Jessica Taylor

, LMFT, NCC

Senior Therapist

As a teenager, Jessica could not just sit back and watch her friends struggle with life challenges. She felt empathy, concern, and did not want to see others struggle alone. As a seasoned therapist today, Jessica is passionate about helping her clients try new skills, develop new patterns for a healthier lifestyle, overcome traumatic experiences, and have a more positive outlook on life. She loves seeing her clients succeed and finds excitement in the work she does with them. Jessica also has specialized training in treating trauma through EMDR and TF-CBT.

Jessica’s approach to therapy is holistic, utilizing the mind, body, and spirit. Clients like you find themselves really enjoying working with Jessica, as they feel validated, and finally able to address their concerns without judgment. Jessica also is an active participant in the therapy room. She wants to see you make progress, and will go the extra mile to ensure that your therapy experience is meaningful.

Many may not know that: Jessica finds peace in being outdoors, where she enjoys hiking, camping, and water activities. As a young child, Jessica never believed she was artistic, as she didn’t paint or draw very well, but as she grew older, she learned that there is more to art than just the basic elementary school art class. She loves creating through sewing, stained glass, and woodworking. Jessica also loves to dance.
