Nicole Taylor #102582

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Yoga Teacher

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Human Services with a specialization in non-profit management and a Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I am 200hr certified yoga teacher and have focused training in therapeutic yin & restorative yoga practices.

I am a certified trainer for The National Council of Behavioral Health’s Mental Health First Aid Program.

I am currently working to complete my doctorate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, where my focus is on decolonizing psychotherapy and increasing culturally affirming and indigenous practices in mental health care. 

I have been providing therapeutic mental health and community support services to individuals, families, and youth since 2008. I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, shelters, non-profit organizations, schools, and mental health agencies. Through this work, I help clients to better understand themselves and create action plans to live the type of life that is desired. 

 

I am a Southern California Angeleno with deep roots in Inglewood. I currently call Northern California home, although I often miss the liveliness of Los Angeles.  

I am an introverted lover of all things plants, yoga, travel, and food, especially TACOS!

I am generally informal & laidback,  which I’ve been told increases comfort and makes me approachable or perhaps, a bit aloof.  I will let you decide.

Despite my social awkwardness, I very much enjoy assisting others on their journeys of self-discovery and healing and hope for the opportunity to do so with you. 

 

Approaches I Use

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Existential Therapy

Yoga Psychotherapy

Solution-focused Brief Therapy

The Gottman Method

Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT)

Attachment Theory

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

I am looking forward to the opportunity to connect with you.
