Tranquilla Golden-Taylor is a Registered Marriage & Family Therapist Intern based in Central Florida. She has served the community in various roles over the past 10 years including juvenile probation, teaching, and therapy. Because of this, she has gained extensive insight and knowledge of the cracks in the system and how they can manifest in our individual lives and families. She strives to help clients relieve their stress and feel whole again. She specializes in parent-child relationships, anxiety, depression, and self-actualization. Her mission is to help individuals manifest the best version of themselves by challenging them to explore their past traumas and inner workings.
Mental health doesn’t have a name. Sometimes it’s subtle, but other times it can wreak havoc on our lives. Individual counseling is a safe space for you to divulge your most intimate thoughts and feelings in order to better manage life stressors, self-actualize, and cope with any mental health issues that may arise.
Tranquilla helps clients struggling with managing life transitions, stressors, work-life balance, self-love/esteem, trauma, depression, anxiety, and self-actualization. You’ll feel renewed as we work together to help you create your optimal life. Tranquilla will work with you to develop quality coping skills for mental health stressors and develop a greater sense of self by finding balance in your life without feeling constrained by your past.
Using Solution-Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems, Tranquilla will approach your concerns with care to help you find solutions as you work towards your breakthrough.
While we love our family, they can be a source of contention in our lives. Family therapy presents a safe space for each member to air their grievances, without blame-shifting, in order to resolve conflict and rebuild family ties. Some of the issues we tackle include:
Parental Conflict in Child Rearing
Establishing Positive and Negative Reward Systems
Gender Issues/Sexual Orientation Discovery
Empty Nest Syndrome
Caring for Parents and Disabled Family Members
Eradicating Generational Traumas
Tranquilla coaches families so everyone leaves feeling they’ve been seen and heard by their family members. Each client will develop a level of differentiation from the family by establishing boundaries, breaking generational traumas, and letting go of expectations.
Her primary family therapy model is Bowen’s Intergenerational Theory as it allows her to uncover unhealthy patterns from your family of origin that may have spilled over into your nuclear family. This revelation allows you to remove those expectations placed by your family of origin so you can re-write your narrative with your nuclear family to create a healthy, safe space for you and your loved ones. Tranquilla helps clients become aware of their individual and relational needs using The Gottman Institute as a framework to strengthen each person to elevate the relationship.
