Natalie DeRose, B.A., M.Psy, Can.
Seeking help can be an overwhelming and intimidating experience. In therapy I strive to create a safe and non-judgemental environment where clients feel comfortable sharing their stories. I look at my clients through a holistic lens, often using multiple perspectives to help an individual better understand themselves. I want to understand who you are as a whole, recognizing where you have been, where you are now, and where you would like to be in the future. I believe that through collaboration and a client-centred approach, we can reach your goals together.
I am currently a Master of Psychology candidate at Adler Graduate Professional School. My areas of interest include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, interpersonal relationships, life transitions, mood concerns, grief, emotion regulation, coping skills, family conflict, sleep disturbances, and stress management
My work is currently supervised by Dr. Alana Tappin.

I believe that lasting, positive change comes from self-awareness and the use of concrete tools to work on your goals. I will work with you to understand your emotions, thoughts and actions. In therapy, I work using an integrative approach with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, emotional dysregulation, self-esteem, life transitions, and interpersonal relationships. I have great interest and experience in working with concerns of diversity, improving family relationships, parenting support, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, and depression.
