My Approach

I practice under Louisiana Board of Supervisors of Social Work (LABSWE) license #2767 and am a member in good standing of this and several other professional organizations.

Please see my CV here.

I named my business “Strategies For Change” because I  believe that  decision-making is one of our greatest human powers.   Change may be forced upon us–the death of a loved one; an unwanted divorce– or  change may be something we desire but don’t know how to effect. This is the part of life I’m most excited by, and what I love helping people address.

My style is very much “therapy with a coaching edge,” to use Lynn Grodzki’s term. I’ll tell you what I think and why I think it, while I support you in your journey through change. I’ll work to make every hour you spend in my office productive. I want you to leave thinking, “Wow, I figured out how to make my next step!”

My husband is a clinical psychologist (Dr. Alan Taylor), and we’ve managed to work in the same office (under our separate businesses) for twenty years. (That’s made consulting to family-owned businesses another interest of mine.) We relax by gardening, dancing, and spending time with our family, friends, and dogs. Life is good.
