Professional statement

Natasha Walter-Fisk specializes in helping clients manage anxiety and deal adverse experiences, perfectionism, Imposter Syndrome, over thinking, trauma and adverse experiences. She has been providing therapy / counseling online since 2018; this has allowed her to combine work and travel. Natasha is anti-racist, LGBTQ+ affirming, sex positive, passionate about illuminating cultural differences of all kinds.

She uses an eclectic blend of therapies including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to process trauma and adverse experiences. This evidence-based therapy helps reduce distress, negative self-concepts and triggers associated with memories stored in the brain, body and emotions. Natasha uses Internal Family Systems (IFS) to resolve internal conflict. The premise of IFS is that we are made up of parts that have our best interests at heart and once we work with the parts, the inner critic will transform into a positive force and the inner child will heal.

Natasha serves people throughout California, Colorado, Minnesota and international locations. Natasha has multiple therapy and counseling licenses and has lived in the Bay Area, (San Francisco, Oakland, Marin), Fort Collins, CO; Minneapolis, MN and Europe.

She uses an encrypted, confidential, HIPAA and GDPR compliant Zoom account for therapists. Nobody can see, listen or record without your permission.

Natasha has a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, Palo Alto. Over the years, Natasha has worked in private practice, at crisis centers, with court-involved teens and teens and their families in day treatment.

In addition to teaching crucial concepts that support wellbeing, Natasha helps clients be more compassionate with themselves, use mindfulness to reduce stress, practice skills to manage anxiety and eliminate distress and low self-esteem caused by the past.

Message to clients

Is the anxiety, over thinking or stress too much? High performance demands? Feeling that you're not good enough? Did your family have high expectations? Or were they critical? Do your perfectionist tendencies lead to anxiety? Maybe you can reason with yourself, but the emotions don't change.

Or did something happen to you? Maybe you don't think about it, but you wonder what it would be like not to feel so reactive.

We can deal with these issues together.

Imagine feeling confident that what *you* think matters, you're a good person, you have choices, you create your own safety now, you're the boss of you, you are a unique person, you actually like yourself. Imagine managing those human moments of low self-confidence with kindness. See yourself feeling relieved, lighter, more you, on the way to being the person you want to be and the life you want to live.

Please visit my website then click the scheduling button (There's one on every page.) to set up a free, 20 minute video consult or schedule a phone call through Zencare. Let's see if we're a good fit and set up regular appointments.

Looking forward to talking with you!
