Taylor Eudy, M.Ed, PLPC (she/her)
Mental Health Counseling
In a session, Taylor Eudy intentionally creates space for the client to process their authentic experiences. She uses methods from various evidenced-based practice theories to create meaningful and personalized treatment that targets areas for growth determined by the client. Taylor enjoys balancing eastern and western ideologies in treating the modern whole self. She is known for using humor in session, and strives to connect with her clients in a genuine way.
Outside of my own experience, because I definitely know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed, I find myself armed with a deep understanding of human emotion that I use to help others, as well as myself, navigate this life.
In her practice that incorporates cannabis into counseling, Taylor leans deeply into her education skills to provide clients with practical knowledge in how to navigate their own healing with cannabis. Using research-based counseling practices in combination with understandings of cannabis pharmacokinetics and cannabis science, Taylor provides a service that closes the gap between being prescribed medical marijuana and feeling desirable results.
Cannabis may not be for everyone, and I believe I have the necessary education and experience to assist a person in safely figuring out if that is true. While a physician has determined that a patient may benefit from cannabis, that same physician does not likely know how or have the time to guide that patient through cannabis treatment. They aren’t going to sit with them and consider 40 different strains, hundreds of products with insufficient directions, or how/when to use those products to best target their needs. I am uniquely qualified to do just that, and much more. In my opinion, it is irresponsible for me to not provide this service when the number of Missouri Medical patients is in the hundreds of thousands. Who is teaching them how to use their medicine safely?
“I enjoy working with emotional problems such as anxiety, depression, and mood disorders. I also find that I have a knack for working with people with identity issues- like self esteem, finding one’s purpose, assessing personality, and knowing/loving oneself. I enjoy helping people through life stress and tough changes, and feel specifically drawn to artists and creative types of people. I work well with musicians and performing artists, and can even help people navigate career changes and vocational issues. Basically, if you are an adult human and life is just hard right now, I feel you, I see you, and I want to help you navigate to the better season of life to come.”
