Dr. Paul-Roy Taylor is a licensed psychologist with a private practice in Los Angeles. He specializes in sex and relationship issues, and he frequently writes for publication, lectures, and conducts workshops on these topics throughout the community. Clients often choose him for this expertise to address their sex and intimacy concerns, as well as struggles with peer, romantic, and family relationships. Dr. Taylor also has advanced experience treating behavioral addiction and substance use. He has worked in nearly all levels of care from outpatient to inpatient-residential. Dr. Taylor is particularly passionate about working with members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Bowenian differentiation therapy is Dr. Taylor's primary approach. This method tackles long-standing obstacles, fosters self-confrontation, manages daily anxieties by harnessing them as opportunities for growth, and carries the ultimate goal of living life in the way that makes the most sense for you and your needs. He also utilizes cognitive-behavioral techniques to address concrete symptoms that often exist initially in treatment. He has advanced training in motivational interviewing to help maximize your innate desire to move forward.
Core to Dr. Taylor's style are objectivity, thoughtfulness, a healthy bit of confrontation, and always some humor. Dr. Taylor believes successful therapy is therapy that ends, and he helps clients set realistic, achievable goals met by developing fundamental skills that help clients thrive after therapy is complete.
Dr. Taylor earned a PhD in clinical psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology in Los Angeles and his BA in Linguistics and Psychology from the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). His most recent staff position was as Substance Abuse Specialist for a collection of federally funded community health clinics throughout Los Angeles.
