About Me

I am a Mental Health and Addiction therapist licensed in Ohio and South Carolina with over 15 years of experience . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including addiction, trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self harm and family counseling. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse. I have worked with adolescents, those in addiction, and adults.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in humor in treatment as well. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and dialectal behavioral. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. My hours are 8 am to 4pm Monday through Friday . I have different hours for sessions and those include nights and weekends. Please visit my schedule. I have times and days blocked out for those who need special times like early morning, evenings and weekends. Please ask so I can open an appointment. I am very accommodating to scheduling.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

I look forward to my sessions with Nancy. She is great at her craft. I am thankful for our therapy sessions! You are appreciated, Nancy.

We started seeing Nancy after she was recommended to us by a friend of ours. I’m so thankful for her. After almost 2 years of trying to find the therapist that works for both of us, I feel we have finally found that in Nancy. She’s kind, patient, understanding, and goes back and forth between us to ask the hard questions that are necessary in therapy. Her humor and personality make for a welcoming environment to any couples trying to work on themselves in any point of thier Union. I’m so thankful for her.

Nancy, is truly the best therapist I have had. She really digs deep, is there for you and your partner, and really dials in on the issues and very straightforward about it. She has helped us so much in these past 6 months. You will not regret having Nancy as a therapist if you are ready to dig deep and get to the root of your problems.

Sometimes we need to talk to someone to who won’t judge us, who isn’t in our daily life to correct our perception of things. Nancy has been that for my son, non judgmental and caring, she has helped him learn to open up and get things off his chest.

Finding a right therapist has been the longest journey for me. I have never felt like I “clicked” with anyone until I found Nancy Reali. I am so thankful for every session I’ve had with her. She has helped me learn things about myself that has greatly improved my anxiety, PTSD, and childhood trauma. She is so genuine, caring, knowledgeable and an overall amazing therapist!!

Nancy is the first therapist I’ve worked successfully with. Nancy is down to earth, funny, friendly, perceptive and quick to offer different types of resources to approach a problem. I loved the flexability to do both messaging and video chats.

Nancy is very kind, and I found it very easy to talk with her from day one. Her easy going approach to therapy makes it feel like I am talking to an old friend and I really appreciate that.

Nancy is fantastic, the cost of the therapy and typically only being able to schedule 2 a month when the cost is more than 2 in person sessions with my insurance it’s rough.

Written by E.D. on Oct 14, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

I absolutely love Nancy! The first therapist I was paired with did not mesh well with me! Since talking with Nancy my life has changedn I know it sounds cheesy but she really has changed the way I think about myself and my life! She has raised my mind and taught me the right techniques and tools to cope and deal with my every day! I can’t say enough good things about Nancy!! I have recommended teen counseling to a lot of friends and family and had a bunch of people sign up!!!

Nancy puts me at ease and is very calming. She understands my needs and is always kind and respectful. We also get to enjoy some laughs at times.

Can’t thank you enough!

Written by C.A. on Sep 29, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Nancy is very personable and kind. I was very nervous to start counseling and after my first session with her I felt great and comfortable to open up to her.

Written by A.N. on Sep 27, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

She knows exactly when to give some tough love to give me a push in the right direction. Yet she’s also so kind to help me recover from my situation. Eventually, I see exactly things she’s warned me about and it helps me gain a better understanding of my situation and my reactions.

Written by K.E. on Sep 15, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

One session in and I am very pleased! Nancy created a safe space and was able to facilitate a great dialogue that I think quickly got to some of the issues (even one's I hadn't thought of ahead of the session!). I look forward to our next session!

Nancy is awesome. She listens, understands, and even gives me homework that I don't mind doing. She has really been a big help to me.

So far Nancy had helped me realize so many things about myself. As we continue to work through this tangled mess of emotions I’m confident Nancy will be the best human to help. She’s sweet and caring and really listens to you. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Words can never fully express what Nancy had done for us. Every word in her bio is absolutely true! My husband and I found our love, strength, and trust back.
She heard us through many many tough times and handled it like the pro that she is.
If your thinking of choosing her i would go for it!

