About

“Knowledge is only rumor until it lives in the muscle.” This proverb from the Asaro tribe of Papua New Guinea is the foundation of how we bring what we learn into a lived experience and create lasting change. We can read books, watch videos, and make resolutions but until we truly move forward in a different way, we run the risk of getting stuck in old patterns. My goal is to help uncover the root causes that lead to the use of substances or behaviors that become detrimental to the spirit and values in the individual. Reclaiming these values and rebuilding self-esteem is possible and begins with a decision to seek help.
As a certified addictions counselor, I have worked in the field of substance use for several years in residential and outpatient levels of care. I have worked with adolescents, adults, couples, and families to educate them on why these patterns begin and how to develop healthier behaviors.
My foundational approach comes from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a focus on mindfulness-based CBT. I am in training for CSAT currently as well as PESI training in trauma therapy. My graduate studies focused on understanding trauma and its impact on the brain.

Ann D Taliaferro's Groups

Understanding the Trauma Brain workshop

A women's group on understanding the brain’s role in addiction, anxiety, and depression and how to rewire your thought patterns. Has your brain been patterned for worry and rumination, anxiety, and fear? Would you like to understand why neuroplasticity can rewire and help reclaim a sense of empowerment and internal peace of mind instead of resorting to coping mechanisms that are ineffective and sometimes dangerous? Day and Time of Jabuary session TBD, please call if you are interested.
