Natalie is currently pursuing a Master’s in Music with a Specialization in Music Therapy from Colorado State University (CSU). Prior to moving to Colorado to enjoy the mountains and further their education, they worked in Philadelphia and Boston with individuals and communities experiencing trauma, poverty, homelessness, and substance misuse. At CSU they’ve gained experience working with individuals with Parkinson’s Disease, developmental disabilities, older adults with dementia, and mental health concerns. Some of Natalie’s clinical interests include strength-based, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, and neuroscience-informed practices. Natalie uses evidence-based practice tailored to each client to meet them where they’re at, building on strengths and addressing needs while hoping to provide engaging experiences that allow them to work on their goals.
Natalie enjoys kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking, snuggling their dog, travel, and van-life camping in their free time. They are so excited to be the first music therapy intern at the Child and Family Therapy Center of Denver, getting to learn alongside the team and share their love of music!
