Through both personal and professional experience, Taylor has seen the power of listening to those who feel unheard and have a desire to conceptualize change. She has seen the impact delving into concepts including self-awareness, boundary creation and methods of coping can have on an individual.
Continued education and certifications in Motivational Interviewing and Collaborative Case Management contribute to Taylor’s ability to prioritize individuals remaining at the forefront of decision making.
