About Me

Hello!

My name is Natasha Troutman and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of California. I have been working in private practice as well as residential facilities for the last 5 years. I am equipped to work with mild to severe mental health disorders. I specialize in anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, trauma, couples/family therapy, and life changes.

The first step towards change is always the most difficult, especially when it involves opening up to a stranger in hopes that she will relieve your suffering. However, I work with you collaboratively, offering compassionate and non-judgemental care while maintaining a sense of humor in order to reduce your anxiety around seeking therapy. I utilize solution-focused and evidence-based techniques to provide brief, structured treatments that have demonstrated proven results. Because I do not believe that anyone needs to live in suffering, the services I offer aim to help reduce distress and increase well-being.

I attended San Jose State University for graduate school where my supervisors strongly encouraged and trained me to use the practices that have the most evidence of success. I am knowledgeable about the effective treatments for all psychological disorders including depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, complicated grief, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and anxiety.

I have experience working with suicidal ideation, borderline personality disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, domestic violence, grief, anxiety, multicultural issues, and depression. I have been trained in evidence-based practices for OCD such as exposure with response prevention (ERP) as well as Cognitive Processing Theory for PTSD. In addition, I am experienced in working with children and teenagers suffering from various symptoms of distress including trauma, oppositional behaviors, and ADHD.

I have received extensive training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). All of these treatments have profound empirical evidence to support their ability to lead to positive outcomes.

I look working with you to assist you in increasing your quality of life!

Written by T.R. on Feb 07, 2020 after counseling with Natasha for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coaching

Natasha is amazing. She is super helpful and has many resources and suggestions. I have already put her suggestions into action, and already feel so much better. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist.
