I view therapy as a collaborative journey, a shared exploration where healing and growth can flourish. My clinical approach is flexible and personalized, as I firmly believe that tailoring therapy to the unique needs of each client is the path to positive change.

Creating a safe and non-judgmental space is at the heart of my practice. I understand that it’s within this nurturing environment that true transformation can take place. My commitment to my clients is unwavering as we work together to heal and evolve in their lives and relationships.

My primary goal is to equip clients with healthy coping skills and empower them to make positive changes in their thoughts and behaviors.

In my therapeutic approach, I draw from the wisdom of cognitive-behavioral therapy and person-centered techniques. This amalgamation allows me to adapt and tailor therapy to suit the unique needs of each client.

I specialize in supporting clients navigating life transitions, those who might be feeling ‘stuck,’ anxious about change, or individuals adjusting to new chapters in their lives.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.” – Carl Rogers

My ultimate aim is to guide clients towards embracing self-acceptance, understanding that it’s through this acceptance that profound and lasting change can truly unfold.

I started visiting the wellness group a few years ago when I was really at a low point. Looking back, I didn’t even know who I was! Over the years, the girls here have helped me find a way to not only figure out what was holding me back, but how to really just wake up with the confidence I never thought possible. Please take my words and hear me out, this is THE place !!! The fact that I never had to feel alone on my path to where I needed to be, was more than I could ask for 🙂

I highly recommend this group to anyone. Taylor is an amazing therapist, she is patient, supportive and a great listener. She has changed my outlook on life for the better!

~ Client

My therapist is absolutely amazing. They’re the best therapist I’ve ever had and they always listen to what i have to say and have helpful coping mechanisms for me to try, many of which have improved my mental health tremendously. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist.

~ Client

Dr. Politis helped my oldest daughter during a difficult divorce and I could not be more grateful. She truly cares and relates to adolescents and young adults. Her office staff were communicative with scheduling and insurance which was very helpful. She is one of the only therapy offices that accepts insurance and handles it for you. In the past I always had to submit myself. The other therapists that work there are great too-very warm and well trained.
