Dr. Jackson Taylor
Dr. Jackson Taylor is a clinical psychologist who provides psychotherapy and psychological testing for children and adults. A New Yorker at heart, he graduated summa cum laude from NYU with a B.S. in Applied Psychology in 2011 and went on to complete a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Adelphi University in 2016. Although his current practice spans the mental health spectrum, he has specialized training in therapy for severe trauma and personality pathology as well as extensive experience in treating other helping professionals, creatives, and the military community. In addition to clinical practice, Dr. Taylor also teaches a graduate course in the Leadership Education and Development program in partnership with USNA and GWU.
During doctoral training, Dr. Taylor trained in a variety of settings including the Bellevue/NYU Program for Survivors of Torture, the Mount Sinai Hospital World Trade Center Mental Health Program, the Beth Israel Medical Center (Inpatient Psychiatry), and the Naval Medical Center in Portsmouth, VA. Drawing upon decades of psychotherapy research at the Brief Psychotherapy Research Program and supported in part by grants from Psi Chi (the International Honor Society in Psychology), his doctoral research examined the negotiation of cultural identities and other aspects of the therapy relationship. As a graduate student, he also worked as the editorial assistant for Psychotherapy Research journal. He was selected for the Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program, the APA Division of Psychoanalysis Graduate Student Scholarship, and the Contemporary Freudian Society Fellowship.
A former collegiate athlete, Dr. Taylor is a member of the Federal Triangles Soccer Club. He also enjoys running, reading, and the arts. His outlook on life is informed by his travels and lived experience abroad, including a summer as a volunteer teacher in Hungary and Slovakia as well as two years living and working in Japan.
