Certified Trainer & Consultant

Natasha Tatartcheff-Quesnel, MSW, is a Certified Trainer and Consultant for Think:Kids. She provides training in Collaborative Problem Solving and site-specific consultations in English and French. Natasha completed her Master’s in Social Work fellowship at Think:Kids in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. She is committed to implementing the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach in Canada and the United States, and, to date, she has trained and provided implementation support to numerous sites, including police and fire departments, children’s aid societies, parent organizations, mental health agencies, and educational institutions. These coaching and training efforts aim to provide compassionate care and ultimately improve outcomes for children and youth with complex needs and their families.

Natasha has worked in child and adolescent services since 1991 in various settings in the public and private sectors. She has reviewed child and youth mental health systems internationally using the SOCPR and presented on the topic at numerous conferences with a specific focus on bridging the gap between System Care concepts by utilizing CPS to actualize those concepts at the level of practice. More recently, she has combined her knowledge of CPS with the world of sports.

Natasha received her BA and MSW from Carleton University in Ottawa.

About Me I’m Natasha (she/her/elle), I live in Ottawa with my husband and two sons. I grew up in a large family of French Canadian/European descent. Family is at the center of everything I do. I am fortunate to be close to them, especially my three siblings, who are incredible human beings and my best friends. My family loves the outdoors and camping. My boys have always been really athletic and pursued all kinds of sports; they get that from their dad. They both became competitive freestyle skiers, and my youngest is now on the Ontario team. Their love of sport has allowed me to give back by volunteering in the sports community. I am now the Vice-President of the Board and Official of our local ski club, Fortune Freestyle. While not a ski lover myself, it keeps me from hibernating all winter. My CPS training helps me understand why some athletes struggle at times. I can, in turn, help the community understand these athletes more compassionately. It’s been wonderful to take my work experience and diversify it to an entirely different environment.
