Nikki Taylor, LPC

I specialize in individual and family therapy with a focus on working with the underserved population, and children with behavioral problems. My background includes working with children, adolescents, and adults who are at-risk and non at-risk in a variety of settings such as schools, inpatient & outpatient, Head Start and Early Childhood programs.

I have a strong background in behavioral therapy that allows me the ability to assist people in developing a holistic approach in treatment. In my clinical setting, I like to incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness techniques, expressive therapy, talk therapy, and solution focused therapy. However, I adjust my theoretical orientation based upon my clients presenting problems. I feel that it is important to remain open minded, unbiased, empathetic, and show unconditional positive regard when communicating with individuals.

My unique, lively, and unconventional personality aids in building a strong rapport with clients to help them feel comfortable confiding in me. I seek to serve as a catalyst to help promote positive growth and change within each individual. It is imperative that individuals have the willingness to get involved and stay committed throughout the entire therapeutic process in order to receive optimal results. My experience to foster and nurture the development of children, adolescents and adults has allowed me to discover my personal interest to care for others.
