Get to know Taylor

Taylor's method of counseling is theoretically founded on narrative therapy, a type of psychotherapy that emphasizes the interaction between the client and their environment. Narrative therapists hold the view that the stories we tell influence our lives and that we can alter our lives by altering the narration of our stories. In her work with individuals, Taylor’s hope is to help them identify and examine the dominant stories in their life, separate them from the problem and help them create counter-narratives to restore balance and freedom. 

Taylor was born and raised in Grand Prairie, Texas. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Tarleton State University, where she majored in psychology, and she is presently enrolled there to earn her Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. 

Since beginning her career in mental health four years ago, Taylor has gained experience working with children and adolescents in a range of mental health settings, including inpatient, partial hospitalization, outpatient care, day treatment programming, and the emergency department, where she currently serves as a mental health coordinator. 

When Taylor is not working she likes to spend time with her family and friends, participate in “retail therapy” at Target, and go to Pilates.
