“A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.”

About Jason Taylor
My professional journey began in Southern Utah working with adults addressing their relationship with substance use. I followed that opportunity by working in residential settings with adolescent clients with various mental and behavioral health struggles. During the completion of my Bachelor’s of Psychology at Southern Utah University, I had the opportunity to serve as a victim advocate for individuals and families impacted by intimate partner violence, and survivors of sexual assault. While completing my Master’s of Social Work at the University of Utah, I worked with individuals across the lifespan and further developed my ability to support individuals impacted by my areas of specialization.
Today with Red Willow, I utilize a person-centered approach where I hope to meet my clients wherever they find themselves on their journey. I believe my clients are the experts in their own situation. I hope to provide an affirming therapeutic relationship that creates a safe, brave, and collaborative space to assist clients in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves. I work to assist my client’s in gaining the tools and understanding to better connect with their empowered and authentic self to best navigate their lives. My therapeutic approach includes the use of mindfulness-based, trauma-informed, and empowerment approaches to fit each client’s identified needs.
I particularly enjoy working with clients who have been impacted by chronic health & pain issues, life & faith transitions, and survivors of intimate partner & family violence. I feel my own lived experience with my areas of specialty improves the therapeutic space I am able to offer my clients. I hope to offer my clients a safe, open, and understanding space that was crucial in my own journey of self-exploration, transformation, and healing.
Away from the office, I’m frequently with those I consider family, and loving on my two feline children. I enjoy connecting with others through the love of movies, music, great food, and hot caffeinated beverages. I also enjoy getting my body moving through the practice of yoga, various sports, and exploring the beautiful outdoors this area has to offer.
