Natasha, the founder of Anchoridge Counselling Services, is a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario with an MS in counselling from Canisius College in New York State. After completing this, Natasha worked with at-risk youth in Miami; she then went onto specialize in working with teens and their families struggling with difficult life circumstances with a particular focus on teens with gender identity concerns or gender dysphoria.

Prior to that, while earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and International Studies at the University of Waterloo.
