Valerie Taylor, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Ann Arbor
Though often painful, problems have a way of providing us with an opportunity for growth. We may wonder why we canít find a partner, why our work feels so unsatisfying, why we compulsively seek the comfort of alcohol or food, or why our lives feel so meaningless. We may feel tired of replaying the past. Or we may simply feel overwhelmed living in a disconnected society where many people are marginalized. I specialize in eating/body image issues, pregnancy and post-partum concerns, relationships, parenting, life transitions, grief & loss, depression & anxiety, and identity struggles (gender, class, sexuality, ethnicity).
In therapy, we work together to create lasting change and develop healthier coping mechanisms; to unravel your story and make sense of unhealthy patterns; to mourn losses, be they related to death, childhood, or social injustice; and to begin to live life fully and in the present moment.
I bring compassion, curiosity, and a sense of humor to the hard work of healing, and am interested in the totality of the self: mind, body, emotions, and spirit. I truly value helping clients find a good therapist match, even if I don't fit the bill.
