My doctoral training included dual emphases in LGBTQ + Psychology and Diversity & Community Mental Health.
Los Angeles is not an easy city, and these are not easy times. I invite individuals who are navigating identity, relationships, health, and trauma to my practice. I specialize in working within a gender affirming and trauma-informed framework, cultivating our strengths in order to build a life that feels sustainable and true to who we are. I especially welcome those who are new to psychotherapy and am a firm believer in demystifying the process. I approach my practice with warmth, cultural humility, an active and collaborative stance, and authenticity.

I am involved in and specialize in LGBTQIA + issues, couple(s)/relationship(s), poly, consensually non-monogamous, trauma, people and partners in the entertainment industry, existential life concerns, and more.
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 provide therapy for couples, marriages, LGBTQ + multi-partner relationships, individuals, in-person EMDR, trauma, and people/partners in the entertainment industry. I am trained in problem gambling and Thanatology/Death/Dying as well.

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!

Many of the people who consult with me identify as artists, writers, filmmakers, educators, activists, sex workers, queer , transgender , nonbinary, polyamorous/non-monogamous, or are living in resistance to social norms in one way or another. Problems can seem to take over our lives when we choose live near the edges of what's deemed "acceptable," "respectable," or even "healthy."

When working with LGBTQ clients I recognize the importance of using a sex positive and non-shaming approach.
I am currently seeing clients in New York, California and Florida State. I believe Psychotherapy is a collaborative venture that can help people lead a fulfilling life and maintain healthy relationships. In our work together my intention is to create a judgement-free space where I can understand your personal experience and nurture and support you in your journey towards authenticity and change. If you suffer with states of depression, anxiety, or loneliness, or you feel generally dissatisfied with aspects of your life, through our work together we can explore skills and tools that move you toward growth.

You’re LGBTQ + and have your shit together (for the most part), but you want more. You're tired of feeling stuck and are over just day-dreaming about how things could be better without any actual progress. You value therapy as an essential part of your regular self-care (same here - love my therapist) and are here for the built-in support and accountability. You’re ready to push past fear and take action because you know you have the power to create positive change, and I can help you get there. Because as a proud gay person and certified LGBTQ + therapist, I know that our community has limitless potential to live our best lives!

I have eight years of experience running therapy groups, ranging in topics from addiction to LGBT issues.
I believe in an approach to psychotherapy that is empathetic, collaborative and tailored to an individual's unique needs, where you feel understood from the first meeting. My approach recognizes the importance of the relationship between us, where therapy is an opportunity to make changes in our relationships by working within one in a therapeutic environment where you feel respected and supported. Life can be painful and challenging; my goal is to provide a space that feels safe and non-judgmental in order to experiment with new ways of thinking, gain insight, and have a happier, healthier, and fuller life.
