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.

My office is located in within the Brookside Counseling office suite. We are conveniently located in Midtown Kansas City and accessible via public transportation. Additionally there are multiple restaurants and shops nearby.

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.
