Specialties & expertise
Natalia Rosenbaum is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in downtown Boston and Gloucester, MA. She specializes in anxiety, depression, and relationship issues, as well as those seeking counseling in spiritual topics, such as mindfulness and meditation. She is a Kundalini Yoga instructor, and helps clients learn new mindfulness tools and establish a daily home meditation practice.
Natalia helps clients gain the most out of traditional “talk” therapy by combining it with yogic practices. These may include mantra, pranayama (formal breathing), and meditation, and can be done sitting in a chair, lying on the floor, or through moving and stretching. Yogic practices help clients feel grounded and centered in their own bodies, and offers them tremendous potential for a profound and productive therapeutic experience. Through experiencing the wisdom within the body, she helps clients more easily-and safely-access and discuss the multi-dimensional layers of their lives.
Natalia's integrative approach meets clients where they are and creates a highly personalized path to transformation. She also utilizes her training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and mindfulness practices. She is committed to creating a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment in which clients can begin unpacking some of the old beliefs they hold from painful past experiences.

Message to clients
"At times, life can present us with difficulties and challenges that can be overwhelming. During these times it can be a struggle to gain space from the problem because our mind can spin out of control. It is precisely at a time like this when we have an opportunity for healing. As a therapist, I act as a guide for clients to learn to heal themselves. Through Kundalini Yoga, IFS Therapy and other approaches, I focus on a collaborative process so that transformation can happen."
Treatment approachesCognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)In cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a therapist in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions.

Internal Family SystemsIFS is a type of therapy that views the mind as a combination of relatively discrete subpersonalities each with its own viewpoint and qualities that interact with one another. IFS aims to understand how these collections of subpersonalities are organized and promote harmony among them. (learn more)
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to prevent relapse in people who have recovered from unipolar depression, and more generally, helps treat mood disorders.
