Hi, Natalie here! I am honored that you are considering therapy and have stopped by my page. I primarily serve clients ages 3 into early adulthood who are challenged by critical life transitions and/or unresolved trauma that leads to unmanageable feelings and behaviors. Another demographic that I enjoy serving are those in helping professions (education, medicine, mental health, spiritual) to combat burnout/compassion fatigue and related issues. Each client who seeks help desires a break from the overwhelming feelings that cause them to feel emotionally unwell. Thank you for letting me be part of your journey.

I work with children ages 3+, adolescents, and adults. Your body, mind, and spirit naturally start to heal once it is in a state of peace. My job is to help you get there. Whatever you or your child have gone through, healing can occur once you are reconnected with your natural state. It takes some work, and that is what my work is about. I help people identify their inner strengths and empower them to use those strengths. I also really enjoy working with individuals and couples to resolve conflicts and create more rewarding connections.

Brene Brown once said "Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging. It’s being all in." I approach a session in this way and I hope to help each client navigate this journey. Whether it is issues with depression, anxiety, family conflict, substance abuse, etc, I hope to help each client reach that balance. I use an eclectic counseling approach to meet the needs of every client. I also see children as young as 4 years of age and aim to help them explore their emotions through their own language.. play.

I believe that everyone who walks into my office comes with their own unique personality and life experiences; I don't believe that the same approach works for everyone. People are so much more than the diagnosis or "label" they are given. Getting to know my clients and building a trusting relationship is the most important part of therapy. In the end, my goal is to help my clients rely on their own strengths and successes to help them through personal challenges.

It's my understanding that emotions are my mind and body's way of telling me something about my life experience. However, emotions can be uncomfortable, scary, and overwhelming. It requires vulnerability and courage to ask for help getting to understand these feelings better. I strive to help clients better understand their life experiences and feelings however they may show up. I have seen clients with trauma, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, existential issues, codependency, behavioral issues, grief, divorce, family conflict, autism, ADHD, & more. I work with children as young as 3 years old, adolescents, adults, & families.

No matter what traumatic events you or your child may have experienced, every person has an opportunity to grow into a whole and healthy being. Because of the misunderstandings and chaos that often result from childhood trauma, Tammy works from an attachment lens, seeing behavior as the different ways people have chosen to survive the traumatic circumstances they have experienced. Tammy works with children, adolescents, and adults.

Hello! I'm Emma, and I am passionate about using my practice to empower my clients to find peace and self-worth. It is my goal to help you discover yourself by meeting you where you are right now, and to support you in finding self-driven solutions to your individual needs. I take this approach because I recognize that each person is the expert of their own life. When working with children, I enjoy play therapy because it is especially well suited to learning, exploration, and self-expression in the language of children, which is play.

What type of Lafayette mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Lafayette?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
