In 2019, I retired from a local Law Enforcement agency where I provided crisis intervention services to the community. It was a remarkable 20-year career helping people on "the worst day of my life." Many of those calls for service included assisting individuals and families dealing with mental illness, addiction, domestic violence, sex crimes, child and elder abuse/neglect, and death-related situations (natural, suicide, homicide, and accidental). I learned three things; people are incredibly resilient, desperate to be heard, and open to options when respect and trust exist. My ideal client meets all three.
I offer in-home and telehealth counseling. My work and personal history lend themselves well to assist many individuals and families. In addition, I have a particular interest in working with First Responders, both sworn and civilian.
If you are interested in speaking with an open-minded, culturally competent, and creative solutions therapist, please reach out with your inquiry or interest. I welcome challenging, complicated, and creative content issues. Thank you.
I look forward to assisting you!

I have been having session for about four months , and I can say Natalie has listened and offered many resources to help me. During this process I know I am getting better , and soon will be able to move forward without having sessions and although I will miss Natalie this is a testament to how well she does her job and cares for her patients.

Natalie made me feel comfortable and safe during our sessions. I had never done any counseling before. She had great resources and helped me deal with my husbands alcoholism. I would highly recommend Natalie.

Natalie has been wonderful throughout my sessions. She seems to really care about the people she works with. I was nervous about doing this in the beginning, but Natalie had a way of making me feel at ease almost immediately.
