Nourishing Habits™ LLC was established in Guilford, Connecticut by Karen Hersher, who named it for her daughter Nina's initials, N.H. As Karen launched Nourishing Habits™, she rooted the company's offerings in nutrition, massage therapy and fitness. Raising Nina, Karen taught her daughter the value of healthy habits for optimal happiness and physical health. Karen observed how her daughter maintained a calm and organized nature as the world swirled around her. Nina wanted to become a therapist when she was a teenager, and told her mom the world seemed stressed out and people needed more help to nourish their habits.
Karen encouraged Nina, who went on to pursue her Master of Social Work degree, individualizing in Digital Culture and Program Development, focusing on people's wellbeing in an era of technological overstimulation. Karen, similarly concerned about the increasing epidemic of chronic stress, pursued her certificate in positive psychology.
This mother and daughter duo strived to help clients achieve a sense of balance as the pace of modern life sped up and evolved. Nourishing Habits™ evolved too; in 2016 Karen and Nina trained together to become Oasis in the Overwhelm™ Facilitators, learning powerful strategies for promoting balance in a busy world.
In 2017, Karen and Nina formally expanded their offerings by creating two branches of the company on the east and west coasts. Currently, Karen lives in Guilford, Connecticut focusing on nutrition and fitness coaching, and Nina lives in Pasadena, California, focusing on mental health and digital wellness coaching.
Together, they run Nourishing Habits™, and are known for applying best practices in mental health and holistic therapies.
