Natalie Sanders


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Virginia and have 19 years of experience working with adults who struggle with mental illness. It has always been my desire to help others, as I enjoy supporting and guiding individuals on this journey called life. In addition to using various therapeutic techniques, I am also a Christian, who believes in encouraging and supporting others, through the teachings of Christ. Sharing the love of Christ and helping others to learn what He says about us, I have learned, has been beneficial regarding learning and accepting the positive qualities we all possess. I am very supportive to those who wish to utilize their faith, if this is the path they would like to take.

Taking the first step to reach out for help is huge, and I commend anyone and everyone who has decided to make strides to better their lives. Please know that it is an honor for me to be able to assist you along your journey of life, and I look forward to working with you to get you to the next step of where you would like to be. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. Please know that I also provide live sessions, if this is something that you would like to do at any point, on our therapeutic journey together.

Natalie has been helping me navigate the empty nester season. This has been especially difficult for me as a single parent and as an adult adoptee with a history of grief and loss. Natalie has given me much encouragement as I have shared my feelings with her, and she has helped me reframe some of my thinking in a more positive direction. I feel safe being vulnerable with her without being judged. She has helped me better understand that while empty nesting can be painful, there are also many joys. Natalie has helped me focus more on my own journey and helped me see that God has plans for my life beyond parenting. I still have a ways to go, but I feel like I am much better equipped than I was when I first started counseling.

I literally recommended FaithfulCounseling to a friend today and if I could, I would send my friend specifically to my counselor, Natalie Sanders. She is so great!

Natalie completely listens and understands. She does not forget any detail that is communicated to her, and will draw on it later to bring me back in focus.

Natalie is a gem. She helped me to see myself, how the Father sees me and a woman of God. She made me feel special. She is wonderful.

I am so grateful for the ways that Natalie keeps pointing me back to the truth about God, about who He is, and about who He says I am! I am struggling to keep my eyes on Him instead of on the hurricane, and she keeps pointing me to Him when I feel like I can't keep my head above water!

Natalie is truly a God send. She has helped me enormously with her kindness and compassionate insights. She is quickly responsive and truly a “Faithful Counselor”. I highly recommend Natalie for anyone desiring real and practical Biblically based counseling. Four Stars!

Natalie is a wonderful, caring counselor who was always quick to respond to messages. Her kind, well thought-out communication with me helped me get from a point of desperation and despair to a place of hope in just a short period of time. Thank you, Natalie.
