We Believe in Professional, Affordable Care

Taylor Counseling Group provides affordable, reliable, and accessible mental health services to communities across Texas.

We believe that everyone should have access to premium mental healthcare, regardless of income level. With twelve locations in Texas and plans for rapid growth, we serve clients from age five through late adulthood. Our services range from traditional individual counseling to couples counseling, to family therapy, and more, and believe that each session should be at a cost you can afford. We are proud to offer a standard private rate at $90 per session, whereas many practices charge $150 or more for therapy of our caliber. Getting the help you need shouldn’t be complicated, so we make scheduling an appointment easy with our online booking tool.

Taylor Counseling Group is a value-driven organization that believes in the power of community support. We are proud to donate $1 from every session to Okay to Say, an award-winning public awareness campaign that strives to break the stigma behind asking for help, encourages people to talk openly about mental health, and communicates that most mental illnesses are treatable.

About Our Founder

Dr. Christopher S. Taylor

Christopher S. Taylor, Ph.D. LPC-S, author of My Digital Practice and host of the For Self-Examination podcast, founder of Taylor Counseling Group, Texas Mental Health Solutions, the Counseling for the Future Foundation, and co-founder of the Empifany App is an adjunct professor of counseling ethics at Dallas Theological Seminary and Amberton University.

Dr. Taylor utilizes existential psychotherapy to provide treatment for individuals struggling with loss of identity. In 2015, he was appointed by Governor Greg Abbott to serve on the Texas State Board of  Examiners of Professional Counselors as a professional member. In  2018, he was unanimously voted as Vice-Chair of the board and was reappointed to a second term in 2019 and is currently serving as a councilman on the Behavioral Health Executive Council.

Working with various state and private organizations such as Child  Protective Services since 2008, Dr. Taylor has experienced the lack of community support for broken homes in both urban and rural communities. In an endeavor to alleviate this issue, Dr. Taylor served  as the court coordinator and program developer for Legacy Family  Court in Dallas County from 2013 to 2016. In 2015, Legacy Family  Court was recognized as “An Agent of Change” by the Council on  Drug and Alcohol Abuse and was awarded an official resolution by  Dallas County. In 2016, the Agricultural Commissioner appointed Dr.  Taylor to serve on the Rural Health Task Force to assist in developing solutions for the expansion of mental health programs in rural Texas communities.

Dr. Taylor completed his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy with a  concentration in existentialism at Texas A&M University. He continues to research and write on the subject of identity and existential development.
