Hi! My name is Nina and I was born and raised in Hawaii. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have 6 years of professional work experience.
I have had a lot of experience working with people with Eating Disorders, having recovered from one myself after many years of trying. After overcoming this challenging experience myself, I developed a passion to work with others experiencing similar difficulties; because I know first-hand, how hard it was. In addition, I also have had experience working with people who struggle with Anxiety, Depression, OCD and a variety of other issues. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without judgment.
I understand that reaching out for help is scary and I acknowledge that; and will try my best to make it as least scary as possible. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and joyful life and to take those first steps towards lasting change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey, if you will allow me! :)
Additional areas of focus: Body Image, Drug and Alcohol Addiction, Eating and Food-Related Issues, Obsessions, Compulsions, and OCD, Self-Harm, Women's Issues

Nina helped me through a stressful and difficult part of my life while I went through several life transitions. She is a great listener and actively participated in finding helpful solutions/ways to cope with stresses. I would recommend her to others going through similar life changes.
