Nastassja's areas of expertise include: mood and anxiety disorders, addiction, adjustment and self-esteem issues, relational problems, anger management, trauma, and life stressors. Treatment is tailored to each individual person and is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. A holistic therapy approach is utilized, which is the combination of contemporary and alternative treatments with evidence-based practices to assist a person in achieving balance in mind, body, and energy. A deeper understanding of the whole self can lead to increased self-awareness, self-esteem, self-acceptance, and emotional/physical well-being.
Treatment is grounded in Polyvagal and Attachment Theories. Treatment approaches can include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Parts Work Therapy, Somatic Psychotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (tapping), Neuro-Nutrient Therapy (the use of amino acids, vitamins, and diet changes), and/or Brainspotting.
Some topics that may be covered include inner child work/reparenting, ego work, consciousness/mindfulness, the subconscious mind, boundaries, somatic interventions, autonomic nervous system, attachment, narratives, habit self versus authentic self, self-regulation skills, co-regulation skills.
