My name is Tasha Taylor and I am the owner of Therapeutic Counseling Services. I serve a mission to help individuals experience complete happiness, mental wholeness, peace and prosperity in every aspect of their lives. As a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT), I see therapy as a collaborative process every step of the way- from goal setting to termination. I focus on your strengths and what is working or has worked in the past. Each individual is unique and will experience and receive therapeutic services based on those unique individual needs. I currently work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families.
I have experience with individuals dealing with behavioral difficulties, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, poor school performance, stress management, grief, trauma and abuse. I have experience with adolescents and adults dealing with conflict resolution and I use a family systems perspective to help them build a healthy recovery environment.
My experience with couples range from unmarried young adult couples, pre-marital couples, and married couples who want to enhance their intimacy and married couples thinking about or going through a divorce. I also work with the entire family to improve communication, closeness, sibling and parent relationships.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I broaden the traditional emphasis on the individual to attend to the nature and role of individuals in primary relationship networks such as marriage and the family. I take a holistic perspective to health care; therefore, I am concerned with the overall, long-term well-being of individuals and their families. I use therapeutic techniques that are designed to meet those goals (e.g. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy-CBT, Family Systems, Gottman Method Couples Therapy model, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Play Therapy techniques and Grief and Loss).
A family's patterns of behavior influence the individual. In marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't just the person - even if only a single person is in counseling - it is the set of relationships in which the person is imbedded. I provide counseling services to individuals, couples and families from a systemic perspective.
I treat a wide range of serious clinical problems including, but not limited to, depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual psychological problems and child-parent problems. Research indicates that marriage and family therapy is as effective, and in some cases more effective than standard and/or individual treatments for many mental health problems such as mood disorders, adult alcoholism and drug abuse, children's conduct disorders, chronic physical illness in adults and children, and marital distress and conflict.
