Nat Vikitsreth (she/her) is a dot connector, norm agitator, and lover of liberation who supports social justice curious families in their efforts to practice social justice in their parenting while re-parenting their inner child. Nat works as a decolonized, somatic, and licensed clinical psychotherapist, transgender rights community organizer, child development specialist, and host of the Come Back to Care Podcast. She founded Come Back to Care to collaborate with parents who want to transform from autopilot to decolonized, embodied, and intergenerational parenting. She believes that when parents heal their inner child and internalized oppression wounds in a community, they put fragmented pieces of themselves together to show up to both parenting and community organizing with their whole selves. Then, parents can dismantle systemic oppression and rebuild a culture that's rooted in liberation for their future generations.

Nat is a graduate of and faculty instructor with the Erikson Institute’s Social Work and Child Development Program. She also holds another master’s degree in Infancy & Early Childhood Special Education from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Nat had the honor of speaking about decolonized mental health at the 18th World Association for Infant Mental Health in Dublin, Ireland, and was invited to be a faculty member at the Zero to Three LEARN Institute 2023.
