Mental health issues are more in the news every day. With that in mind, Beverly Taylor, LMFT, has announced the establishment of a multi-disciplinary healing center in the Santa Ynez Valley. 

Taylor has 20 years in the relational, trauma and addiction treatment field here on the Central Coast. 

The Family Counseling and Trauma Healing Center is a result of Taylor realizing there was not a comprehensive healing center that encompassed the services of residential treatment at an affordable price in a day program.

After exploring the various facilities around the country, she noticed a gap in services for affordable, effective day treatment for PTSD, depression, anxiety, loss, addiction and disordered eating.  

“FCTHC offers an exceptional level of care, healing and hope,” Taylor said. “Trauma is often the root cause of many problems we see today.”

FCTHC’s staff of local professionals provides a well-planned intensive day treatment program designed for a client’s individual needs. The program offers two to five days per week for a minimum of four weeks. Included in the program are individual and trauma therapy, group acupuncture, art therapy, yoga therapy, coaching, mindfulness meditation, group and family therapy. Customization insures being able to provide the most effective treatment plan for the client’s individual situation.

Taylor’s experience as a marriage and family therapist (LMFT) and certified EMDR trauma therapist qualifies her to build a supportive environment using a variety of experiential therapies with the assistance of the expert staff.  

“There is so much unmet need right now,” Taylor said. “I am honored to be able offer deeper and integrative healing to those who seek it.”
