Professional statement

Taylor's patients come to therapy because their lives have been speaking and feeling something beyond what they're yet able to feel in touch with. Her patients do not belong to one or few psychological experiences, but rather, come from any given category(ies). Taylor sees people who are interested in the unconscious experiences that have inspired the behaviors, fears, thoughts, habits, desires, etc. that toil, mar, or annoy their lives, and their underlying sensibilities. Taylor's patients come from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Taylor works from the perspective that, through time, such uncovering and unfolding will give patients the necessary clarity and space to think for themselves, come to their own choices and solutions, and find the psychological breathing room they may feel in need of. Taylor sees therapy as a process, the patient-therapist relationship being the place for this process to happen in-between. She views psychotherapy as producing helpful yet unpredictable effects, both during and between sessions, and understands the therapeutic process as being led, most of all, by the unconscious.

Taylor is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the State of Washington. She graduated from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology in 2023 with a Master of Arts Counseling Psychology. She works from psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories.

Taylor only sees patients remotely and has availability Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.


Message to clients

The psychotherapeutic process is an unfolding, an untangling of knots, a slow melting of ice, a cooling of fire, or striking one. Maybe all of these at once. It is little by little. It takes time. It is a place for us to create a connection where your experiences might be able to speak some of their first words. It is an art, an attempt to play, a trust-build, a confrontation, a human connection. A place of ruin, to ruin, to loosen, to strengthen, to be surprised.

The specialties listed on my page are a limited view of the experiences I work with. You'll notice that Zencare has listed some information beside each experience. While this can be helpful, I do not necessarily agree or disagree with each summary and hold my own clinical and theoretical understanding of each experience.

I work from the perspective that every experience we may see as a malfunction, flaw, or pathology has meaning and purpose, even if we don't consciously see or yet appreciate it.

If you'd like to work together you may schedule a first session. If we feel right working together the session fee will be due. If I'm not the one, you owe nothing.
