I practice integratively - this means I have been trained in several treatment modalities, which allows me to provide an individualized treatment plan.

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.

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.
