Are you struggling with accepting your true self? Do you feel scared or anxious about being vulnerable with others? Do you find it challenging to communicate effectively in your relationship? I love helping clients connect more fully and authentically to themselves and others. I work with LGBTQ+ couples & individuals, hospitality industry professionals, & adult clients who want help navigating a life transition, managing anxiety, learning self-compassion, setting boundaries, and finding ways to communicate effectively. I also support transgender & gender questioning clients & their loved ones with gender & sexuality exploration, transition, coming out, and letter writing.

I tend to view the therapy process through the lens of the family system as a whole & how past influences may be hindering the way we operate in our current lives. By bringing awareness & compassion to these dynamics, we can begin deciding which aspects to keep & which to let go.

I value authenticity in myself & others & strive to provide clients a genuine, warm, yet honest perspective. That being said, I believe humor (when used appropriately) can be an important part of the healing process and I appreciate the balance it brings when processing what are often heavy or challenging issues.

Natalie Love's Groups

Support for Loved Ones of Transgender Individuals

Savannah Stoute, LPC & myself co-lead a support group for family & loved ones of a transgender individual. This is a unique opportunity for partners, parents, siblings, adult children, or relatives to have a safe, compassionate environment to both receive & offer support. We discuss basic information about biological/anatomical sex vs. gender identity, offer education around terminology & definitions, and allow members the chance to ask difficult questions. After the 8 week sessions are completed, members can continue to share resources and support one another through our private Facebook group. We are currently gathering new members. Inquire via email with interest.

Professional Connections

I’ve had the pleasure of co-facilitating groups with Natalie, so I have seen firsthand that she is a skilled therapist. She is quick to develop rapport and provide empathy when clients need it the most. I would feel confident in my decision to refer any friends or family to her.
