For over 30 years, Nina has focused her career on supporting individuals and their emotional needs as they navigate life transitions in a variety of circumstances, including teen pregnancy, homelessness, parenting, child care, education, learning differences, workplace stress and burnout, elder caregiving, chronic and terminal illness, and end of life.
Nina appreciates and values her clients’ life stories within their own cultural-spiritual context and all the unique joys, struggles, and reactions shared. She brings a client-centered, collaborative, humorous spirit into the therapeutic relationship. Together, we explore the roots and meaning of behavior and untangle contrary thought patterns and difficult feelings that arise throughout life. She focuses on exploring and building off each client’s strengths and passions by utilizing a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Practices, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Psychodynamic Practices, all with a systems, whole person-in-environment approach.
You can find Nina encouraging self-care with her clients and practicing self-care by being outside with family and friends, enjoying the arts, and working on a puzzle.
