Natalie May

(LCSW, CMHIMP)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Oklahoma and have been in the Mental Health field since 2013.
I specialize in working with teens and adults combining multiple evidence based practices to provide support in areas such as anxiety, PTSD, phobias, chronic pain/illness, emotional regulation, anger management, family structure and support, substance abuse, trauma, life skills, coping skills, weight management, diet planning and co-dependency. I incorporate mindfulness into my practice which teaches impulse control, emotional regulation, confidence and self-awareness. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy challenges cognitive distortions while improving awareness of how thoughts and behaviors are connected. Exposure therapy teaches how to cope with anxiety, phobias and panic disorders. Integration of nutrition and other holistic approaches complete a well rounded mind and body.

I received my first degree in Dietetics with a focus in Culinary Arts from Oklahoma State University afterwards working at the VA Hospital specializing in diet planning. I received my second degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from Rogers State University where I focused on Human Development and Juvenile Delinquency. I received my Masters degree from the University of Oklahoma in Social Work focusing on Anxiety, Trauma and PTSD. I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the Teen Addiction Survey, Wrap Around Services, Neuroscience in the treatment of anxiety, worry and panic disorders and am working towards being a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medical Provider and a certification in EMDR.

Written by B.A. on Nov 11, 2020 after counseling with Natalie for 2 months

Natalie has helped me get back on my feet. She gave me the advise and support that I truly needed. I am able to progress at my own pace at the same time giving me the push when necessary.
