Trauma, sexuality, addictions, depression, anxiety, family, relationships, career, occupational stress, dysfunctional coping skills, and nervous system regulation are some of the client challenges I have helped people work through, and overcome. Areas unique to my practice include holistic and integrative approaches which incorporate nutrition, fitness, and other lifestyle issues, and how they impact mental health and wellness.

Hello! My name is Amanda Taylor and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Pennsylvania, a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC), and I have my Master's of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have been working in the mental health field since 2013. I have worked with clients ranging from age 4 up to elderly clients with multiple different mental health struggles including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, PTSD, ADHD, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, parenting issues, relationship problems, social behavior, and crisis counseling. I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques, and typically focus on a strengths-based model. My overall goal is to help people identify where they are right now and achieve where they want to be in the future, with the support of individualized therapy sessions. I utilize CBT to help my clients focus on connecting thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I want to help people understand how thoughts, behaviors, and emotions are linked and influence one another to restructure thinking to develop healthier thoughts, beliefs, and, behaviors. I pull from the strengths-based approach in which I focus on a client’s strengths, resiliency, and resourcefulness to identify steps that can be taken by clients with their best foot forward. I strongly believe everyone needs help with their mental health wellness at some point in their lives, but it takes courage to take the leap to get the help that is needed. I look forward to working with you to identify where you are and achieve where you want to be.

45 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a licensed psychologist in the states of Pennsylvania and North Carolina as well as having been certified as a Clinical Telemental Health Provider. I was trained in a Clinical Psychology program that included a module in Decision Analysis that allows me to address both clinical as well as life issues in terms of the choices made by my clients. In my career, I have worked in different settings such as schools, mental health clinics, psychiatric units, group practices, consultation and training for government and the private sector, and solo practice. Recently, I have been devoting most of my time helping the military and their families at military posts of all the branches of service. I follow an Ethics of Respect in which the client always defines the problem, and not the professional. In this approach, the decision to start the counseling, how long it lasts, and when it ends, is always in the client's hands, although I don't hesitate to voice my opinion at those times when I believe it would be beneficial to continue, but always respectful of the choice if my client disagrees with that suggestion.

Welcome! Way to go, you are ready to make yourself a priority. This might be the first thing you’ve done for yourself in a long time. Congratulations. I am excited to start this journey together, whether that is to learn to better take care of yourself and your happiness; work through lows, darkness, stressors, or anxiousness; or process a relationship or career you are struggling with. Whatever brings you here, I offer you a nonjudgmental listening ear, support, feedback, and help to achieve your goals. Therapy takes time, I don’t have a magic wand I can wave and make it all better, but we can work together and put you on a track to keep thriving. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, originally from Colorado, I have lived in several states and countries, I love getting to know new people, places, and cultures. I have experience in working with high school and college students, as well as adults in crisis due to mental health, domestic violence, suicidality, homelessness, and substance abuse. In working with teenagers, I work to improve family dynamics, communication, and provide support to parents. I enjoy working with adolescents and young adults because they are curious, exploring, and eager to figure out who they are, who they want to be, who they want to love, and everything in between. I also think that is what a lot of us adults are still doing. We’re just not as open about it. I use a person-centered, multicultural, solution-focused, and a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy. I seek to provide a safe place where you feel comfortable having uncomfortable conversations because therapy isn’t always easy, but I want you to be your authentic self while we work together. Britt

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a West Conshohocken counselor?

Before seeing your West Conshohocken therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in West Conshohocken.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A West Conshohocken licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in West Conshohocken, Pennsylvania can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
