hope is born in the dark

Sometimes life hands us too much. And for some of us, too much is all we’ve ever known.

In our efforts to get through it we may find ourselves waffling between warrior bitch and wilting flower modes.

This can leave us feeling broken. Lost. Vulnerable. Distressed. Overwhelmed. Exhausted. Lonely.

Psychotherapy is a way out. Or better yet, a way IN. A way in to YOUR self.

A way to be both tough AND tender AND everything else in between. A way to cultivate your sense of self. Your voice. Your POWER.

Our healing doesn’t stop there, though. Pleasure is the next step. Pleasure revitalizes our power.

Now we rise up.

let's get started


Reclaim your power.


Pursue your pleasure. For individuals and relationships.


Reset your resilience.


“Natalia was a fantastic resource to have at my disposal during one of the most difficult transition periods I’ve had in my life. Sometimes I felt like I was too much in control, but that’s silly. Therapy is about me and being free to talk about anything made it easier to see that all of my feelings are valid and important. She helped me get to a point where I can begin to validate my own needs instead of feeling petty when I need something. I’ve never had the pleasure of working with a therapist I liked and respected so much and I wish her all the best in her future.”
