Taylor Zaun received a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Mercy University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Iowa State University where she played collegiate volleyball for the Cyclones. She has a license in Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT). Taylor has worked in agency and private practice settings where she has experience providing services to individuals, couples and families of all ages and walks of life.
Taylor is passionate about working with children (8+), teens, young adults and families who come to therapy for a variety of reasons. She understands that each person’s journey is unique, and she has been trained in a variety of therapy modalities to provide the best services possible for the client’s individual needs. Taylor applies a systemic perspective in which she considers how the presenting concerns may impact the entire family system and implements this into the treatment planning process.

It is through meaningful connection and the ability for one to feel heard, understood, accepted and loved that change is possible. Life can be challenging, and sometimes it takes new ideas and perspectives to feel empowered to continue on in the journey towards healing. My goal as a therapist is to provide an open and understanding environment where clients feel safe to explore their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. It is through my own personal experiences that I have become passionate about working with others, and I would consider it a joy to be a small part of the journey you and your child/family are on.
In my free time, I enjoy my family and friends and getting involved with church activities. I love all things sports related whether it is playing, coaching or watching. I can often be found scouting out a local coffee shop, reading, or cooking my way through a new cookbook. Nothing in life delights me more than a cup of coffee and a good conversation.
