Natalie Taber MSW, LGSW
Natalie received her Master of Social Work from the University of Minnesota, Masters in Philosophy from University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, and Bachelor of Arts degrees in Religion and Philosophy from Hendrix College. She completed two years post-graduate training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy from the Minnesota Psychoanalytic Society and Institute Training Program, and a yearlong culturally focused therapy graduate fellowship at Kente Circle. Prior to becoming a therapist, Natalie was actively involved in a number of movements working toward social justice. Natalie’s experience is grounded in exploration of identity; her clients tend to be those who hold identities that are not centered in the dominant US culture. In her clinical practice she works with clients impacted by trauma, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, relational problems, and attachment concerns. Natalie has worked especially to support transgender and gender non-conforming clients who are seeking therapeutic support in their journey. She believes that feeling seen and heard by your therapist in a non-judgmental and nurturing space is essential for the work of therapy, and she brings a gentle yet direct approach to partnerships with her clients in working to explore both challenges and possibilities for change.
