Natalie's Clinical Philosophy
Natalie’s clinical philosophy is grounded in evidence-based and trusted clinical methods, paired with a commitment to individualized treatment. No two people are the same, so no two therapy plans should look the same! Early in the therapeutic process, she takes the time to learn about the client’s functional needs. She establishes a foundation of understanding the specific outcomes that the patient is looking to achieve and forms a collaborative partnership to meet those goals. Natalie tailors her knowledge of best practices to the unique learning style of each patient.
