Personalized Treatment

There is no formula for growth and healing. You are the best expert in how to be the best you. Each person must find their own way on their personal journey. We don’t believe there is only one way to get better. Taproot Therapy therapists help you find a therapy that meets your needs. Where ever you want to go, we want to help you get there.

“Neuroscience research shows that the only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going inside ourselves.”

What Is Taproot Therapy

Taproot Therapy is a collective of therapists who share resources to create a more efficient way to offer services for self discovery, growth and healing in Birmingham. We offer the most cutting edge neuroscientifically backed treatment for PTSD, trauma and anxiety. Brainspotting, EMDR, somatic therapies for trauma and IFS, Jungian therapy, meditation and mindfulness are just a few of our clinicians modalities. We believe that therapy is about more than reducing symptoms. Taproot Therapy Collective does not use “one size fits all” therapy models. Instead we try to personally understand each patient and help reconnect them with the journey that their life calls them toward. We make no presumptions about who you are or where you are going. The clinicians at Taproot Therapy Collective only want to help you find yourself and to find the way to where your journey calls you.

“Until you make the unconscious conscious it will direct your life and you will call it fate.

– Carl Jung

Start Finding Yourself

Often times symptoms bring us into therapy. Dissociation, anxiety, depression, anger, or relationship problems can make you start looking for a therapist. Taproot Therapy Collective can help you heal all of these symptoms and more. Often the real gift of therapy doesn’t come from the things that we get rid of, but the things that we gain. Most of us live our life in a fog that we cant se out of. We go through our routine just surviving while not being alive. Therapy can often help us clear this fog. Therapy can allow you to start to feel yourself and your life in a healthy way. Often therapy can help you remember what it was like to be excited about life and energized for the future. Taproot Therapy Collective can help you learn to listen to the real authentic you, and help you discover your unlived life.

Our Promise



Taproot therapists each have different specializations so we can provide you with the best fit. Every Taproot Therapist is trained in the latest neuroscientifically backed treatments for trauma and PTSD including Brainspotting.



We don’t believe there is a formula for growth or healing. We want to help you find the unique way you can find your unique self. Every Taproot therapist is trained in multiple therapy modalities so that we can provide you with the biggest bag of tools to draw from.


Depth-Based Approach

We don’t want to offer you a bandaid for recovery. Taproot Therapy wants to get to the root your symptoms. We specializes in brain based medicine and depth psychology backed approaches to healing.

These techniques promote healing in the deep brain instead of covering up the symptoms of trauma or managing them with behavioral techniques.



We want you to find the right therapist even if it is not at Taproot. We are happy to recommend another community provider that fits your needs even if we don’t.

Feel free to contact us with a question about mental health even if you are not sure how therapy works. The best way to prevent mental health problems is to be part of an informed, aware and supportive community.

No one chooses to suffer from anxiety, panic, or depression. No one chooses to struggle with anger management, addiction, or relationship problems. Unfortunately, the solutions to these problems are not always clear.

Frequently Asked Questions About Therapy

We can work hard to feel better and still be discouraged with no improvement. It is easy to feel hopeless when those around you cannot understand how you feel. Your friends and family may even offer you advice that makes you feel more alone.

Taproot Therapy Collective is a group of trauma focused therapists trained in many therapy styles. We believe in personalizing treatment for each patient and each issue. We specialize in helping patients harness their uniqueness and creative spark to overcome barriers for growth and healing.

What is Brainspotting?

Brainspotting is one of the fastest, safest and most effective treatment options for PTSD, trauma anxiety and depression. All of Taproot Therapy Collective therapists are trained in Brainspotting. We have many other options for treatment available at Taproot Therapy, but Brainspotting is always an option.

How Do I Know What Type of Therapy I Need?

Most people come into therapy knowing that they need help and that’s all. One of the reasons that Taproot Therapy Clinicians train in multiple modalities is so they can integrate them so you can find exactly what you need. We want you to learn about what therapy is in therapy. All you need to know to start therapy is what you want out of therapy.

What Areas Does Taproot Therapy Serve?

Taproot Therapy can provide teletherapy services to anyone in Alabama. We are happy to see you in person at our office at 2025 Shady Crest Drive Hoover Alabama 35216.

How Should I Choose a Therapist?

We want you to be with someone who specializes in the area of help that you need. We will help you find a therapist based on what you want. Call us and tell us what you want. If we aren’t a good fit we will help you find someone in the community who is.

How Do I Know That Therapy Will Work?

We want you to get help even if it is not with us. If we are not the right therapist for you we want to refer you to one. If what you need is physical therapy, craniosacral therapy, a support group. We want to make sure that you get where you are going.
