My daughter recently starting counseling with Nancy D. Ross Rivera and the experience has been positive. Nancy provides suggestions on how to approach a topic.

I am totally grateful for this app and Dra Nancy. I had some issues in the past that I thought were really big problems, but with Dra Nancy's help, her calm voice, love and desire to help me I was able to overcome those issues. I a forever grateful for the job that Dra Nancy did and I am 100% sure that if I ever need therapy again I can only wish that I could be treated again by Dra Nancy. Thanks for everything Dra and probably a life won't be enough to thank you for all the help that you provide me and the great work you have done.

Nancy is an excellent counsellor. She is very client-focused, not only she is supportive, she also guides me to a better path. After every time I speak to her, I feel lighter and I feel heard. Would recommend her to anyone that wants to understand themselves more and wants self-improvement!

She listens and she helps me make sense of things. She's God-sent.

Written by M.A. on Mar 13, 2021 after therapy with Nancy D for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Nancy has been a very empathetic and nurturing guide while also being brave and well-spoken enough to confront you with your own choices, past and future, and in doing so, making you feel self-empowered.

Written by M.R. on Dec 11, 2020 after therapy with Nancy D for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Working with Nancy has provided me such clarity and direction in THE MOST CHALLENGING TIME OF MY LIFE!!

She is level headed and provides sound unbiased counsel. She challenges me to look at things from a different perspective.

She also emphasizes the value of self care which is an area I definitely did not prioritize before.
When she hasn't heard from me in a while she always reaches out letting me know she's thinking of me, asking how I'm doing and lets me she hopes all is well. This makes me feel that she genuinely cares.

I highly recommend Nancy D Rivera as a counselor!

Nancy has been very empathetic and has understood my issues well within the first session. She has provided support and comfort and has given me some very useful insights to help improve my self awareness. Her conversation style is very understanding and her advice is pragmatic. I would highly recommend.

Nancy is an excellent counselor who truly listens with her heart. She has a valuable insight and gives feedback that makes sense. It is obvious how much she cares about helping, I am glad I have had the opportunity to be Nancy’s client. She really opened my eyes to some new helpful techniques to help me move forward where I was stuck.
