About me

Hello! I am glad that you have chosen Better Help to guide you through whatever difficult situation that you are facing. My name is Chad Taylor, and I am originally from Illinois where I was born and raised for the first 38 years of my life. I spent my time right out of high school working for the Illinois Department of Corrections then decided to go back to school to pursue a new career. I graduated from Western Illinois University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology. After I graduated, I thought about going into ministry, but I decided to pursue counseling. I continued my education through Lincoln Christian University, and graduated in 2015 with a Masters Degree in Counseling. I operate out of Cognitive Behavioral Framework with Motivational Interviewing. I have also been certified in Anger Management with the National Anger Management Association. I spent the first two years after graduation working in the community mental health field. Then I spent two years as a Clinical Therapist at the Illinois Department of Human Services Treatment and Detention Facility where I worked with sexually violent persons who were civilly committed under the Illinois Civil Commitment Act. After my time there I decided to go back to community mental health. When on a vacation to Wisconsin Dells I decided to look for a counseling job in Wisconsin and through a series of events and numerous trips to the area I was hired and moved to the area in March of 2019, and I have loved every minute of it. In my spare time I like to hangout with my family, read, play chess and watch football. I look forward to meeting with you and helping you on your journey.

Chad is a phenomenal listener. I truly feel that he cares about what I am saying and works with me to problem solve. He uses concrete solutions like grounding and deep breathing which have been so helpful. My anxiety has greatly improved and I feel like I am in a much better place! Thank you Chad!
