About Taylor Yong

Growing up, the concept of “mental health” was never taught to me. Going to therapy helped me understand myself better as a person and helped me let go of the pain that I was holding onto.

I became a clinician because I enjoy helping others find this same peace. During my career in the mental health field, I have worked in settings such as a residential facility, home-based care, community health outpatient, and telehealth. In addition to being a clinician with Higher Ground Wellness, I also work full-time in community mental health and part-time as a nursery coordinator. Reaching out and accepting help isn’t easy.

Thank you for considering me in your journey to better wellness.


Who do you primarily work with?

I work with individuals who are looking to heal their inner child, process their past, improve their interpersonal relationships, and with those who experienced their childhood with emotionally unavailable/immature parents. I work to address issues such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship conflicts, low self-esteem, life transitions, and the overwhelming pressure we put on ourselves.

A bit more about me

My loved ones would describe me as thoughtful, charismatic, passionate, and generous.

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my fiancé and my cats, Coco and Essie. I also like reading, traveling, tattooing, getting tarot card readings, and planning mildly spontaneous day trips. I currently live in Ohio, but am originally from the San Francisco East Bay Area of California.

To me, therapy is about improving our understanding of ourselves and learning new skills to handle what life throws at us. I believe that therapy can benefit anyone and everyone.

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet
voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow.”
