My name is Natalie and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist and Associate Professional Clinical Counselor under the supervision of our founder Linda Meier Abdelsayed, LMFT. I grew up in Napa Valley, CA.
You feel stuck in an endless cycle of emotional blackmail. One moment, your partner is loving and everything is normal. The next, they explode and cite you as the root of all their problems. The unpredictability is exhausting. You care about this person but feel like they are breaking you down. You want to save the relationship, but your boundaries are being ignored and you are beginning to lose sight of who you are. You are so busy trying to avoid conflict that when you look in the mirror, you don't recognize who you see anymore.
You crave feeling happy and like yourself again. While you cannot control how the other person acts, you want to change the way you respond to their outbursts. You want to feel confident in your decisions, managing your emotions, and establishing healthy communication patterns. I can help you get there.
I am available for in-person (walk-and-talk) and teletherapy sessions. I view clients holistically and aim to help you live a life that aligns well with both your personal and cultural values. Clients enjoy that I'm open-minded, honest, and compassionate. Visit my website to learn more and schedule your first appointment. I look forward to speaking with you!
