Taylor Starns MSW, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

As a Therapist, I believe that central to our success is a safe and supportive Therapeutic Relationship. I prioritize creating a positive relational space in order to enhance your strengths and identify areas for growth. I have been a Therapist since 2016 and enjoy working with people of all ages.

I specialize in Mood Disorders such as anxiety and depression, Eating Disorders, life transitions, Gender and Sexuality, and Social/Relational issues. I have extensive training and experience in supporting LGBTQIA+ adolescents and adults through transitions and mental health distress.

I use various Relational and Evidence Based Therapeutic Modalities in my practice, always from a Client- Centered, Trauma Informed Perspective. These modalities include CBT, Attachment-Based Therapy, EMDR, Psychoeducation, and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.

I am an EMDRIA-Certified EMDR Practitioner, utilizing EMDR to support recovery from trauma, embodied stress, and deeply held negative beliefs. I have an extensive background in Trauma Therapy and am skilled in supporting clients as they cope with trauma and manage its impact on life, relationships, and daily functioning.

I offer an encouraging, non-judgmental space for clients to explore hurt and healing. I love my work and would be honored to support you in your journey!
