my treatment approach is to provide support with insight and feedback to help women address current challenges and self-esteem issues. My specialty area is truly unique but well received by my clients. I take a less traditional route of counseling/coaching and recognize that how we feel on the inside manifests itself on the outside.

The purpose of therapy, as opposed to just talking with a friend or family member, is to facilitate personal and professional growth. This growth is typically most needed in the areas of relationships, mood, performance and an overall improved integration of one's identity and values. In order to make growth possible, one must feel safe in an objective, confidential environment. My primary goal is to offer a safe and supportive place for change. Throughout the entire process, I will encourage, guide, challenge and support you in making the changes you deem to be right for you.
