Taylor currently holds the credential of National Certified Counselor (NCC) through the National Board of Certified Counselors, and is also a Registered Therapist Intern under a South Dakota plan of supervision (under the supervision of Faith Carlson, MA, LPC-MH, QMHP). In 2023, Taylor completed her internship experience at a private practice in Minnesota that provided outpatient counseling services, where she worked with diverse backgrounds, as well as a wide variety of ages and needs. Taylor has continually dedicated her clinical attention throughout her education and recent professional experiences to learning how to best assess for and treat eating disorders (such as anorexia, bulimia, ARFID, and binge eating diagnosis) and disordered eating. Taylor connects and learns from a mentor therapist that also clinically focuses on treating eating disorders and disordered eating, monthly (since December of 2022). Taylor’s approach to counseling focuses and aligns with what is needed for individuals to make purposeful change in their unique and personalized way. Taylor often uses aspects of evidence-based modalities, such as Compassion Focused Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. Taylor believes people deserve a non-judgmental, safe, genuine, and compassionate space to express their experiences, and to enter into their courageous journey of recovery. Taylor follows her supervisor’s approach in collaborating closely with access to specialized and trained eating disorder dietitians across the United States.
