An Intro Into Marpe' Counseling Services

David Taylor, Founder & CEO

The one constant in life is that there will always be mountains to climb. The question is; will you climb yours? Most people live in fear of the size of their mountain and as a result, never climb theirs. Most people will settle for less, will remain discouraged, and will live at the base of their mountain…what about you? The truth of the matter is that your mountain is actually as small or as large as you want it to be. You determine the size of the mountain and you determine the strength of the climber.

We specialize in helping children who are hurting from divorce, angry teens, frustrated parents, couples that want a stronger relationship, and individuals looking for purpose in life...We help you become the mountain conqueror that you were born to be!

Meet David Taylor MA, LMHC

“I believe that we all were created to provide this world with a specific solution to a specific problem.  I also believe that sometimes we need assistance with overcoming life’s obstacles so that we can become that person.  I am very passionate about helping those who struggle to find their own identity…especially fatherless males.  I enjoy serving people and helping them to realize that we are not to become victims of circumstances, circumstances are to become our victims.  I would be honored to join you in your journey towards finding personal healing.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Counseling is a safe place for people to express their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment or repercussions. Counseling is also where people can actually identify their problems, find out how to overcome those problems, and make their lives the best it can be. At Marpe’ Counseling Services, our trained and licensed counselors also regard each client as an individual to be cared for and encouraged during their healing journey. We offer unconditional positive acceptance for everyone regardless of their condition.
We accept checks, cash, debit, and all major credit cards. We currently do not participate with any insurance plans. However, we will assist you in contacting your insurance, giving you receipts to submit, and follow up contacts.
A counselor is a person who has completed rigorous academic studies and real life training. Each of our counselors has at least a Master’s degree in Counseling or Psychology. Generally, it takes 2 to 3 years of study to obtain a Master’s degree. After a counselor graduates with his or her master’s degree, the state of Florida mandates that an additional 2 to 3 years of supervised internship be completed before taking a national licensing exam to become a licensed counselor. Each counselor is also required to complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years. David Taylor is licensed as a mental health counselor for the state of Florida and has been practicing psychology for almost 15 years.
Selecting the right counselor is crucial for healing. Research has shown that the best predictor of treatment success is the relationship between the counselor and the client. It is important for the client to find a counselor he or she can trust and that he or she thinks is a good match for his or her personality style. A counselor should not just tell the client what he or she wants to hear, but should be honest and direct and tell the client what he or she needs to hear as well during the healing journey. Are Marpe' you will be matched with a client based on preference and suitable experience level when possible.
No, the vast majority of people are not “crazy.” Crazy is generally not a term used in counseling. Some people have had a break in their perception of reality and see or hear things that are not real. Those incidents are termed “psychotic” and not “crazy.” Counseling is a very accepted way for people to heal from mental health and substance use disorders without feeling the shame associated with struggling in a particular area of life.
The answer to this question varies and is dependent on your reason for coming to counseling as well as the frequency by which you attend the sessions. Speaking of sessions, each session generally last 60 minutes long.
