Are you feeling frustrated, confused, stressed, depressed, or lost? Are you working to create more meaning, fulfillment, and happiness in your life?  Living a human life means learning to live with the human condition. That means challenges with mortality, relationships, conflict, emotionality, suffering, and change, among others. Therapy can help you respond to life events that may be challenging and confusing, events you may not be equipped to address. It can support the development of insight and behavior change to navigate life challenges in novel ways.

There are many different types of “sucker punches” that can cause people to seek counseling. It might be an accident, serious illness or a return from deployment that has set your world off-kilter. It might be a partner who told you he doesn’t love you any more, or it could even be you with that feeling. It may just be the accumulation of anxiety that has you thinking there has got to be a better way. There is hope!

I have over 20 years' experience working with both individuals and couples. I create a caring, safe, challenging and motivating environment so clients can better understand their patterns and start breaking cycles that inhibit well-being and potential. All of us will encounter periods of uncertainty, difficulty or change and may respond repetitively or unproductively, leaving us frustrated, weakened or unable to effectively tackle life's challenges. I encourage clients to enhance their strengths, increase self-understanding and foster personal and relational growth. No person is broken, or needs to be fixed, but only rediscovered.

If you have made it this far, chances are you are seeking something you haven’t yet found. You may just want someone to talk to or hold space for you. You may be hoping to explore and discover more about yourself, and utilize therapy to work through your barriers to growth and healing. I would be honored to be a part of your journey. I believe that therapy should be a safe space for folks to process, and is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. You may not feel it in this moment, but you are the expert of your experience.

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 (challenging 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.

Finding healing and restoration in one’s life involves a journey of self-discovery and healthy risk-taking. I seek to help my clients find purpose, wholeness and hope for what lies ahead. Through my personal therapy experiences, I am aware of the power and importance of having a sacred space where one can feel free to share without judgment. I value entering that sacred space with clients and joining with them in the work of moving from a place of pain to one of peace and restoration.

My priority first and foremost is to build trust in the client-therapist relationship. It can be challenging to share painful thoughts and emotions with others, so I believe it is a privilege whenever I am allowed into someone’s internal world. I take a holistic and collaborative approach to therapy, working with clients to address life transitions, family or relationship issues, overwhelming emotions, and self-harm. Having worked extensively with ethnically- and gender- diverse populations, I especially enjoy helping young adults explore their sense of identity and find meaningful roles in their communities.

Meeting with clients for years, I recognize that many find themselves trapped with shame. Shame causes intense emotional distresses such as depression and anxiety. Likewise, personal life struggles can also become entangled in it. Even talking to a therapist requires a lot of courage because of shame. When we feel stuck, self-criticism and self-doubt compound this feeling of inability. Therapy is not an easy process, and dealing with the discomfort will bring about self-validation and self-respect because of the limitations that shame brings us.
