Nancy received her undergraduate degree at Georgetown University.   After working in mental health in Boston, Nancy obtained her Master’s degree at Smith College.  Having discovered her love of working with children, adolescents and their families, Nancy continued post-graduate training at the Graduate Center for Child Development and Psychotherapy in Los Angeles.

Nancy has been working with children and adolescents since the 1980s, when she began working at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She has an ongoing private practice in psychotherapy since that time.  She has also supervised several Master’s-level social work students.

In July 2009, Nancy began to volunteer at HOLA to provide counseling services to students at HOLA.  During that year, HOLA forged a relationship with Cal State Los Angeles Master’s in Social Work program, and Nancy supervised two students for their academic year. During that year, the counseling department worked with over 110 students and 26 families.  Nancy is now on the staff at HOLA, and is hoping to develop and expand the counseling program with the assistance of graduate students in the field.

Nancy is married and the mother of two teenagers, one of whom has volunteered at HOLA.  When she is not working, Nancy hikes in the canyons of Los Angeles, practices yoga, and sings with the Metropolitan Master Chorale.
