Deb Taylor


A Michigan Limited Licensed Psychologist may practice under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist. My supervisor is Dave Thornsen, Psy.D.

Life struggles can feel like insurmountable burdens and our best efforts may not move us in the direction we want to go. During these difficult times, the support and collaboration of a knowledgeable professional, with lived experience, may give us the boost we need to move forward, find meaning, and be an active part in the process of creating a life we value.

I am a Limited License Psychologist with over 25 years of experience supporting people during times of struggle. I believe in cultivating an authentic and collaborative relationship with others while helping them move towards their defined goals. I graduated with honors from Western Michigan University in 1999 with a master’s degree in counseling psychology and have since devoted my career to assisting people with concerns related to adjustments, depression, anxiety, chronic mental illness, pain management, managing and regulating difficult emotions, interpersonal communication and managing duress. I prioritize best-practice treatment approaches and am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, pain management using stress reduction, and mindfulness. I am trauma-informed and value safe spaces within the counseling relationship. I use ongoing education to keep myself informed of promising new practices. I look forward to being a part of your process to create a life you value.

“I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.”

— Maya Angelou

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

— Carl Rogers
