Natasha Johnson is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker located in Cambridge, MA. Natasha specializes in providing adults with anxiety, depression, chronic illness, or caregiver fatigue strategies to overcome their challenges and lead balanced, engaging lives. Many of Natasha’s clients face major life transitions and want to address long standing issues that have held them back in the past. She also enjoys working with students and artists who face pressure to achieve or perform.
Natasha’s approach to therapy is based on helping clients derive insights from their thoughts, emotions, instincts, and needs. She utilizes psychoanalytic and psychodynamic therapy, as well as mindfulness and narrative therapy. Clients learn new skills and strategies to employ in their everyday lives so they can effectively cope with difficult feelings or situations. Natasha believes that each person has innate resilience that they can tap into when facing difficult things, and strives to show her clients that they can change their life patterns to better serve them.
Natasha earned Master’s degrees in Psychotherapy and Mindfulness Studies. She completed a post-graduate fellowship in psychoanalytic theory and has over 10 years of experience working with cancer patients and their caregivers.
