Natalie is a Registered Psychotherapist specializing in Emotional and Mental Wellness and DEIB Training, certified by the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP) and serving as the President of the Board of the Gestalt Institute of Toronto.

We also delve into the stories we tell ourselves about professional situations. How do we interpret and internalize events like not receiving a callback or missing out on a sale? Natalie helps us understand the personal meanings we attach to these experiences and how to embody more empowering narratives.

Tune in for an insightful conversation on maintaining mental wellness and fostering a positive mindset in your professional life.


We will be discussing the following:

1. Strategies to practice positive mental health techniques at work to cope with stress, burnout, anxiety and whatever else might be challenging us professionally.

2. The meaning we give to stories we tell ourselves when situations occur professionally and how do we embody them? For example, if someone doesn’t call you back or you don’t land that sale what do you internalize about it on a personalized level? How do you embody that meaning?
