Nancy Risner, MSW, LCSW, CGCS; Therapist


Nancy Risner

There is no book that tells us how to navigate life or how it will turn out, and sometimes we are faced with unspeakable tragedy and hardship.  What you encounter and how you process experiences are unique to you; no two people will experience life in exactly the same way.  But that doesn't mean you have to face it alone!

We will work together to help you understand your triggers, build coping skills, enhance your resilience, overcome obstacles, and increase life satisfaction.
