About Pathways to You

About Eric Nance

I was born on the Oregon coast, raised in Reedsport, Oregon and graduated from Reedsport High School in 1994. I have lived in the Midwest for the past 16 years and now call the open prairies of North Dakota my home.

I have worked in the mental health field since 1997. Practice settings have included outpatient mental health centers, adolescent residential treatment programs and schools. I have conducted presentations for and consulted with adult and adolescent treatment programs, law enforcement and other professionals in the community. Topics have included developing self-care strategies, working with personality disorders and identifying high-risk behaviors in adults.

Currently licensed to practice in Minnesota and North Dakota.

What to Expect

Before we get started, you will need to fill out an intake packet.  I have provided a link to the packet on the homepage of this site.  If you have any questions regarding the intake paperwork, please do not hesitate to ask me


An initial assessment is part of your therapy journey.  This is an opportunity for me to get to know you and take the first steps toward understanding what brought you to Pathways to You.  It is also your opportunity to ask any and all questions you have.  Most assessment interviews are two hours


Every journey is taking you somewhere and your therapy is no different.  Together, we will determine where you are in your journey and where you want to go.  Of course, paths change and goals can change with them.  That’s ok.  Sometimes we need to take a different path to reach our destiny. 

How Long

I learned a long time ago the journeys we take have no timelines.  Some journeys are short and sweet.  Others take more time due to the bumps and imperfections on the path.  The truth is, your journey is unique and we cannot see everything up ahead.  But, walking together, we can face whatever lies ahead.

Good fit

Sometimes clients and therapists just don’t work well together.  If you and I decide I am not the right therapist for you, I want to make sure you find a therapist that might be a better fit.  I will make every effort to assist you in this process. 

Tell me and I’ll forget.  Show me and I may not remember.  Involve me and I’ll understand
