Get to Know Taylor

My name is Taylor Dautaj (pronouced dOW-tie), M.A., LPC, RPT. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Owner of Oasis Springs Children's Counseling, and Registered Play Therapist. Since 2016, I have been working extensively with caregivers and children to navigate the challenges that keep them from living their happiest life. In 2023, I completed two and a half years of training in play therapy to earn the title of Registered Play Therapist.


I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy to help children change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in a fun and evidence-based package. I understand how upsetting and confusing it can be to see the child you love struggle with their emotions, make poor choices, and not connect well with others. I am here to support you and your child in their journey to wellness.
