About Taegan Elmer
I recognize the courage it takes for you to be here. In my own healing journey, I have found a combination of self-compassion, mindfulness, and exploration of limiting beliefs and behaviors to be the most helpful in reconnecting with a sense of wholeness and authenticity. I use warmth, compassion, and gentle directness in my approach with others. I take an integrative and collaborative approach to therapy, which means we will decide together the goals and direction you wish to take.
I am passionate about helping clients reengage in their lives from a place of authenticity and strength. Together, we will cultivate a greater capacity to practice self-compassion, courage, and acceptance. My hope is to support you in cultivating more meaningful connection, reconnecting with a sense of meaning and purpose, and living braver with your life.
I began my career working with nationally recognized experts at The Meadows, a renowned inpatient center specializing in trauma and addiction recovery. There, I worked with clients struggling with substance abuse, compulsive behaviors, combat-related trauma, moral injury, sexual abuse, depression, anxiety, and family of origin issues. I enjoy working with diverse clientele and I am LGBTQ+ inclusive and informed. My emphasis has been working with young professionals, helping-professionals in early phases of their career, and young and middle-aged adults.
