Biography for Nancy Arkin, CHt

Nancy Arkin

Nancy Arkin uses a wide range of techniques to assist her clients in learning how to turn negatives into positives, enhance their lives and discover their inner wisdom.

Since graduating with honors in 1999, my very successful practice has continued to grow at an amazing pace.

My fundamental belief is that each individual should be treated with respect and without judgment. Every human being has had different life experiences; I use a wide range of techniques to assist my clients in learning how to turn negatives into positives, enhance their lives and discover their inner wisdom. I am very passionate in my belief that each and every one of us has the ability to improve our lives and become our very best selves.

I have worked with clients on a variety of concerns, including grief and loss, fears and phobias, pain, stress and anxiety, motivation, procrastination, sleep disorders, past life regressions, communication and relationship enhancement, and sexual problems.

I have had wonderful opportunities as a spokesperson for HMI, CSUN, Moorpark College and Pepperdine University at student events as well as conducting classes at all four.
