Hello! My name is Natalia Michaelson and I am an Associate Clinical Social Worker (#98289) working under the supervision of Dr. Megan Phillips (PSY28184). I earned my Master of Social Work degree at Simmons University and my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University, San Marcos. I have worked in community mental health, healthcare, and private practice settings and have experience working with adults, teens, and couples. I provide therapy for depression, anxiety, stress, unresolved trauma, interpersonal violence, grief and loss, and life transitions.
Sometimes life’s challenges and experiences can feel overwhelming and intense. You don’t have power through alone. Reaching out for support through therapy can be a great way to help you tackle these challenges. I am committed to providing you with a safe, supportive, and validating environment. My intention is that our work together promotes self-discovery, self-empowerment, growth, and healing. I will move at your pace and tailor my approach based on your individual needs.
I use psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral frameworks to guide my work. During our sessions, we will explore your goals, strengths, coping skills, values, core beliefs, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. We will work to deepen your insight, increase your self-awareness, and expand your existing coping skills. In addition to this work, the therapeutic relationship plays a critical role in therapy. I will work with you to strengthen our relationship, so you feel supported and heard.
If you feel like we would be a good fit, I would love to work with you and accompany you on your journey to growth and healing!
