Ritasha Taylor, LCSW-S
Social Worker - Psychotherapist - Supervisor
I specialize in working with individuals whose thoughts or moods have created hurdles in their day-to-day life. My Solution Focused and Cognitive approaches help me to connect with children, adolescents and adults alike. My goal is to help people understand their thoughts/feelings better and plan for what they can control while learning what to do with the rest.

We offer an array of mental health counseling and coaching services to meet a variety of needs.
Ge the most out of life
Individualized Counseling can be one of the keys to a happier, healthier life. My goal is to help find you the tools and techniques to achieve a balanced and fulfilling life. After
several Counseling sessions, you will become well-versed at handling issues whenever and wherever they arise. Call now to schedule a session.
Guidance & Inspiration
Does your child seem to struggle with their anger, sadness or lack of motivation? Do you struggle to understand how or why your child is so irritable? We can help! Great communication and peace can exist in your home again! Our goal is to help parents and children recognize they are orbiting in different worlds, then help them do the work to really and truly understand one another. It's work but you, your child, your family and your sanity are worth it!
Mental Health Therapy
Embrace life's challenges
Sometimes, it seems as if life just has it in for us and we can never catch a break. In reality, there will always be moments we have little to no control over but, what we can always control is how we react to those moments. In these sessions, you’ll learn about acceptance and how to exert your power of choice over whatever life may throw at you while living with a Mental Health Diagnosis.
Parenting on Purpose
This team coaches new moms, repeat moms, grandparents, dad, uncles and anyone in a caregiving capacity on how to care for, plan for and respond to their innate desire to be more than 'good enough'. Parent Coaching empowers parents at whatever stage you finds yourself, to be intentional and purposeful in your efforts; whether it's sleep training, time-outs, curfews or video games, you can impact your child's present and future.
We work with school personnel and parents to advocate for the individualized needs of students whose day-to-day success could benefit from adaptations in their learning and social environments. We believe our purposeful interactions with others will nurture a culture of individual success and growth.
