Taylor Goldman, LCSW-C
Why I do this work:
In life, we are met by a variety of different hurdles and I believe the experience and strength we gain from withstanding them is what shapes who we are as a whole. I am passionate about helping others work towards bringing to light the best version of themselves to not only improve their own well-being, but to assist in strengthening the healthy and meaningful relationships in their life. Throughout the course of our work together, you can expect to be provided with a safe, nurturing and supportive space.
I am passionate about working with young adults, teenage girls and children with anxiety and depressive disorders, as well as women entering the world of motherhood who may be struggling with perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I find helping them further understand their experiences, thoughts and beliefs and how they may be impacting their troublesome symptoms can be incredibly beneficial. I also have a passion in helping teens that engage in self-harming behaviors, teaching healthy coping skills to replace less healthy ones while also working on replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. I work collaboratively with my clients to develop meaningful goals to work towards to help increase their overall fulfillment in life.
Eating Disorders and Personality Disorders are outside of my expertise and therefore I would not be a strong fit. I would be happy to help with referring you to alternative therapists who would be better suited to meet your needs.
