About Nancy Auster

In my 30 plus years doing counseling and psychotherapy, I’ve developed a respect for our innate resilience and our ability to use life’s challenges for growth

My clients find their way to becoming calm, confident and hopeful.

I can help you get there too!

Talking with a counselor about issues that trouble us is inherently helpful, it is even more helpful when combined with methods that create calm and develop greater awareness of our emotional/physical self.  EMDR creates a relaxed and focused state so that we can look at what bothers you more easily.


You'll find me a down to earth, receptive and interactive listener.  I'll encourage you to express yourself freely; to be an active participant in your counseling process.  Our work together can make you calmer and more hopeful.

I’d like to hear from you about your particular situation to determine what kind of therapy process will work best for you.

I look forward to meeting with you.

Something About Me

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy Yoga and other physical disciplines.  I’ve found that whatever I’ve learned outside the office improves the work we do together.  I’ve become aware of the integration and power of our mental emotional and physical selves; that positive intention and positive feedback motivate us.
