I passed out at work when I was 17 and couldn't go back to my job. I went to doctor after doctor as my parents tried to figure out what was wrong only to find no good answers. A psychiatrist diagnosed me with anxiety, depression, and a multitude of other personality disorders that (he said) I would never recover from. I was to eventually be confined to a psychiatric facility if the medications he prescribed did not work. My step-mother, being Chinese, recommended acupuncture, and so I found myself flying out to Los Angeles to visit my first Acupuncturist in China Town. Treatment wasn't miraculous, but slow and steady. I was off all my medications within a year, and continued to see a very talented Acupuncturist at home in Pennsylvania every week for two years. One day he said to me, "Nina, I think you'd make an excellent acupuncturist", and 6 months later I was in school in Santa Fe, NM, beginning to get my life back. I got married, finished a Master's Degree, had a child, and although a struggle, finally was correctly diagnosed with Estrogen Dominance, a condition where my body naturally holds on to estrogen. This condition really messes with your mind and your entire body - from hormones to brain chemistry, to metabolism. I struggled with fatigue, devastating migraines, continual colds that lasted for months, and paralyzing anxiety. After continuing with acupuncture long-term, my body balanced. I had energy, creativity, and the ability to live life again.
Then at 36 I had a near-death experience while giving birth to my son. I was bleeding out and my infant was stuck and twisted. Although everything turned out just fine, this experience opened me up to a multitude of gifts including becoming an energy intuitive, the ability to do Shamanic healing, and becoming a Channel. Most of my work is now channeled. I create intricate geometric grids which translate into acupuncture combinations that transcend Traditional or Classical Acupuncture - creating a unique personalized treatment which incorporates the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of being human. I will often use Shamanic Tracking to gain insight into a client's issues and integrate all that I have learned about Quantum Mechanics, energy work, and the subtle energetic fields of the body to help transform a person with an illness, to a person who can fully sit within their own being and express their unique gifts in their life. I am continually learning from my patients and find that they heal me more than they could ever know. I am always learning and continually receive guidance from my Shamanic ancestors, my clients, and from meditation, which I believe to be the most important practice we as humans can undertake.
All my life I did what everyone else expected of me. As a teenager I wanted to be a writer and a performer, but they said I had to go to college, and so I went to college. While I was in college I majored in History because I loved telling stories, but when I graduated college they told me I had to get a job so I became a Social Studies teacher and I was miserable. After being a teacher didn't work out they told me I needed to get a corporate job, so that's what I did. I got an MBA so I can get an even better job, but I was still miserable and sick. I was overweight, I had several kidney stones that landed me in the Emergency Room, I had to have my gallbladder removed, and my blood pressure was dangerously high.
To make things more stressful, all those "secure jobs" were anything but secure. In my career I have been laid off four times, fired three times, and forced to quit twice. In the few jobs where my position was relatively safe, I was bored and depressed as I had to do my best to pretend to be busy in order to convince my bosses that I had plenty of work to do!
After learning Reiki and SRT I discovered that I really enjoyed helping people. But it would take another 15 years before I was able to do enough clearing work on myself to get the courage to make this my new career.
With SPIRIT's help, I cleared all of the programs and blocks in my soul records that were the foundation of my prior belief system that other people were wiser than me, even when their advice went against my highest good.
I then made a deal with the Universe. If SPIRIT could show me the way to leave the corporate world behind, I would devote my life to helping others find their highest potential through SRT and the Law of Attraction.
The Universe came through by eliminating my last corporate job, leaving me with a choice. I could follow through on my promise to help others reach their potential, or I could go back to the bored, depressed and sick person I was.
My choice was to live my highest potential, and I'm here now to help you reach yours.
PHILOSOPHY + BACKGROUND
Our practice utilizes separately, and in combination, acupuncture, Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT), esoteric, and Shamanic practices depending upon the needs of our clients. We are focused primarily on a state of balance and wellness rather than purely treating illness, as we believe any state of imbalance is merely a signpost that the client has set up for themselves to pay attention to, for greater personal growth. We work to uncover and release blocks to full, creative expression and vitality while supporting the physical, emotional, and spiritual body.
We believe that everyone has the ability to reach their greatest potential and can do the internal work to accomplish this goal. We act as facilitators to this process, helping shed light on potential issues and making the client aware of their own power to change and grow. Our work is not to be confused with that of seers or divination, but rather tools for uncovering long-standing pain and the creation of the space to release that pain.

I have had back problems for the last 29 years and have spent the last 29 years trying to cure it. I have tried many modalities with limited success. After one session I only felt brief, random pain in my side. The next day the pain was gone and hasn't returned. I feel like the SRT and Acupuncture therapy shifted me to a better place mentally and physically. If you suffer from chronic pain, anxiety or depression I would recommend a session with these two caring people.

Bill and Nina are great people and are very personable. They care deeply for their clients and do everything in their power that when you walk away you are either feeling better or starting to feel better. At first I was on the fence whether I truly believed what Bill was trying to convey to me, but as our time together lengthened, what he was telling me started making a lot of sense and cleared up a lot of my past thoughts and some of the demons haunting me. I recommend their services highly!

The first step in solving a problem is realizing there is one. Spiritual Response Therapy helps you identify where the energetic blocks are in your life, and what they look like, and with the help of the divine and your own focused attention, blocks are cleared within moments. I've been healing from my wounds and growing into a strong, empowered woman for quite some time now by doing a massive amount of inner work. Along the way, seeking guidance through therapy and multiple spiritual modalitites has helped build the momentum needed for these positive changes and self-acceptance, but my SRT session with Bill was my key to achieving a level of clarity and expansion that I hadn't yet found, or felt was possible. Bill's no-nonsense approach to spirituality helps bring higher concepts down to earh. He's easy to connect with, and easy to trust, and I'm so grateful that he was there to help me with his unique gifts and connection to Spirit. I recommend booking with Bill if you're feeling blocked in any way on your path of true purpose!
