Taylor Kirby, M.A.

 Licensed Master's Level Psychologist

I am so happy you are here! Please allow me to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Taylor! First, I feel you should know I am a proud Jayhawk and Ichabod! I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Kansas, and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Washburn University. My most enriching training experiences include working with children at the Edna A. Hill Child Development Center in Lawrence, Kansas, serving the community of Topeka, Kansas at the Washburn Psychological Services Clinic, providing care to patients in a psychiatric hospital setting at KVC Prairie Ridge in Kansas City, and at Responsive Centers for Psychology and Learning completing psychological evaluations and individual therapy in Overland Park, Kansas. 
 
My friends, family, and colleagues have always described me as a “kid person.” In my eyes, I believe engaging with children is the key to remaining eternally young. I have spent the majority of my training specializing in comprehensive psychological evaluation and therapeutic services for children, teens, and young adults. My assessments focus on the areas of general development, neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., Autism, ADHD, Intellectual Disabilities), mood/anxiety disorders, and academic/learning disabilities. I utilize a cognitive and behavioral approach to treating anxiety disorders (e.g., panic, OCD, social anxiety), social skills deficits, executive functioning challenges, and mood/behavioral difficulties. I am passionate about helping individuals and families from all walks of life. 

I have known I wanted to pursue a career in psychology from an early age, and have embarked on this journey with one of my favorite quotes in mind. “Find your passion. It is absolutely essential you find a way to obtain a level of satisfaction from your work as you do from your free time. To live for the weekend is, after all, to waste 71.43% of your life.” – Beau Taplin. Outside of my time at Meadowlark, you can find me paddle boarding, with my pitbull Tank, or with friends on a patio trying new restaurants! I take great pride in my working relationship with each individual and family I meet, and hope you will collaborate with me if my mission aligns with yours!
