More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 19

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Virginia and have 19 years of experience working with adults who struggle with mental illness. It has always been my desire to help others, as I enjoy supporting and guiding individuals on this journey called life. I have worked with clients who have been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, Schizophrenia, Alcohol use Disorder, Cocaine use Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. I have also worked with individuals who have dealt with relationship and severe family conflict. It is important to me that a trusting relationship be built between my clients and I, to ensure a healthy therapeutic process.

My counseling style consists of the utilization of Strength-Based, Cognitive Behavioral, Psycho-dynamic, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. It is my belief that it is important for therapists to understand that each client has varying needs, which requires the therapist to adjust their therapeutic approach to attempt to help the client. I value the holistic approach to the therapeutic process, as I feel I am able to help more individuals, when I am open to utilizing various approaches. I also believe that it is important to meet the client where they are and to assist them with what it is they feel they need help with. Utilizing a client's strengths is important, as I am here to help them build upon their abilities to manage their daily lives.

Taking the first step to reach out for help is huge, and I commend anyone and everyone who has decided to make strides to better their lives. Please know that it is an honor for me to be able to assist you along your journey of life, and I look forward to working with you to get you to the next step of where you would like to be. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. Please know that I also offer live sessions, if this is something you would like to do at any point on our therapeutic journey together.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

You remember the one person growing up, that made a huge impact on your life, and helped guide you in the right direction? Well, she's the adulthood version. She will help you navigate and find strength in yourself, that you didn't know you had... AND if you don't hit every mark perfectly each time... she's there to remind you to be kind to yourself. We all get dressed everyday, but sometimes we throw on a shirt backwards, inside out, or even a dirty one. Doesn't mean we suck at dressing ourselves... we just had an off day. Just like the shirt, anxiety, our moods, and mental health all have off days. Natalie is the kind of counselor who depending on the situation; will tell you your shirt is inside out, listen to you complain about the shirt, or remind you... it happens to the best of us. She knows what you need and will adapt to the situation to help you navigate it. I couldn't ask for a more caring, understanding, and INTUNE counselor.

K.A.·May 14, 2020

Overall

I’ve only had one real session so far, but that one alone was a great start. I got to finally get some things out that I couldn’t discuss. She would let me talk whenever something came to mind. She responds very quickly and I feel comfortable already. I am ready to see how future sessions will go.

She has been upgraded from a simple counselor to a dear friend, even though we do not know each other outside of BetterHelp. I always look forward to our calls, feel like she is listening and remembers what we have talked about all other times. I don't just feel like a customer, I feel like a valued human.

Overall

She doesn't judge and is truly there to help when needed. Always available and willing to maneuver her schedule to help. Natalie has helped me resolve and better manage 4 different crippling anxieties, as well as give me strength, when I struggle tackling an issue. Many therapist have worked with me in the past; she is the only one I felt comfortable talking to. Natalie has a gift, a gift she uses to its fully ability to help others. I am truly thankful BetterHelp has such a remarkable employee!

S.A.·Jan 21, 2019

Overall

I was skeptical to do online counseling but I feel like I am face to face with her when we do live chat sessions. I sign out of the live chat feeling so much better each week. She offers suggestions on how to approach problems and asks me the kind of questions that get me thinking. No joke I've had several breakthrough moments during sessions and things become very clear. So many 'ahhh hah' moments. I appreciate her wisdom and her encouragement.

Natalie is a caring and experienced therapist who took the time to understand my problems and give me emotional support. Her godly wisdom helped to uncover some really key issues and helped me to move past them. I can’t say everything is fixed but at least I am on the right track to manage them. Thank you Natalie.

Overall

Working with Natalie has been one of the best thing I could do for myself after i began a stressful new job and got out of a relationship. The transition into getting to know and take care of myself better was really because of her help and support. She is so personable, accessible, and enthusiastic to extend herself that it makes it so enjoyable. I look forward to each and every one of our sessions.

She is awesome!

K.I.·Nov 16, 2017

Overall

Natalie and I just started working together but she is everything that I've looked for in a counselor. She is open, understanding, and empathetic, and I feel as though she does care about me. This job isn't just a paycheck for her. It's a calling, something she's passionate about, and it shows. Her advise is always spot on and people around me have already seen a positive change in the way I've started to view and approach the world.

E.L.·Nov 01, 2017

Overall

Amazing! Its taken my years to find a counsellor who genuinely can relate to my issues, and I feel actually cares about me as a person, not just 'trying to read me and tell me what to do with my life'. She opens up about her life which builds that rapport and makes you feel as if shes a close friend not just a counsellor. My experience with her has been life changing and I am so grateful to God for bringing her into my life! Would definitely recommend! <3
