Welcome to my website. I am a pastoral counselor (psychotherapist) and a writer. I live and write in Burlington, Vermont and have a psychotherapy practice in Shelburne, Vermont and Hanover, New Hampshire. Formerly a parish pastor (Presbyterian and Congregational,) I have been a pastoral counselor(psychotherapist) for over twenty-five years. In my therapy practice I integrate traditional psychodynamic therapy with mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, spirituality, and creativity. For more information and to make an appointment, go to therapy with Nancy Kilgore or All Souls Interfaith Gathering.


Save the date! Join me in the high desert next summer!  July 31- August 6, 2016 Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico                                                  Writing With Spirit.  Each of us has an inner light, something that can be expressed in creative form. But so often our vision becomes obscured by busyness or negativity. In this week at Ghost Ranch, in the sacred space of the high desert, we will combine meditation and writing to open into the depths of our own inner visions and express them in poetry, fiction, memoir, or creative nonfiction. Register here: Writing With Spirit
