Many people seek a session with Natalie because they feel stuck and are looking to create a significant change in their life, or because they want a deeper understanding and healing of a disease or condition, or they are looking for spiritual renewal and a vision forward. She is an empath or clairsentient, and by connecting with the one mind, also experiences claircognizance, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and divination when facilitating a session. She uses these natural abilities and the science of mind-body medicine to reveal and identify what the individual needs in order to align with their truest self, guiding them toward self-mastery and spiritual fulfillment.
