Taylor is a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor who earned her Master’s in Clinical Mental Health in June 2021 from Northwestern University. She views therapy as a collaborative experience, with clients and their counselor working together in their therapeutic journey. Taylor strives to offer an empathetic space for clients to navigate and process challenging experiences and emotions, facilitating the initial steps toward healing.

Taylor has experience working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, phase of life issues, grief, and trauma. Taylor is passionate about assisting mothers and fathers through the complexities of pregnancy, postpartum, and the transition into parenthood and aims to provide a non-judgmental space for clients to freely express themselves and process their emotions. She understands that parenthood is a transformative and rewarding journey, but it comes with emotional challenges. Together, we can explore and address the emotional aspects of pregnancy and early parenthood, and foster a path toward healing and well-being.

As a therapist, Taylor facilitates healing through a diverse range of treatment methods, employing an integrative approach to optimize therapeutic benefits. Taylor was trained in psychodynamic therapy and is an EMDRIA approved counselor in training. She also utilizes CBT, DBT, ACT, and strengths-based treatment modalities. Taylor is dedicated to delivering culturally competent and gender affirming care throughout your healing journey and has experience working with people of various cultural backgrounds and members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
