Professional statement

Natalie Asalgado is a bilingual, Latinx social worker and psychotherapist based in New York City. She specializes in working with adults who are exploring what their race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality mean to them, experiencing anxiety and depression, adjusting to new environments, or working on improving their communication with loved ones.

During sessions, Natalie combines her knowledge of psychodynamic theory, emotionally focused therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy with an anti-oppressive lens to help clients better understand how they can use their strengths to navigate everyday life.

Natalie received her Certificate in Family and Couples Therapy at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy. She obtained her Master of Social Work from New York University and Bachelor of Arts in Public Health from Brown University. She previously interned with the Young Center for Immigrant Children's Rights and the Children's Day Unit at the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

Natalie is currently seeing English and Spanish-speaking clients remotely.


Message to clients

We are all drawn to therapy for a variety of reasons - maybe we're navigating a new time in our life, exploring our relationships with others, or figuring out what it means to be ourselves. These complex processes happen within larger systems that impact the ways in which we think, feel, and act.

Our social identities inform how we experience the world - and how the world perceives us. With a trauma-informed and anti-oppressive approach, I hope to understand your concerns, validate your struggles, highlight your strengths, and challenge your thoughts. You are the expert of your lived experiences. I offer you a space where we work together in service of your growth.

I tailor my practice to your needs by combining my training in different modalities to increase your self-awareness and help you live a life that is better aligned to your values. I invite you to schedule a free phone consultation with me.
