Anchor Counseling and Consulting services, LLC

Mental Health Service in Kansas City

Providing sound, evidence-based, trauma-sensitive therapy with an emphasis on the unique mental health concerns of African Americans, people of color, and LGBTQIA individuals.

Taryn specializes in trauma-focused care, paying special attention to how trauma affects our ability to function in the world. I help clients develop healthy coping skills and create a renewed sense of personal safety.

I’ve worked with clients from all walks of life. Therefore it’s a priority to acknowledge and affirm the role a client's cultural background plays in the therapeutic process. It is also important to recognize the affect trauma has on people. I strive to promote healing from traumatic experiences. I do this by collaborating with clients because I believe they are the true experts in themselves. My treatment approach is eclectic in nature as I utilize methods from multiple treatment modalities including CBT, DBT, person-centered and brief, solutions-focused therapy.

Welcome to my practice. I am so glad to have you here.

Now Offering TeleTherapy

In an effort to promote social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am now offering sessions online. Please be advised that going forward, all sessions will be conducted via a HIPAA compliant video chat application. I know these are difficult times, and we must continue to take care of our mental health. I hope that you will find this alternative to face-to-face therapy convenient and helpful.
