Professional statement

Nancy Saxton-Lopez is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with offices in Midland Park and Madison, New Jersey. She specializes in depression, anxiety, grief, loss and bereavement (including pet loss), and working with adolescents and teens.

Clients often visit Nancy when they're facing anxiety, which may present itself as social anxiety and sometimes accompanied by symptoms of depression. Nancy's approach is rooted in psychodynamic and relational therapy, focusing on the importance of establishing and maintaining healthy interpersonal relationships. She also works from a supportive therapy lens, which allows clients to release emotions in a safe, supportive place. When helpful, Nancy also offers suggestions from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), including techniques like challenging one's own negative biases. Treatment with Nancy is highly individualized, depending on a client's needs.

Nancy also approaches therapy from a coaching perspective, and strives to help each client label their feelings in order to best express them and move forward. She is unwaveringly supportive and compassionate, and as direct as possible when helpful. She looks forward to meeting you.


Message to clients

I encourage people to tell their story.  This gives me a perspective of their life; what they are struggling with and what their wants and needs are.  I am the catalyst to allow someone to understand themselves and the patterns they use that may be detrimental to them.  When that is known we can work together to establish healthier patterns to create a more fulfilling and happier life.
