Taylor Baker, LGMFT
I am a Licensed Graduate Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Maryland (License #LGM645). I attended the University of Maryland to earn my Bachelor’s Degree in Family Science and was fortunate enough to earn my Master’s Degree in Couple and Family Therapy there as well. In addition, I’m a trained facilitator of the PREPARE/ENRICH program, which helps couples better understand and strengthen their relationships in order to build a strong foundation for marriage.
My family has lived in the DMV area for generations. I take great pride in where I’m from because it has helped shape many of my best qualities, both personally and professionally. I’ve learned how to be my most patient and empathic self by living in a diverse community of people; constantly challenged to think outside my own perspective and privilege in life. As a person, my goal is to always keep growing. I strive to treat every day as a new opportunity to be more accepting, kind, and understanding to others.
As a therapist, my style is warm, authentic, and non-judgmental. I strive to provide my clients with a safe space that allows them to express themselves, where they feel appreciated and understood. I have clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families from a variety of different backgrounds. My work with couples employs empathy as a core part of the therapeutic experience, so that my clients feel validated and have the space to learn how to hear each other. The family therapy I offer has the same focus of building connections between parents and their children that allow the family to thrive as a whole. Therapy for many people is a journey toward a deeper understanding of themselves and their interpersonal relationships, but choosing to begin that journey can be difficult. My work with individuals focuses on empowering my clients to be agentive beings in their lives in order to achieve their goal in therapy. I see myself as a companion on my clients’ journey to self-compassion and awareness; no matter how rough the terrain is, we can work through it, together.
