What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

If you are reading this and thinking about working with me, you have to know this. I want you to be brave. More to the point, brave enough to journey with me and find the things that are hard to see about yourself. I am going to try to engage you in a way that gets to the deepest part of what is in your way. We will do hard, epic things together. I will roll up my sleeves and look hard with you to help you find the things you need them most. They are usually buried somewhere inside of you.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

So many answers to choose from on this one…..but I’d have to say the effect of psychological or emotional PAIN on person’s perspective is a dynamic that often gets in the way of finding the real truth or the honesty of a heart. Pain is a generator for fear and when we’ve been hurt, it only takes fear a hot second to become anger….or something worse. Something like numb… or cold. Instead of facing it, we tuck things away and doing that kills our clarity bit by bit and screws up our ability to fully know others and be known, love and be loved. If we want to be whole and free, we have to dive in…..because we can’t heal from things we won’t acknowledge. So a lot of my methodology deals with finding pain and getting it out of the way…finding a way to redeem it so we can get on with good living.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

I am not a guy who had an enduring curiosity about psychological work and decided to become a therapist just so I can help and make a contribution to humanity. My story has been much more personal and gritty than that. I have known what it means to bleed the ground red......to be at the end of a journey that seems like it should have killed you. So, to put it simply, I am influenced by the things I have learned in the thick of it all. I recall that a moment of wise counsel and companionship on a rough piece of trail is worth its weight in gold. I hope to be that.

Work History

Taff is a seasoned mental health clinician who’s career as a Licensed Professional Counselor started in 2006 in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains.  After working in Colorado for several years, Taff decided it was time to come back home to Texas where he could use his skills and heart to help the best people in the world.  A native of West Texas, Taff and his wife make their home in Cowtown.  Their two children are all grown up and getting on with their wonderful lives.  Taff’s aim is to provide extraordinary help for those times in life when it  counts the most.  He will engage you intensely to help you find your clearest mind, your best heart, your deepest honesty, your way out of  “stuck” places, and your path to the best version of yourself.  Taff uses a variety of tools and methods in his work and is very much a believer in the “whatever it takes” approach.  Additionally, he is a gifted motivational speaker and teacher. Taff has served  a broad spectrum of individuals during his career including pastors, ministry leaders, executives, entrepreneurs, olympic athletes, recording artists, news anchors, doctors, attorneys,  LGBT Individuals, mental health professionals, educators, school administrators, couples, families, teens, and children. Taff is particularly skilled at working with difficult marital and relational issues as well as complicated family dynamics. He offers powerful multi-day intensives for couples and families who need to dig deeper into problems and create significant movement more quickly than traditional weekly sessions would allow for. Taff’s office is conveniently located on the Southside of downtown Fort Worth. .
