I have been fortunate to work with people in all stages across the life-span, as a counselor and life coach for 20 years. I have a B.A. in Early Childhood Education from Western Michigan University and have taught at the preschool and early elementary level. I also have training as a birth and postpartum doula. My M.A., also through WMU, is in Community Agency Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Michigan and Arizona. I was fortunate to offer counseling for elderly residents of long-term care facilities in Branch County, MI for five years. My pronouns are she/her.
Most recently I have combined my passion for helping people with my interest in multiculturalism. I am a certified diversity trainer with National Coalition Building Institute and have spent twelve years working with international high school exchange students throughout every aspect of their program experience, from placement to support throughout their program year.
I was thrilled to participate in Bennett Stellar University training in Neuro-Linguistic Programming and Hypnotherapy in 2013 and have found the coaching skills gained there to be a tremendous addition to my counseling background. My approach to counseling varies depending on the needs of the client and combines all aspects of my own background to work effectively with a diverse range of clients at all points in the life cycle.
My counseling style is warm, compassionate, and interactive. I use an eclectic blend of cognitive behavioral, solution-focused, and mindfulness techniques along with Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, and TimeLine Coaching to help you reach your goals. Together we will explore the messages you have absorbed from the world around you and re-frame the subconscious messages you give yourself so that you can find peace, happiness, and success.
I look forward to getting to know you!

Natasha is such a sweet gift of a human. I adore our time together talking and writing. She is so helpful, supportive, kind and will also lovingly, challenge you and tell you like it is. She is ‘good people.’ I feel honored to be working with Natasha and love my self growth and increased toolkit I can access. She is helping me create the life I want to live.

Natasha Wagner listens. She respects you, she doesn't judge, and she provides resources. She truly cares. She sees me as a person and not as a number.

She is fantastic at listening and suggests new ideas that I haven’t heard from other therapists. I like her perspective a lot and enjoy speaking with her.
