I am Jamula (Jamalah) Taylor and I am an LMFT. I have worked with many adults from various backgrounds from homelessness to prison inmates. I pursued my career path so that I can help others like myself, my friends, and my family obtain the support they need. I know seeking help can be difficult and scary especially when you do not know where to start. I want to let you know identifying you may need/want help is the first step that many do not take so great job!! I specialize in working with adults with depression, anxiety, codependency, stress, and Domestic Violence. My approach is calming and can be laid back when necessary. I am not the expert in your life, I am a supporter. I like to think of myself as a member of your team to see you reach your goal of being a better you.

My name is Joy Burgner. I have been licensed in the state of California since 2011. I am extremely open-minded, and there have been several experiences that have occurred in my life that have led me to adopt a completely non-judgmental stance when it comes to treating my clients. These qualities tend to engender my ability to form and build a strong therapeutic alignment and leads to my clients feeling free to express, explore, and process life events, thoughts and feelings that have led to emotional distress or problems in their lives. I have spent the majority of my career treating adolescents within the juvenile justice system and teenagers in the foster care system placed in group homes. I also was part of the mobile response team where I assessed for homicide or suicide for clients of all ages in a variety of settings. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work at Cal State Long Beach and my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Science from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

Hello, and thank you for checking out my profile page. I applaud you for deciding to enter therapy. It has never been a better time than now. I know that you have a lot of options and choices in selecting a provider, and I am grateful to be one who you are considering to work with. When you make the decision to find someone to talk with, it is so important that you find the right person that feels best for you. I believe in making this process work for you. Should you decide to work with me, I operate from the premise that we are working together, and that you know yourself best and what will work for you. My goal is to provide a supportive and compassionate environment where you can feel safe in addressing items that are personal to you, from the more general ideas to the personal feelings that can make us feel vulnerable. I work with individuals and couples around issues related to relationships, anxiety and depression, as well as self esteem and self worth. Together we will work from a whole person approach to address items and issues related to mind, body, and spirit with a goal to help you feel your best self. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the faulty belief patterns and habits holding you back.

I especially enjoy working with clients who are navigating difficult transitions such as divorce, relationships, work, adding to their family, retirement, and the many other journeys of life. My personal experience of my sons passing in 2008 was a large part of my desire to work in the counseling field. Through my own journey, I recognized how difficult past experiences can often play large roles in how we navigate life. My goal with therapy is to offer my clients a caring, attuned therapist as we find new ways to solve problems, heal old wounds, and strengthen the way you live your life. I embrace client focused/strength based theories, CBT, and love the works of Brene Brown and Internal Family Systems.

My approach is solution focused. I am not primarily concerned with how or why your present challenge developed but will focus instead on helping you to find a way forward. I hope to elicit and reinforce your positive attributes and competencies and help you to access your inner strength. Your ability to change or improve your situation depends on your desire to do so and my job is to awaken that desire within you. The biggest challenge all of us face is negative thinking. This is a reflection of our own disappointment of what we see when we look inside ourselves. By improving our self-image through accentuating our positive qualities we begin to see the world in a more positive light. A sure way of feeling better about ourselves is to find something good in every other human being.
