I have over 20 years experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in various child and adolescent treatment settings: private practice, child inpatient psychiatric units, child and adolescent residential treatment centers, juvenile justice facilities and child advocacy centers. I was qualified as an expert witness in childhood trauma and child abuse in several metro Atlanta counties and conducted over 300 child and adolescent forensic interviews. I have published on various mental health topics regarding children and family dynamics. I also taught child psychology at the undergraduate level and conducted numerous workshops and trainings on parenting, child abuse and trauma, depression, stress and anger management and child abuse mandated reporting.
I received my BA from Emory University and both my M.Ed and Ed.S from the University of Florida. I am a Certified Professional Counselors Supervisor and am also a registered out-of-state Telemental Health Provider for the State of Florida (TPMC4) and therefore can see FL residents.
I approach counseling as a relationship in which you are the expert of your own life. My job is to meet you where you are now and help empower you to resolve your own issues during and after therapy. Drawing from cognitive-behavioral (CBT), solution focused and rational emotive behavior therapies together we will strive to change a situation that no longer works so you can live your best life.
I look forward to working with you.

LPC #LPC003411 (Expires: 2022-09-30)
Natasha is a great counsellor and does her job with ease. She has helped me with stress, anxiety, and friendship issues. She is an amazing counsellor just to talk to. She is very comforting and puts lots of effort into an individual. Before I had this time with her, I was probably in the worst place that I could ever be. It was to the point where I couldn’t sleep because I was too worried about my future. I was also very stressed about school at the time. I didn’t want my marks to drop or my parents to think of me as a failure. In just one month, Natasha has changed me completely. I can sleep properly, I know how to deal with stress and anxiety and I have lots of techniques for these types of situations. She is such a great counsellor to talk to if you need help with stress, anxiety or anything at all. I rate Natasha a 10/10 because of how much effort she puts into changing you for the better.
Natasha is a great counselor and always says exactly what I need to here. Even in the toughest of situations where I feel like I’m stuck, I immediately feel better and comforted after discussing with Natasha.
I was in a big life crisis, Natasha was always there for me and shortly after our session I managed to go through it and actually change my life. I realized my worth and I feel like my life quality is changing day by day.
I’m very thankful to Natasha for being supportive, understanding and giving me practical techniques to help every time I really needed it. I always felt calm and safe while opening a session with her.
I highly recommend you to work with Natasha in case you’re completely lost and feel like your life will never be good again. You’ll get better very soon.
Natasha is such a warm and empathetic therapist that makes it feel safe to be with uncomfortable and difficult emotions. In my time working with her, I find that I have a much better sense of positive self-regard and greater clarity on what drives me and what I can take the steering wheel back from. I appreciate each session and the growth I gain in every session working with her. If you're looking for support in whatever you're going through, she is the counselor for you. Please work with her if you get the chance to!
Great listener! Gets into detail. Very sweet.
I wasn't sure how I'd feel about text-only sessions, but being able to contact Natasha during my moments of intense sadness and anxiety has been really helpful. I'm able to capture what I'm feeling, and Natasha is great at getting to the root of the problem while offering helpful and kind advice. She also provides virtual worksheets that help me work through my anxieties and build up my confidence!
She is simply the best. I am way more at peace, non-suicidal, and finally finding my way to happiness. I am so grateful for her guidance and non-judgement. She is thorough and consistent. She honest, kind, and respectful in her approach.
One of the best counselors.
I love how Natasha is able to try new methods of therapy but motivation to keep moving forward when I feel down. Thank you for all that you do I appreciate you :)
Natasha is a good and adaptive listening skills; helping dearly to fix the issues at hand with well thought-out advice and methods.
Natasha is an excellent and prompt communicator with great attention and care to correspondence. I would recommend her to anyone in need of her service.
Natasha is very understanding an has been able to help me identify certain behaviors I have, and also has helped me in seeing how these behaviors affect my view of self and my views on needing help. I highly recommend her to anyone that struggles with talking to others about their feelings or is anxious/nervous about counseling.
