We have a relationship to everything in our lives... other people, our careers, our lifestyle choices, even our own sense of purpose... Yet we cannot expect to have a fulfilling experience here without solidifying a healthy relationship to our own selves-- truly knowing who we are and what we need to do to maximize our potential to be healthy, free, and self-actualized. Take the steps to grow into a healthier, more grounded, and self-attuned version of yourself, today.

We are not here to hurt.

I am on a mission to provide quality care for the whole person– mind, body, and spirit.

Hi, I’m Natalie Foster, and welcome to True Self Institute! I am so glad you found me.

I want to tell you a little bit about who I am and why I do what I do.


In 2012, I went through an intensely dark time in my life. Over the course of three weeks I contracted Lyme Disease, went through an intense spiritual emergency, and broke off a six year relationship. During this time I thought I truly lost myself. Due to a profound spiritual healing, I discovered that we are so much more than we think we are. We can learn to heal our lives, our hearts, and our minds. This can impact our spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical selves. All of our parts are worthy of loving attention, and all of our parts can heal!

If you landed on this page, you’re probably looking to heal, change, or grow in some way. You’re feeling the call or wondering if you should finally receive the support you need. Whatever you have been through or have been doing, it just isn’t working and you’re needing to seek other solutions. Good! Again, I am so happy you are here… you deserve to heal and experience more peace, ease, and joy in your life, health, and relationships. And you don’t have to do it alone… actually we humans naturally do much better with supportive connections! We’re not meant to do it alone.

Despite all apparent circumstances, this could actually be a time of great transformation for you. Psst… here’s a life secret (or not so much!).. Pain will do that to us. My greatest experience of transformation was also my most difficult, intensely painful one. I wouldn’t trade it for the world, for now I can see that darkness is truly where the light enters. It has become my strength, and it is my life’s work and passion to help others access theirs.

By letting go of your old stories and beliefs, and harnessing the power of clarity about what you want, forgiveness, and heart-centered healing, you can create real, lasting, positive change.

We are here to expand ourselves and our limited perspectives— to be open to new beliefs and ideas about who we are and what we are capable of. When we learn how to integrate through forgiveness, seeing things differently, practicing acceptance and understanding of our emotions, and letting go, we can begin to heal our lives and relationships, and begin to wake up to the reality of our Truest Self.

I help people do this using two similar, yet definitively different methods, based on where you are at now, and what you are needing. Those two methods are:

Art Therapy,


Intuitive Mentoring.

Both methods are a commitment to growth through the vehicle of our relationship together. Both are about YOU– an opportunity to help you grow, into a more healthy, peaceful, clear, and constructive version of yourself. I may incorporate many different healing modalities in both paths, if you so choose. I am trained in Reiki and also have extensive experience with mindfulness, meditation, and other forms of advanced energy psychology to help you heal and better understand yourself holistically.

As your therapist or mentor, I hope to help you experience more peace, ease, purpose, inspiration, relief, and joy…  and I hope to do so soon! Call me, and let’s talk about whether mentoring or therapy is a better fit for your current needs. There is no reason why you cannot begin to take steps toward your healthier future today. Even if we decide not to work together, I can leave you with one inspired action-step during our free, 30-minute discovery call. If we decide we are a good fit, then congratulations— you are on your way to creating real change! Either way, I am happy to help, so let’s connect about what you are needing.
