With more than two decades of experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Georgia, I've had the privilege of working in a variety of settings, from private practice to psychiatric hospitals, residential treatment centers, and domestic violence shelters. I've also worked with juvenile justice and forensic facilities, as well as child advocacy centers.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work has been partnering with local law enforcement agencies and district attorneys as an expert witness in trauma and abuse cases. In fact, I've conducted over 300 forensic interviews in several metro Atlanta counties.
In addition to my direct work in the field, I've also served as a governor-appointed Executive Board Member on the State of Georgia Sexual Offender Registration Review Board for over 10 years. And as a published author on a variety of mental health topics, I've had the opportunity to share my knowledge and expertise with others.
I've also taught psychology at the undergraduate level and conducted workshops on a range of topics, including relationship issues, parenting skills, stress management, and mandated child abuse reporting. With my wealth of experience and passion for helping others, I'm confident that I can make a positive impact on your life.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from Emory University and both a Master of Education (M.Ed) and an Education Specialist (Ed.S) degree from the University of Florida. As a registered out-of-state telehealth provider for the State of Florida (TPMC4), I am also authorized to provide therapy to Floridians. Additionally, I am a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS).
I help countless people "figure it out". Whether you're battling anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, or struggling with relationships, I believe that you are the ultimate authority on your own life. Together, we'll work towards finding solutions to the problems that are holding you back, so that you can live your best life.

I was in a big life crisis, Natasha was always there for me and shortly after our session I managed to go through it and actually change my life. I realized my worth and I feel like my life quality is changing day by day.
I’m very thankful to Natasha for being supportive, understanding and giving me practical techniques to help every time I really needed it. I always felt calm and safe while opening a session with her.
I highly recommend you to work with Natasha in case you’re completely lost and feel like your life will never be good again. You’ll get better very soon.

Natasha is such a warm and empathetic therapist that makes it feel safe to be with uncomfortable and difficult emotions. In my time working with her, I find that I have a much better sense of positive self-regard and greater clarity on what drives me and what I can take the steering wheel back from. I appreciate each session and the growth I gain in every session working with her. If you're looking for support in whatever you're going through, she is the counselor for you. Please work with her if you get the chance to!

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about text-only sessions, but being able to contact Natasha during my moments of intense sadness and anxiety has been really helpful. I'm able to capture what I'm feeling, and Natasha is great at getting to the root of the problem while offering helpful and kind advice. She also provides virtual worksheets that help me work through my anxieties and build up my confidence!

She is simply the best. I am way more at peace, non-suicidal, and finally finding my way to happiness. I am so grateful for her guidance and non-judgement. She is thorough and consistent. She honest, kind, and respectful in her approach.
