My Approach to Helping
Welcome! My name is Natalie and I am a psychotherapist in private practice at Newport Couple & Family Therapy. My core belief in the therapeutic process is that healing, growth, and recovery are possible. I believe that humans are innately resilient and resourceful beings with a basic need to be in relationship to others.
My clinical focus is in: marriage/relationship issues, premarital counseling, substance misuse, addiction and chemical dependency evaluation, anxiety, depression, attachment trauma (abandonment, loss, abuse, affair, etc.) inter-generational issues, family of origin issues, major life transitions, self harm/injury, and adolescents.
My approach to psychotherapy is holistic in that I will encourage attention to your biological, psychological, social and relational development as important aspects to overall health and well-being. My personal style is client-centered and collaborative while at the same time, I will empower you to make decisions in align with your personal values and beliefs. I will strive to create an environment where we are able to explore what is most important to you. I will invite your collaboration and value your feedback.
