Natasha is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (NC LMFT #1699), meaning she is independently licensed to diagnose and treat mental and emotional disorders in the state of North Carolina. Natasha specializes in individual and family therapy with children, adolescents, and adults experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties. In therapy sessions, Natasha works collaboratively with clients and families toward their personal goals, while providing a safe and nonjudgmental space for self exploration. Natasha will work with you individually, with your partner/spouse, or with the entire family. Family therapy is often the most effective and quickest way to enhance emotional support, increase positive interaction patterns, and improve overall success and functioning.
Natasha draws from internal family systems (IFS) and other systemic approaches in her work with clients and families. IFS is a non-pathologizing therapy that conceives every person as a network of inner parts led by a core Self. Our inner parts can often be at odds with each other, wounded, or in strong protective roles. By fostering relationships between Self and these parts, we can come to understand our parts and heal from past wounds or traumas.
