Natalie Hogge, MA, LMHP

Natalie Hogge earned her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Expressive Arts Therapy from Goddard College. The experience of parenting a child with an Autism diagnosis helped Natalie discover the power of creative process, which informs her way of meeting people uniquely where they are. Natalie employs Expressive Arts modalities as forms of communication that empower. This opens up avenues to trauma narratives and embedded stories through fostering communication, thus bridging cultural, language, and other conflicting barriers to wellness. Natalie continues to seek modalities that serve diverse populations equitably through the empowering practices of Expressive Arts and Narrative work with a trauma-informed approach. She believes in people’s innate capacity to heal through fostering individuals’ unique healing mechanisms in a supportive community. Natalie maintains her own visual and Expressive Arts practice to enhance her work and maintain her play ethic in this ever-creative and rewarding realm of therapy.
