Chiralaine Natschke

LCPC

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and have over 15 years of experience in the behavioral healthcare field. Over the years, I have served as a Mental Health Therapist, Child Welfare Supervisor, School Counselor, and Crisis Screener/Therapist.

I am experienced with the adults, adolescents, children and families who struggle with adjustment issues, depression, mood disorders, anxiety, trauma, dual diagnosis, and chronic mental illness. Finally, I have been trained in a number of therapeutic evidenced-based practices that I use when working with clients; including but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Experiential Therapy, and Stress Management/Mindfulness.

I believe in providing goal-directed treatment. This means that a goal or several goals are established after a thorough assessment. All treatment is then planned with the goal in mind and progress is made toward the goal in a time-efficient manner.

I use a collaborative approach and supportive stance when working with clients and clients tell me that I am easy for them to talk to. I assume you wish to begin therapy because you desire certain changes in your life. I will do my best to help you achieve your goals, but I cannot guarantee any particular results. You are likely to gain the most benefit from counseling if you are committed to the process and actively engage. You and I will agree upon a frequency that will work best for your needs.

I look forward to working with you.

She lets me ramble when I need to just talk and get the poison out of my system, but also answers questions about psychology and other brain science. She never winds me up, only calms me, doesn’t judge me.

I have been talking with Chiral for one year. She is compassionate, open-minded and professional. Her input helped me to get out of my suffering, build heathy boundaries, and unwind my limits which caused feeling of shame and guilty.
Words are not enough to express how great she is and how much my appreciation to her.
I am so lucky to meet Chiral.

Written on Jul 29, 2022 after therapy with Chiralaine for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, adhd, and coaching

Chiralaine Natschke is very supportive and understanding. We communicate mostly via email and sometimes by live chat. I can send an email and know I will get a reply in a fairly short amount of time. It has been helpful to unload and receive suggestions on what to do next. It's helpful to be able to unload with an objective listener as needed.

Chiralaine is a great therapist! She responds to me in a very quick manner and gives great advice! She has always made me feel heard and helps me work through my issues. She gave me some worksheets to complete, which make me feel more comfortable and confident with how to approach issues going forward. I really love how she responds to my journal entries and checks up on me. I couldn't be happier with my experience with Chiralaine!

I stared with Chiralaine feeling pretty lost, overwhelmed and just not myself. She helped me reframe how I see things, and realize where I was holding too tightly. She even helped me think through a workshop on stress and burnout that I was hosting for my team.

Chiral has a calm, wise, and understanding energy that makes it really easy to open up to her. She provides great advice and makes you see a situation from a better and more realistic angle. Working with her Ive been able to rephrase my stressful thoughts into more realistic action based thoughts, develop effective communication by being confident to be vulnerable, and acceptance. Highly recommend Chiral!

At first I was nervous about talking to someone about my problems especially a stranger (no offense). I’ve actually really enjoyed talking with Chiralaine. Since talking with her I have noticed I have changed the way I handle negative situations. Which I have had a very hard time doing for a long time! It’s really nice to speak to someone without any negative judgment!
