About Nina Keeler, LMFT


Being a mental health or helping professional can be an immensely rewarding career.  The joy and satisfaction we get from helping others reach their full potential is sometimes indescribable.  I also know, firsthand, how the same satisfying work can be draining, overly demanding, and eventually leave you depleted and completely burnt-out. You are why I founded the Trauma Treatment Collective.  I am committed to walking alongside you in your career journey.  You are not alone and I get it.  Maintaining your own mental health is as important as helping your clients.  Come on in and take a load off…you’re in the right place.

My Passion

I am passionate about partnering with and supporting other mental health and helping professionals who desire to grow their skills working with trauma-related mental health challenges while also learning to maintain their own mental health.  I currently provide Somatic Experiencing® focused therapy services and Somatic Experiencing Student Personal Sessions only to individuals that identify as mental health or helping professionals. 

My Training

I received my Master of Science from Kansas State University with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. During my time in graduate school, I fell in love with Play Therapy. I completed a Play Therapy certification program through KC Play Therapy Institute. At the beginning of my career, I worked as a Social Services Case Manager and had the honor of working with many children and families suffering from trauma and attachment challenges. This led me on a journey to learn about trauma and attachment. I completed Dr. Dan Hughes’ level one Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy training in Maine. I then went on to complete Eye Movement Densensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) training, the Integrative Attachment Trauma Protocol for Children through The Attachment and Trauma Center of Nebraska.  The focus of my training for the last couple of years and will continue to be moving forward is Somatic Experiencing.

Things That Give Me Life

I was born in the country and absolutely love rural living. I love growing a vegetable garden, cooking good nutritious food for my family, and eating delicious seafood.  I also love being active in nature.
