7 years of experience
Solution oriented

Welcome! My name is Natalie and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor. If you're new to therapy or have tried therapy in the past and want to begin again, I can help. I specialize in Somatic techniques as well as Internal Family Systems and Dialectal Behavior Therapy to help you process pain and change unhealthy patterns in your life. I also treat issues such as anxiety, depression, Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, PTSD and OCD. My approach is holistic, which is the belief that our bodies and minds are deeply connected and work together which means they should be treated together to achieve true balance. This simply means that in our sessions we will focus on the mind and thoughts but also tune into and connect with our feelings and emotional body. Each therapy session and treatment plan should be as unique as you are, and together, we will work to get to the root of your symptoms and develop a plan to achieve true contentment and peace. This personalized and holistic approach helps you see your world through a more positive and balanced lens that promotes total wellbeing.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, I want to get to know you and also answer any questions you have about this process. The first session is where I get to know what brought you to counseling and what you would like work on and change. If you don't know where to start, that's ok, too! Just showing up is a big step and I can help you take the next one.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strengths as a therapist lie in my ability to put my clients at ease and I enjoy helping clients "drop in" to their bodies and experience therapy both mentally and somatically. I believe that everyone should feel supported, heard and respected in a therapy session. I also ensure that I provide the best service I can by remaining objective and honest and hold clients accountable to their therapy goals. My goal is to help you show up for yourself.

My treatment methods

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems therapy is a groundbreaking approach that helps clients get in touch with their "internal family" and all the parts of themselves internally. Have you ever found yourself saying, "A part of me wants X but another part of me wants Y"? This approach helps to bring cohesion, acceptance and understanding to all our "parts". This can help to understand the Self completely and all the unconscious blocks and barriers that stand in the way of living one's best life.

Dialectical Behavior (DBT)

Dialectal Behavior Therapy is an approach that focuses on building skills to cope with everyday life. It's useful for those who experience difficulty with mood swings, depression and anxiety and is the first line of treatment for those with Borderline Personality Disorder.


Traditional psychoanalysis is a powerful method that focuses on emotional responses, identifies themes and patterns in your life and ultimately helps to bring the unconscious mind forward to the conscious mind to resolve and change unhelpful and painful patterns.
