Natalie Lang, LICSW
Natalie Lang, LICSW has been a practicing social worker for the past 16 years. She is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has been treating children, adolescents, adults and families throughout that time. Natalie has treated clients in outpatient clinics, residential treatment centers, home settings, as well as in therapeutic and public school settings. In seeing a significant rise in anxiety and stress-related concerns in these settings, Natalie has sought out training in yoga and mindfulness to complement her practice. She has found that mindfulness and yoga lend themselves beautifully to helping clients learn effective skills to not only reduce anxiety and stress but to increase their abilities to focus, remain centered and process emotional stimuli. Natalie’s style is to provide non-judgemental warmth, compassion, and support to help clients manage their emotions and seek positive outcomes. She also focuses on practical day to day strategies to increase self-efficacy and resilience. Natalie utilizes practices originating from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) to inform her practice. She seeks to help her clients achieve not only a greater sense of calm but also compassion to ease anxiety and mood dysregulation and to increase optimism. Natalie also has experience working with clients who struggle with substance abuse.
