The wildness of our lives - the most distant inner-landscape and truest desire, the greatest passion and deepest trouble - are guides. Life, if we are truly to live from soul, is not always tame. However, it is the very wildness that both calls and guides us home. If we let it be so, life’s wildness might become that which illuminates the path.

The Immersion was created for those hearing the knock at the door. This path takes patience, a willingness to rest with complexity and become intimate with well-worn grooves, and to build relationship with one’s self.

 
 

During our time together, we will open the door to facets of the wild psyche that may have settled into hidden, quiet, or even lost places. We will explore certain aspects that might be living in protective, strategic and stagnating ways, while simultaneously ushering forth and strengthening facets of wholeness (the wise, nurturing, steady, instinctual, transformative, and even playful aspects of self) that become places of power, support and inner-guidance.

This journey is never offered to pathologize or fix one’s experience, and often times clients will continue working with therapists - as this is not traditional therapy. This space is created for you to come to more fully know and be with Self.  The journey here holds the power of not only healing, but also re-awakening the inherent wholeness resting within.

 
I found Natalie at just the right point in my personal journey of growth and healing. Her soulful support and compassion is a perfect compliment to her skillfulness in sharing knowledge and wisdom. This combination makes her a safe, effective ally in any journey. I have such trust in her and her service to others and such gratitude for her impact in my life. Thank you friend!

Who is the Immersion for?

Over the years, I have worked with folks from many walks of life. Those in eating disorder recovery. Those who desire more intimacy and breadth than what is available in traditional therapy. Those who feel the cries of soul and are ready to explore vast depths of the psyche. Those who are ready to step into healing, learning, and growth.

And those who simply sense the waves of change calling them forth, and have chosen this path as a guide.

 

If you sense there is a greater point to healing other than simply “Fixing” something. if you are feeling called forth, yet have no clue where the cries of this call are born. if you simply sense there is another way…
