About Me

Hello and welcome!

My name is Taylor and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Masters Certified Addiction Professional currently practicing in Florida. I received my Bachelor's degree in Sociology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison , and my Masters in social work from Loyola University Chicago, with a concentration in mental health and substance abuse counseling.

I have extensive experience working with a wide variety of people and concerns, including substance abuse and dependence, community mental health , individual, family and group counseling with adolescents and adults, international social work practice with children and adults affected by HIV/AIDS, wilderness therapy, nonviolent crisis intervention and experiential therapy. I am very passionate about working with women, particularly in the areas of depression, anxiety, stress management, self-esteem, eating disorders, health/wellness, empowerment, grief/loss, trauma and substance abuse.

My approach is holistic, and I believe that what works for one person may not work for everyone. We are all unique, so I like to use a variety of evidence-based approaches with my clients, focusing mainly on education and cognitive behavioral therapy, and helping you draw on your personal strengths to help you help yourself. I am committed to treating each client with dignity, respect, empathy, and without judgement.

I look forward to meeting you and assisting you in reaching your goals in your own time and at your own pace!

Taylor has been a blessing. She is insightful, caring, understanding, and helpful. I can tell she puts a lot of time and thought into her responses which makes me feel like she really cares about how I'm doing. I don't ever feel like I'm being judged which allows me to be open and honest. I can't say enough about how wonderful she is!

Ive been talking to Taylor for a few weeks now and I can trust her. She's so genuinely helpful, with her advice, knowledge and she also sends links to things with further Information to help get your head around whatever it is she's trying to explain. It also gives the reassurance that it's not all made up and that there is actual proof of what she's saying, this also contributes to the trust I have for her. I'm going to be sad when my membership ends with Taylor but I'll be forever grateful as she was the first person I opened up to professionally. She has given me hope and courage. I wish her all the best with everything she does and everyone she helps. She truly is amazing and I can't thank her enough!

Taylor is responsive and very easy to relate to. I look forward to our exchanges, it is like talking to an un-judging, helpful friend. She has really helped me to put things in perspective and to not fell guilty for feeling the things that I do.
I highly recommend her to anyone experiencing anxiety or depression.
