Taimyr Strachan

Marriage & Family Specialist

Ph.D., LMFT

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process and should be unique to each client and their needs. My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe and open environment in which clients can explore the narratives of their lives and become empowered to challenge ideals that keep them stuck in self-defeating patterns of behavior.  I provide psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and family systems. I also specialize in working with and improving the mental health of minority and marginalized emerging adults, specifically within our Black and LGBTQIA+ community members. I pride myself on being an ally and advocate so I can help you work towards the life you want.
