Taylor Young, LPC, is a Mental Health Therapist who strives to meet each client where they are at in their life’s journey, hoping to provide reflection, support, and guidance to get through their life’s challenges. She believes that everyone in this world has a voice and a story worthy of being heard and validated. She believes that a strong relationship is at the heart of therapy, and that openness, flexibility, and collaboration with the client are essential for effective treatment. She believes that family, friends, and community are systems of support and influence in our daily lives. Understanding how one fits into their systems is an integral part of the counseling and healing process.
Taylor holds a Bachelor of Science in Interpersonal Communication from the University of Wisconsin La Crosse and a Master of Science in Education in Professional Counseling from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.
Taylor has training in and experience working with evidence-based practices CBT, DBT, and ACT. She also has experience utilizing mindfulness, art therapy techniques, and play therapy techniques to support clients’ processing. Taylor is always looking to further her education and experience by learning more about the intersectionality of eating disorders and race, sexuality, ability, privilege, age, gender, and size.
Outside of work, Taylor loves traveling, knitting and crocheting, watching movies, and playing tabletop board games with her husband. Taylor also spends a lot of time with her dogs, Polly and Kippy, playing fetch and going on long walks on the Green Circle Trail.
