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 was great today. He really listened to me and then gave me a strategy that I know will help me reach my goals.
My wife and I have been fighting for years, at least 10. When we reached out for help their wasn't a clear single problem. All we were doing is fighting each other. This process has not been easy to say the least, but we are moving forward. Currently we dont explode at each other and simply listen. It's been the best time my wife and I have had together in years and this is thanks to Chad. We have tried other therapists in the past and Chad is by far the best person for our complicated marriage. we have already recommended chad to some close friends and would recommend Chad to anyone thinking of getting help.
Thank you chad for everything
I have been working with Chad for a couple months now and am very happy with my counseling. He listens and helps me work through problems. He is experienced in the area which I am having trouble with and has exceeded my expectations.
Chad is great to work with. I feel heard and validated and he helps me work through things with a different perspective. I highly recommend working with Chad.
Chad has been such a blessing to me and has really helped me through some dark times. I appreciate his sincerity, dedication and commitment to seeing me through this season. He is a great counselor and shares his wisdom with tact and grace.
Chad has been an absolute blast to work with. He's well versed in many concepts that have helped open my awareness. No weapons ate more potent than brevity and simplicity.
Working with Chad Taylor is great! He really listens and helps you figure out exactly what you need help with and also guides you in identifying what areas to focus on to help you become a more well-rounded, confident, and emotionally healthy individual. He also allows you to introduce your own goals and topics that you want to discuss with with complete enthusiasm and support. He offers practical and tangible advice and ideas on what to do to help move you forward with whatever you are trying to achieve in therapy. It's obvious that he gives you his full attention and even looks at your progress from previous sessions in order to be well-prepared and updated for your next meeting, making every session efficient and valuable without wasting time going over things already discussed. He respectfully points out behaviors that may be maladaptive while making you feel safe and cared for- you really feel that he only wants the best for you. He approaches sensitive topics with gentleness and respects your boundaries. Working with Chad has been incredibly helpful so far and I can't wait to continue therapy with him!
I have already had a childhood friend sign up and he seems to be doing better
I have been extremely busy but Chad continues to reach out even when I don't have the time to.
At first I was unsure about online therapy. I had tried it once before and got a counselor who just wasn’t hearing me and wasn’t very in depth with what I may or may not need to figure out my concerns. Chad Taylor changed my perspective and I am confident that he is doing everything to help me with my concerns. He stays engaged and always looks to every need to see where the problem stems from and how to help you find it and understand it.
Chad has been very supportive and responsive. He has brought up excellent points that really address my concerns.
Awesome! Really listens and has given me many ideas to try.
