Taylor Allesch

Licensed Professional Counselor

Session Fee: $160.00

Starting counseling can be difficult – having had anxiety for most of my life I know that feeling first hand and starting sex counseling can be even more nerve racking. For something that should be a uniting experience, the topic of sex may cause division and can be a source of shame, anxiety, discomfort and pain for many of us. My goal is to make this counseling experience – whether it be your first or 50th – a positive, meaningful experience with true connection and care. In session, I value the strengths you bring, and what you have already overcome. I will respect your autonomy and encourage you in the therapeutic process as well as learn and appreciate your story and strengths.

I am experienced in working with all people who are struggling with a host of concerns. Whether you and your partner need help with communication or sexual desire discrepancies, you’re a young adult and struggling for the first time with anxiety and depression, or a teen who has experienced trauma and wants a safe place to talk, I am here to help you process all of that and more. Being trained in EMDR, I work especially well with trauma survivors and those experiencing out of control sexual behavior. These experiences, can cause you to feel scared, isolated, and alone. Through our counseling relationship, I want to make a space where together we can process these concerns and come out feeling safer and more connected with yourself and the world around you. I also highly value the mind-body connection, and believe that our physical and mental wellness are intrinsically linked.

For every client, my goal is to create an affirming, safe and non-judgemental environment in which we can fully explore any and all topics without stigma or shame hindering progress.
