Hi my name is Natasha and I’m trained as both a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and a cultural anthropologist (PhDc) and I blend the skills I have gained in both these fields to work with individuals and communities to realize and connect with their inherent strengths. I operate from a philosophy that people have the ability to recover and heal and the power to do so lies within them and my job is simply to facilitate that process. You are the answer!
I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy (NT), and Mindfulness practices to support the people I serve with constructing a new story of their lives based on possibility! I ground these clinical approaches in a deep sense love for the human condition and spirituality—simply meaning what gives us meaning and a sense of purpose in this life.
I am a skilled trauma informed therapist who specializes in healing from interpersonal and cultural trauma, grief, loss, and life transitions (i.e. work/career, family, school, relationships, identity, etc.) using both clinical skills and a person’s sense of spirituality to foster growth and personal expansion.
I am experienced at supporting individuals navigating complex issues around gender, racial, and sexual identity. You are meant to be here, exactly as you are, and I’m only here to help you remember this!
I look forward to working with you to help you move with joy into the life you really want to live!
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Natasha is so kind and understanding. Her insights are so helpful and she has made a huge difference in my life, in such a short amount of time.

I love working with Natasha so much. When I started my sessions with her I was lost, grieving and hardly knew myself. She is gentle, knowledgeable and firm, guiding my attention where it needs to go and giving me lots of affirmation and resources to turn to. After working with her for over six months I can hear her voice in my head when I'm feeling unsure, reminding me that I have the strength and knowledge within myself to move forward.

Natasha is very insightful. Her years of education and experience show in the way she approaches counseling. I feel understood and respected and have come to a better place in myself through working with Natasha. I was paired with her as a counselor by chance but if I had it to do over again and was given a choice, there isn't anyone else I would choose!
