Welcome! I’m Nina Rubin. I am a Coactive Coach.

What’s a Coactive Coach? I work relationally with you, with your goals, with your wants.

Negative thoughts and self-doubt often steal your peace of mind and you probably criticize yourself often. This repetitive cycle no longer works for you, but you feel alone and unsure how to deal with it. Stop suffering through this. I will help you learn to shift your mindset and start loving yourself again. Working together, I’ll help you identify the kind of life you want to live and create ways you can start to feel inspired to make lasting changes, while actively accomplishing your goals and gaining awareness about yourself.

I believe in small daily steps to achieve your goals. We’ll examine the obstacles holding you back. I offer feedback and support in a non-judgmental atmosphere. We will build on your strengths for you to  thrive. We will remove those pestering, repetitive patterns that keep coming back.

I help people during life crises and transitions. This is a trusting environment to process and re-frame problems. You will learn how to gain mastery, identify needs and gather tools to restore your capacity for peace and happiness. Coaching has less stigma than therapy, and I offer various packages to start.

20/20 Special

To honor the new year and new decade, I am offering a special program. Normally, my packages run for three months, but this time, I’m offering one for four months. Please contact me to determine if this program is right for you.

Getting Started

Beginning can be the toughest part. It begins with an email to me. We will then set up a phone call that works for both of us. In our call, we’ll discuss what’s going on for you. I’ll tell you how I work in more detail.

I offer coaching packages for individuals, couples and groups.

Am I too old? Too young? How do I know if we’re a fit?

You’re not too old. You’re not too young. If you’re reading my blog, we’re likely a good fit. I work with individuals and couples of all ages. I work with women, men and people transitioning. Truly, you’ll know if we’re a good fit when we talk on the phone or meet in person. If you get a good vibe, that’s a strong indicator that we’ll work well together.

More Details

How long are sessions?

  • They’re generally one hour to one and a half hours.

Where do we meet?

  • I work with many of my clients remotely. I see people in Germany, Spain, Great Britain, South Africa, New York, OC, LA, Denver and Chicago. If we have the ability to meet in person in SoCal, we will. Otherwise, our sessions will be done via Zoom or FaceTime (audio or visual, your preference).

What do we talk about?

  • Anything! Everything! Most often, my clients come to me with a series of problems or concerns. We identify all of the things that are working well and examine the things that need improvement. Then, we create an action plan to conquer these problems. I support you 100% along the way.

About Me

I began my Coaching practice in 2014. I’m nearly complete with a Coactive Coaching certificate from CTI. Additionally, I’m certified by the Center for Somatic Studies in New York. My Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology taught me how to understand problems psychologically and allows me to get to the root of your habits quickly. I worked as a Marriage & Family Therapist for seven years. I love thinking about existentialism and making meaning out of life. I incorporate a Gestalt Perspective, which is a here-and-now attitude into my Coaching work. I live in Southern California. I love baking, cooking and sunshine.
