Dr. Taylor Clark - Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology

Evolution Counseling Services, LLC.

Born and raised in Blair County, Taylor developed a passion for helping individuals in our rural community, and became determined that she would be a Clinical Psychologist one day. Taylor completed her Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology through Mount Aloysius College in 2015, with specializations in counseling, expressive arts for healing, studio art, and criminal justice and addictions. While working as the Program Director for Evolution Expression’s Arts for Healing Program, Taylor continued her graduate schooling and earned her Masters of Arts Degree in Psychology, with an emphasis in Clinical Psychology through Fielding Graduate University in 2020.

In continued pursuit of her dreams, Dr. Taylor Clark finished her clinical training as a doctoral Clinical Psychology student with Fielding Graduate University. Dr. Clark completed her dissertation research titled, “Creative Work During the COVID-19 Pandemic” and completed her predoctoral psychology residency with Rochester Institute of Technology’s Priority Behavioral Health Clinic and Innovative Technology program in Rochester, New York. Here, she completed a full-time advanced clinical training in health service psychology, which prepared her for her career as a Clinical Psychologist. Dr. Clark graduated with her doctoral degree in August of 2023. Dr. Clark is very excited to return to her hometown, to continue serving individuals across the lifespan as a generalist in Clinical Psychology.

In her free time, Dr. Clark enjoys creating her own artwork, traveling, spending time with her family and friends, and quality time with her pets. At Evolution, Dr. Clark focuses on providing a warm, welcoming, supportive, and therapeutic space that allows children and families to process trauma through imaginative platforms such as drawing, painting, and a variety of other creative modalities. In addition to this focus, Dr. Clark is also a certified NCTI Crossroads and Real Colors facilitator, strength-based family worker, and is trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Taylor's long-term goals include: securing licensure as a Clinical Psychologist; working to grow and expand Evolution Counseling's scope and reach; and continuing a life of learning, research, and compassion toward others.
