Welcome! I’m Nina Rubin. I am a Life Coach.
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 would like to 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. I treat 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.
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 and couples. I also co-lead a Mindset program called Here & Now & Next Program.
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.
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 Minneapolis. If we have the ability to meet in person in SoCal, we will. Otherwise, our sessions will be done via FaceTime or Skype (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.
I was formally trained as a Marriage & Family Therapist. I graduated from Antioch University with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology in 2008. I practiced as a psychotherapist until I changed my practice to Life Coaching in 2014. Some of my training comes from the Pacific Gestalt Institute in Los Angeles and also from the Center for Somatic Studies in New York. 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 and have a cat. I love baking, cooking and sunshine.
