• Welcome to our practice!

    We are honored to support you on this healing journey

    *Please read this entire page before contacting us

  • We have two healing routes to offer you.  You may also try both as needed to customize your program: 

    1. Individual Somatic Self Inquiry & Integration (Somatic Experiencing + Non Dual Self Inquiry Method) sessions with Nina online.  Scroll down to learn all the details.

    To understand how 1-on-1 sessions will be different moving forward in 2022, check out the short intro video to the right and the more in depth video below.  Adding Self Inquiry to our Somatic sessions allows us to go to the root of suffering at the level of Ego & Trauma Identities.  (More clips of how I work with these Identities will be at the very bottom of the page).  

    While clearing emotions and disproving thoughts can be very helpful, this is merely addressing the branches of the tree.  Clearing Ego Identifications allows us to clear the roots that continues to grow these branches. 

  • Dualistic Beliefs Cause Us to Fear Our Emotions: Surrender the Ego to Heal (This is a Short Introductory Q&A on Why Non Dual)

  • 2. Our group healing curriculum guided by Nina and with community support via Patreon.  Click here to learn more.

  • We Are Not Our Traumas: Question & Integrate Trauma Ego Identities with Somatic Self Inquiry Methods to Identify with the True Self

  • This Can Be Helpful For:

    1. Those who have worked on their trauma only through psychological means:  Working only at the ego level for trauma healing often plateaus in her experience working with herself and clients over the last 10 years.  That's because the ego is always creating new identities. 

    2. Those who have only traveled the spiritual or intellectual paths and who have bypassed their emotional experience.  Trauma and emotional work is important for ego integration.  Many have gone all the way down the spiritual path to ego dissolution with so much unintegrated trauma still remaining in their bodies that it can still come out and hurt others.

    3. Those who have worked on healing trauma at the body level, but may feel stuck identified with the physical.  Non Dual awareness pulls us out of this trap by helping us identify with the true Self.

    4. Those who have attempted both psychological, body, and spiritual healing, but need guidance on how to use these approaches together harmoniously. 

  • Current Availability

  • Getting Started as a New Client for 1-on-1 Sessions:

    *If you are new to this practice and interested in our individual services in May 2022, please note the following new requirements to work 1-on-1 with Nina:

         1. Due to the current wait list, we are aiming to serve all clients more efficiently.  Nina would like for you to either be a part of her Patreon program for 2-4 months while you are on the wait list to begin learning healing techniques right away.  This way you will not be starting from scratch when we begin individual sessions.

          2. Somatic Self Inquiry & Integration and Somatic Self Compassion Integration: Why are we adding Self Inquiry Technique to Somatic Experiencing Sessions?

    Over the last 10 years of doing this work, Nina has found that working solely on the psychological/ego and body levels is usually not enough for completely trauma healing.  She would now like to incorporate the the method of self inquiry in healing, so the ego can surrender bits of itself (at a pace you are comfortable with!) to the larger presence of our being.  Trauma gives rise to ego identifications, which then cause our suffering, thoughts, and feelings.  Working with ego identifications is going to the root of trauma, while emotional release is working at the branches.  Branches can regrow without cutting the root.

    She has also seen that without the Self Compassion and Self Inquiry aspects of the program, the emotional release techniques don't seem to work in the long run because new material is created if we are trying to "fix" rather than respectfully meet our material.  

    The technique of self inquiry was formulated by the enlightened teacher Ramana Maharshi and is consistent with Advaita Vedanta, a Non Dual spiritual path from India (that is not religious, but spiritual).  Nina has studied this for many years now and has incorporated its practical and effective methods with somatic techniques in her sessions with clients who were open to it. 

    She does not claim herself to be a spiritual teacher, but rather providing guidance as a counselor.  She is a student still on the Non Dual path who has been exploring merging somatic techniques with self inquiry, a combination which has rapidly accelerated her own healing and those she has worked with.

    However, moving forward for new clients, she would like to work with those who are open to the self inquiry technique and/or the spiritual path in general for optimal healing.  This combination can also help people on the spiritual path to avoid spiritually bypassing their emotions.  We can integrate the trauma ego using this combination.

    *Please know, whatever your faith is, you can definitely keep it!  Non Dual philosophies are found in Christianity in a Course in Miracles and in all major religions in the world (but on the spiritual/mystical path of those faiths).  Even if you are atheist, this work can be thought of as surrendering to Awareness, Presence, the Witness, the Observer, etc.  The main point is that we are not going to let the ego run the show, because that can truly go on forever without deeper more sustainable healing taking place.

     The non dual way of living is not a religion.  You do not have to change religions.  It is about surrendering the ego identifications and the story to experience our True Nature or Higher Power (whatever that is for you), which heals all.  This is not magical thinking.  There are specific techniques, which are very safe and freeing. 

    Please know there will be zero preaching.  You can take what you like and leave the rest.  If you know in advance that you only want regular SE without exploring self inquiry or the spiritual component, we recommend you see another practitioner, as this SE and non dual niche is where Nina wants to focus her practice moving forward. 

    Alternatively, you could also join our Patreon program for group work.  The Patreon program will have a Secular option and a Spiritual option with the Somatic Self Inquiry & Integration methods so that people can receive what feels right for them.

          3. If you want to move forward to be on the wait list for individual sessions, please fill out the forms at thesomaticpt.com/forms before contacting us.  Once we receive your forms, you will be added to the wait list and we will email you then to schedule an initial 15 minute complimentary consultation in May.  We will email you *in May* to set these up.  Please add both thesomaticpt@protonmail.com and thesomaticpt@gmail.com to your contact list or it may go to spam.

         4. In the meantime, it is recommended that you watch as many of the videos as possible on the channel (Youtube.com/TheSomaticPT) to begin learning many of the things I will be talking about within sessions.  You can also join the Patreon program for 2-4 months.  This will save us time in sessions so we can cover as much as possible.

         5. When we speak during the consultation, I will ask you some questions to see if what you are going through is within my scope of practice and if I can help.  If we mutually determine that we are a good fit to work together, we will schedule a full session appointment.  Please check your spam folder for the email confirmation.

         6. While I am a qualified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, I am not a traditional psychologist, psychotherapist, licensed mental health counselor, LMFT or LCSW.  This means it is not within my scope of practice to be treating severe mental illness, complex PTSD, severe psychiatric diagnoses, autism, suicidal ideation, history of sexual abuse or trafficking, or other severe and ongoing forms of abuse.  It is recommended that you see a practitioner that is trained in treating these issues.  If you are suicidal, please call 911 and see a psychiatrist to get the qualified care you need.

         7. If your diagnosis falls within anxiety, depression, dysthymia, psychosomatic illness, non-complex PTSD and other issues on the mild to moderate spectrum of trauma, we will be able to make considerable headway together. 

         8. Nina is only working with adults at this time due to the Non Dual spiritual component that is now merged with the Somatic work.  This is because children and adolescents need to develop healthy ego identities. You must be at least 18 years old.  However, we may make some exceptions if there are 1 or 2 unhealthy ego identities that need to be cleared in order to be healthy.  We won't go all the way with ego surrender for children until they are 18 years old and can make their own decisions.

         9. If you are unsure whether SE could help your specific condition, feel free to fill out the forms at thesomaticpt.com/forms first and then email us to book a complimentary consultation so we can assess if I am qualified to help.  In some cases, I can see you while you are also seeing a licensed therapist weekly.  If a case falls outside of my scope, I will refer you to the appropriate profession who can help. 

    We look forward to working with you.  May you live in peace!
