Nancy Walden, M.Ed., LPC, RPT, NCC
Children, Adolescents & Families
As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist, Nancy is very passionate about counseling with children. She believes that children oftentimes cannot express themselves through words. By using play therapy, she is able to build a trusting relationship with the child where they feel safe to express their needs, hurt, pain or frustration through their play. Through play, they work together to create positive ways to cope with, or work through their issue.
Nancy has over 15 years of experience working with children. She has had specialized training in play therapy, trauma and loss, and grief counseling. She also has had a lot of experience working with children who are experiencing difficulties with divorce, anxiety, academics, self esteem and other childhood issues.
In addition to 7 years as a school counselor, Nancy has had 13 years of experience as an elementary school teacher. She feels that having this “inside track” knowledge of the schools gives her a better insight to some of the difficulties facing today’s children. Taking the first step toward getting help is often the most difficult. Nancy looks forward to working with your child and making that first step as comfortable as possible for you all.
