“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
Natasha is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree in Social Work with a minor in child studies from Miami University (Ohio) and then went on to earn her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Utah.
Natasha has been working with children, teens, and families for many years in different capacities. In social work, she has held positions in medical settings, children’s services, outpatient centers, residential treatment centers, crisis intervention, and school-based services.
Natasha is passionate about using a holistic, integrative approach to therapy. She understands that each client needs an individualized treatment and alters her techniques to each client. Natasha believes that each person is the expert in their own lives and works to accompany them in that self-discovery.
Above all else, Natasha strives to create a safe, healthy, comfortable, and supportive relationship with every one of her clients. She believes it is important for each client to have a solid connection with their therapist in order for therapy to be beneficial. Natasha encourages people to change “attention-seeking” to “connection seeking” as connection is the foundation for healing and improvement.
Natasha works with children, adolescents, and young adults (ages 12-35 primarily). She specializes in working with clients with stress, anxiety, adjustment and relationship issues, depression, PTSD and trauma-related issues, and chronic medical conditions.
Natasha particularly loves to integrate experiential therapies, EMDR, CBT, animal-assisted therapy, and solution-focused therapy techniques. Therapy should be enlightening, challenging, and enjoyable. Additionally, Natasha will be offering evaluations for Emotional Support Animals in the near future.
Natasha is in-network with Anthem BCBS, Cigna, United Healthcare, and UMR, and will be in-network with Aetna soon. Please contact our Client Care Coordinator, Andrea Harpster, at email@example.com or 314-561-9757 option 1 to inquire about appointment availability with Natasha.
