My interest in Psychology and helping others developed at Fordham University in New York City. The need for highly trained people to work in the areas of Anxiety, ADHD, and PTSD was clear! Next level skills were obtained with a Masters in Developmental Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Long Island University.
Since graduating in 1996, I have been in private practice working with children, adolescents, college students, and adults with ADHD, PTSD, and Anxiety using a comprehensive model that can include CBT, EMDR, and Mindful Tools & Strategies applied in an Individual or Group or combined format. Over 24 years, I have helped clients adaptively manage different symptoms effectively. In addition, I have assisted in the development of self regulation and this has helped support client's goals. Transitional issues for college, graduate, law, and medical students as well as Residents are addressed using Positive Psychology, Mindfulness and Coaching techniques.
To contribute to Psychology, I mentor at Fordham University, present my ADHD program nationally and internationally, and have been an Ambassador for The National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology in 2019. I am a certified EMDR therapist, approved EMDR Consultant, and an approved Continuing Education Provider for EMDRIA. I serve as consultant to other EMDR Practitioners who would like to become certified in EMDR and for consultations for work with children, adolescents, and individuals with Anxiety or ADHD. I am a member of the APA, the National Register of Health Services Psychologists, NYSPA, EMDRIA, SCPA, NCPA, CHADD, and the Trauma Response Network.
What do clients from on the web have to say about working with Dr. Natalucci?
As seen on vitals.com:
“After 6 months of fears and anxiety to new situations my child’s pediatrician recommended a visit to Dr. Natalucci. After meeting with her, our child looked forward to each Saturday with a lot of enthusiasm. It was a weekly group meeting where she was asked to use a sandbox with various objects/toys of her choice to start a story. She simply loved this. After months we noticed significant changes in our child. Her doctor/dentist visits no longer included the anxiety and crying episodes they previously did. At school she begin taking challenges such as oral presentations and apointing herself as the leader of her gifted and talented group activities. Her confidence and assertiveness were getting stronger and her decision to participate in musicals and piano recitals were positive.”

“I have had a hard time finding a psychologist that not only took my insurance but that I also felt comfortable with and finally found one with Dr. Natalucci. I have been seeing her for about 4 month and have noticed huge changes in myself and am extremely happy with her!”
