It is my passion to be able to help others through the challenges of life. It is always a priority to create a safe and trusting relationship with each client where they feel there is a shared ownership in their treatment outcomes. I provide effective, collaborative and holistic therapy that results in transformation, growth and healing. My primary treatment modality is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) but I integrate various therapeutic approaches to meet my client's individual needs.

Going to therapy is a challenging decision. I get it, vulnerability sucks. However, if you’ve come to the point in your life where you feel like you’re spinning your wheels and can’t quite get on the right track then therapy could be what you need. As a therapist, I am direct yet supportive and empathetic. I strive to take a collaborative and compassionate approach with my clients.

Life can feel overwhelming at times and it can also hold meaning. Although both can be true, making sense of it all while maintaining a secure connection with others is not an easy balance. Genuine and authentic relationships offer the unconditional support that is essential in building the foundation we need to explore who we are, what we value, and how it all impacts the lives of the ones we love.

Life can feel hard, you feel stuck, no matter what you do. Maybe your child is having a lot of big emotions, taking over. Having a difficult time expressing them to get needs met. Getting out the door to school or activities just does not seem to go as planned. Fears and worries are taking over, and your sweet child just isn't themselves. You want your motto to be "A happy, healthy family" and yet it feels like it just doesn't quite get there. Thoughts of "How do I help this little person, be the best them and our family be the best us?" Sweet parents/caregivers, you and your little one(s) are amazing and I am so glad you found me!

Hi, my name is Taylor! I feel that the most important part of therapy is the relationship I build with each individual I work with. My goal is to create a space where we can both allow authentic parts of ourselves to come through. I use a variety of techniques in order to best meet each individual where they are and explore what may work best for them. The approach I take integrates past and current experiences to help us explore and understand self. Therapy can be scary and nerve-wracking, and I feel honored I get to be a part of that journey.
