About Me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and holistic health advocate. I believe that our bodies and minds are deeply connected and work together which means they must be treated together. I also believe that each therapy session and treatment plan should be as unique as you are and, together, we work to get to the root of your symptoms and develop a targeted plan for overall wellbeing. My clients will tell you that this personalized approach helps them make breakthroughs, understand themselves on a deeper level and ultimately resolve any confusion, anxiety or depression that cause them distress.

I am a certified trauma specialist and a certified Dialectical Behavior Therapy specialist. In addition, I use Emotionally Focused Therapy techniques as well as traditional Psychoanalytic Theory in sessions. I use an integrative and collaborative approach with each client I work with to determine which approach works best. The goal is for you to recognize your strengths and abilities, understand your motivations, and implement proven techniques in a structured way to cultivate real results and change.

Note: I am located on the East Coast in the U.S and am in the Eastern Standard Time zone. I typically schedule during business hours on the weekdays in EST. Please ensure that your time zone and my time zone will be compatible for the hours that you prefer counseling. Thank you!

Although I have only had one session with Natalie I already enjoy how she strikes a balance between letting me ramble and offering professional input during our session. I like that she doesn’t have a ridged schedule for our session but let’s me talk with her about what is on my mind. She is also great at responding to messaging in addition to the video calls.

Natalie has helped me immensely. She is patient , helpful and such a kind, lovely & thoughtful person. She has given me the space and environment to open up, talk about my concerns and work on myself and different coping strategies and techniques. I am so thankful to have her as my therapist.

Natalie feels like a friend to whom I can confide anything. She is incredibly supportive and doesn't beat around the bush. She has done wonders for my personal philosophy and she challenges my personal demons with the effort to helping me shed the darkness in which I'm always consuming myself. I have nothing but positive regards towards her.

Natalie has been very helpful in the few months that I’ve been working with her. She takes my rambling and helps me untangle them so that the problems become more clear and easier to tackle. She’s available via the chat pretty often and responds within a day for most of my messages. She also reminds me to watch out for triggers or behaviours, and those reminders are great because sometimes I’m not even aware that that’s how I’m thinking or behaving. I’ve really enjoyed working with her and feel like I can trust her with the things I share and for her to help me find some solutions and coping mechanisms.

Written by H.A. on Dec 31, 2021 after therapy with Natalie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Natalie is the most effective, thoughtful, and motivating therapist I have ever worked with. She has been vital to my healing and I feel immensely grateful to have been matched with her.

Work with me!
