East End and North Hills Offices

I am a licensed therapist who believes in an empowering, and empathic therapeutic relationship in which growth can occur. I strive to honor the difficult work that my clients experience while also providing honest, straightforward insight.

My belief is that you don’t exist in the world without being impacted by your most intimate relationships. Your relationships with your partner/ significant other, family, friends, co-workers and neighbors influence your individual experience. My hope is to help you navigate those relationships while also helping you to identify your role in creating your own experience.

Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy

Preferred Pronoun: She/Her/Hers

My philosophy is, you must honestly know yourself in relationships to identify yourself as an individual.  There are no individuals in the world, only fragments of families trying to express themselves. I guide you through a transformative journey by using active listening, powerful questions, mindfulness, and building a safe space. My goal in therapy is to help you discover your authentic voice through the exploration of self.

Preferred Pronoun: He/Him/They/Them

In therapy we will cultivate, explore, and direct that change, working together to promote more authentic and satisfying ways of living.

Ashley Taylor, M.Ed, MT-BC

Marriage and Family Therapy Resident

Preferred Pronoun: She/Her/Hers

My approach to therapy centers around the belief that we all hold an innate capacity for connection and creativity within us. These deep and powerful forces are often overwhelmed and wounded by the systems in which we exist, including our relationships. During our work together, we will collaboratively deconstruct and gain a deeper understanding of our situation within these systems and relationships, moving towards more authentic and liberating ways of being with Self and others. As a board-certified music therapist, I also believe that the creative arts are always welcome to join us in your journey of growth and change.

Pronouns They/Them/Theirs

My approach to therapy starts in recognizing that somewhere within us, every human being holds the power and strength to live a life of joy and connection. Every person encounters significant obstacles to this along the way—obstacles in our families and relationships, in our physical health, and in our lived experiences with the larger social and ecological systems around us.

Pronouns: She, Her, Hers

I view the therapeutic relationship as a significant element of change and will collaborate with you in a respectful, open, empathetic, and supportive manner. My approach to therapy is about seeing you as a complex, whole, unique individual who is much more than a list of symptoms. During our work together, you can expect to be encouraged to unpack your story and challenged to lean into your emotions to grow into your authentic self.

Jessica Trent, LMFT

Jessica Trent, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Preferred Pronoun: She/Her
East End Office

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist who is a firm believer in family and the relationships that form therein. From mothers and fathers, to complete strangers that somehow manage to solidify the need for their presence in our lives, the concept of family and friend is ever changing. My hope is that together we can map out and navigate what family and friendship mean to you and work to understand how our past and present relationships influence who we are, where we come from, where we’re headed and how we view the world around us.
