New Member: Nermin Matta

Imagine standing at the edge of a cliff, looking down at the breathtaking view of nature. That is where my passion began for finding the meaning of life. My name is Nermin Matta, I am a dedicated full-time family physician and a mom to a beautiful daughter, my Rachel.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have a turning point early in my life to conceive the idea of practicing medicine as a mission, not just as a career. I admire seeing myself as a part of the miracle of healing human bodies.

My interest in psychology started where I was practicing as a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology (OB/GYN). In many countries in Africa and the Middle East I was faced with the fact that every human being has a deeper need than merely touching their material bodies–many of my patients also needed to heal their souls and minds and find meaning in the midst of misery.

My vision is slowly growing as I am facing my own suffering and searching for the meaning behind it.

I am very excited to be part of the INPM community and look forward to embodying emotional maturity and gaining a deeper understanding of life’s meaning.
