MY HOLISTIC APPROACH

As human beings, we all face difficult seasons of life. It is my intention as a therapist to sit with my clients in a way that fosters growth, healing, and empowerment. I am professionally trained in somatic psychotherapy, and this is the foundation for my work. Somatic psychotherapy is a holistic approach that incorporates the mind, body, and spirit in treatment. At the same time, I believe it is important to incorporate other modalities to meet the specific needs of my clients, so I also draw from mindfulness-based, compassionate, and humanistic approaches. I provide a direct and non-judgmental container for my clients to take a deep dive into their feelings and experiences to support their healing. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative one, so I encourage my clients to join me in navigating the direction that is best for them and their goals.

Natalie Alderson West Coast Integrative Therapist in California

I am passionate about supporting relationships in solidifying a foundation of trust, co-regulation, and effective communication. I have experience supporting families and couples in breaking habits of codependency, while creating a safe space to discuss any issues that need to be explored. I have seen time and time again how having hard conversations leads to more fun, joy, and connection in relationships. I also use the somatic approach to support you in regulating your nervous system while building the communication skills necessary to improve your relationship.

 

I am passionate about serving the LGBTQIA+ community, and have openings for LGBTQIA+ identified families, couples and teens. My areas of focus are supporting those struggling with addiction recovery, trauma/PTSD, and anxiety, and relationship issues.  I have been working as a therapist for the last 5 years and am passionate about creating a safe, non-judgmental space for you to process your feelings, and begin to heal yourself and your relationships.

 

I am currently taking new clients for couples and family therapy.  Contact me today to explore how I can support you on your path forward!
