My background includes working with teens in residential settings as well as in the community with individuals and families. I graduated with a Masters in Counseling from University of Texas at San Antonio. I then worked in the correctional setting as a counselor and managed Mental Health Services where I worked in this setting for a total of 8 years. I truly enjoyed working with clients in this underserved population. I then continued my career in my current Director role for a non profit agency that provides Mental Health Services in residential for youth and young adults, outpatient setting and day treatment programs. In my role I miss the one on one aspect in working directly with clients which is why I look forward to assisting you get to a better place!

Nina is one of the only therapists I’ve ever found who truly made me feel safe to be vulnerable and share things without the fear of being judged. It was a huge relief just to be able to talk to someone who remained neutral but provided validation and gentle guidance or perspective when needed. She is definitely one of the better therapists I’ve ever worked with and my time with her was very valuable.
