Benefits of Working with Sears Taylor, you get…

Balanced approach. My goal is to help you no longer be dependent on prescription drugs, yet I also have seen medications provide relief at critical times in a client’s life. There is a holistic inter-connection of body, mind, and spirit. Problems occur when these connections get out of balance.

Rapid Results. The unique combination of therapies that I use helps you resolve your pain very quickly so that you may go on to living a joyful, functional life.

Honesty. I will try to keep your expectations of therapy realistic. If I cannot help you, I will not charge you for my time unless you are getting value from our time together. The relationship between the client and the therapist is vital to the success of nay therapy or relationship for that manner.

Understanding. This may seem to be a clique when listed in the counseling business. However, since I have had so many different careers and life experiences, I can empathize with many professions: military, sales, management, engineer. I also have experience as a son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

Wounded Healer. I have gone through many rough patches in my life. I have been fired, injured, humiliated, and just plain failed. I have also been unjustly persecuted and harassed. I battle with obesity and understand addiction. I have lost people dear to me through death and separation.

Specifically, How will I  help you to improve your life?
I combine the strongest elements of the six strongest therapies for uncovering, resolving, and healing past wounds to your psyche aka traumas. Since so many addictions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows are rooted in past traumatic events, a person can have a far better life when these bleeding wounds are healed. We heal these together!!

Narrative Therapy:  where you tell me what you want to accomplish.

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) where we use guided eye movements to bring traumatic events to the surface.

Gestalt Empty Chair. A method where you can relieve a past event and relationship in virtual reality in order to resolve unfinished business. This can feel so real that clients feel they went back in time.

OEI (Observational Existential Integration). A more in depth guided eye movement originating from EMDR but much more effective because it locates problems and neutralizes them even more quickly.

Logotherapy. This is where we discuss the meaning and purpose of your life and what foundational principles give you a reason to live.

CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy). This is the gold standard in therapy, today. It is based upon the concept of the little boy who is afraid to walk by a grave yard, so whistles to distract himself from his fear. If we can act bravely and move forward, our problems and anxieties will eventually decrease. Our emotions caught up with our actions.

What will a session be like?

The first goal is for you to feel safe and comfortable.

Next, I encourage you to be honest and to trust me.

I then guide you to courageously uncover past pain so it can be healed.

Finally, I help you find ways to (re)construct your life so that life is good.

And we will usually enjoy one good laugh together so that you’ll feel better about your progress in life than when you came in.
