Hi, I'm Natalie

Congratulations on making that first step of reaching out and exploring who is available to help. It is such a vulnerable experience to put yourself out there and ask for help.

I've been married (20 years,) divorced, new relationship, adult children, aging parents with health concerns. I'm a friend, a colleague, a parent, about to be a first time grandparent and a psychologist.

I started studying psychology in my 30's and loved it, everything started to make more sense - why people behave as they do, how we think, how we learn, why we do things even when we know it isn't a good idea and why we don't do things when we know we should. Most of our behaviours are learnt, yes we do have some innate qualities and tendencies, but for the most part we learnt them. And if we learn to do things a certain way, well then maybe with the right assortment of tools and strategies we can learn to do things differently.

I have worked in various settings, in occupational rehabilitation and workplace settings. Helping people with injury, chronic pain, adjustment, workplace bullying, anxiety and depression. I have worked in a retreat setting with people working through addictions and maladaptive behaviours. For a number of years I have worked in private practice. I work with adults, just like you, trying to make sense of their world. And I have been told I am good at what I do.

My Approach

My approach is varied, focusing predominately on strategies of Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), I love the approaches of Neuropsychotherapy - but I am currently doing considerable reading on the polyvagal theories and how it relates to trauma.

But most importantly my approach is to listen and to hear, my approach is to help you to feel empowered in order to meet your treatment goals
