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!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Relationship, Family, Intimacy-related, Eating, Parenting, Self esteem, Career, Bipolar

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!
Natasha has not only helped me to concretize the particular issues I was facing, but also offered me strategies to cope with them. I have always felt very comfortable sharing my thoughts with Natasha because of the supportive and non judgemental environment she provided. Something I very much appreciated were her efforts to always make sure she would understand me correctly which made me feel like she really got me.
I find Natasha extremely professional, understanding, genuine and I'm so glad I decided to reach out for learning the understanding of the correct ways to feel, think and deal with situation and feelings so I'm able to put things where they belong and hopefully become more of a positive, strong and confident person where I'm setting myself goals and seeing them reached...
Natasha thank you for the short time I've been having you listen and giving me advise has made me feel so so much better than I have for a while.
Natasha is both a wonderful counsellor and person. I came to her a few months ago to help me to address some anxiety and panic issues, and I'm pleased to say that I have been able to already reach several of my therapy goals as a result of what I really feel has been a joint effort. Natasha is very knowledgeable and uses CBT techniques complemented by other approaches. I have felt completely supported by her throughout the time we've worked together, her positivity, warmth, and lack of judgement creates the perfect environment to foster self growth. Natasha has helped be to gain the skills and perspective necessary to overcome my problems, and in addition to this I feel positive that with continued work together I will reach more goals than I ever imagined at the beginning of therapy. I would completely recommend working with her.
I have been working with Natasha for two months, and have come a long way with her help. She has an excellent understanding of trauma and the process of healing from the effects of trauma. She has guided me through several exercises and always been supportive and patient and addressed any of my concerns and queries.
I was really impressed by Natasha. Started right in with forming goals and giving homework, which I need. Checked in when didn't hear from me. Wouldn't let me avoid which I tend to do! Highly recommend her and hope to get her back once I find a job.
Natasha is a great person to talk to. In the time that we've been speaking, she's given me insights that I haven't had with previous counsellors. I feel that we have a good connection and I feel completely at ease with her. You can tell that she really cares and knows what you need to make progress. I'd highly recommend her.
Natasha is a very professional, intelligent, but down-to-earth lady. I felt a wonderful connection with her. She asks the right questions and the advice that she has given, along with mental exercises and other writing "homework" has proved to be incredibly helpful to me. I haven't had great success with psychologists in the past, so she has reaffirmed that there still are great minds who really care, and want to help and see us succeed. I would definitely recommend Natasha Wilson and Better Help to anyone looking for a therapist with a good perspective and a keen sense in understanding things people don't say upfront.
