Integrative, Functional & Holistic Care

Supporting optimal health through all life stages


We work with adults, families, teens, children & infants who experience a range of issues along with the organizations and professionals who serve them.

Brain health is vital, our complete whole brain assessment will help identify targeted support you may need. Too often, brain dysfunction is normalized even though full brain function is necessary to helping you live your fullest & best life.

All bodily systems are interconnected – often a dysfunction in one area is connected to another directly or indirectly. Symptoms may be far from their root causes. We uncover & identify healing opportunities that are often otherwise overlooked through our comprehensive assessment process.

We work with the latest functional labs, backed by rigorous science & research. Testing may include blood, stool, urine, or saliva samples. Our motto is test rather than guess, and treat the whole person not the lab results.

Our Integrative Wellness Team consists of our Founder Nina, Clinical Advisors, and Specialists who work together to provide a range of services. Clients benefit from a cohesive rather than a fragmented experience as they receive the best in high quality Integrative, Functional & Holistic Care from our team.

Helping people build foundations of wellness in their lives is deeply gratifying. We enjoy educating clients and helping them keep their health in their own hands through increased awareness and education.


After an initial consultation, we offer coaching to help clients integrate care plans designed specifically for them. Programs and packages are available to work together on more complex issues customized to your needs.


We offer a range of services and programs to optimize human potential so that individuals, families, schools, organizations & communities can fully thrive. Our approach is rooted in neuroscience & biopsychosocial foundations. Our practice is inclusive and anti-oppression in orientation. We value privacy and informed consent. We affirm the full range of bodily experiences that people have throughout the life cycle. We actively pursue ongoing education in the latest evidence based approaches, ethics, and wellness. As a result, we pride ourselves on being:

  • Evidence-based
  • Body-centric
  • Compassionate
  • Comprehensive

Hi, I’m Nina!



I am the Founder of Whole Brain Whole Body along with several other initiatives: Integrative Institutes and Centering Families to which WBWB is affiliated. My work is born out of a deep desire to re-imagine the human experience, and that includes re-imagining health, work, school, birth, parenthood & beyond.

It’s my belief that we can optimize our human potential in all areas of our life – at home, at work & beyond – through optimizing our health. It’s not enough to be pain or symptom-free. At Whole Brain Whole Body, I provide rare and much needed comprehensive services to individuals, families, organizations, children & teens. From brain-based wellness services to early childhood interventions, holistic lactation consults, fertility coaching, pelvic pain consults, autoimmune healing programs & much, much more, these services bridge critical gaps in alternative care. In the hyper-specialized and compartmentalized world we live in, I bring back a focus to the interconnectedness of the whole brain and whole body. I work alongside highly qualified professionals in an Integrative Wellness Team to help you put your health back in your own hands where it should be. Together we bring an integrative and holistic yet functional approach to healing.

I am a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, Certified Breastfeeding Counselor, Doula & Infant Feeding Specialist and Professional Energy Healer. I have a Master of Science in Education and bring 20 years of experience serving hundreds of individuals, families and organizations in a variety of capacities as an Educator, Consultant, Parent Coach, Mentor & more, including serving the New York City Department of Education for over 10 years as a Teacher & Educational Consultant. You can read more about my multi-sectoral and multi-dimensional expertise here (click through the panel on the left of the page).

Personally, I’ve spent over 18 years on my own healing journey to resolve many of my own health challenges and throughout that process, I have trained professionally in the modalities that actually worked. I have successfully healed many health conditions I previously suffered from. You can read more about my story here.

I started Whole Brain, Whole Body because I firmly believe that greater access to alternative, holistic care is necessary and possible. Therefore, I remain continually committed to anti-racism and the Black community in all of my efforts - particularly in the following ways:
Many people ask me what Holistic Lactation Services are. It should go without saying that breastfeeding issues are health issues.
