Natasha Laumei, LPC, LMHC
Preferred Name: Natasha
My decision to become a therapist was informed by many things, including my journey of navigating my own trauma and ongoing healing, time spent working with immigrant and refugee families as an AmeriCorps volunteer, and an early and ongoing love of exploring the ways in which we understand our human experience through the stories we tell. I believe that mental, emotional, and spiritual health and wellbeing are among the most fundamental needs of individuals and community, and that these lie in deep connection and relationship to the physical health and safety of our bodies and the world around us. In the rest of my life I enjoy spending time in nature, creating art, growing plants, loving other humans and animals, exploring my meditation and mindfulness practice, and challenging myself to live in a constant state of growth and curiosity. I strive to embody creativity, dedication, and passion in both my daily life and my work as a therapist.
Education & Experience
I completed a Masters in Community Counseling from Lewis & Clark Graduate School in 2013. I have worked in the mental health field since 2009, and have worked with adults, adolescents, children, and families in residential, correctional, and community mental health settings. I have provided crisis intervention, individual counseling, and group therapy to clients from a wide variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I work primarily from an integrated trauma-informed, narrative, anti-oppressive, feminist framework. I also include EMDR, creative and ecotherapies, interpersonal neurobiology, and mindfulness-based approaches in my work with clients.
