“A life without cause is a life without effect.” Hello, my name is Taylor!

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate with a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Houston Baptist University, supervised by Angela Waggoner, MA, Ph.D., CSC(TX), LPC-S(TX), LCDC(TX), LPC-S(VA), LPC-S(LA), NCC. I will be pursuing my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology beginning in August 2023 to further my education in counseling.

I am published in research in LGBTQAI+, micro aggressions, and sexual behaviors. I am also fluent in American Sign Language and have experience providing mental health services to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing populations. I enjoy contributing to the research that mental health practitioners implement in practice. My counseling training and experiences have emphases in the following populations: ethnic minorities, LGBTQAI+, Deaf and Hard of Hearing, women, African-American/Black women, African-American/Black males, military, marginalized populations, disenfranchised people of color, Christian and spirituality, adolescents, young adults, and adults.

About My Philosophy

I firmly believe that everyone has a unique purpose and skill set that makes them one of a kind. Creating a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to freely express themselves is of utmost importance. My goal is to put the client first and ensure that I collaborate with the client to address their needs.

I have a holistic approach and strive to address the whole client (mind, body, and spirit). It is my life’s purpose to assist others in identifying their purpose and discovering the tools to overcome life’s obstacles. Life happens! And helping others navigate through life’s happenings while achieving their goals and gaining further insight and resiliency is my passion. My life’s mission and desire is to work with clients who seek to find wholeness in all domains of their lives including themselves and their relationships.
