(LCSW, CDWF)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (CDWF) practicing in Waco, Texas. My therapeutic practice centers around teens, adults, and families facing challenges such as divorce, eating disorders, traumatic experiences, self-harming behaviors, grief/loss, and abuse. My approach is to resource my clients with tools so they are empowered with the ability to create a more secure, healthy, and loving relationships. I also work to create an atmosphere and a dynamic set of coping tools for the client to be more powerful and directive in their own life choices.

What I love so much about my practice is discovering what resonates and supports each person’s specific process the most. All of us heal and express life differently and the work I do with my clients is individualized and specific to them. Through creativity, many of the challenges and traumas can be resolved in a powerful way. ​

Written by N.A. on Sep 11, 2020 after counseling with Taylor for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related issues

I had a lot of concerns when first signing up for BetterHelp as I've only ever done in-person counseling in the past, and I had trouble finding a counselor who would assure me they wouldn't let any prejudices the lifestyle choices with which a lot of the issues I needed to talk about revolve around get in the way. Taylor was very understanding about my concerns and very quick to establish trust between us, and I feel very comfortable opening up with her and I can already see myself starting to make progress with some of the cognitive dissonance I've been dealing with. Taylor puts in a lot of effort beyond just our live sessions, I really feel like I'm getting a lot with her despite my initial dislike of BetterHelp's setup for 30 min sessions. I have a lot of confidence in her efficacy as a counselor, more than I've ever had at only 3 sessions in with another counselor.

Taylor has been great in all matters, specially through the pandemia it was very conforting to have someone to talk to. She has also helped me with my personal relationships and professional goals. She is very versatile, always shares great tools and helps me navigate my emotions

Taylor has been a great counsellor so far she is understanding and listens without judgement. It is great to be able to text her in between sessions to talk through issues that are happening in real time.

Taylor is great. She listens, empathizes, and gives me tools and other ideas to help me. I always feel better after talking with her. I’m really glad I decided to start this.
