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 Hanover, New Hampshire. Formerly a parish pastor (Presbyterian and Congregational,) I have been writing fiction and essays and practicing as a pastoral counselor(psychotherapist) for over twenty-five years.

In my therapy practice I incorporate the spiritual and creative dimensions and emphasize mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. For more information and to make an appointment, go to therapy with Nancy Kilgore

My publications include a novel, Sea Level, and a memoir story about the antiwar protests at Columbia University in  Times They Were A-Changing: Women Remember the 60s and 70s. Both are available in hard copy, Kindle or Nook form.

See a review of Sea Level.


My latest novel, Wild Mountain,“a quietly seductive story of Vermont” is in process. Stay tuned!
