After obtaining her doctoral degree, she continued working for another nine years with Sacramento County as a member of the Intensive Placement Team. Her career in the county was spent working as part of a multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, nurses, outpatient service providers, pharmacists, and dietitians.

Natalie’s clinical interests include providing motivation for behavioral change and emotional healing in her clients. This includes assisting with current life transitions, pain from the past, being overwhelmed with emotions, or worries about the future. She has an appreciation for working with adults, families, couples, and adolescents. Incorporating a mindfulness-based approach, Natalie uses narrative exposure therapy, attachment-based approaches, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with her clients.

Natalie’s continued work with individuals in recovery of mental illness has been a valuable and rewarding experience. She also has established clinical skills in working with depression, anxiety, grief, loss, trauma, self-harm behaviors, relationship issues, eating disorders and overcoming addiction. She believes that acceptance, collaboration, and a shared commitment develop into trust, furthering a client’s ability to reach his or her goals.

In her time at home, she has a full life with her husband, two sons and five dogs. Natalie is entertained by reading, going to the movies, treasure hunting at thrift stores and listening to music.
