• As a clinical practitioner who focuses on trauma, I am always looking for alternative treatment modalities that will be effective for my clients. I have found that Somatic Experiencing compliments the clinical work that I do quite well, especially when administered by a competent facilitator, as Nina Goradia has proven to be. Nina is extremely knowledgeable about the workings of the human body and ways in which trauma influences different mechanisms within it. Her approach is one of empathic positive regard, sensitivity to her clients' individualized needs and diligence in assuring that each client feels empowered and in-charge of their own healing. I highly recommend Nina to any of my clients whom I feel can benefit from such powerful healing.

  • Nina has exceptional skill and sensitivity. She has a thorough understanding of the body and is able to find creative treatment strategies for a wide variety of symptoms. I would recommend and trust her without hesitation.

  • I first came to Nina with feelings of self-doubt and low self-esteem. Using simple explanations and exercises, she was able to help me gain a better understanding of myself and my feelings. Since then I have been consulting Nina on various personal and career related concerns, and despite us being in different states, she has been an immense help to me. With Nina's help I am in a healthier and happier place now and have gained tools to stay happier in the long run.

  • I had an amazing SE session with Nina when I was going through an extremely difficult period. I felt scared and weak when our session began. She talked me through breathing, finding where I was feeling anxiety, and placing my thoughts and hands on that area and then on my thighs. As I did this, I felt the anxiety and fear leave my core and I felt more solid in my body and more grounded. I felt centered and safe afterwards and deeply cared about my someone with a big heart and a wealth of knowledge I know nothing about. And all of this happened for me over Skype! It was so comforting and helpful.

  • As a registered somatic movement therapist and educator, I have had the privilege of working alongside Nina in her integration of SE knowledge since we met in 2011. In her, I have seen an innate understanding of the nuanced approaches involved in somatic experiencing, witnessed personal investigation and evolution, and have observed a sincere desire to alleviate suffering. I whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone seeking guidance for trauma relief using SE. Furthermore, those who are looking to integrate her other skills in body healing into their SE sessions will get a bonus!

  • What strikes me most about the way that Nina works with people is how she listens to them. She has so much compassion as well as a relentless passion for healing. Nina is generous with her time and energy to an extreme that is uncommon and inspiring.