Extremely professional and but extremely passionate person about her work! She gives a very genuine reply and even takes into account what my husband and kids think and behave when I put it across to her verbatim.
Writing to her is like a soundboard to me! So, I take steps or act on things once I have written to her :-)
Sometimes, I write through the day if I feel vulnerable and sometimes only update her end of the day!
She responds to me almost daily and sometimes more than once if she has read it!
Also teen counseling app has this great facility of having weekly sessions and keep writing, which I really like as it is helping me a lot!
So yeah, all in all Dr. Natasha Dedijer-Turner is a very good counselor and she really is helping me out to come out of my shell and act accordingly!
Natasha has been a wonderful, positive influence on our relationship. Her expertise, calm demeanour and empathy have been key in helping us heal. Would highly recommend

Natasha is a great therapist! Her counseling helped me a lot. Recommend her.
Natasha has given me realistic and helpful tools for improving my anxiety and self-esteem. She has a keen ability to shift my perspective when I am intensely worrying about something. And I see a difference in the way I handle my anxiety the last few months. I highly recommend Natasha!
Natasha is a very insightful, kind and compassionate counselor. Her gentle, professional approach to guiding you through a problem shows her empathy and understanding. She helped me see some childhood issues that I hadn’t addressed in years.
She’s great at what she does. She really helped me change my perspective on life. If I had to do it all over again I’d do it with her without any doubt.
Natasha has been a truly amazing counselor! I now feel that I have the confidence to face challenges as they come. Natasha helped me to reflect on why I might be feeling a certain way, while providing me with some tools to cope with my anxiety as needed. She was incredibly understanding and helped me to set realistic goals with myself and others. Not only can I tell that our counseling sessions helped, but also others have commented on the positive changes I have made. She's awesome!
Natasha has been very thoughtful and understanding and has provided me with useful tools to understand myself better and help me deal with my issues. She replied quickly to all my questions in our chat session and during our weekly live calls I felt safe and understood, and that I can openly share all my thoughts and feelings with her.
I am very pleased with Natasha's help - she is insightful, smart and a good listener. She gave me very useful advice and listened with empathy, making me feel empowered to make some changes in a time when I was feeling overwhelmed.
Natasha is a really great counsellor. She is very knowledgable and professional. What I especially like about Natasha is that she is very professional but at the same time also very simple. She can explain a very complicated topic in a couple of very simple words and examples. I was extremely lucky that we matched.
I'm grateful that Natasha was assigned to me. She really is the expert in family conflict. She explained about the cause of my problem since the beginning. I've been wondering and depressed about my life for a long time, and no other counselor could give a spot-on explanation. Thank you.
Natasha is very approachable and easy to talk to. She is a great listener and very respectful and is cognizant of what her clients' priorities are. She offers a variety of therapy approaches and was very beneficial to me.
Natasha is a great counselor and really listens to my needs. Not just what I say but what I am not saying. Her advice and expertise has greatly impacted my life and I look forward to continuously working with her to strengthen my mental health!
I have reviewed Natasha before, but again I can't say enough about how thankful I am for her and her expertise. She has guided me through the worst season of my life and I'm so much happier, and thinking clearer, straighter---- all because of her and her strategies. She has helped me make sense of everything :) I appreciate her so much!
I like working with Natasha. She sends me handouts that help, she helps with my primary concerns and if there's an issue in my life that I need to talk about she's ready to help me talk through it.
She does a lot to get to the root of your problem and helps you to correctly see your past, present, and future in a way that will be most beneficial to you. She’s a blessing.
Natasha has been dedicated to helping me be at peace and has provided me with so many resources to practice self-care as well as opportunities to rewire my thoughts to help me become a better version of myself. She listens to all my needs and provides a safe environment to speak whatever is on my mind! =)
Natasha has been terrific so far. We’ve had one video call and had many text messages. I have found her to be incredibly empathetic, flexible and understanding. She is helping me write very realistic goals for my treatment as she very clearly understands that’s what I need right now . I am really enjoying working with Natasha and am looking forward to more sessions.
Such a great experience! Love our time working with her.
