Professional statement

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.

Message to clients

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression or are struggling to navigate a challenging life transition, you may find yourself feeling overwhelmed and at a loss for how to move towards a more balanced, joyful life. While it is natural to need support during challenging times, it does not always feel natural to seek therapy. Yet many times, this type of support can be the objective lens that is needed to help you feel better. Through compassionate, supportive therapy, you can develop your capacity for self-awareness, connect to your unique strengths and develop new skills that help to better navigate life issues.

I utilize a holistic approach to treatment and together we will create a multifaceted therapeutic plan that integrates talk therapy as well as research from mindfulness, neuroscience, and psychoanalytic theory. While therapy is sometimes seen as something that makes you feel better, my goal is to help you live a better, more wholehearted life by understanding, your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

I bring a compassionate, attentive presence to each session. My clients describe me as empowering, warm, and respectful with a knack for understanding and helping them to name feelings and behavioral patterns and that ultimately help them move towards transforming their lives. I hold a deep belief in the ability of people to grow and heal. While my work draws from several clinical theories, is always focused on the human connection. I would be glad to hear from you to start our work together.
