Taylor Vest, LPC-Intern Supervised by Karen Burke, LPC-S, RPT-S

Hi there! My name is Taylor and I am excited that you are here! The counseling process is not an easy journey and I applaud your bravery and courage for taking that difficult first step by reaching out.

I will never start a therapy session with an agenda or script. Rather, I operate intuitively and believe that clients should be in the “drivers’ seat” guiding the session. My main goal as a clinician is to be a reliable support and sounding board for you to be able to clearly hear your true self. It is also my duty to assist you in navigating through an array of life concerns, which may or may not include: major life transitions, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma, multicultural issues, self-esteem issues, stress, blocks/fears, and self-growth. I consider it an honor to walk with you through your darkest times as well as your greatest!

I graduated from Texas A&M University (Whoop!) in 2016 with a B.A. in Psychology. 3 years later, I graduated from St. Mary’s University – San Antonio with a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have also received extensive training in the following areas: Sandtray Therapy, Trauma Informed-Care, and Personality Disorders. Over the years I have worked in various work environments including a psychiatric hospital, a residential treatment center for teen girls, and volunteered at a Crisis Helpline for college students. I have a diverse skill set which has been shaped by my previous work experiences and I look forward to sharing these skills with you. My areas of expertise include working with individuals (pre-teens, teens, and adults), groups, and couples.   

Throughout my clinical experience, I have learned that most clients already have the answers that they are searching for and it is my job to create a safe and healing environment for you to discover those answers. I absolutely love what I do because of all the unique and wonderful clients I have the pleasure of working with. 

I encourage you to come exactly as you are. Judgement is something you will never find during a session with me. Rather, you will find respect, empathy, support, honesty, new perspectives, and humor! You matter, your story matters, and I am here to walk alongside you every step of the way!
