“I believe therapy at its heart is the search for better ways of relating to one another, healing past wounds and finding ways of coping with the unique hand you have been dealt in life. I commend you for that search and believe it is truly a victory to be considering change. And if you choose to include me in your journey I will endeavor to support your choices, help you to find your truth and magnify your strengths.”

-Karen Yvonne Taylor

Are you looking for solutions?

  • Stressed, depressed, or anxious?
  • Suffering from postpartum depression or postpartum anxiety?
  • Overwhelmed by the demands of parenting? Concerned with the level of stress in your home or battling it out with your teen?
  • Seeing that your child is having difficulty paying attention and staying focused, or is engaging in risky behaviors?
  • Plagued by recurring and distressing thoughts, fears, or images? Troubled by behaviors that you can’t control and interfere with your daily life?
  • Having trouble in your relationships? Finding it difficult to deal with life after a divorce or break-up?
  • Working in the pressure cooker of Silicon Valley and tired of having your circuits fried?
  • Or just in need of the perspective and guidance of a compassionate and experienced professional who will work through your concerns and challenges in a supportive setting?


Counseling could be the answer
If you answered yes to any of these questions and you are an adult, parent, or adolescent coping with these or other issues, therapy may help. The benefits of therapy can include:

  • Build stronger relationships
  • Develop skills to manage conflict and stress, and reduce anxiety and depression
  • Heal past trauma, hurt feelings, and anger
  • Increase self-esteem and self-confidence
  • Communicate more effectively with family members, partners, co-workers, and supervisors
  • Avoid power struggles with your child, and develop strategies to cope with behavioral, developmental, and emotional issues
  • Work with an advocate who can help coordinate a treatment plan with doctors, teachers, and other professionals when needed
