Natasha is a part-time therapist at TCFS with a Master’s degree in education, specializing in clinical mental health and school counseling. Natasha works with individuals of all ages and families.
Although she has training in many types of therapeutic interventions, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectal Behavioral Therapy, Jungian Sandplay, and Trauma-Informed therapies, Natasha’s basic belief is in the healing power of supportive connection.
Natasha helps each client discover their unique strengths and experiment with new, or not-that-new, ideas and skills to build confidence and self-acceptance.
Processing grief and loss, breaking the bonds of depression or anxiety, managing anger, building executive skills, practicing relationship communication, navigating the daunting tasks of parenting, school, employment problems and crisis situations, are some of the issues Natasha can assist her clients with.
Natasha also has experience with serious mental illness, disability issues, gender identity and sexuality problems, and suicide. She has worked in K-12 schools, higher education, and non-profit social services. She is currently the school liaison at a behavioral health hospital working with child/adolescent inpatient and outpatient programs.
Natasha enjoys spending time alone, and with her wonderful children, family, and good friends, as well as walking her naughty dog, serving as a lap for her cats, and traveling to Canada (not often enough – usually for holidays), her home country.
