For the past seven years Taylor Barnett has lived and traveled all over the world, as a teacher and therapist. While living in Alaska she worked closely with the Tlingit and Haida tribe, and gained knowledge of how connection can assist people in their mental, physical, and emotional growth. Working with this tribe allowed her to connect to not only herself, but others, and laid the foundation for how she wanted to contribute to the rest of the world. She felt drawn to deeply intimate, interpersonal work that occurred with kids, adults, and families, and has worked in domestic violence, foster care, schools, and outpatient treatment centers in both Washington and California.
My Approach to Therapy
Taylor currently works as a Jungian Psychotherapist integrating Somatic Psychology and Mindfulness into her clinical work. An ongoing focus in her practice is the mind AND body, and she been successful in treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and trauma. Taylor expresses unconditional positive regard for all of her clients and approaches therapy with genuine curiosity.
Taylor utilizes a much different approach than most therapists and has created a formula to listen in an entirely new way, leaving assumptions and agendas out the door. In using a phenomenological approach, she is a responsive, reflexive, and embodied counselor that allows for the performative aspect of the body to enter the therapeutic space.
Taylor believes the therapy room can be a container for clients to explore their perceptions of the world around them and through this exchange, healing is made possible. She believes that when we are present with ourselves and for others creativity can blossom at its finest, and that this is the art form of therapy.
