My name is Taran McGowen. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor, wife and mom. I'm so honored that you're here and I can't wait to know you.
Licensed Professional Counselor in Irving, TX
I am EMDR trained and believe this form of therapy is powerful in helping clients to realize maladaptive thoughts while the brain heals itself and turns those "wrong" thoughts into adaptive ones.
My heart is to see couples thrive. In couples counseling, we address several topics including communication, sex, finances, infidelity, etc. There is an understanding that as the therapist, my only goal is for the relationship to be healthy.
It is my belief that our thoughts influence our behavior. So when there is a wrong thought, it can be addressed and processed, ultimately leading in healthier behaviors and habits.
Many people struggle with anxiety. In dealing with anxiety, I offer clients practical tips and interventions to use to help them remain calm. We also spend time deciphering negative self talk and its impact on anxious feelings.
