Meet Melissa Taylor
My name is Melissa Taylor. My approach to therapy is eclectic and based on a variety of clinical experiences which includes providing mental health treatment in community clinics, inpatient psychiatric facilities, and the parole department. I also utilize evidenced-based therapies and my professional/personal mindfulness training. This allows me to meet people where they are and customize a path toward personal growth and positive change.
I believe you are the expert in your life. My role is to help you find your strengths and apply them to the areas where you may struggle. I provide a safe, supportive space from which you can express yourself, and explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. You will learn new skills to take steps toward meeting your goals and better meet life’s challenges. We all need support and to be truly heard and seen. If you desire change and healing in areas of your life, it would be a privilege to work with you. Please contact me.
“Attending the MBSR class with Melissa Taylor has made my life brighter and more manageable. She facilitates an open environment where sharing personal insights becomes something to look forward to, yet it’s not required. There is never pressure to share, just an openness if you feel it’s right for you. Over the years I have dabbled in meditation, and this course took me to a new level of understanding myself, relationships, and inner acceptance. I highly encourage anyone who thinks mindfulness might be for them, to subscribe to this class with Melissa. You won’t regret it. Learning to love oneself is a gift and this class will nurture that gift."
“I've always been curious about mindfulness but never had the tools to intentionally put it into practice. This MSBR class changed the way I deal with stress and how I view life. I appreciate and am grateful for the little things in life. Thank you Melissa for living in passion and bringing peace to the world through mindfulness.”
“I want to thank you for a wonderful experience. I learned a lot, one thing that stands out to me is while focusing on breathing, to just notice and name thoughts, feelings, sensations without judgement or attachment, but acceptance. Then decide later if and how to deal with it, and approach it with curiosity. I also what to say that you have a very loving, accepting, caring approach in the way you communicated with all of us and made it very safe to be open and share”
