She’s also an Archetypal Pattern Analyst and Dream Pattern Analyst. Nina’s sense of adventure has always been sparked through learning more about people and their cultures. Believing that if you understand a person’s culture, stories, myths, and rituals, then you more readily open your world to greater compassion.

Working with death and dying patients, she acquired a tremendous respect for the proper honoring of story.
