Taylor Peterson, B.A, M.A.
I graduated with an MA in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University. I also have a Bachelors of Arts in Behavioral Science and a minor in Business from San Jose State University.
Outside of the office, I’m most likely to be found with a cup of tea and a book. I’ve learned that hearing someone else’s words and story can help me to hear my own. I also love to be outside, in nature. Over the years I have backpacked and camped in mountains throughout the United States and in South America. These experiences have shown me how the wilderness has a profound way of helping us let go, come back to ourselves, and find out how resilient we truly are.
I work with clients who want to get to the roof of issues, understand their symptoms better, and gain the necessary tools to feel more resilient in their lives. I balance helping you gain insight about yourself and past experiences, with supporting you to follow that insight with action for lasting change. I enjoy working with those who are new to therapy, and those who consider themselves experienced clients.
My focus is working with adults and teens struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, family conflict, personal growth, setting boundaries and improving self-confidence. I also work with couples who are experiencing communication issues, anger and resentment, and couples who are simply wanting a “tune-up” at any stage in their relationship.
I am an empathic therapist who will honor your process and meet you where you at. At the same time, I am comfortable challenging you to consider a new perspective and experiment with new solutions. It can be difficult to reach out to a therapist for help, but you deserve support to start building a life that is truly satisfying. I look forward to meeting you.
