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!

We are still early on in our counseling but I have incredible faith in Natasha. She has already been incredibly helpful.

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.
