Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an evidence-based therapy endorsed by the Veterans Administration and World Health Organization. Natasha uses it to deal 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. When we work with them, release pain from the past and integrate that healing, our inner critic becomes positive, our inner child heals, we feel better. We are freed to be who we want to be and live the life we .
