Taylor recently joined the NWAI team as a student clinician. She values providing a safe and collaborative environment in which clients feel empowered to grow and cultivate change in their lives. Taylor has received training in intervention styles rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP). She displays a warm, interactive therapeutic style and engages in a collaborative approach with each client.
Taylor received her Bachelor of Arts in Social Justice and Counseling at Manhattan Christian College before completing her Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at George Fox University. She is currently a third-year doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at George Fox University. Taylor is fueled to achieve her doctorate degree by a desire to better integrate mental health psychotherapy with an assessment background in order to provide a holistic and encompassing conceptualization of her clients. Her work in rural school districts, providing assessment and therapy to a pediatric population, expanded her ability to develop her clinical identity and interest. As such, she is grateful to work with NWAI in providing therapy that better guides clients toward freedom from their fears and empower them to reach new goals and opportunities.
When Taylor is not at work or school, she enjoys spending time with her husband cooking, walking her dogs, and relaxing with a jigsaw puzzle and a cup of hot tea.
