WHY DO THERAPY ONLINE?

  • Convenient, no travel time
  • Fits into a busy schedule
  • Consistent therapy even when traveling
  • Can be done from home, office, car or other private space.
  • Secure, encrypted, confidential
  • HIPAA and GDPR-compliant Business Associate Agreements with providers to maintain your privacy.
  • HOW DO WE DEAL WITH IT?

    We will do the work in a way that suits you.  I customize my approach to each client. Depending on what we are working on, I will use High Performance Rehearsal Techniques, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction techniques, Strengths-Based, Solution Focused methods, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Psychosynthesis, Trauma Reprocessing / Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

    HOW LONG WILL WE WORK TOGETHER?

    The length of time we spend in therapy / counseling is up to you. Most people begin to feel better in 4 to 10 weeks. If you are new to therapy / counseling, I like to define a chunk of work we want to complete, plan 12 sessions to get it done, re-evaluate as we go, and at the 10-week mark, start to wrap up or decide if there is more work you would like to do with me. For deeply entrenched issues it will take longer.

    Therapy Outcomes

    I CAN HELP

    I have a very good success rate, especially with stress, panic, anxiety, and trauma–and the relationship problems and occasional depression that comes with anxiety spectrum concerns or trauma.

    Over the years, I have developed skills and methods that really work.  I have helped hundreds of people one to one.  My high success rate, in part, is due to the fact that I work well with people who have stress, anxiety, panic and trauma issues.  The success is also due to the fact that people with stress, anxiety, panic and trauma tend to have a number of personal strengths.  You may not think you are smart and you may not be aware of your strengths yet.  That’s ok.  I just want you to know that these issues tend to be more amenable to change than other issues.

  • WHY ONLINE THERAPY / ONLINE COUNSELING

    What better way to be mobile and still connect regularly with your therapist? All you need is a device and a good internet connection. We both can travel!

    BECAUSE… TRAVEL

    In 2018, I went on an adventure to Mexico.  I loved the people, the weather, the language and the culture… Digital Nomads Playa del Carmen Facebook group, Sonia Jaeger’s Location Independent Therapists and Dr. Amber Lyda’s Online Therapists Group opened up windows on a new world. I discovered I could offer online therapy and travel!

    In the last 12 months, I’ve been to Mexico, Spain, France, Italy, Slovakia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, 

    The travel bug bit me young.  My family started camping every summer when I turned 3.  As a teen in Quebec I felt like I had discovered a parallel dimension full of people conducting lives in French!

    Then I went to high school for two years in Manchester, England. The reality was hard, but I still yearned for the expat life.  When I was 19, I learned Spanish and lived in Mexico. When I was 30 I learned Italian and lived in Perugia, Italy.  In between those adventures, I’ve lived in Massachusetts, Maine, New Mexico, California, and Colorado.

    HOW DO YOU RELAX?

    Guided meditation, breathing, reading, being alone, being in nature, journaling, admiring art, being creative helps me. What about you?

    WHAT DO YOU ENJOY?

    I love to hike and bike and travel. And you?
    Here are some of the outdoor accomplishments I’m proud of:
    Bike touring / camping trip in Europe
    John Muir Trail, 211 miles+ Yosemite-Mt Whitney-Whitney Portal
    Colorado Trail, 200+ miles Waterton Canyon-Segment 12+

    Colorado’s 14ers: hiked 28 of 54 peaks>14,000 ft  (4267 m)

    WHAT ENERGIZES YOU?

    How do you refill the well? How do you recharge your batteries? Reading, being alone, spending time with friends and family, good food, being in nature, journaling, admiring art, travel, good conversation, mindfulness, meditation, creative expression, recharge my energy. What gives you energy?

    STRESS, ANXIETY, WORRY, PANIC

    How do you manage stress? How do you get through a panic attack? I can help you learn to stop worrying and relax. I can help you eliminate panic attacks. I can teach you skills that reduce anxiety. I can help you understand how you work and how to help yourself feel better. So yes, I can help you feel better. The happiness follows.

    20-MINUTE CONSULT

    If I sound like a therapist / counselor you would like to work with, let’s set up a 20 minute consultation. In the consult, we’ll talk about what is going on with you, what changes you hope to make, and explore whether we’re a good fit.  If we are, we’ll deal with your concerns, together!

    Please email me at natwalterfisk@protonmail.com to set up a free, 20 minute consult.

    Coping skills to the rescue: Compartmentalizing decreases stress, anxiety, trauma

    I teach you ways to reduce anxiety, stress, or symptoms of trauma or PTSD before we start dealing directly with traumatic experiences using Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). We spend a significant amount of time laying a foundation of strength and resilience before we start to work through the trauma. I do this by helping …
