Get to Know Me


Hi! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Natalie Kember (she/her) a licensed therapist and social worker based in Michigan. I work with those who are searching for freedom from anxious cycles and traumatic situations. Those who spend everyday spinning their wheels, feeling overwhelmed and hopeless about the future. They might hear of others who have found freedom from the constant worry and wonder if that will ever be possible for themselves.

I will walk with you through the process of healing and teach you ways to be more in tune to your body and emotions. Our bodies and emotions are always trying to tell us things if we can learn to listen to them. I will also teach you skills to address anxious symptoms you may be experiencing so you can begin to live each day with less of a cloud hanging over your head. 

Sometimes it is helpful to know about the educational background of someone you will work with in therapy. I have a master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Michigan and have been working in the field for a decade. I have worked in a variety of settings, which have helped me to expand my perspective on the healing process. I have worked in substance abuse treatment, school social work, home-based mental health counseling for teen clients, emergency room mental health care, and several years in private practice setting seeing teen and adult clients. Throughout my education and work experience I have also received training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Suicide Intervention, Attachment Theory, and multiple Trauma trainings including cognitive and psycho-somatic interventions. 

In my time away from the office I enjoy spend time with my family, enjoying Michigan’s beautiful beaches or reading a good book.

My Areas of focus:

  • Spiritual Abuse 

  • Religious Trauma

  • Anxiety Disorders

  • Panic attacks

  • Boundary setting in relationships
