Marriage & Family Therapist -
Welcome 🙂 I’m Taryn Manuel, a heart-centered, compassionate, and authentic therapist.
My mission is to empower you to live a more fulfilling life – a life you are proud to lead. I am here to help you bring your best self to the forefront.
The space we share in session is always a space of trust and honest communication. I believe in collaboration – we are in this together. With me you are free to show up as you are without fear of judgement or criticism. I will help you find your inner voice and create catalysts for change that can improve your life on many fronts.In me you have an ally – I will be there to support you and hold space as you navigate through the healing process and enter into new stages of positive growth.
Self-care, self-compassion, and self acceptance are the core values incorporated in my work. I encourage people to engage in activities that bring them joy, develop space for inner-kindness, and practice new ways of being in the world.It is important to me that all my clients have a space to embrace who they are and to openly speak their truth.
Youth: My experience with expressive art, play therapy, and talk therapy is ideal to help youth heal and discover their authentic truth, while meeting them where their at.
Men: I create an environment in which you can find strength in vulnerability. I walk with you out of old, negative perceptions of your own masculinity and toward a new, vibrant realization of yourself as a man in the world. Women: I help you get in touch with your authentic anger and rage. I hold space for you to feel, to speak, and to move through mental and emotional blocks holding you back from being your full, true self.I am particularly sensitive to the needs of those in marginalized communities such as people of color, LGBTQ, and women.
You will not find judgement with me – only deep compassion. If you are committed to making a positive change in your life, I am here for you.
