Patti Wansley Taylor, MA, MS, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Oceanside
My goal is first to listen and fully understand your needs. Then I work side by side with you to develop the skills, tools and insights to achieve the changes you seek. I genuinely want you to succeed and will do my best to help you. I am a warm, caring and straightforward therapist who believes the process of therapy works best when it is collaborative and tailored to each individual. For some, the counseling process may seem intimidating. However, you will find it easy to make a positive connection here. I encourage you to take the step forward toward a solution.
In a confidential space, I will help you identify, explore and address what is not working in your relationship or life, create healthy goals and solutions, and increase behaviors that lead to positive outcomes. I work purposefully with couples and individuals who are struggling through tough times and want to experience something better.
Evening and weekend appointments are available. In addition to private sessions, I offer several small group therapy sessions in a comfortable office setting. To learn more about my practice, visit my website at: Please take advantage of the free 15-minute telephone consultation.
