About Me

Welcome!

I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Wisconsin) with 20 years direct practice experience in a variety of settings. These include; residential, in-home therapy, emergency services, foster care, adoption, and outpatient therapy. I worked as a lecturer and advisor in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Social Work Program for six years. I also volunteer as a Disaster Mental Health worker for the Red Cross.

My specialties include helping people with depression, anxiety, family challenges, self-esteem, life changes, compassion fatigue, and anger management. My theoretical perspectives/interventions include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Expressive/Creative Modalities.

My approach to therapy is to create an open, warm, and inclusive environment. I believe it is important to work collaboratively and practice flexibility tailoring interventions to individual needs. I strive to provide support while identifying strengths. My goal is to discover potential, foster growth, and achieve a sense of wellness.

I look forward to meeting and working with you as we begin this journey!

Nina is all you could ever want in a therapist. She's attentive, caring, empathetic, understanding, and she always makes you feel like you're the only patient she has. She's wonderful. 10/10

Thank you!

Nina has been so kind and supportive through the time I've spent with her. After having multiple different therapists through the past 5-6 years of my life, Nina is the first one I have felt really connected with and felt cared for through the work she put into providing me with extra resources, worksheets, and post-session reflections. Her techniques as a therapist and general personal demeanor make her truly unique, and I feel lucky to have come across her here at BetterHelp. I hope others in need that are looking for someone like her are able to find her!

Nina is kind, caring, considerate and frank in her assessments. She never tries to tell me what to do, only allows me to have a clearer perspective on how I’m feeling, how I’m acting and how/why this may be happening

I cannot recommend Nina enough. I have felt heard, supported and validated for the first time in my life.

I've only had one session with her and she was wonderful. She listened to everything I said and it felt like I mattered to her.

Written by K.A. on Nov 25, 2021 after therapy with Nina for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and compassion fatigue

Nina is absolutely wonderful. She has helped me work through challenges, advocate for myself, and handle difficult situations in a healthier way.

Written by J.A. on Nov 24, 2021 after therapy with Nina for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and anger management

I have found working with Nina to be extremely helpful. I have learned strategies to help reduce my anxiety, which has made a positive impact in my work life. Additionally, learning to communicate more openly with my partner has improved my home life too.

Counselling is something totally new to me, which I wasn’t sure I would find helpful. Through Nina’s support I have noticed a lot of positive changes in my mental well-being.

In addition to providing extremely useful professional advice, Nina’s friendly demeanour makes her very easy to talk to, which made the process much easier for me.

Nina has been such an amazing presence in my life. She really has helped me through some of the more rough patches of my life. I really love her approach and her professionalism. I would most definitely suggest her to anyone in need of a counsellor :)

Written by G.O. on Dec 23, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 6 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Nine Powell is an exceptional counselor. She quickly put me at ease, listens without judgement, asks insightful questions, and offers valuable advice. She is clearly incredibly kind, caring, and empathic and has excellent listening and communication skills. I'm really grateful to have Nina guide me through this journey and couldn't have asked for a better counselor. Can't recommend her enough!

Written by M.O. on Nov 29, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 8 months on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, and self esteem

Nina is a very empathetic and encouraging counsellor and approaches every conversation so free of judgement. I have found working with her, especially through the challenges of the election and the pandemic, extremely helpful.

Written by P.H. on Oct 09, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I've felt comfortable with Nina from the very first session. She allows a space where my values can grow in a positive way, and has a brilliant way of deterring any sort of self doubt in a constructive way. I recommend 100%

Written by H.E. on Sep 25, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Nina is everything you could hope for and more; she's the real deal. I respect her therapeutic creativity and expertise. She offers out of the box questions, ideas, choices and feedback to help me think differently. I was scared to start therapy many months ago. She created a genuinely safe space to share openly and work through life's challenges, past and present. Nina is incredibly supportive, patient and kind. I am thankful for her help and know I will continue to progress with her guidance.

Written by A.L. on May 14, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and career difficulties

Nina is a wonderful counsellor. She helps me develop strategies that are both practical and that yield results. Her schedule is very accommodating and I look forward to our sessions every week.

Written by L.I. on Apr 10, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

I've been working with Nina for ~ 2 weeks and I find her to be very kind, a good listener, experienced and knowledgeable. She's helped me realize some things already that I previously haven't clearly seen for what they were. I recommend Nina to anyone seeking counseling.

Written by J.E. on Mar 14, 2020 after therapy with Nina for 2 weeks on issues concerning family conflicts

So far I have a lot of confidence in our discussions and I am developing a trusting relationship.

Work with me!
