About me

Hello! I am very glad that you are here reading this today. Please know that you are important, and yes your life has value. Feeling down? That’s why I'm here – to help build you back up. Within the many years of experience I have acquired in the mental health field, I have worked with clients of all ages, backgrounds, and with a variety of concerns. I am dedicated though to getting to know and understand your unique dilemma that brings you here today.

Not sure where to start? Trust that I have many questions to help guide our discussions, interventions to lead our sessions, and patience just to listen. My counseling style is really just to assist you on your journey through life, provide recommendations for how to better achieve your goals, and motivate you to make the necessary changes that you seek to live a life worth living. I honestly believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

Nervous? That's normal… even if it does not feel normal! It takes so much courage to reach out for a more fulfilling and happier lifestyle, and a leap of faith to take the steps needed toward making a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and encourage you.

I look forward to working together.

Taryn has been a great help to me. I came to Betterhelp in dire need of someone to talk with about the situation I'm in, and she has been very supportive. She always responds in a timely manner to the messages I send in between our appointments.

I absolutely recommend Taryn!
She is an excellent listener, friendly yet professional, dedicated, and supportive. She offered me a safe space to talk about everything without judgement, a fresh perspective on things, and guidance / resources / tips that helped me to work through my ‘storm’. I am so grateful to have had her in my corner.
