Nancy L. Sack Ph.D.
Dr. Sack has been providing psychotherapy services to hurting souls for over 20 years. From the beginning of my care giving journey, I have felt very honored to be given the trust of others as they share their inner world with me in a therapy session. I continue to feel honored when I have the opportunity to sit with people to help calm the stress of their life, reduce mental health symptoms, and ease the disquiet in their soul.
If asked to name my favorite word, I would choose the word Compassion. This word inspires peace in me because I see it as symbolizing that we can all only be where we are on our life's journey, we can never completely understand the inner journey of another, we are all doing the very best we can at this moment of our human development, and we can honor this point in the path in ourselves, in others, and in a society. By showing grace and compassion, to ourselves and to others, we can send the message that there is beauty in the human soul and this beauty of the soul can be appreciated even if a struggle or less than beautiful things are also present or appear more prominent.
Words that others have used to refer to me include:
A good listener
My Ph.D., postdoc, and clinical internship were all completed in Ohio. Following the completion of my education, I moved to Alabama, where I taught at the college level for two years. I then opened my private practice, in Montgomery, Alabama, as a Licensed Clinical Psychologist.
In my personal life, I enjoy spending time in the great outdoors, long walks, sewing, participating in the care of the environment, cooking up a flavorful meal for guests, and reading for both pleasure and knowledge.