Thank you so much Nancy! Such a blessing to us ❤️

Nancy and I immediately clicked and I felt that she listened and understood my needs quickly. There was also a quick progression of these are the steps we can take to address the roots of the problems. I’ve really enjoyed talking with her, and on top of everything her schedule is super accommodating.

Highly recommended

Written by A.S. on Jul 10, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

My first attempt at counseling did not go as I imagined and unfortunately I did not feel very comfortable with or confident that the counselor I had was a good fit for me. However, I did not want to give up so I did what was necessary to get paired with a different counselor; that is when I was paired with Nancy Reali.

I must say that Nancy makes counseling very easy for me! I look forward to having my counseling sessions with her! I’m able to be very open and honest, knowing that no matter the situation or topic being discussed, Nancy will hear me and give me great healthy advice. I also love that Nancy gives me great tools to help me, help myself , on this journey called life!

I can tell that Nancy is a sweet and genuine person that truly wants to help me. I definitely recommend and speak highly of her!

Written by M.A. on Jul 09, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 months on issues concerning family conflicts, and parenting issues

Nancy has been a huge help to me in working through my issues and offering sounds advice.

Written by A.J. on Jul 03, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and anger management

Nancy is awesome!!!!! Helping people is not just a job for her but a passion. She genuinely cares about each and every person she helps. She respects you for you no matter how different you are from what most would consider normal. I was fearful of being judged because I don't live a normal life, but there was no reason to worry. Nancy accepted my life from day one. I honestly can't say enough good things about her. If you want someone who truly cares and wants what's best for you Nancy Reali is the person to talk too!!!!

Written by T.A. on Jul 03, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

Nancy Reali keeps it real and honest to include much laughter which is needed to lighten the moment! Phenomenal approach to some pretty serious topics. Thank you

I appreciate her willingness to jump into my chaos of thoughts and help me find what has been lost within. I have only met with her once so far because of scheduling but I have hope .

I love this woman so much she’s so nice and those messages of her checking up on you really help a lot

I was nervous before my first session with Nancy. Yet, within minutes...I was able to relax and openly talk to her. I have only had one session but I am excited for our future sessions. She explains things wonderfully!!

We have only chatted for a half hour so far and i feel extremely confident in opening up to Nancy. She is very much what i was looking for and comforting enough to help me break down my walls.

Nancy has been really good as my counselor! I'm trying to get approved for more sessions since I should have had a 5th one but the teen counseling platform thinks I already had it and is asking for payment. It won't even let me message her so I'm leaving a review to let you know. Sorry! I was ready for the session and logged in and it really wouldn't let me continue or even communicate without putting in payment. I'll be trying to get re-approved and reschedule. Sorry for the missed session!

Nancy Reali understands trauma and has a genuine interest in supporting me. She knows her stuff and is a sincere listener. So far, she has helped me understand my why. She made me feel confident that counseling is going to help me to feel like a more complete person and unbury issues that I've buried my whole life. My hope is that this will help me live a more joyful life and I believe Nancy would be the best person to help me in this process.

Written by D.A. on Apr 26, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I absolutely LOVE Nancy! She is personable, professional, and has not once "chosen a side". Both my husband and I would agree that she has been a perfect fit to meet our counseling needs! Highly recommend Nancy!

Love Nancy!!!

Written by D.A. on Apr 20, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 weeks

Nancy is unlike any therapist I’ve ever had. She not only listens, but digs down deep to the main thing that’s been going on in your life. She can find patterns in you that you haven’t understood yourself, and will help guide you in the right direction. She challenges me to get outside my box and ask questions. She is the most incredible therapist and person I’ve ever met. I absolutely love her and recommend her 100 percent!

Nancy is very easy to connect with. Her personality and sense of humor make it comfortable to open up throughout the conversations. The resources she shared have been very helpful and I look forward to continuing to work with her.
