My primary experience is working in community-based public mental health with adolescents and families in individual, family, and group settings, and young adults in individual settings and group settings. I am truly passionate about working with individuals and couples in need of understanding others’ feelings, their own feelings, and how to properly express them in dealing with a variety of stressors.
You need to feel heard and understood! Come. The REAL you. Let's sit together and examine the things that occupy your mind, your time. You have decisions to make. You are navigating a rough patch or a transition. You need to improve your relationships, or just remove the barriers that block your potential. I can't wait to sit along side you as we work within YOUR strengths to manage stress and uncover your best self! In the words of Sheree Bliss Tilsley, …”I will walk with you in the darkness as you remember your light.”
Relationships are hard! Perhaps you are here looking for help on how to deepen connection and intimacy? Or maybe you need to make on a hard decision, (e.g., readiness for children, moving, or maybe separating)? Or perhaps you are struggling with how to resolve resentment, dissolve a marriage and say goodbye? My therapeutic approach can help you grow personally by building the skills that allow you to feel safe communicating your needs, without becoming reactive/defensive or avoidant. Relationship therapy can result in feeling more seen, enjoying deeper satisfying sex, finding true partnership, or simply being able to let go.
You deserve a safe environment where you feel free to express yourself and seek to understand what makes you, you. I am excited about the power of the therapeutic process, and believe that working together we may achieve the change you seek.
I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist based in Los Angeles. I offer online therapy sessions through a secured platform to residents who reside in California. My approach to therapy starts with the psychologist/client relationship. My goal is to help people feel better, change unhelpful patterns or behaviors, and teach new methods people can use to approach complex situations to maximize positive results.

My name is Taylor, and my pronouns are he/him. I work from an attachment base and work relationally to clarify, reflect upon, and understand life. There is healing through relating and we will explore your emotions, your thoughts, motivations, and expectations of yourself and others. At time we will focus on emotions, and on the specifics and patterns in your life, to make something come alive now.

I am trained in problem gambling and Thanatology/Death/Dying as well.
If you are searching for a therapist right now it may be because the world around is changing so much and you're losing your sense of control, or maybe you can't stop worrying about your finances or health and perhaps you're really worried about returning back to the office. I've been a licensed therapist since 2007 and worked in the field since that time and have supported many people during that time. I provide online counseling but you need to be physically in California for us to work together.
I have a core belief in the power of relationships to heal and transform. My work focuses on relationship patterns and how to identify and change habits that prevent closeness and intimacy. I also work with people to identify how their feelings affect their thoughts and behaviors and how to find peace, calm and most importantly, balance in their lives and relationships. I am interactive, supportive and real with my clients in an effort to help them work toward their own goals and take charge of their own lives.
I strongly believe that empathy, compassion and secure relationships with yourself and others are the key to fostering a life of honesty, happiness and resilience. I believe that having support and insight when going through challenging moments can make all the difference in navigating life. If this is your goal in seeking out therapy or even if its just to nurture growth and gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your behaviors, I can assist you in doing so. I am passionate about helping others heal emotional pain, overcome personal challenges and assist them in improving relationships in their daily lives.

As a cis-gay man, I’ve spent the better part of my adult life unlearning the harmful messages our world tells us about what is means to be LGBTQIA+ - that we’re somehow broken or unworthy. You are not broken. You are not unworthy. You are fabulous and vibrant and deserving of all the gifts this world has to offer. I became a therapist to share what I’ve learned and to bring healing not just to queer folks, but to anyone who knows what it feels like to be left out. When we work together, you can expect a safe, affirming, and sometimes silly space where we collaborate to find real solutions you can implement right away!
The life that we live these days is drastically impacted by the ongoing pandemic and capitalistic mindset, which results in stress and inability to manage our emotional needs. With the stress, trauma experiences including but not limited to childhood abuse, physical abuse, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, racial and social traumas takes toll on our bodies. This often shows up as fatigue, sadness, anxiety, overthinking, thoughts of self-harm and disables us from our lives. In such times we all can use a trauma informed and nonjudgmental external support to help us heal from root causes of these symptoms.
Are you overwhelmed? Irritable? Anxious? Are you having difficulty sleeping, tired of being tired, or stuck in a rut? I can help you establish some clear and attainable goals related to improving how you cope and your relationships. I will work collaboratively with you to help you regain control over your life and teach you how to regulate your emotions. Most of us have been affected by traumas or our childhood in one way or another, and I am very experienced in helping clients to uncover this and how to move forward adaptively.
My work includes helping survivors of interpersonal partner abuse and providing perinatal mental health counseling. I have found that much of my passion rests in the treatment of helping people discover and honor their truth – integrating their authentic selves in various areas of their life. It can be challenging to navigate, whether it be life transitions, challenging relationship issues, trauma, acclimating to a new community, or seeking help to strengthen who you are as an individual.
I am a Bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 8 years of experience working in the mental health field. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with multiple populations from children, adolescents, adults, older adults and families in different settings who come from different social-economical backgrounds. I tend to implement a humanistic, strength-based and client-centered approach. I am culturally sensitive, down to earth, and committed to my clients personal development/growth.
Healing is a delicate and powerful process of transformation that involves the emergence of an authentic autonomous self in the presence of an empathic other. Our work together will focus on the areas of your life that are inhibiting the power of your full potential. We all need our pain witnessed in an effort to move beyond where we feel stuck. Through compassion, active listening, challenging explorations and a space where vulnerability can be safe, I support my clients growth in an encouraging and straightforward approach.
Through my experience, I have worked in various treatment settings including Intensive Outpatient/Partial Hospitalization, Residential, Schools, Community Mental Health and Telehealth. If you are a potential client reading this, I’d like to say welcome! I am proud of you for taking a big step to acknowledge your mental health needs. I would be grateful to take this next step with you and work with you on the topics you see fit. As your therapist, I am here to provide a safe and supportive space to process and discuss difficult topics.
I have Master’s degrees in both Psychology and Counseling and specialize in working with adults and adolescents with feelings of depression, anxiety, feeling “stuck” or disconnected, and overall personal growth (including growth in self and relationships). Since every client is unique, I use an eclectic and holistic approach to help serve your individual needs. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to help increase self-awareness and acceptance to honor your strengths, feelings, and needs.
