Hi! I am a licensed psychotherapist and an award-winning motivational speaker and corporate trainer. I serve a diverse population of clients in the Scottsdale and Phoenix areas including individual adults, couples and geriatrics. I am committed to meeting my clients where ever they are on their personal journey by fostering independence and self-empowerment.

The therapeutic process in an opportunity for personal evolution: self-discovery, learning, personal growth and empowerment. It is not just for the individual who is experiencing crisis.

Areas of Specialty

Awareness of our connectedness to the Oneness creates a positive emotional and physical impact on our lives and helps us to thrive as individuals. Anxiety, depression, anger, co-dependency, and addiction can be symptoms of poor communication, unhealthy relationships or a yearning for interpersonal connection.


My wife and I have been very supported in healing some real problems in our marriage with Nancy’s help. She was very effective in helping us to communicate in a healthy manner. She taught me to listen and actually hear what my wife was saying.


With Nancy’s help I have learned to make healthier choices about what I want in life. I’m feeling that I can really live now and the EMDR was a life changing experience to move me out of the rut I was in. I was stuck.

Trauma and drama have held me back most of my life. After several EMDR sessions I feel free. I don’t want to create any more drama in my life. I can choose to set boundaries and to be in my happy place.


I will continue to recommend Nancy Harkins to my friends for couples counseling. Her encouragement and insight are so beneficial. It changed our marriage and made us better parents. My husband and I learned so much about ourselves and one another. She got us to talk to each other, not at each other.

Nancy helped me to change my life by changing how I see things. I like her style, because she often tells me what I need to hear, even if it’s not what I want to hear. She challenged me to let go of what I was believing that didn’t serve me.
