Healing from life's difficulties is possible. I am Dr. Lori Taylor, a registered psychologist who sees clients from BC via my online-only practice. I might be the right therapist for you if:
You have a history of difficult life experiences and want to grieve the related losses, understand the impacts on your life, develop self-compassion, and gain freedom to make choices based on your values in the present rather than on conditioning from the past.
You are a therapist and would like to participate in psychotherapy to further your personal growth, as well as to become a better therapist.
You have experienced losses due to death, chronic health & pain conditions, relationships ending, aging, infertility, and other situations of transition/change which you need to grieve and learn how to manage.
You have a history of childhood neglect, unmet needs, or emotional, physical, or sexual abuse—or grew up in a family where adults were self-absorbed due to addictions, relationship problems, or other stressors—and want to understand and work through the impacts of these experiences on your life.
You are judging yourself, feeling anxious, having challenges in your relationships, experiencing low mood or irritability, or engaging in behaviors you would like to stop.
You are an individual from a group that is often oppressed or pre-judged, and you would like a client-therapist relationship in which you can feel comfortable being open about all aspects of your life and self.
You are struggling with existential issues such as death anxiety, searching for meaning, or dealing with uncertainty, unfairness, and powerlessness.
You are finding life confusing or overwhelming and would like help making sense of it all and figuring out how to cope and feel better. You would like to experience more joy, contentment, and gratitude.
I provide online individual psychotherapy to adults in 50-minute sessions. I have over 30 years of experience as a registered psychologist.
My aim is to bring my full attention and calm presence to sessions; to provide you with validation, compassion, and feelings of safety; to be organized, reliable, and ethical; and to offer you honest, direct feedback.
My hope is that we can create a strong supportive therapeutic relationship, and that this will also lead to benefits in your relationship with your self and with others.
I believe that if we are open and curious, we will discover that even the most confusing behaviors have a positive intention at some level. For instance, many symptoms arise as attempts to avoid painful feelings, to feel in control, or to meet unmet needs. When the symptoms themselves get out of control, however, we need to find other ways to take care of ourselves.
My fee can be claimed as a medical expense on your income taxes, and may be covered by your extended health plan.
If you think my services might be a good match for your needs, please email me and I will arrange a free 15-minute phone consultation.
