Hello! I’m Laurie.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #90687

You are a courageous person. If you have come this far in your search for support, these are some things I have found to be true: you have tried every strategy you know to find relief from whatever is troubling you. It is painful to keep watching the people you love struggle. You would do anything to make things better, but maybe you feel stuck. You are not alone. NOW is the time to talk with someone who can offer you new strategies to help you through a difficult phase. TODAY is the day that someone joins you on your journey and holds hope. I come from a strength-based approach and strongly hold to the power of attachment. Although I have experience and training in various methods of therapy, I value what you bring to the client-therapist relationship and would like to know what works for you. Working together in mutual respect is the key to any relationship. I believe that as we work together, healing will occur. Although my specialty is working with children, I also enjoy working with individuals, couples, and teens. I look forward to meeting you!

Laurie Taylor, MS, is the clinical director of Chico Creek Counseling. She is an attachment and trauma informed licensed marriage and family therapist who works with adults, children, teens, and couples by focusing on their strengths. Laurie believes that everyone deserves to have at least one person who will support them through some of the bumpy paths of this journey called “life”, and would like to offer her support. When Laurie is not at work playing with kids on the floor, she can be found with her family playing on the floor.
