About Me

Welcome! My name is Nina and I am a licensed professional counselor in the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Arizona. I obtained my Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Michigan State University and Masters of Art in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling. In my free time, I love spending time with my fur babies, family, and friends, as well as traveling the world and giving back to my communities.

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of providing home based and outpatient therapy services, creating therapy programs in rural based communities, as well developing programs in residential and substance abuse treatment facilities. I have over 10 years of strong multifaceted clinical experience within the mental health, substance abuse, juvenile justice, and clinical research fields. In other words, I have strong experience in working with at risk and various population within several settings including school, court, medical, and behavioral health systems.

As a trained Marriage, Couple, and Family counselor, I enjoy working with family and relationship dynamics, life transitions, parenting skills, teenagers, complex traumas/abuse, and addiction. I am proficient in conducting psychotherapy with diverse individuals, couples, families, and groups using numerous treatment modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR, motivational interviewing, person-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, behavior modification, and family system theory frameworks.

If my family and friends could describe me, they would share my style as being warm, supportive, attentive, goal oriented, and comical. I understand of importance of identifying our strengths to help identify and address our struggles. Collaboration is key in therapy because you are the expert of your life and I am here with a set of skills to help you find the tools you are looking for to build and grow yourself. I ask that you give me ten percent of your trust and let me earn the other ninety. At times I may challenge you, but please know I am here to help you in your growth journey and on the other side of fear is everything you hopefully dream of. I look forward to helping you in any way I can!

Nina is incredibly kind and understanding and very educated. She is everything I need a therapist to be. I’m lucky to have found someone that cares the way she does.

My first few sessions with Nina is great. It took me about 6 weeks to find the therapist I thought was most agreeable and I have no doubts that I settled with the right one.

Nina is incredible! She met me where I was and has been with me every step of the way. I truly trust Nina with my thoughts and feelings and she has a great way of helping me find perspective and direction. Nina is down to earth and always keeps it real. She knows how to keep things lighthearted when appropriate and when to sit in the trenches with me during my toughest patches as well. I’m so grateful for Nina!

After my first appointment, I knew that I loved her. She was amazing and able to get me to open up when I thought I would not cry or feel anything deep at all. I thought I was a strong and okay. She also told me all of the difficult things that I needed to hear from her honest professional opinion. She also has amazing experience. I look forward to more sessions.

I have recommended BetterHelp to so many people but most recently my BFF decided to sign up. We talked about some of BetterHelps growing pains and told her she can try a different therapist than the one originally assigned. Please keep the users in mind as you guys grow. I am so elated that you’re growing and more people are getting and receiving help but just don’t forget about the user. Ever.

Nina is great. I litterally feel like I was blessed to have found her as my councelor. She has helped me through many battles I have dealt with my whole life. Counceling has never felt like a chore or just another appointment, extremely greatful. Thank you Nina!

Nina has been amazing. I have learned ways to cope with my anxiety that I will continue to use for a lifetime. She has helped me feel comfortable with expressing how I am feeling with my partner, family, and those around me. She is absolutely amazing and very flexible with finding a time that works good for you to see her weekly.

Nina is the best! She lets me talk and helps me come to my own conclusions rather than just feeding me answers. I have come a long way since starting with Nina.

Nina is a godsend. I’ll never be able to fully thank her for how much she’s help me heal and grow.

Written on Dec 09, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I’ve been working with Nina for 9 months now and she’s made a tremendous impact on my life in a positive way. I’ve done so much healing, personal growth and self development thanks to her and my mindset has become more positive. Nina doesn’t judge ever but she will hold you accountable and call you out. I always appreciate her insight and she has been the most effective therapist for me; this could be related to the fact that we have gone through similar life experiences and are part of the same culture. Either way, I appreciate everything she has done for me. I always joke with her that I’ll be sad when I’m done with therapy because it will feel like I’m losing a close friend and not just my therapist.

I've had several therapist and no one as good as Nina. She listens and provides honest feedback and advice. She's down to earth and I really like that about her. I know she's helped me through a very difficult year that includes losing my dad and dealing with the stress of living in a Covid-19 world.

Loved working with Nina. From the first moment we spoke, I felt heard and understood. A far cry from my one and only previous therapist.

I love Nina! Best therapist I’ve had and I have been in therapy for 10 years. She understands me and acts like herself and does not hold back from her honesty. My previous therapist have treated me like a child and I felt like they did not understand me at all. Nina is great and despite my financial difficulty I will still continue therapy with her.

Nina listens and counsels you confront your problem.

Nina keeps it real. She doesn't sugar coat. She makes sure we see the pitfall in our thinking, how we can overcome our struggles, and also makes sure we know nothing changes over night. She can pin point areas of work, provide great example and work to be done at home.

I've only had one session and it has already begun to make a difference. She made me think about things that I wouldn't have otherwise. I'm looking forward to more sessions with her.

Nina has been a saving grace for me- I have never felt so comfortable with a therapist before. I’m really thankful I matched with her on here.

Work with me!
