Natasha believes that each of us is inherently worthy and deserves to exist as our fullest selves. Through curiosity, compassion, and radical genuineness, Natasha seeks to co-create an affirmative space in which you may explore intersecting identities, process feelings, and cultivate hope and meaning. Natasha’s therapeutic approach emphasizes centering your lived experiences, meeting you where you are, and moving at your pace. She believes in the profound power of the therapeutic relationship to facilitate vulnerability, connection, and growth. The process of sharing in your pursuit of deeper self-love, acceptance and knowledge is a humbling experience that Natasha feels honored to be a part of.

 

Naming and untangling the ways in which oppressive societal, political, and institutional forces are embedded in and impact our day-to-day lives is a source of passion for Natasha. She also recognizes the value in reflecting on how both our past informs our present. Her clinical experience includes working with young children, adolescents, and people of color. Natasha practices from a trauma-informed, strengths-based, and liberatory lens. She also draws on play therapy.
