About Jason Taylor

The start of my education and professional journey began in Southern Utah working with adult populations struggling with substance use and addiction. This was followed up by working with adolescent clients in residential treatment settings focused on various mental health concerns. While finishing my Bachelor’s of Psychology at Southern Utah University I had the opportunity to work with individuals and families impacted by Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), and survivors of Sexual Assault (SA). While completing my Master’s of Social Work at the University of Utah, I worked with individuals across the lifespan impacted by depressive symptoms, anxiety, trauma, and various life transitions.

I utilize a person-centered approach to working alongside my clients, as they are the expert on their unique situation. I strive for an affirming therapeutic relationship that creates a safe and collaborative space to gain a deeper understanding of self. I seek to assist my client’s in empowering themselves toward navigating life as their authentic self. I enjoy utilizing mindfulness, emotion focused, trauma-informed, and narrative approaches to fit each client’s unique situation/needs.

Away from the office, I enjoy connecting with family, friends, and my two cats. I’m a passionate movie buff who also enjoys music, video games, various sports, cooking, and exploring the beautiful outdoors this area has to offer.
