Get to Know Taylor

My name is Taylor Dautaj, M.A., LPC. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Owner of Oasis Springs Children's Counseling. Since 2016, I have been working extensively with caregivers and children to work through the challenges that keep them from living their happiest life. In 2020, I began the process of completing additional training in play therapy in order to better serve the children and families that I work with.

 

I utilize play-based interventions to help children change unhelpful thoughts and behaviors in a playful, 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.
