Meet Natalia

Natalia AmariLMSW is fiercely driven to help others face and rise up from the hard knocks of life. Over the past six years, she has helped survivors overcome trauma, both as an advocate and as a psychotherapist. She also spent eight years working in student services on college campuses. Helping college students launch into adulthood is something she is especially passionate about. In these roles, Natalia honed her craft for helping others navigate trauma, loss, transitions and family struggles.

Through warmth, patience, authenticity and understanding Natalia facilitates a safe therapeutic space. Natalia has cultivated a style that includes trauma-informed, relational, creative and intersectional feminist approaches. This allows clients to identify their own unique strengths, resources, and paths to healing. In this process, clients find their sense of self, reclaim their voices and build self-confidence. This, then, becomes the foundation for clients to create the lives they wish to lead.

Natalia's education includes a Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Texas at Austin. Later, she completed a Master of Social Work at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. After taking a little detour in Portland, OR, she is thrilled to be back in her hometown of Austin, TX. Natalia is a Licensed Master Social Worker under the supervision of Mary B. Mattis, LCSW, LCDC.
