Dawn Taylor, LSW

Do you need someone to just listen to you or provide additional support for what you’re going through?  Are you feeling numb, burnt out, guilty, shame-ridden, or lost? I offer a safe, confidential, unbiased space and meet you where you currently are with unconditional positive regard.

Depression, anxiety, and trauma can be overwhelming, and I want to strive to help those experiencing such difficult feelings. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Illinois, and am a Licensed Social Worker.

My goal is to help you build a coping toolbox. I believe when we have well-built toolboxes, we can choose which tool is needed for everyday life stressors and build that psychological flexibility to handle whatever life might throw at us. I also believe that taking care of your mental health is just as important as your physical health, as the two are interconnected. I utilize techniques from DBT, CBT, Trauma Informed therapy, and Strengths Based approaches to help restore your inner peace. I also offer play therapy for my younger clients.

If you are ready to start your journey towards cultivating self-compassion, gratitude, forgiveness, love, curiosity, or change, let’s begin your journey together. I look forward to working with you.
