Elizabeth Taylor, LPC

Elizabeth Taylor View Specialties



 
During my early adolescent years, I experienced a tragic loss that forever changed me. For years I had questions and tried to determine the meaning of the tragedy. Why did that happen? How would I and others survive?  These questions led me on a quest to understand myself, my identity, my purpose and my value in a very deep way. And looking back, there is no question that the journey that began in my early teens would eventually lead me into the field of counseling. I knew early on I wanted to help others understand this kind of loss. To help them find meaning and healing in the midst of tragedy, in the midst of trials. 
 
   Do you feel stuck or over-whelmed in life?
   Is your marriage in trouble?
   Do you have difficulty communicating with your spouse? 
   Are you struggling with your parent-teen conflicts?
   Do you often feel depressed, anxious or stressed out?
   Are you go through infertility? 
   Have you experienced a tragic loss? 
 
I understand that deciding to seek professional counseling can be frightening and over-whelming. It is my hope that my clients would feel safe, comfortable and accepted, regardless of the difficulty they may be facing.

Philosophy:
I believe the most effective counseling experience is a cooperative process between a client and therapist in which past and present wounds, patterns and relationships are explored.  It is one that sometimes involves pain, comfort, compassion, time and healing. It is a unique relationship that requires mutual trust, honest disclosure and commitment to the goal.  
 
* Of particular interest to me are women's issues, such as life-balance and infertility, building healthy relationships, and teen girls' identity issues.
 
 Finding and maintaining balance in life is a key to my happiness and peace.  I believe it is one of the most challenging things working women face in this generation.  With the pulls and pressures from children, spouses, employers, schools, maintaining a home and all that these things involve, finding time for ourselves is very difficult, and at times, feels impossible and selfish.  But in my experience, juggling a career, a husband, children, family relationships, friendships and individual growth can be over-whelming.  I believe having a balanced life helps restore our relationships, our peace and our hope.
