About Me
Hello! My name is Natalia Tommasi. I was born and grew up in Volgograd, Russia. I
graduated magna cum laude as a psychologist from Volgograd State Pedagogical University.
Later on I moved to El Paso, TX where I completed my English and Spanish language
studies. I attended the Master’s Program in Clinical Psychology as a listener and graduated
with Honors from Master’s Program in Community Guidance and Counseling at the University
of Texas at El Paso.

Once I finished my studies, I relocated to Oregon, where I have been working as a Mental
Health Therapist at a leading non-profit mental health agency and as a Mental Health
Interviewer at the Center for Health Research in Kaiser Permanente. I am licensed as a  
Professional Counselor.

I am tri-lingual (Russian, Spanish, English), tri-cultural (Eastern-European, Latino and Anglo)
mental health therapist who overall understands and works with an extensive range of issues
and emotions. I have strong background in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical
Behavioral Therapy. I am passionate about helping people and consider myself very
fortunate to be able to offer my knowledge and experience to someone in need.

I strive for continuous professional development. Here are some of the trainings I have
attended:
Reconsidering Trauma: Treatment Advances, Relational Issues and Mindfulness in
Integrated Trauma Therapy
Intercultural Communications
Addiction Pharmacology
Latino Culture’s Perspective on Serious Mental Illness
Dealing with Substance Use in Mental Health Treatment
