With a deep understanding of the unique challenges and developmental needs of young men, Taylor has dedicated his career to providing compassionate, evidence-based therapeutic support to help adolescents navigate the complexities of their teenage years.

Throughout his career, Taylor has successfully worked with diverse groups of adolescent males, addressing a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, family conflicts, academic pressures, substance abuse, suicidality, and social challenges. His approach is rooted in a blend of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and family systems theory, allowing them to tailor their interventions to the specific needs of each client and their family.

Taylor is skilled at building strong therapeutic alliances with their clients, which is crucial for fostering trust and encouraging open communication. By focusing on strengths and resilience, Taylor empowers young men to develop effective coping strategies, improve their emotional regulation, and build healthy relationships.

In addition to individual therapy, Taylor has extensive experience facilitating group therapy sessions, which provide adolescents with valuable opportunities to connect with peers facing similar challenges. These groups focus on developing social skills, enhancing self-esteem, and promoting positive peer interactions.

Taylor holds a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northcentral University and is a member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). They regularly attend professional development workshops and conferences to stay current with the latest research and best practices in the field.
