Personal coaching: special announcement for COVID-19 changes from Taylor and Guts & Glory GNV
Before I started Guts & Glory GNV, I had a coaching practice and a supervised private practice in licensed counseling. My background is in mental health and I’ve been working in fields of emotional and mental wellness for 13 years. I want to increase my availability for coaching in these challenging times.
I will be offering individual coaching sessions via phone, Skype, and Zoom, depending on your preference. I can also offer group sessions via Zoom if your office needs assistance for business wellness.
My focus includes:
Stress, sadness, and confusion related to uncertainty and change
Self-exploration and growth
Planning and brainstorming for the future
Self-care and healthy habits
Public speaking and presence
My work is to help you access what is already inside you, and to help you see your potential and strengths more clearly. I provide a supportive, listening ear. We can problem solve together, as proactive partners on your journey. The work I do is coaching, not clinical counseling. If you are looking for more clinical help with anxiety, depression, addictions, abuse, or personality disorders, I can also try to refer you to practitioners and resources who can help.
Please feel free to email me at to set up an appointment. If we work together, you will receive an agreement document that assures confidentiality, payment details, and other details. I take payment via Venmo and PayPal for distance coaching. I do not accept insurance, but adjust my prices accordingly.

She also offers training in public speaking and presence. She uses narrative, human-centered and relationship-driven problem solving with her clients - both individuals and groups. Taylor teaches classes based on communication, storytelling, and personal branding at UF.
"I couldn't sleep after the show. I just felt excited about life."
"We love the message y'all portray and how accepting and loving the environment is."
"The energy was incredible."
"That was the cheapest form of therapy."
"I moved here from NYC and have been looking for something like this."
"I really had no clue what we were in for. We ended up going on a safari through the land of motherhood and it was amazing. My buddy and I were talking afterwards, if someone would have been like, 'Hey guys you want to go downtown and hear a dozen mom stories?' It probably wouldn’t have been our first idea for how to spend the evening. Or second. But boy were we wrong! So fun, so powerful...such a cool space where people were just vulnerably HUMAN for 2 hours. Absolutely loved it."
Guts & Glory GNV's mission is to bring live, original, true, first-person, polished storytelling to Gainesville.
We believe that storytelling builds community, gives Gainesvillians a chance to put a voice to their stories, and connects artists with a greater audience in our beloved town.
Since most of our stories - from the ones we tell at dinner parties to the ones that we hold more close to the chest - are about guts and/or glory (or the lack thereof!), we named our gig accordingly. That's what you'll see on stage: the good, the bad, and the ugly. And all true.
Our regularly scheduled shows happen at The Wooly and Cypress & Grove Brewery, but we do things all over town.
Guts & Glory GNV takes inspiration from such storytelling organizations as The Moth, This American Life, and Story District DC.
