This is the woman to call when you ‘Need a Mom’

When you were young and life got hard and confusing, your mom was probably one of your go-to counselors for advice. Fast forward and now you’re a young adult and guess what: Life is harder and more confusing so who are you going to turn to? Well, yes, your mom may still be an option. But if you want a similarly empathetic ear, you can turn to Nina Keneally, who runs Need a Mom NYC. She offers her services as an advisor for your career and love life struggles for young adults around the world.
