Registered Psychiatric Nurse
As a Registered Psychiatric Nurse (RPN), Natasha has had the opportunity to work in a variety of mental health programs including: acute psychiatry, in-patient behavioural treatment programs, psychiatric emergency room nursing, crisis services, community mental health and most recently private practice. Prior to starting her private practice in 2015, Natasha also had the privilege to be a member of a Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) team for a local regional health authority providing DBT to clients both as an individual therapist as well as a group facilitator.
"I work with clients in a holistic manner and address any concerns that clients may have about their mental health, and to help promote wellness. I’ve received advanced training in various modes of behavioral therapies, such as CBT, DBT and ACT. These types of therapies can work well in helping clients manage problematic symptoms, decrease maladaptive behaviours and gain insight into thought patterns and actions."
An initial assessment is often completed in the first session(s) and recommendations for treatment are based on the assessment results. Treatment plans are made in collaboration with clients and can be modified at any point as deemed necessary.
With over a decade of experience, I have worked with diverse clientele and have become familiar with complex mental health diagnosis and concerns. My specialities include working with others that struggle with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder, crisis management, coping skills and trauma.
