Dr. Taylor utilizes existential psychotherapy to provide treatment for individuals struggling with loss of identity. In 2015, he was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to serve on the Texas State Board of  Examiners of Professional Counselors as a professional member. In  2018, he was unanimously voted as Vice-Chair of the board and was reappointed to a second term in 2019 and is currently serving as a councilman on the Behavioral Health Executive Council.

Working with various state and private organizations such as Child  Protective Services since 2008, Dr. Taylor has experienced the lack of community support for broken homes in both urban and rural communities. In an endeavor to alleviate this issue, Dr. Taylor served  as the court coordinator and program developer for Legacy Family  Court in Dallas County from 2013 to 2016. In 2015, Legacy Family  Court was recognized as “An Agent of Change” by the Council on  Drug and Alcohol Abuse and was awarded an official resolution by  Dallas County. In 2016, the Agricultural Commissioner appointed Dr.  Taylor to serve on the Rural Health Task Force to assist in developing solutions for the expansion of mental health programs in rural Texas communities.

Dr. Taylor completed his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a  concentration in existentialism at Texas A&M University. He continues to research and write on the subject of identity and existential development.
