“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
Natalia has worked in education for the last 20 years and holds degrees in communication, media, and culture.
Natalia believes all human beings have an innate capacity to thrive and become the version of ourselves that is most authentic and most fulfilling. Such growth often requires that we examine our lives and remain open to making bold choices and changes. As challenges cause us to struggle on our path, we do not have to do battle alone. Therapy can be a source of support and relief as we move through life.
Natalia is passionate about helping people on their journey and considers being allowed into their lives a privilege. Natalia is committed to working with clients in a collaborative manner, honoring their uniqueness, and meeting them where they are to achieve their desired goals. Natalia offers a judgment-free, compassionate, and safe space for clients to explore their world and she prioritizes their agency by empowering them to be in charge of this process.
When Natalia is not teaching, studying, or at the clinic, she enjoys writing, reading, going to concerts, and traveling the world.
