Nancy Wallingford, MFT

Nancy WallingfordI am passionate about my work as a psychotherapist, in which I have the honor of accompanying my clients as they journey through the process of self-exploration, discovery, and profound personal growth. In my experience as a psychotherapist, I have acquired extensive skills through education, training, and practice.

I am an effective therapist who enjoys working with both individuals and couples. My work is informed by the latest research in the field of psychotherapy. In my couples’ work, I utilize Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. Research has shown that this approach to couples’ therapy has a very high success rate.

I have deeply meaningful relationships in my life, which I cherish and nurture. I have been in a loving, committed marriage for over 25 years. My children, family and friends have been a lifelong source of deep satisfaction and joy for me.

I have maintained a mindfulness and meditation practice for the past 25 years, and I practice yoga. These practices influence my work as a therapist.

My life has been a rich tapestry of experience. Through exploring both the shadow and the light, I have become a wiser, more whole person. I continue to learn and grow all the time. My own emotional, educational, and spiritual growth has helped me to become a more effective therapist and to better understand my clients. I am honored to share my clients’ journeys for a time and to guide them to create lasting, deeply fulfilling change in their lives.
