Nina Thi Strom

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I am a down to earth, non-judgmental, trauma-informed therapist with a lot of love for the work I do. I practice client-centered and strength-based therapy from a place that meets you where you are. I am a strong believer in finding what works specifically for you!

About Strom's
Nomad Therapy

I am certified in Advanced Mindfulness, a practitioner of Tai Chi, and certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Integrative Medicine and Nutrition for the treatment of Complex PTSD and Trauma. I implement self-compassion and shame resiliency skills borrowed from Brene Brown, Ph.D and Kristen Neff, Ph.D. In the past I worked for UCLA’s FOCUS Project with the military and taught resiliency skills to the military while in Okinawa, Japan.

I believe everyone can benefit from skills training to enhance our ability to manage strong emotions and interpersonal interactions. I am trained in various modalities and am happy to teach/share these skills and ideas with you.

I use nature and body movement as well as creative arts
to tailor therapy to my client’s needs.

I also utilize the whole family system in treatment when available and applicable (including pets of all kinds, dogs, cats, horses, lizards, rats, snakes, just to name a few who have been present in a client's session).

I believe the body holds on to our trauma and pain. Chronic pain in my opinion is truly a teacher and learning to manage and decrease vulnerability and inflammation is key to my work with stress reduction, perspective shifts, and mental wellness approaches.

My whole body, mind, and spirit holistic approach includes my experience in the following somatic practices:
    • Tai Chi
    • Meditation
    • Yoga
    • Exercise & Massage Therapy
    • Recreation Therapy
    • Nutritional Therapies
    • Preventive Medicine while in the Navy

I do not work with a specific “population” or “pathology”, “label” or “disorder” per say, as I believe we are all part of the human tribe; life can be painful at times and labels can limit us if we are not mindful of their use, or overuse. Struggling, self-harming, and/or suicidal tweens/adolescents are a specialty population that I have worked with extensively and have devoted a lot of my practice efforts to support.

I feel it is vital to address the unique struggles experienced during adolescence which is a very rapidly changing stage in life and in great need of devoted clinicians like myself who practice in a non-judgmental, effective and timely manner.

All stages and struggles of life are welcome...
