My goal is to meet the client where they are in their journey and assist with implementing strategies for growth. I rely heavily on CBT, client and solution focused therapies. Strategies used vary based on individual client needs, but may include problem-solving, homework, understanding the relationships between beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, as well as focusing on the present.

Lauren Taylor

Licensed Professional Counselor Associate (LPC-A) supervised by Rachita Sharma LPC-S

Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC)

 

I received my Master’s degree from the University of North Texas in Rehabilitation Counseling. Both my educational background and my personal life have well equipped me for working with people from a holistic approach through a CBT and REBT technique lens. I specialize in working with people with disabilities and therefore tend to work from a Feminist Theory viewpoint as it emphasizes diversity and self empowerment. I have 2 years of experience working at the University of North Texas as an ENGAGE program coordinator where I work with students who are neurodivergent to achieve their social, academic, and vocational goals. In addition to my professional history, I was born with a physical disability called Muscular Dystrophy and have used a power chair since the age of 3. My life’s mission has always been to become a mental health counselor with a disability for people with disabilities, as well as for anyone seeking a therapist who will meet them where they are at and grow together. I’m looking forward to meeting and working with you!
