About Me

Welcome!

No matter what circumstances brought you seek help, you are further along in your journey to greater well-being today than you were yesterday simply because you are here. Congratulations on taking this important step to living your best life! Let me tell you a little about myself, my professional background, and how I can support you as you navigate the challenges you are currently facing.

I have a master's degree in clinical social work and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of California. The bulk of my experience as a therapist has taken place in a community mental health setting serving low-income, vulnerable individuals. I come from a biopsychosocial perspective, an interdisciplinary model that looks at the interconnection between biology, psychology, and socio-environmental factors and how they impact a person's well-being. My specialties include treating complex trauma, depression, and anxiety. I am certified in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and have extensive training in the following clinical modalities: Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy.
It would be my honor to become part of your journey.

Reviews

Written by F.E. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Natalie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Natalie is engaging and I like her use of mindfulness in her sessions. She is bright and encouraging, but also digs deep to try to find out is really going on. I'm enjoying working with her!
