Taylor enjoys working with teens and adults who have experienced traumatic or stressful events and find themselves feeling stuck, unable to move forward due to the unwanted symptoms and behaviors stemming from these events. She empathetically walks alongside clients as they go deep and do the hard work to create a more healthy and fulfilling life.
Taylor utilizes a blend of EMDR, Polyvagal Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and attachment-informed theoretical approaches and techniques in her practice. She supports clients in learning new ways of coping, strengthening self-compassion, and reprocessing negative beliefs in order to enhance our sense of safety, control, and connection to others. She specializes in treating anxiety and mood disorders, PTSD, attachment trauma and related issues, burnout and chronic stress, and ADHD management.
Taylor received both her Bachelors of Social Work and Masters of Social Work from UNCW. She has completed her EMDR basic training through The EMDR International Association (EMDRIA). Taylor is a Wilmington local that has served the Cape Fear community in many different clinical settings, including family based services, with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and crisis services. Taylor continues to volunteer in the community as a Guardian ad Litem to advocate for children and teens in foster care to have a safe, loving, and permanent home.
