I can help with giving you the tools that you need to function under pressure. Together we can develop and implement effective coping skills to maintain the stability that you need in your life to function day in and out.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. In addition, I hold a BA in Psychology. I view counseling as a journey of facilitated self-exploration to increase the level of self-awareness and understanding that helps the individual better navigate the challenges they are facing. I work from a client centered perspective, adapting to each individual's needs. I believe every person is different, and therefore, my modalities should adapt to the needs of the individual. I act as a facilitator for the individual to discover their own strengths, modes of coping, spiritual belief systems, and creativity. Ultimately, it is my job to help individuals identify, develop, and mobilize their resources to successfully find ways to meet their own needs.

Hello, glad you are here. My name is Dawn Taylor I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), Christian Counselor, and Certified NLP Life Coach. I am the founder and owner of Caterpillar Counseling LLC. My motto is " we make changes from the inside out." I believe counseling/therapy is a time of transformation, where the client gets to learn about themselves. My approach is to guide the client through the process of change and healing with the destination being resilience and security in self. As someone who has had many different experiences, I believe I bring a unique perspective and understanding to clients in being able to guide them effectively in their process of change. I use a body, mind, and soul approach to treating mental illness and other challenges we all face in our lives. I believe it is important that the sessions be tailored to the client's needs and that the client is part of the decisions in their treatment. In my experience, the truth sets us free and is often an agent for change. The question then becomes do you want to change and are you willing to do the work necessary for that change? If this is you then I am the counselor for you.

One of the hardest parts of being a parent is watching your child go through something very painful or stressful and not being able to fix it for them. Parenting becomes even more complex when your child has a special need, learning problem, developmental disability, or medical condition. Or, your teen's behavior suddenly changes. Your parenting sixth sense is screaming at you to do something, but you don't know what to do. Call me. I have over thirty-five years of experience treating adolescents, children and families. I have worked in private practice, an interdisciplinary medical clinic, Easter Seals, a military base overseas, and a school. My specializations include developmental and learning disabilities, ADHD, Autism, and behavioral pediatrics. Further, I have extensive experience working with adolescents. I love speaking 16! In the past, I have done psychoeducational evaluations and can provide second opinions about evaluations. Please contact me for a free consultation. I would love to help your family thrive.

Hi, I would like to start with a personal quote I came up with working in addiction treatment for many years. "Fate is for people who fail to take action. Destiny is for people who refuse to accept their failures as fate." Me Simply put, I would be honored and privileged to be a part of your healing journey. I consider myself to be a therapist who is qualified both because of education and utilization of evidence based treatments; and the experiential learning and continued growth of my own life path. I would love to meet you exactly where you are on your current journey and help empower you to move forward. "Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one." Deepak Chopra

Please note: *At this time, I am only taking new 🖥️VIRTUAL TELEHEALTH🖥️ clients.
