Mental Health Therapy Intern

About Me

Taylor is a graduate student completing her practicum with YEG Family Counselling. She is excited to work with a variety of individuals, couples, and families while learning more about how to help them achieve their goals.

Working with Me 

Taylor is driven by her belief that every person has unique strengths that can be used to set and achieve their goals. Her style is collaborative and relaxed, with lots of questions and concrete planning. She thinks that most feelings, thoughts, and behaviours develop as necessary coping skills which can sometimes stay in place longer than they are needed. Exploring these in session is one way to recognize when those coping skills are no longer effective, and what other healthier ways of coping could come into play. Taylor hopes to help her clients gain confidence in their own abilities as the therapeutic relationship grows and communication improves.

My Ideal Client

Taylor works with individuals, couples, and families whose members are all over 10 years old. Taylor especially loves working with:

  • Teens and young adults struggling with identity and change

  • Client who are going through life transitions and are unsure of where they fit in

  • Clients struggling with anxiety or grief

  • Client suffering from insomnia

More About Me

Taylor lives with her partner and two dogs named Ginny & Clark. She enjoys an active lifestyle of running, cycling, and playing most sports. In the summer, you can find her on a golf course or exploring Edmonton's trail system. In the winter, she enjoys curling, playing games with friends, or watching movies at home. Taylor loves to travel (especially via road trip), learn useless trivia, and build puzzles.
