About Nancy

I am a licensed Marriage, Family & Child Therapist in private practice in San Anselmo, CA. since 1991. I have always been interested in the intersection between psychology and spirituality, and in learning to live the ‘spiritual life with practical feet.’ I practice Vipasana – insight meditation. I gain inspiration for my work in a number of ways – poetry and literature, hiking, gardening, watercolor & collage. There are many who have influenced and taught me through their good work. Among those are Carl Jung, Joan Chodorow, Victor Frankl, James Bugenthal, Sue Johnson, Bonnie Badenoch, John & Julie Gottman, Jack Kornfield, Helen Palmer, and David Daniels.
