My Approach to Helping

***Currently accepting new clients! Weekend and evening appointments available.***

My name is Taylor Saunders and I believe in the potential of all people. I graduated from the University of Washington Tacoma with a Master of Social Work and with a passion for social justice. As a therapist, my own mental health journey inspired me to gain the experience needed to help others on their healing journey.

In my work with clients, I use evidence based-practices—meaning that I only use therapeutic modalities that have been proven to work both in a scientific and real-life setting. I encourage clients to ask questions about their therapy. I seek to provide an environment in which clients can heal and become empowered to take charge of their lives. An important component of my practice is being open to dialogue and feedback—not just giving it. I draw upon CBT, DBT, Intuitive Eating, and other progressive modalities in my work with clients.

Eating Disorders

The BOUNDLESS approach to eating disorders is rooted in body liberation. It is possible to find freedom with food without dieting or shrinking your body. Diet culture is a pervasive and oppressive problem in our society. It keeps people trapped in a cycle of restriction and bingeing—dominating our lives and limiting our potential. My approach is evidence-based and client centered. I approach the therapy experience as a collaborative experience that centers your unique and valid needs.

Autism

During my studies I was fortunate to become a Simon Family Endowment Fellow. This experience gave me a deeper understanding of working with and treating adults on the autism spectrum. I am a strong proponent of neurodiversity—the idea that autism is one of the many natural, valid, and incredible ways to have a brain. Additionally, I have worked with clients from many diverse backgrounds and strive to provide the most inclusive and validating environment in which to heal.

Inclusive and Affirming

BOUNDLESS Behavioral Health is committed to supporting people of all identities—regardless of body size, sexualgender orientation, legal status, ethnicracial background, religion, disability, neurotype, or other minority status.
