Natasha Nesic, MA,

Natasha Nesic View Specialties

Originally from Belgrade, Serbia, Natasha has lived in Miami for the past ten years. Her passion for both art and science influenced her decision to enter the field of psychology and art therapy. In 2016, she received her MA at world-renowned Graduate Mental Health and Art Therapy Program at Lesley University, Cambridge.
Natasha’s beliefs are grounded in an integrated approach to healing which merges neuro-scientific evidence-based practice, CBT, mindfulness, art therapy, existential, eclectic and humanistic approach to treatment.
Creative and healing energies are the same; they have the power to transform. For many clients, it is easier to relate to the therapist through the art object, which provides a focus for discussion and analysis. The therapist and client then work together in trying to understand client's personal process and the product of the session.

Art Therapy can be a compelling process, which may enable long buried feelings to come to the surface and be acknowledged. It is the capacity of art to be a bridge between the inner world and outer reality.

In the past few years, Natasha has worked with adolescents, families, and children through few non for profit organizations, as well as individual clients:
