She is particularly interested in trauma and has over 5 years of experience in working with victims of torture and sexual and gender biased violence. Nancy also worked in clinical and academic settings: She was a counsellor and the focal point for trauma therapy at the Behman Hospital and offered counseling and holistic wellness workshops for students at the American University in Cairo, which received positive feedback and were featured in the University newspaper.
Nancy is an integrative therapist, working with people who feel the need for support as they navigate through life changes, as bereavement or separation, and who may be experiencing anger, loneliness, anxiety, emptiness or sadness. Beyond labels attached to human experiences, Nancy works to have an authentic alliance with her clients to help them build their resilience and healthy coping strategies. She conducts sessions in English and Arabic.
