“Sometimes reaching out for help can be intimidating and finding someone to truly help you, can be even more difficult. I can honestly say that Taylor’s assistance, guidance, and support was above and beyond in my time of need. He is truly passionate about his work and his clients. I am so thankful to have found his help.”

“Before seeing Taylor, I was struggling with OCD behavior, compulsive exercise, and learning how to cope with my past in a healthy way. He was very patient, understanding, and non-judgmental, which allowed me to uncover problems that were essentially being pushed aside. I used to get uncomfortable and self-conscious about discussing certain things that happened when I was younger, but the environment that he creates is very welcoming and I felt at ease when memories came to mind. He also asked me if I wanted him to push me further and challenge me, as far as difficult topics with my past were concerned, or to back off at times. This meant a lot, because it showed that he respected me as a person and not what I was in therapy for. Overall, Taylor is an understanding, professional, and down-to-earth individual, and I would recommend him to anyone!”

“Simply put, Taylor gets it. He helped me identify multiple things I was doing that were actually making my anxiety and stress worse for me and helped me figure out new ways of managing things that continue to help me feel better every day. I didn’t really know what to expect when I started counseling, but Taylor was always friendly, caring and supportive. I’d send my family and friends to see him in a heartbeat if they ever needed help.”

“Taylor is one of the only people in my life that has been able to understand, be sympathetic with, and help relieve my obsessive thoughts and anxiety. Before I met him, I was convinced that no therapist would ever be able to help me, because I had tried so many before and only felt worse after their visits. Taylor provided me with a safe environment and a feeling of trust I have rarely reached with anyone. I would recommend anyone to his caring, understanding, productive, and healing services. I firmly believe I would be terribly hard-pressed to find such a significant connection with another therapist. Taylor’s method is impeccable he  gives effective and meaningful feedback during sessions, balanced perfectly with giving me all the space I need to release all of my thoughts; he’s not just a sounding board like other therapists may be, Taylor is an interactive force in helping me create the respect and love for myself necessary to overcome my problems.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Taylor for about 1.5 years. I first met him at the Alexian Brothers Center for Anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders where he was my lead therapist. After I finished the program I continued with therapy sessions at his private practice. He was always kind and considerate yet kept me on track with my exposures. He also would provide supplemental reading materials that were relevant to the issues I was dealing with. He went above and beyond as we moved out of Chicago to help me find a suitable therapist. He took the time to research the education and credentials of potential new therapists. I highly recommend Taylor for anyone dealing with OCD and/or anxiety symptoms.”
