Who We Are

Aiysha Taylor, LCSW- C


My key to years of effectiveness in successfully helping clients reach their goals is simple...build a trusting, caring relationship based on respect and support. I'll take the time to truly get to know you, your child, or your family while we work together to create your unique client-centered plan.  In addition to years of education and training, I also have priceless life experience. I have lived through and overcome many obstacles. And I won't suggest or recommend any intervention that I wouldn't try, haven't used myself, or wouldn't recommend to my own family and friends. 





Centering, and


Ourselves with


Are you Anchored?

My client's always leave our experience together with a better understanding of themselves and what they require in this life to be their best and live their best. 

Do you know who you are?  Do you know what you need?  And do you know how to get it?

My Promise to you and to myself


I promise to always treat you like an individual. My support will never be generic. Each experience will be designed only for you. 


Going to Aiysha is one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself. At the time, I was dealing with a lot of anxiety and anger management issues. I was also confused about a lot of different aspects of my life. Aiysha gave me the tools I needed to be the best version of myself. I was able to resolve/manage my anxiety and anger. She helped me to became a better communicator and learn how to have more empathy and understanding of other people’s perspectives (not just my own!).

Every aspect of my life benefited; my relationships with my boyfriend, family and friends, my job, my relationship with myself- everything.

Aiysha is extremely easy to talk to, trustworthy and non-judgmental.  I can’t imagine what my life would be like, or who I would be if I had never gone to her. I know for sure that across the board, everything in my life is better because of this therapy. If you are considering going to therapy, I would 100% recommend that you schedule an appointment with Aiysha!  

 Aiysha Taylor has managed to do the impossible- in my time with her she was able to balance validation and support with problem-solving and growth. Its incredibly hard to both entirely understand and accept an individual while also challenging them to understand and accept themselves. In the midst of intense depression and anxiety, both as a teenager and a young adult, Aiysha helped me find the feelings of positivity within myself that I was sure I would never have. Every session, I felt a little more resolved, a little more listened to, but best of all, I always felt a little more sure on how to move forward. At times when I was positive I would never make it through life, Aiysha at least helped me make it through the days in between our sessions. Before I knew it, I was more healed than I ever hoped to have been.

 I've known Aiysha Taylor since high school 2014. She is by far one of the most special people who holds a place in my heart. Her work and dedication to help people shows brightly. Ms Taylor has helped me emotionally and mentally thought out high school  in so many ways . She encouraged me to study hard and continue succeeding in my classes giving me hope that I didn't know existed . Thank you
