Insight from A Black Male Therapist
When it comes to supporting African American men and mental health stressors, John G. Taylor is that guy!
He’s an Adjunct Professor at LaSalle University and a Licensed Professional Counselor providing therapy for individuals, couples and families around issues of family violence, depression, anger and ADHD. He also conducts a workshop called The Unspoken Language; The Art of Counseling African American Men.
Taylor’s therapy work specializes in working with individuals and couples to heal their emotional wounds. He has insight with the role race class, gender, sexuality and religion have in peoples lives. As a Contributor for Healthy Black Men, Taylor will bring his expertise to uplift and inform Black men and their allies on clinical issues that may be holding them back.
As the creator of an original workshop “The Unspoken Language: The Art of Counseling African American Men“, Mr. Taylor is able to connect with community leaders, therapists, clergy, social workers and others to work with African American Men. This workshop focuses on the six reasons African American Men seek therapy and the five systems of potential failure in the lives of many African American Men. The goal is to instill hope and behavior change.
Mr. Taylor received his Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from Fayetteville State University and his Masters Degree in Christian Counseling from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, which allows him to integrate Theology with Psychology. He also has experience in the Criminal Justice System in North Carolina, working as Correctional Officer, Probation Officer and Domestic Violence Counselor in the court system.
Healthy Black Men is proud to welcome Mr. John Taylor to our team.
