Natalie is a therapist with experience and specialty in assisting adoptive families and their children/teens. She is passionate about working with young children, but also enjoys working with all ages regarding adoption issues. Her office is both adult and child friendly.

“As a therapist, my goal is to help you, your child, and/or your family work through hardships and struggles so you can enjoy all that life has to offer. I work with individuals, couples, families, children and adolescents. By utilizing evidence-based practices I assist clients in gaining deeper knowledge and insight into current issues. Most important to my therapy practice is developing empathetic and trust-based relationship with the clients I serve.

My professional experiences have taught me that my passion is working with children and families. I have a wealth of knowledge in infant and child mental health and practice directive play therapy and attachment therapy. Also, I have experience assisting with adoption issues, family struggles, trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, coping with life change, woman’s issues and child and adolescent mental health issues.”
