My name is Natasch Lindsey Acker. I am a licensed therapist. You can call me Talyah. I've been fascinated with psychology my whole life. I've worked in the fields of education with young people, and then in counseling for a total of 20 years. I've attended Spelman College, Columbia College, and the University of Arkansas. I've chosen to specialize in helping people have better relationships. Much of what we struggle with today is a direct result of the things we learned and experienced in our past. Things that we had no control over. My favorite two sayings are "Knowledge is Power" and "Team work makes the dream work." They can be corny, I know; but cliches become cliches for a reason. Because they start with well worn truth.
Gaining knowledge of how our mind works can empower us in so many ways. It's like turning on the light switch in a cluttered attic. You can see the fullness of your environment and can easily navigate your way through once you see the full space clearly. Our lives are like that.
Because we are social creatures, we live, and grow, and develop our sense of self by what we see reflected in the eyes of others. It is vital that we have a support network. And sometimes that support can start with just one person who will take the time to listen and be on your side. I am here to be that person for you. I am passionate about helping people learn how to have a healthy connection with themselves and with others; because those connections are our greatest sources of happiness and satisfaction. You can have better relationships, more outward success, and greater peace. You can rewrite your old scripts and choose how you want your life to unfold, rather than continuing to follow the old patterns that worked in the past, but are no longer working in your best interest now. Thank you for taking this first step with me.

I have only spoken with Natasch a few times so far and it has been great! This is my first time trying therapy and so far it has been so helpful and I plan to continue on this journey of getting to know myself better and learning how to navigate some relationships in my life.

I have only had one session with Natasch, but in that one session, I knew she was the right person for me. She had just enough sweetness and sternness for me. She made me very comfortable telling my inner secrets. LOL!!! I am ready for our next session to see what we talk about next.

Natasch has been instrumental in my ability to live my best life and be the best version of myself. She displays empathy in each of the sessions and more importantly is able to provide viable and useful tools that help cope with day - day experiences and situations. I am very grateful that she is my therapist and appreciate her time and advice.
