About me

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Professional Counselor’s Supervisor 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!

Natalie has been a great therapist for me. She listens to my concerns and has provided helpful suggestions/resources to help assist me with things I am working on to improve my mental/emotional health.

I have not been with Betterhelp long but I have had a great experience thus far. Natalie listens and make me feel understood. She is compassionate about her advice and it shows!

Natalie is truly the best. I took a haitus from therapy for almost a year and when I came back , Natalie was there for me. She remembered everything we talked about from previous sessions and made me feel so heard and understood. I highly recommend her for anyone out there who needs someone to talk to. You will not be disappointed!

I have recommended Natalie Wakeley and Betterhelp to a few family members and to my best friend, who signed up for Betterhelp in hopes of having Natalie assigned as her therapist. She received a different therapist and has only just begun, so I'm not sure how she feels about it at this point. Natalie listens and I feel that she is empathetic, sympathetic, compassionate, professional, asks the right questions in a way that are easy to answer, gives me advice and feedback that make so much sense, and she puts me at complete ease. She also lets it be known that she takes the time to read each journal entry, worksheet, and message that I send and responds with exactly what I need between sessions. I've been told by several doctors that I've needed to see a therapist, but I was always too scared or skeptical. I'm so thankful that with God's guidance, I'm working on myself with such a wonderful therapist. I HIGHLY recommend Natalie.

From my first session until now, I have felt entirely comfortable with a Natalie. She is incredibly kind, very intelligent and professional. I was hesitant to start therapy at first and I am so thankful that Natalie is the therapist that I got!
