Introduction

Hello! My name is Natalie, and I am a Registered Psychotherapist with over two decades of experience in treating physical injuries and delving into the intricate emotional aspects shaping pain. Through my professional journey and completion of a Master’s in Counselling Psychology, I draw upon traditional and holistic therapeutic approaches that bridge the gap between mind and body.

From the Physiotherapy Clinic to the Psychotherapy Space

For over 20 years, I have supported individuals as a physiotherapist with chronic pain on a physical dimension. But a pattern developed and I realized the mental and emotional well-being of my clients frequently surfaced during our physically-focused conversations. This realization led me on a journey back to school, aiming to delve deeper and find holistic approaches to bridge the gap between mind and body towards healing.

I love working with:

My psychotherapy and health counselling and EMDR therapy services extend to a diverse client population, including individuals dealing with chronic pain, postpartum trauma, sports injuries, and paediatrics. In addition I support individuals with ongoing stress, health-related anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma

Offering support for Individuals 12+ with:

  • Chronic Pain
  • Health related Stress and Anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Postpartum Anxiety and Depression
  • Motherhood
  • Depression
  • Grief
  • Generational Trauma

How I help:

By integrating a person-centered philosophy, I foster a nurturing environment where client’s unique narratives are valued. I draw from trauma-informed models of care including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Together we create a personalized therapeutic plan to unravel the interconnected aspects of the body’s physical manifestation of pain and the cognitive, emotional, and behavioural dimensions that entwine with it.

Furthermore, my therapeutic commitment extends to cultural sensitivity and diversity. Through completing a practicum with an Indigenous Family Health Team, I provided culturally informed counselling to members grappling with a range of mental health concerns. Embracing and integrating the wisdom of the seven grandfather teachings and the medicine wheel, I helped members navigate the intricate complexity of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being to holistically guide the member’s paths to healing.

Virtual Psychotherapy Sessions across Ontario:

I extend my psychotherapy, health counselling and EMDR therapy services through virtual sessions, ensuring accessibility and convenience for those seeking holistic guidance and healing from chronic pain, stress, health-related anxiety, and trauma.
