TUTORING FOR THE SPIRIT 2017-11-18T10:15:22+00:00


My name is Nina, and I am glad to see you here. Tutoring For The Spirit is a positive alternative to traditional counseling, where I use my powerful intuitive abilities that encourage guidance from the heart. 

I specialize in grief counseling and assisting people get through some of the toughest losses in life.



My counseling sessions are unlike many other therapists and combined with my many gifts and Reiki are powerful, and I promise you will leave knowing that you are okay and that you will get through this. Peace, will envelop your being. With the gift of peace you realize there is nothing to fear, and as peace begins to reside in your heart you will gently be shown the way.

Not knowing the next step to take or path to explore. Our feet may feel like glue. We are not sure what is wrong. We feel depressed, sad, and cannot stop crying, but often cannot pinpoint the cause.

Life can be a real struggle during these periods of loss and change. How will I ever get through this? We wonder. These feelings are temporary but when we are in them it does not feel that way. Its is important to know that in the space between the beginning and the end of whatever you are going through your soul is trying to evolve. This can be a gift and I can help you to open it through the guided messages I receive for you.

You will have discovered that you cannot NOT be okay.


If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in life’s search for love and wisdom.”


Nina was the healer that GOD led me to at the most challenging time of my life.  The ground was quickly coming apart beneath my feet and my reality was changing so fast that I couldn’t keep up with it.  My awakening was quite abrupt and traumatic since it was beyond time and I had been fighting it for so long.  I was hearing things, seeing things and feeling everything which made life as I knew it damned near impossible.  All of my unprocessed, unhealed trauma seemed to surface at once, which felt like a ton of grief and fear.  Nina was the one who guided me through all that – helping me to ground, heal and process, to integrate to the point where I could function again. If it weren’t for Nina I honestly don’t think that I would’ve been able to navigate my way through that period of time without losing my mind, not to mention my family.  She taught me how to function while feeling everything deeply and more importantly how to see that as the gift that it is.  She is one of the most compassionate, highest vibrational people that I know and a beautiful example of one who ‘serves’ in everything she does.

  • Our hearts continue beating no matter the sadness and visceral pain we experience when a love one dies. What else can our breathing do? Let me invite you to the space of the breath and only the breath. I know what you’re thinking, people say to you just breathe, take a deep breath and in the depths of grief even this sounds like it is no help at all. Yet, if we break it down and think of it as a connection to heaven, a prayer, a moment of grace something much deeper is felt. Tapping into a wisdom within ourselves that is bigger than this human experience. I remember when my mother died, I felt as if I couldn’t breathe. A panic attack would envelope my body, my breath was not deep, it was shallow and full of fear of life without her. It was a future I just could not picture. I dove into yoga and little did I know that my own breath would be my solace, tears of course came with it, but as I breathed, my grief was more in motion than stuck. With the breath there was grace involved, a prayer of sorts that I cannot put into words. It gave me reassurance that I was exactly where I needed to be. When we are grieving the outside world is a tough place, when we breathe we go within and connect to the body, mind and spirit. I felt a release with it, and I gained strength to make it through another day. Throughout my life now, when I become anxious, and I miss her or worry I take time to remember my breath which is my connection to the divine. Would you believe me if I said the breath feels like an old friend? It is always there for me waiting for me to take my next breath saying, “I got you Nina”. This is a simple exercise, so gather all your senses and read on. Try this mindful breathing technique which only takes a few minutes. • Close your eyes and become aware of your breath, the rise and fall of your chest, then feel the cool air going in and out of your nostrils. • Feel into your body, tenseness in your shoulders, back or anywhere else, breath into those places, imagine your own breath as the light of heaven. • The deeper breath is in to the count of 4, then out to the count of 4 nice and slow. I like to think of the ebb and flow of the ocean, the sound and rhythm of the ocean is similar to our breath. Relaxing your Tummy helps a lot (we hold so much in our tummies) Shallow breathing which is experienced in times of sadness, loss and fear, does not start at the belly, you will only feel the chest rise if your breathing is shallow. • Next, place one hand or your tummy, feel the warmth of your hand there, with the in breath we want to FEEL the tummy rise, then the chest. Imagine the breath moving up from your navel to the top of your head. • Be patient with yourself as you learn. Sometimes I imagine the breath as white light filling my body, sometimes I imagine my mother’s sweet face, other times I just use it to slow my thoughts down especially at night. I wish you peace on your journey.
