Hello. I am a licensed clinical social worker dual licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin with over 30 years of work experience in the medical and mental health fields. I strive to help clients develop healthy coping strategies to navigate life struggles. I have a direct but compassionate style, while providing a non-judgmental environment with a strength based and collaborative approach. I have experience helping clients through a wide range of mental health concerns including; depression, anxiety, PTSD, trauma, grief& loss, health anxiety and life transitions.
Hi there! My name is Taylor. I have years of experience working with people who have experienced trauma, substance use, and a variety of mental health conditions. I have a passion for working with teenagers, adolescents, and young adults. During our sessions together, I strive to create an environment where you will feel supported and can be your authentic self. I value a holistic approach to therapy and think it is important to nurture all aspects of an individual: mind, body, and spirit. My goal for each session is to empower you and work with you to create positive change.
Move from where you are now to where you want to be. Get unstuck. Gain insight into "why" questions, such as: "why do I do that?"; "why am I like this?"; "why do I feel this way?" Discover what you truly value and how to live a life aligned with your highest ideals. Therapy work can make all the difference.
I was in the military from 2002-2014. While serving, I discovered one of my passions, listening and helping others. My hope is to help individuals find value in their lives that will comfort their struggles and learn coping mechanisms to aid with this. I also feel it is important to say that family relationships are important to me. I have a strong belief that life can be messy, things can be overwhelming at times, but life can be wonderful!
Congratulations for trusting yourself enough to explore ways to make your life easier! This is what my work is all about-helping you make your life easier. We all deserve to feel fulfilled and happy in our lives. If you're not able to do this on your own right now, please call to see if I'm the right fit for you.
In my practice, I strive to provide a warm, safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment for self-discovery. Therapy is a way to identify the positive and negative patterns in your life, to discover your own strengths, learn new coping skills and feel empowered to overcome hardships.

We will work with you to get you in within one week. We will even try to offer you a same or next-day appointments.Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. Our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating.
Throughout our lifetimes, we experience the world--delightful and painful--through our senses. Stress and trauma become stuck in our minds and bodies. A tough protective skin forms that keeps out pain, but also blocks joy. By slowing down and involving our bodies in the work of therapy, the dynamic display of our emotions finds resonance and calming, the mind and body unwind, and insight naturally arises about ourselves, relationships, and experiences. By including body, mind, and spirit, we tend the whole person. By partnering with the natural world, we invite resources that comfort, guide, and inspire us.
When you are feeling stressed and overwhelmed it can be difficult to find the courage to seek therapeutic support. My hope is that through our sessions you will be able to find peace in the chaos of life. I believe our struggles teach us to center our attention around a part of us that needs to grow. I can help you create this change and manage the feelings that come with this rewarding work.
Thank you for taking the time to visit this page. I hope what you find here feels right for you.
Everyone has basic human needs such as being heard and understood, affirmed, included, loved, and safe. These are met through healthy relationships with the world around us and form the foundation of our personal health and well-being. In meeting our needs, our behavior is purposeful, and no one sets out to fail. Therapy is a process of discovery, or re-discovery, of how to be our best selves and achieve a more satisfying, fulfilling, and enriched life.
I specialize in working with individuals who have experience complex trauma. My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative and non-pathologizing. Clients often find me because of my experience as an Internal Family Systems Therapist (level 3) or Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. The models I use take us beyond traditional talk therapy and create space for you to notice what’s happening inside. By slowing things down and taking notice you can develop new ways of relating to yourself as well as others. Client’s often report an increase sense of self-compassion, calmness, clarity & confidence.
***2 Openings Available*** I believe relationships are the most potent development and protective context for development; as such I view relationship as the primary source of strength and healing. I help couples and families to improve communication and trust to buffer against depression, suicide, and many other stressors. Couple and families that want to feel closer to one another and address the behaviors, depression, suicidality keeping them apart should feel hope and support through our work--we will specifically target the causes and consequences of these issues.

"Tomorrow, you promise yourself, will be different, yet, tomorrow is too often a repetition of today." James T. Mccay. Research has repeatedly shown that the single largest factor impacting treatment outcomes is not a provider's treatment methodology or theoretical orientation, but rather the quality of a client's relationship with their individual provider. Consequently I work with each client to design a carefully researched yet highly customized program that fits their unique needs. I am able to form a realistic plan for improving their life situation that brings about improvement in their symptoms quickly.
Licensed Professional Counselor, BS, MSE, LSC, LPC
With over 14 years of experience as a Counselor, I have found the most effective way to do therapy is to help empower people to recognize the power and strength they have within themselves. There is hope and a way to get better. I will show you through psychoeducation, learning effective coping skills, and changing/interrupting your negative thought patterns. When you change the way you see yourself you can change your life in ways you never thought possible. Let me help you let go of the fear/negativity/anxiety or whatever is holding you back in your life.
I am a licensed professional clinical counselor in Minnesota and I am also licensed in Wisconsin. I provide a problem-solving and skill-equipping approach with my client’s health and wellness at the center of each session. Clients may come to my office with difficulties of depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, physical health struggles, becoming a new parent, or other life transition struggles. Every therapeutic relationship is unique and I approach therapy through a Humanistic lens while at times adding Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) interventions and mindfulness techniques.
I have worked in the mental health field since 2002. I have experience working on an inpatient mental health unit and in a community mental health setting, servicing both adolescents and adults. I specialize in working with individuals 8 and older who experience symptoms of trauma, depression, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. I also have experience in working with individuals who have physical and intellectual disabilities, as well as Autism spectrum disorders.
I come here believing this: the power of emotions is incredible. Emotions shape our identities, impact how we interact with others and can be the underlying source of ongoing and situational problems. I work with young adults and any individuals who are struggling with understanding who they are and where they fit into the world. This may include difficulties with depression, anxiety, interpersonal/family conflicts, adjustments towards change in life and stress. Recent times have brought a need for many of us to adjust our lives internally and externally to find balance, purpose, and fulfillment. This adjustment can happen here.
Most of us are seeking some kind of peace in our lives. At times our lives feel off track. We feel stuck, and hungry for things to be different. I will teach you skills and tools to make the needed changes to create the life you want. I give homework at the end of every session to help change the patterns in life that aren't working. These tools will assist you in reconnecting with your own wisdom, and in guiding you to your own answers. It’s possible to live a life of peace and joy. Since COVID many clients have discovered Telemedicine is a very convient way to engage in therapy without having to leave work or home.
The world is messy, complex, and beautiful. Navigating it can be both difficult and wonderful — sometimes in the same moment. With these inherent contradictions in life, is it any surprise that we sometimes get stuck? I work with couples, individuals, and families and help them work through difficult times by creating new paths. Wherever you are in your life, I value your lived experience. I will work to create a safe space where together we can build a collaborative environment for you to discover more about yourself and your relationships.
