I am a licensed clinical social worker in California who has been working for five years as 1-on-1 therapist. I have a background in psychology research at University of Southern California, Boston University, and Harvard University and have also worked as a residential eating disorder treatment center and the hospital setting. I have worked both inpatient as well as in intensive outpatient care. I have also done psychological testing in private practice and am currently seeing clients remotely as an individual therapist. I have worked with both adult and teenage clients dealing with PTSD, trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relationship issues, processing disorders, and life changes.
I draw on cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, attachment-based, and humanistic therapy in my practice. I believe in providing a warm, compassionate listening ear for my clients and helping to promote their confidence, mastery, and self-esteem. The most important part of therapy is your relationship with your therapist and every patient deserves a counselor that they feel safe, respected, and understood with.
I will work with you to determine what is most important to you, what your goals are, what your needs are, and what strengths you have. Our treatment plan will be centered around all of these things and will be custom-tailored with you, and only you, in mind. This is never easy, but I hope that working together we can make it at least a little easier on you.

LCSW #97456 (Expires: 2022-10-31)
She really takes time to listen to what you have to say and is spot on about what's going on with you. She's also very understanding
Ms. Phillips has been amazingly helpful in just a short amount of time, and creates a strong environment of support to allow for open and honest and transparent communication at all times.
So far, we're only a couple of sessions in but I think our counselor is great! Our daughter has been reluctant in the past, but she is showing up and talking about things, so that's great!
Even after just a few sessions, Natasha is already an outstanding therapist! Talking with her is easy, and I feel understood even when I worry that I’m not making sense. She really goes above and beyond for her clients!
Natasha is great. She’s helped me piece together so many things and she asks great questions to make you think. She’s also got a cheerful tone and is very friendly, creates a comfortable environment. 100% recommend :)
