When she was young, she often found herself interested in other people’s stories and wanting to discover why people navigate life in such different ways. This grew into a realization that she could make a positive impact in the lives of others, as well as herself, by better understanding the field of psychiatry.
Even before starting nursing school, Dr. Taylor was curious about psychiatry. The more she learned, the more enthusiastic she was to dive deeply into this field. As she progressed through nursing school, psychiatry was by far her favorite rotation, and she felt certain she could make a positive impact in the field. She is grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow in this specialty as a psychiatric nurse practitioner.
She does her best to work with her clients to create a treatment plan together. She believes each person has different goals, and her objective is to support her clients to reach their own individual goals.
Dr. Taylor enjoys continuing to learn about psychiatry and finds meaning in using her educational background and experience to support her clients in any way she can. She believes in lifelong learning and evidence-based medicine. She makes an effort to always keep up-to-date on best practices in psychiatry.

I am very pleased to be working with Happier Living. It is very helpful to have both my psychiatrist and psychologist in the same place. They are able to read each other’s notes. I believe this provides me with better care. The office staff is very good. Client Support handles my scheduling, billing and questions.
