Natalie Wittstruck, MFTC

Hello, I’m Natalie!

Marital & Family Therapy Candidate

I have a natural tendency to find the good in people and like to work with my clients’ strengths and build upon them, which is a natural fit for reintegration and family therapy cases. I want to be a safe space for my clients to talk by offering nonjudgmental, nurturing support.

My story began in Southern California where I had the opportunity to be exposed to people from many walks of life and I welcome the opportunity to get to know people and meet them where they are in life.  I love taking in nature by going on walks with my family and dog, practicing yoga and meditation, or getting some of my own therapy as I work with my horses. As a young girl, I discovered my lifelong love for horses at a summer Girl Scout camp.  I thrived on the experience of riding and connecting with such majestic beauties. I enjoy laughing, whether it be from playing with my young son, watching my cats and dog chase each other, or playing games with friends and family.
With my Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, I worked full time in the Telecommunications Industry and felt like a puzzle piece that didn’t quite fit.  This was not my calling in life and I felt like I had more to offer humanity.

After enduring my own personal trauma, I was forced to stop, work through my struggles, and then make the choice to pursue my dream to become a therapist and begin again. I attended Regis University in Denver, CO, where I earned my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I have assisted in crisis intervention around self-harm and suicidal ideation while working at Highlands Behavioral Health System in Littleton, CO and continue to use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with clients. At Judi’s House in Denver, CO I helped families move through their grief and loss and found ways to connect them to a new norm.
Healing through a trauma, defeating hopelessness, decreasing challenges in families or being a partner to help a client with internal struggle that has been tough to even name are reasons why I am therapist.
