Before joining Neighborcare Health, Natalie worked at various schools throughout King County. Most recently she was a mental therapist at Madrona K-8 School. She has background in running grief and loss (bereavement) support groups and has volunteered with Providence Hospice of Seattle.
Natalie has also volunteered at Camp Erin (a grief camp for kids in King County through Safe Crossings and the Moyer Foundation) for the past four years. Although she was born in California, she has spent much of her life in the Pacific Northwest. She loves to travel and has visited Italy, Spain, France, The Netherlands, Belgium and Mexico. In her spare time Natalie enjoys spending time outdoors, running, camping, hiking, practicing yoga, reading and music.
Why I Work at Neighborcare:
I am proud to work for an agency that provides accessible health care services to ALL families despite their level of income. I love working with the students and families at our school-based health centers! I am regularly humbled by the experiences of my clients and I am very passionate about providing a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment where students can share their stories, focus on their social and emotional well being and make positive life changes.
