Professional statement

Natasha Walter-Fisk is a highly qualified therapist / counselor with expertise in EMDR, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, negative thinking and relationship issues. Natasha has a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. She has been a therapist since 2005. In private practice since 2013, working online since 2018, before the pandemic, she combines passions for healing emotional pain and trauma, cross-cultural communication, work and travel.

She serves people throughout California, Colorado, Minnesota and in international locations and has multiple therapy and counseling licenses. She has lived in the California Bay Area, (San Francisco, Oakland, Marin), Fort Collins, CO; Minneapolis, MN and Europe using end-to-end encrypted, HIPAA and GDPR compliant Zoom for therapists. Everything is private and confidential.

Natasha is anti-racist, acknowledges the land we are on and the people we took it from and their ancestors, is LGBTQI+ affirming, sex positive, culturally humble.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, an evidence-based therapy, is Natasha's go to for dealing with triggers from memories stored in the brain, body and emotions, PTSD, trauma and adverse experiences, reducing distress and negative self-concepts. She also uses Internal Family Systems (IFS) to resolve internal conflict. The idea of IFS is that we are a mosaic of parts that have our best interests at heart and once we work with them, our inner critic will become positive, and our inner child will heal, and our body will feel better.
