Helping people is what I’m passionate about.

Being a therapist is a privilege. My intention is to hold space for people to become healthier, more empowered and experience their lives flourishing. The most rewarding thing about being a therapist is giving hope when people feel hopeless.

I have the honor of creating a safe space to help my clients heal, develop resiliency, embrace a growth mindset and better understand how they want to show up for themselves in the world.

I have a natural ability to:

  • Reflect people’s thoughts back to them
  • Be flexible on the path of discovering what’s going on
  • Accept people for who they are and in their current life circumstances
  • Help clients heal their past and manage the present

I strive to be a good listener who can help you feel heard, seen and known.

Our Sessions Are Focused On You

Sessions will provide you with the space to feel what you need to feel. In feeling safe and comfortable, you’ll be able to gain clarity and move through your current season.

It’s important to me to provide a non-judgemental space where you can be yourself. I’m a collaborative therapist and want to work with you as you’re the expert on your story. There isn’t a “one size fits all” approach to therapy. Our sessions will fit your specific needs and concerns.

About Dr. Taylor

My Journey To Becoming A Therapist

I’m no different from the clients I see. Like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been been through both wonderful and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I can help.

When I experienced my own significant loss, I had a difficult time finding a therapist that could hold the kind of space I needed to work toward healing. So, I went back to school to learn how to be a grief therapist and provide a unique space for my clients to process their loss, learn new coping strategies, grow through their trauma and move into a healthier version of themselves.

My life experiences are what lead me to become the therapist I am today.

I started practicing counseling in 2012 and have worked in a variety of settings since. I became a licensed mental health counselor in 2016 and a licensed psychologist in 2021.

My hope is that therapy will be a safe place to process life and better understand who you are. I work most frequently with women as well as teenagers, young adults and adults. If you are seeking support around challenges with fertility, postpartum, pregnancy and adjustments to parenthood, I’d be honored to walk with you through this season and the myriad of feelings that come with it. If you are in seasons of transition and working to better understand who you want to be, therapy is a safe place to get tools to help you own your voice and how you want to show up in the world. It’s okay to ask for help and prioritize yourself.

I have been trained in EMDR, an evidenced-based treatment for trauma. I have training in Lifespan Integration (LI) and utilize ACT and CBT to build coping skills and stress tolerance. Art and talk therapy are integrated as well. My intention is to hold space and help each client feel seen, heard and known as everyone has their own story to tell.

One of my specialty trainings is grief and loss. I am passionate about helping create meaning and understanding around difficult circumstances and adjusting to a new normal. I integrate art, writing and mindfulness and other tools while working with you to find what you connect with most. I believe therapy is not a “one size fits all” approach.

Grief & Loss Therapy

When we experience the loss of a loved one, it can leave us reeling and unsure of how to cope with the myriad of feelings that come with grief. You are struggling with knowing how to adjust to your new normal and make sense of the hole left by your loved one who’s passed.

Grief Therapy can support you with processing your loss, finding a way to make meaning from your experience and adjust to your new normal.

Trauma Therapy

If you’re struggling with motivation, relationships, work/life balance, or other life challenges, it may be the result of a trauma response. Finding a safe space to process complicated and painful parts of your story is important in helping you move toward your best self. If you have experienced trauma, you may be comforted to know that effective treatments are available.

Therapy can be a safe space to process challenging parts of your story, gain insights to cope with and better understand yourself and work towards healing. Specific therapeutic approaches, such as EMDR, can be incredibly beneficial to finding peace, growing resilience and learning helpful tools to embrace your best life.

Pregnancy & Postpartum

One’s reproductive years can be filled with highs, lows and everything in between. Sometimes the emotional toll of these events can become overwhelming, especially when distressing thoughts and feelings develop or persist. You are not alone in this. Any child-bearing person can experience a variety of unexpected emotional and physical changes both during pregnancy and after the birth of a child. Sometimes if these reactions don’t go away, become disturbing, or interfere with your daily life, a more serious clinical condition may be present and you may need additional help or support.

If you are worried about mood or behavior changes during pregnancy, postpartum, or following a loss, therapy can help. I will work to support you in creating a plan to help build coping skills, reduce stress and other persistent symptoms, and hold space for you to move through this difficult season. Know that your symptoms are treatable and that you are worth feeling better. Reach out for help today.

How Therapy Works

Therapy consists of 50-minute, one-on-one sessions that help you work through your concerns. In addition to listening, I will ask questions and share what the science tells us about what’s going on for you, I play an active role. Here’s how it will work step-by-step:

1. First, I provide a safe, accepting space so that you will feel comfortable sharing your struggles with me.
2. Through hearing your story, I will start to get a picture of what your challenges are.
3. We will start with helping you with immediate concerns like managing difficult emotions and challenging life situations
4. We will also work to discover what your goals are in therapy and in life.
5. Keeping your unique goals in mind, we’ll figure out what’s needed to help you reach them
6. Over the course of our sessions, you will start making progress towards the life you desire.

Research shows that therapy can positively change your thinking, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors. It can help you let go of what’s holding you back.
