Therapist, LPC, LSOTP, LCDC
Shawn Taylor’s professional career has spanned over 20 years as a Criminal Justice Investigator with the Houston Police Department, Career & Technology Educator with Spring ISD, and now as an independent Mental Health Practitioner. The common denominator among those battling life’s challenges in each of these professions is that most individuals are motivated at the core to find solutions to initiate behavioral and lifestyle changes, but most lack the logistical “know how” to effect permanent change within their lives.
As a psychotherapist, this is where Shawn employs his existential knowledge and skills to help individuals achieve wellness through the self-discovery process. A collaborative process based on the appropriate coaching and questions that assist one in delving into internal actionable steps—promoting self-insights to uncover the best solutions for life-altering outcomes.
