Taylor is an Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). She earned her Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice and Master’s of Social Work from East Carolina University. While in her master’s program Taylor conducted research with at risk adolescents which has largely shaped her career in clinical social work. Taylor has experience providing care to a variety of communities including individual, family and group therapy with eating disorders, life transitions, self esteem work, anxiety, and religious and spiritual exploration. Taylor has worked with all people across varying levels of care and age ranges, with a focus on adolescents, families and young adults. Taylor is committed to creating a safe space for all to show up as the most authentic version of themselves, and is passionate about helping others reach their highest and most whole version of themselves.
I believe that our pasts can inform us and they do not have to define us. Each person’s story holds value and should be honored in the moment, while working towards who we want to become through the therapeutic process. The therapeutic space is one where we get to create a new beginning and I find joy in empowering my clients to explore, define, and set their own boundaries for their best lives. I find value in partnering with clients in the therapeutic process to address the tough issues that are standing in the way of helping them in creating full lives worth living. I approach therapy from a strengths based perspective while helping each individual client develop solutions that will aid in their growth and overall improved sense of self. Taylor utilizes a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help people figure out why it is they operate the way they do, and then develop strategies to improve those behaviors and thought processes.
Taylor finds joy in traveling, spending time with loved ones and cooking, when she has some free time.
