Natalie sees therapy as a space to take on the challenging work of identity-exploration, healing and growth. Natalie's process is warm, compassionate, collaborative, and non-judgmental. Environmental, systemic, and political forces are always central to Natalie's approach to understanding mental health.


Prior to starting her MSW program, Natalie worked as a paralegal providing psychosocial and legal support to individuals appealing capital sentences in the federal criminal justice system. She also has years of experience as a peer mental health advocate and believes wholeheartedly in the value of peer support services and community-based healing.
