It has only been a couple months since I finished my breakthroughs process with Natalie, but I am already experiencing positive, life-changing differences in my mindset, emotions, and belief system. When I came to Natalie, I struggled loving myself and accepting myself, especially accepting myself as a sexual being. This resulted in an immense amount of shame and keeping myself deprived from good things in my life that were meant to nourish me and meet my needs. While talk therapy was immensely helpful, the Breakthrough Process was what really allowed me to revisit the moments in my past where I had learned to reject myself and my needs and desires. It allowed me to heal from past events and take away more powerful and positive lessons for my future. Since we finished the process, I have had so much more belief in myself. I have been so much more present and able to find contentment in whatever moment I am in. And I have been able to build more honest and intimate relationships (both with friends and romantic partner). While I used to numb myself by drifting off into a fabricated sexual fantasy world, I now find that instead I can focus on what I want, and actually believe that it is possible!

I am extremely grateful for Time Line Therapy. I’ve suffered from significant mental health issues for many years and for many reasons. I felt I was going in circles just talking about some of the same issues over and over again in the many years I’ve been in regular therapy, but one poignant breakthrough in particular was getting past emotional “stuckness” from abuse I suffered as a young child. Thank you, Natalie, for your amazing heart on my journey in TLT!!
TLT has been an amazing and eye-opening exploration into the self; Providing avenues of thought and outlets for problems and issues in my life that I would not have been able to take hold of if I had gone any other route. The level of peace and renewed understanding of personal self-care achieved has proven to be empowering as well as enlightening. I had issues of anger, depression, and sexual addiction that only begat more of the same. I knew I needed to dig deeper for the answers but didn’t really know how to. TLT provided me the knowledge and wisdom needed to do the work myself (with aid, of course) of getting to the root of my issues and reframing how I think about them and utilize them/draw from them to deal with present and future situations that arise. I found myself not overreacting to stimuli that would have usually caused a sharp and steep decline into anxiety, depression, and/or anger, and hope seems to set in in a way that provides fulfillment and relaxation to help me properly assess and have faith for the future, regardless of how the present looks like. Over time, I found myself thinking to myself how shocking it was that I hadn’t given in to sexual release as a means of self-medication, as if the reason for why I had initially done so had been satisfied by spiritual/non-physical means.
It has been a life-changing experience working with Natalie. When I came to her, I was dealing with symptoms of depression and anxiety, a constant sense of shame, and feeling like I had no control of my life. Natalie is very empathetic and warm, but she will also tell you the truth even when it is a little hard to hear. She knows what she is talking about and is trained in a variety of different treatment methods which she will pull from as needed. She gives great homework assignments and expects you to do the work. Most of these have been really instrumental eye-opening for me. She has helped me get to where I no longer feel like a victim, but I have a say in how my life goes. I have learned to be kinder to myself and how to have more effective and positive relationships. My work with her has been part of a huge turning point in my life, and I whole-heartedly recommend her, whatever your need may be.
I've had the opportunity to work with Natalie and can recommend her without reservation. Natalie is a kind and compassionate professional who is concerned that I am making progress towards my personal goals. Natalie listens well, and beyond that, is able to "hear" what's really being said. Natalie comes prepared to each meeting and expects the same of her clients. She is able to start up exactly where a previous appointment left off. This won't be just "talk therapy". Bring a notebook and expect "homework." She handles conflict well and there isn't anything I don't feel comfortable discussing. Appointment times are flexible, easy to schedule and the office is centrally located. I would not hesitate to recommend her!
I have received excellent care in a very safe and caring environment. The therapist was very skilled and prepared each week to work with me. Her main concern was to help me reach my goal of alleviating severe pelvic floor pain. My work with her was easy and non-judgemental. When I began, I wasn’t sure if I really believed that this kind of treatment would have any correlation to my medical problem. Now, I’ve gained back my functioning and peace in a way that I had almost given up on trying to get. It has definitely been a life altering experience and I highly recommend it.
