I have been working with families, children, and individuals for almost 20 years. During that time I have learned much about patterns of interactions as well as how unique and yet similar our struggles are. The most meaningful lesson I have learned, however, is that you are the expert in regards to your challenges and struggles, whether that be with family members, significant others, or internally. I believe that it is my role to help guide you through the use of emotional support as well as challenging behaviors and/or belief systems that may be preventing you from attaining your goals.
I am a strengths based therapist and believe that everyone is doing the best we can. That being said, sometimes our best efforts can become maladaptive and get in our ways of being successful. Along these lines I believe that we are all inherently good and well intentioned and that our maladaptive behaviors and/or belief systems were developed as a way to manage challenges we have faced and at some point those behaviors began to cause more harm than good.
I have experience helping people manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, parent-child conflict, sibling conflict, difficult life transitions, and many other challenges. I am an eclectic therapist and pull strategies from different theories (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Client Centered, Systemic Family Therapy, Non-Violent Communication, to name a few). I strongly believe that my job is to work collaboratively with you to find the strategies that compliment who you are and your journey in life. The process of therapy can be overwhelming and understandably daunting that is why I believe that therapy is most beneficial when you the client have final say in all things related to treatment.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Natalie Thwing. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Natalie has helped me through a great deal. She is warm, kind, compassionate and very witty. While she has no chips in the game, I can tell that she does care and wants to be a part of my growth and healing.
She is amazing! I wouldn't want to see any other therapist!
Natalie is a great listener and is incredibly easy to talk to. I was extremely nervous to start video sessions but she made them low stress and easy to open up in. It's rare to immediately find a therapist you click with and I count myself very lucky to have matched with Natalie.
Natalie has been a pillar of support for me and has guided me through all of my mental and emotional ups and downs, as well as parenting and relationship issues. I am in a much better place, mentally, and am better equipped to tackle any or most of the obstacles that come my way. My husband always comments on how happy and at peace I seem after my sessions with Natalie. The sessions are candid and easy flowing. I always feel heard and understood. No judgments, no comparisons. Natalie is by far the best therapist I’ve had and who I will be turning to whenever I am in need of support, mentally or emotionally, or just need a friendly guide to show me a better way to achieve my goals.
I love her!!! It’s the first counselor I’ve liked. I feel like she listens and doesn’t try to baby me or be weirdly like prying and pitying
