Who I am

The Past

My name is Taylor. I have worked in the field of mental health in crisis stabilization treatment settings since 2010, during which I developed an approach to help clients express their thoughts and emotions and chain them into new personal narratives.

I have provided perspective, clarity, and narrative support to more than a thousand clients. By identifying themes and guiding clients toward powerful connections, I help them learn new things about themselves and, more importantly, recognize how that self-awareness can lead to ongoing personal fulfillment. 

The Moment

I helped a friend create, outline, edit, and practice a Maid of Honor toast for her sister’s wedding just two weeks before the ceremony. She wrote it and I guided her through it to confidence and even excitement! 

But there was so much more to the speech than the words she wrote or the breathing she rehearsed. The meaning that she put behind the content defined the narrative that she wanted to present and that narrative matched her sentimental goals for the toast. Upon reflection, I knew that the approach that I used to help that friend get over the obstacle of creating a speech could be offered to so many more people across a wider range of projects. 

The Future

My goal is to provide peace of mind in the form of customized narrative coaching. I work with individuals on writing, public speaking, and personal narrative as well as startups and small businesses with their brand narrative and messaging. Knowing how to effectively organize, modify, and convey a story dramatically affects one's self-esteem and I am confident in my ability to help in all three areas.
