Coaching by Nina Rubin
4.9

Alan S.
Verified review

Nina Rubin is a great life coach for people who want practical advice and are uncomfortable with the idea of conventional therapy or coaching. She has training in Gestalt and marriage and family therapy, so what she teaches comes from a credible knowledge base, and she makes an effort to check in and make sure her clients are getting what they want from the experience. Coaching is typically from her home or other location (like a beach) she feels is appropriate for the client, and sessions are typically an hour long, though there is some flexibility, again, depending on the client. Her strongest traits are her compassion and the fact that Nina is a "buddy" type. That is to say, while typically people are apprehensive about opening up to a professional coach or therapist, Nina is such a down-to-earth person, speaking with her and getting advice feels as though you are just chatting with a close friend. As a younger person, she is ideal for people in the 20's and 30's age group, though her advice is applicable across the board. Most importantly, because Nina comes from a therapeutic background, she has connections that allow her to refer clients out if she feels that their issues require more than she can provide, and she is extremely ethical and compassionate, so will indeed refer if needed. My only criticism of Nina is that because she is younger, she does not always pick up quickly on one's issue, but as long as the client is willing to be candid and give her as much information as possible, she is open to being directed to where the client wants to go. Again, I strongly recommend her for younger people and those who are uncomfortable with the idea of life coaching or traditional therapy. Prices are reasonable, and the sessions are worth it.

    Curtis is both an amazing therapist and coach. We have worked in and out of both modalities over our two years together - the flexibility of his skill set being able to dip into both areas of expertise as my life has called for each has been wonderful. I am also a certified coach, and am continuously impressed with his approach and partnership. The results of our work together have been nothing short of life altering. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Tom Sorg truly has healing hands. I have had bodywork done by a number of therapists over the years, but I knew after 1 session with Tom he is passionate, knowledgeable and excellent at what he does. After developing a pain in the arch of my foot, I sought help from a podiatrist. My instructions were rest, drugs, ice, self-massage, orthotics, physical therapy, (stretching, ultra-sound, electric stimulation) then finally cortisone shots. After months of these treatments and no success, it was Tom who finally was able to free me from the pain. My only regret is that I didn’t see him sooner. That is only 1 example. He now works on the rest of my family and we have referred him to many friends as well. He will listen and with his awareness of the body, promote healing from within. Cindy K

    As a real estate developer with over thirty years of experience I have had the opportunity to work with many business professionals. I learned about Dr. Davidson's years of business and life coaching experience, multitude of degrees and coaching methodology and decided to hire Dr. Davidson as my business coach and consultant to help in the development of my new business model, create its various amazing new growth strategies and then help me implement them. He has been doing a great job for me and I am very impressed and thankful! He has also supported me in participating in the various meetings we have had as a clever, experienced and savvy business consultant helping me negotiate what is best for my business. I look forward to working with him and recommend him to others.

    Michael was a wonderful addition to our Light Up the Borough! He arrived on time and stayed until each child left with a great balloon creation. The balloons were intricate and colorful; kids of all ages seemed enthralled to watch and wonder what would be created next.

    As a colleague who has known Jeremy for many years, I regularly refer clients to him as he is trustworthy and has been a positive presence for both clients and therapists alike. Jeremy is a gentle, calming presence that thoughtfully helps his clients understand themselves more, grow, and heal. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

    Lexi was very attentive to my needs during the time that I had her as a therapist. She was very professional and made sure to always check in with what I wanted/cared about. She was very well knowledged and educated me a lot about the field and how to better my emotional intelligence and self awareness

    Erin is a wonderful therapist and all around good good human! She is warm, compassionate, skilled and insightful. She creates a space safe enough to really look at what's getting in your way in life without an ounce of judgment. I would refer anyone important in my life to Erin. I know they would be in great hands.
