My Transition from Psychotherapist
to Vegan Therapist.

For more than two decades my greatest passion in life was helping others to heal and grow through my work as a psychotherapist. 

After I went vegan in 2015, things changed. My mission broadened and animal rights advocacy became a defining aspect of who I was as a person and, inevitably, who I would become as a therapist.

about vegan counseling nancy elner is a reflection of that change.

Animal rights activism and vegan advocacy come in numerous forms. If you ask 20 vegans how they define the terms, you’ll probably get 20 or so different answers. Using my skills and passion as a therapist to counsel and support other vegans is what I do.

My background and training as a psychotherapist (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) is extensive. I earned a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work from New York University in 1993 and I’ve been in the field of psychology ever since.

I have a broad range of experience treating individuals, couples, and families in a variety of therapeutic settings across New York and California. Some areas of expertise include: depression, anxiety, relationships, stress & burnout, grief, trauma, chronic illness, major life transitions, gender identity and self-empowerment.

My therapeutic style is warm, engaging, and intuitive. I offer a safe and nurturing “space” so that you feel at ease and we can work comfortably and productively together. If you have any questions or if you would like to schedule a free phone consultation contact me today!
