An Integrative Model for Wellness
The Psychotherapy Practice of

Emphasis in Depth Psychology and Somatic Awareness
My Approach to Therapy
Transformation is always possible when one reaches out to the world!
I currently work as a Jungian Psychotherapist integrating Somatic Psychology and Mindfulness into my clinical work. An ongoing focus in my practice is the mind AND body, and I have been successful in treating anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and trauma. I express unconditional positive regard for all of my clients and approach therapy with genuine curiosity.
I utilize a much different approach than most therapists and have created a formula to listen in an entirely new way, leaving assumptions and agendas out the door. In using a phenomenological approach, I am a responsive, reflexive, and embodied counselor that allows for the performative aspect of the body to enter the therapeutic space. I work with the unconscious as an experience, rather than a thing and view the unconscious as performing all the time. In working together, my clients and I can begin to notice any archetypal patterns that are active, and dialogue with the mythical figures that enter into the room because healing lies within fantasy and imagery.
I believe the therapy room can be a container for clients to explore their perceptions of the world around them and through this exchange, healing is made possible. When we are present with ourselves and for others creativity can blossom at its finest. This is the art form of therapy.

About Taylor Barnett
Taylor earned her Bachelors degree from Colorado State University, and while living in Fort Collins she developed a love for the outdoors. When school finished, Taylor decided to move to an island in Alaska where she taught 7th and 8th grade, and gained knowledge of how nature can assist students in their mental, physical, and emotional growth.
On the island, she voluntarily created and implemented daily outdoor workshops for kids belonging to the Tlingit and Haida Tribe. Working on the island created a powerful setting, and allowed Taylor to connect to herself and others, and laid the foundation for how she wanted to contribute to the rest of the world.
She later spent three more years living in Australia, Massachusetts, and Idaho, and immersed herself in the powerful healing opportunities that nature provides. Over those years she felt drawn to the deeply intimate, interpersonal work that occurred with adolescents, adults, and families and in 2015 Taylor enrolled at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Her clinical background includes working at Windhorse Integrative Mental Health, Family Care Network, and the Women’s Shelter in San Luis Obispo, California. Taylor now works with couples, families, and individuals of all ages at her Private Practice In Seattle, Washington. When she's not at work, she enjoys exploring all that the PNW has to offer!
It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between mind and body that have decided to be whole.

That discomfort you are feeling?
It is a sign that it is time to grow. To level up. To shift towards something BIGGER!
Is now the time to start therapy?
Do you often.....
If you answered yes to any of the above questions then it is time you start your therapeutic journey.....
Did you know that symptoms have the ability to guide you deeper into parts of your life that you may have never accessed before?
At the heart of every disorder, whether it compulsive eating, anxiety, addiction, or depression, there is a cry from the deepest part of our souls that must be heard. It is a cry to awaken, to embrace our whole selves....It is a cry to deepen our understanding of who we really are. It is a longing to know ourselves in mind, body, and spirit." (Normandi and Roark)
Maybe these symptoms aren't just external problems, but possible clues to what is going on psychologically. Don't remain stuck! Whatever challenges you are faced with, you have the ability to be transformed and changed, for the better.
"There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don’t you?” ~Rumi

Heal yourself first
I welcome clients diverse in age, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and gender identity. My role as a therapist is to help the client navigate the rough waters of their own life. With my training and expertise I am competent in exploring any of these issues:
In doing therapy together, we can unveil the mysteries that lie within you, and bring adventure back into the mundane life you may be leading. Our work together can be short-term and solution-focused, or longer-term depending on your needs.
Some of the families I work with struggle with conflict resolution or disagreements and come to therapy to process the frustrations; while also gaining skills to make real change for themselves and their family. Some of the issues I help families with include:
Whatever the issue may be, Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool to shift your family system for the better. As your therapist, I will utilize Family System Theory to help your family create a healthy equilibrium of peace and comfort.
Power of connection through Ritual
The Rite of Passage Group is a 12-week teen process group that is led with mastery and skill and incorporates ritual, art, and mindfulness. This group allows teens the space to explore their true self and provides them with opportunity to finally be seen and heard like never before. Some of the topics unpacked in this group are:
Group therapy offers unique connection and support that is unlike anything else.There is an excellent balance of psychoeducation, self discovery and connection that always happens in this group setting.
Healing Through Connection
Couples see me for a multitude of reasons. Sometimes the couple might be struggling with communication and conflict resolution; while other times couples may just want to strengthen the foundation they have already created. Whatever the issue may be, Taylor uses her training to address the following issues:
Therapy can act as a space for couples to share their world and specifically, what it is like to live their life. I work with couples in all stages of relationship, and I welcome clients diverse in age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and more.
