Nat Vikitsreth (she/her) is a dot connector, norm agitator, and community organizer. She works as a decolonized and clinical psychotherapist, lecturer, podcast host, trans-disciplinary artist, and social justice practitioner. She is the founder of Come Back to Care, a liberation technology where family building is deeply decolonized and intentionally intergenerational.

She does that with wholehearted compassion, a whole lot of curiosity, and a wholesome liberation practice.
In 2021, Nat received the Infant Early Childhood Mental Health Emerging Leadership Award from Zero to Three for her work at Come Back to Care, Inc. Nat graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a master's degree in infant and early childhood special education and from Erikson with a master's degree in social work. She also completed her postgraduate training in infant mental health from the University of Massachusetts Napa program.
