Great info!

Outright thankful for this podcast

For anyone to spend the time to be so thoughtful, real and respectful to all is so admirable. I love listening to Nina’s approach and can relate to so much of what she has shared. Keep it up Nina, this listener is benefiting and so many others can too!

A-MAZING!

Nina is soooo bubbly and lively, I adore her! She’s such a great interviewer and while I totally get that the topic can be a bit hard for some people, I also recognize the power of control that she’s putting into the hands of others to help them find their own significant ways to fight back against their own traumas, rather than expecting someone else to do to the work for them. Not exactly PC these days, but that’s why I love her! SHE IS REAL!!
