Nancy Adams is registered as a Psychologist (Candidate Register) by the Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology. She has a B. Sc. (Honours) in Psychology from Dalhousie University and an M.A. (Counselling Psychology) from Trinity Western University. Nancy has worked in private practice in Nova Scotia for two years. Prior to that, she interned for a year at a community mental health clinic in British Columbia.
Nancy works mainly with adults. She has experience working with: depression, anxiety, worry, workplace stress, low self-esteem / assertiveness, obsessive-compulsive thoughts and behaviours, life transitions (such as retirement), and trauma. She has a particular interest in pain (acute or chronic) and traumatic brain injury, such as after a motor vehicle accident.
In therapy, she draws on several approaches (cognitive-behavioral, emotion-focused, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and solutions-focused) to design & implement the best treatment for each client. The goal is always to help clients develop the skills they need to help themselves, now and in the future.
