A Little Bit About Natasha...

I am a Mental Health Counselor and Certified Life Coach, who enjoys helping others reach their full potential. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, moved to Massachusetts for graduate school, and there is nowhere else I'd rather be. I love discovering the world through travel, having been to numerous countries, which include volunteering in Armenia, studying abroad in Italy, and sky-diving over the Swiss alps! I have an adventurous spirit and am a true optimist at heart. I am newly married, transitioning into the role and new home with the loving support of our bengal kitten, Luigi. I speak Armenian and am currently immersed in an Italian language course. Cultures and languages fascinate me and I also enjoy antiques, concerts and musicals, photography, reading, running, writing and I love the beauty of therapy. I challenge myself daily, have a deep appreciation for relationships, old and new, the ongoing journey of self-discovery and the possibility in every given day. 

 

WHY DID YOU BECOME A THERAPIST?

I completed a master's degree in Education and immensely enjoyed working with children on the autism spectrum. Through my one-to-one experiences, I became increasingly more interested in learning the complexities of human behavior and functioning. Furthermore, the therapeutic support I received throughout my own life fostered the understanding of how powerful and profound therapy can be.
