I had never called a therapist and didn’t know where to begin. I looked online and saw Chris Taylor. I had set out to call a few and pick who I felt was the best fit. After 15 minutes on the phone with Chris I knew he was the therapist for me. I appreciated his warm, genuine approach. It was like I was talking to my friend and not some stuffy shrink
My daughter is a difficult teenager who has caused my husband and myself a lot of problems. Having two younger children in the home, we were worried that she was setting a bad example. Chris was able to incorporate the entire family into our plan and took a lot of our fears away. We now are back to family dinners and regular check ins……getting back to basics.
“Working with Chris my son has learned to accept support. He has unlocked the ability to stop and redirect his own behavior even when he is engaged in defiance. Our home environment has become safe and cooperative because these changes effect each relationship in our family…...Thank you for your care and support ”
