It's nice to meet you! I'm Dr. Rebecca Nicholson. I help you look at you problems differently. In the midst of stress, chaos, and unraveling, I help you find clarity and direction.


I combine scientific acumen, ancient healing modalities, and a spiritual perspective. You will feel relief from the stress, see clearly amidst the chaos, and find the meaning in your conflict.


Our most challenging problems require an unconventional approach. In my own journey, worldly explanations did not always help. My "Dark Night of the Soul" lasted for six years. During that time, it was spiritual wisdom that brought me the most comfort - not conventional wisdom. So when I work with clients , I draw simultaneously from the seen and unseen worlds to help you find the insight you need. 


​I have a Ph.D. in Conflict Analysis & Resolution. My work has been featured in The Miami Herald, Invictus Magazine, and Valka-Mir Human Security training material for US Military Special Operations Forces.

I also host "The Conflict Doctor" Podcast, where I discuss the intersection of personal and societal conflict.


Please contact me if you have a show suggestion or would like to be a guest!​

Spirituality plays an intricate role in post-war trauma recovery.


Cultures around the world acknowledge the ability to access ancient wisdom and spiritual information through modalities such as prayer, meditation, sound, herbs, and connection with animals, nature and their ancestors.


Remember, war and violent exploitation are not new inventions, and modern psychology did not always exist. Natural healing modalities have been the historic treatment for combat soldiers with PTSD (also not new), and present day individuals and communities recovering from the violence and trauma of war.

Conflict, Spirituality, and Meaning


I wanted to create a cross cultural book about conflict and spirituality that explains:

(1) The connection between our physical and non-physical worlds,

(2) How we can access the comfort and support available to us, and

(3) How we can understand our lives and our struggles on a more meaningful level.

I cultivated this work to demonstrate the various levels and ways that healing can occur.


Natural Healing as Conflict Resolution is a collection from authors around the globe.


We detail how spirituality, ancient wisdom, and intuitive abilities help address issues on the physical plane - such as public policy, health care, family and tribal conflict, as well as personal and private matters.
