My Approach

Nancy Porter

Over the years of working with individuals and groups, I continuously  witness the innate potential for healing and transformation that lives within all of us.  At the core of each individual, there is a reservoir of strength, wisdom, and well-being.  Therapy leads us right there as healing begins and obstacles start to dissolve.  It’s a very natural process that begins to unfold once we are willing to face our fears, heal our wounds, and discover the deeper truths within ourselves. 


I have dedicated my professional life to help people reduce their dissatisfaction, struggles, and suffering,  while empowering them to claim their strengths, their talents, and their unique abilities to live a more fulfilling and rich life.


There is no time like the present to benefit greatly from therapy.  This, in part, is due to the vast amount of research in neuroscience that has made way for a deeper understanding of human beings, more effective therapies and the benefits of  life-long changes.  These therapies take into account how the human brain and nervous system are wired and how it can be positively rewired.  Really!  Research is now showing that trauma, negative incidents, looping thoughts, and painful emotions, etc. actually get stuck in our nervous system.  We begin to identify with them as being who we are when actually these are "issues, states of being, unresolved aspects or events in our life." They are not who we truly are, they are only what we have been carrying around with us as burdens, sometimes for years.  Traditional “talk-therapy” or “talking about” does not release these burdens.  Mind, body and emotions are deeply interconnected.  If we miss one of these aspects, we cannot heal completely.


This is why I combine the heart, soul, and science of therapy, which includes many of these relatively new  and more effective therapies.  Thus, we can gently and more effectively remove any obstacles, patterns or pains that are keeping you stuck, dissatisfied or even suffering.


We all hold the keys to our personal growth and healing.  I view my role as a guide or facilitator to help you move from feeling stressed or lost or struggling, to finding your way with clarity, purpose, meaning, and ease.  You are never alone.  We are in this together.
