Hi, I'm Natalia and I specialize in working with adults dealing with anxiety, life transitions, and relationship issues. I have a speciality in working with those who struggle with substance use, those who are sober curious, and partners of those struggling with substance abuse. I come from the perspective that through life's challenges (bad relationships, grief, trauma, etc.), we start to second guess ourselves. In my work with client's, we begin by building a strong relationship and developing a space for you to explore those intrusive thoughts, anxious worries, and internal dialogue.

I am a strength-based therapist who will support and guide you as we explore the challenges you face on your journey.

If alcohol or drugs is causing problems in any area of your life, I am here to help. The disease of addiction disconnects you from everything that is important in your life and healing is about reconnecting and re-engaging with life. I want to know what is important to you and I use a non-judgmental approach to understand your unique challenges.

With a certified specialization in substance addiction , I can help you from self-medicating in an attempt to escape your sufferings.
I understand that life happens to all of us. You can feel overwhelmed by unexpected situations, unfortunate losses and unendurable psychological pains. Exposure to high levels of prolonged stress can lead to feelings of hopelessness and helplessness. Intense anxiety or panic attacks and social isolation are common experiences. Seeking help means that you are ready to work and bring your life into a healthier balance. Through self-acceptance and care, you can gain more tools to improve your lifestyle and relationships. By listening attentively with non-judgmental empathy, I provide ongoing support with therapeutic insight and expertise in a confidential setting.

I take a "meet people where they're at" approach so that no matter what stage of recovery a person is in they would never feel judged because they are "not ready". My experience compiles working in the field since 2002 for several substance use agencies in urban and suburban areas as well as a prior 10 years of "field research" with years integrated living experience. My personal life has shown that incorporating a strong recovery support system with a foundation in spirituality of any kind can bring a lasting, satisfying life in recovery.

Over 25 years of addiction treatment/counseling, and mental health training and experience, working with individuals/couples/teens, and the severely mentally ill, I made the decision to obtain my Doctoral degree in clinical psychology and MFT license to better serve those seeking to understand personal thoughts/feelings/behaviors; growth/change, and freedom.
Resolution, purpose, change, and serenity... Life is a daily "act" which is never-ending - always in session. Do you ask yourself, "How do I turn off,?" How do I manage life?" "How did I get here?" Through collaborative efforts to get you where you'd like to be, we will explore and work towards the solutions and goals that you desire to accomplish.

Some of the areas that I work with include: anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, recovery from sexual addiction , and family of origin issues.
Clients who work with me will find an inviting and collaborative environment where they can bring their “whole” self, the “messy” parts included, and engage in a process to better understand their stories and contexts, while receiving practical suggestions to support their experiences both during and outside of therapy sessions. I enjoy working with clients who wish to get unstuck from repetitive, troublesome, or self-defeating patterns of relating to themselves, others, or their world.

These issues can be matters of transition from one phase of life to another, the end of a relationship, wrestling one form or another of out of control behavior, such as substance misuse, or coping with feelings of depression, anxiety, or other manifestations of our psyche calling for help.
Congratulations on addressing your therapeutic concerns. Taking this first step often is a powerful journey toward healing. it is my belief the relationship you have with your therapist is crucial to the rapid resolution of issues. I believe therapy should be a rewarding, hopeful and, whenever possible, brief process. A client's motivation to change and willingness to work is crucial to success. My belief is the combination of insight followed by action is the surest pathway to change. My practice is addressing the barriers clients perceive that stop them from living the life they imagine possible.

Therefore, my specialty is women's issues, including, depression, anxiety, trauma, (sexual/physical molest), addiction , and intimacy/relationship issues, including co-parenting through, and after divorce.
Welcome, if you have found yourself here, it means you are thinking about making some changes in your life. Making the decision to begin a journey of self discovery can be scary to say the least. May I share some of my thoughts with you. I believe in the, "Law of Correspondence", which states that what is going on in our outer world is nothing more than a reflection of what is going on in our inner world. As within, so without, as above, so below. It would be my honor, and privilege to help you discover your best self.

I care...Let me help. We will create a safe, non-judgmental space from which to begin the process of healing. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families who have challenges in substance abuse, anxiety, depression, borderline personality issues and relationship problems. I also enjoy working with the LGBT community, specifically with Transgender people and their families. My rich life experience (fancy language for I'm older) allows me to truly align with partners and families that have members who are transgender and to be an ally with transgender individuals as they transition.
