"Hope isn't the white paint we use to mask our suffering. It's an investment in curiosity. A recognition that if we give up now, we'll never get to see what happens next."

The GIFT, by Dr. Edith Eger

Welcome! I am Nina Gorbach - Therapist, Artist & Storyteller

COVID-19 Notice: During these days of COVID, I offer telehealth sessions by videoconference or phone. Your privacy is completely respected.

I will re-open my office in downtown Sonoma as soon as we can meet safely in person. I look forward to that time! Meanwhile I encourage you to connect through telehealth which has some advantages I am learning. To your good health!

Nina Gorbach

Our times can be difficult for people of all ages. Children, teens, young adults to elders can feel alone, confused and anxious, struggling silently through natural disasters, loss of health, homes, friendships, jobs, loved ones, security and identity.   

However, in the midst of loss and change, we can get curious about our lives, find the courage to reach out on behalf of ourselves and others to receive support and guidance. Everyone deserves this support. In a friendly, safe environment, virtual or otherwise, I have the great privilege of getting to know you and accompany you on your adventure towards hope, clarity, connection, creativity, laughter and light.

In private practice, I focus primarily with clients coping with grief and loss, some losses we might minimize—the loss of a dream, a partnership, a betrayal, a way of life that no longer holds true--often a turning point in our lives.

In individual counseling I work with teens on up. I see children in family therapy and counsel parents and guardians. I am here to get to know you, listen deeply and see what new story is emerging for you. With 45 years experience as a counselor, teacher and artist, I can adapt tools and resources for the person or family I am with. No two people are alike and together we discover what is meaningful for your journey.

Please contact me for a free 30 minute consultation and together see if we are a good match. I look forward to hearing from you!
