Get to Know Nancy

Selecting a mental health provider is a very personal decision. Learn a bit more about Nancy and what to expect when you or a loved one receive care with us at Covenant Family Solutions. Our mission is to unleash your potential.

Nancy Watson welcomes people of all ages. She especially has experience working with kids who have been through traumatic events. She believes it is important to have a safe space where individuals can talk about things with someone outside of their everyday interactions. Nancy aims to provide that outlet for them.

In addition to her experience with kids, she was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes as a young child. For this reason, she relates well with kids or parents who have chronic illnesses. Nancy also experiences anxiety, giving her perspective on how mental illnesses can coexist with chronic illnesses.

A genuine and compassionate experience

Nancy knows that having someone to talk to is just the first step. Having someone who will not pass judgement and who has an outside perspective is the next piece. This is where her role becomes crucial. Nancy is non-reactive, which allows people to open up about anything without feeling shame. In order to help others and develop a trusting relationship, she knows an environment needs to be secure and compassionate.

She adjusts her approach to the individual and what they are going through. Additionally, she doesn’t want the therapy experience to feel like therapy. For instance, she focuses on their unique situation while trying to promote happiness and fun along the way. She also values communication and believes there are multiple ways to accomplish a goal.

Intuitive with individuals

Nancy cares for the people she works with, and enjoys hearing everyone’s story. She is a very intuitive person and is able to pick up on small things. This is helpful when people are having a hard time communicating a feeling or emotion. Not everyone can process things immediately or clearly at first. When Nancy is able to help them see the full picture of what is going on in their life, she is able to help them make progress.
