Erin Taylor, LCSW
Hi! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Houston, Texas. My educational background includes a bachelor's degree in social work from the University of Houston Clear Lake (2009) and a master's degree in social work from the University of Houston (2010). I completed my post-master’s supervision and acquired my clinical license in 2014. I specialize in providing support to adult individuals dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, trauma, and life changes.
I began my professional career in 2009 at a sober living facility, co-facilitating group therapy for women with substance abuse issues. In 2011, I transitioned to a therapist role at a partial hospitalization program and later became the clinical director. In this capacity, I provided group and individual therapy for adults with chronic mental health conditions, supervised a team of therapists, and designed programs to meet client needs. During that time, I received training in various therapeutic modalities, including dialectical behavioral therapy, somatic therapy, and equine assisted psychotherapy. In 2016, I shifted my focus to working with individuals in nursing homes and assisted living centers, assisting them with mental health, pain management, and adapting to major life changes. In 2020, I started working in private practice and established Second Arrow Counseling in early 2022.
I am dedicated to my own personal and professional growth and development. I am consistently pursuing additional training to enhance my skills. I read books, listen to podcasts, and explore relevant articles to deepen my understanding of the human experience. I remain passionate about my work and look forward to the continued journey of making a positive difference in the lives of those I work with.
Outside the office, I am a macro photography enthusiast with an interest in entomology and arachnology. I enjoy spending time with my children, playing old school Nintendo games, and staying on top of tech and science news.
