Joe R. Taylor, MA, MFT

Joe Taylor, TherapistWhile he accepts a variety of clients, Joe loves to work with couples and particularly men who are experiencing challenges in their relationship. Joe freely admits that his bias is to help the couple find ways to make their relationship work. He teaches good communication skills, ways to learn and meet the needs of your partner, and takes the couple on a journey to look back at the family you grew up in as a way to understand how you now function in your marriage. When appropriate, Joe helps you utilize your spirituality as a means to strengthen yourself and your relationship.


Joe earned a Master of Arts in Education in 1979, and a second Master of Arts in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling in 1997. In 2003, Joe completed training with the University of California, Davis Child CAARE Unit as a therapist-trainer for Parent Child Interaction Therapy.


Joe and his wife have been married since 1970.  They have raised two daughters and have five grandchildren. Joe’s family roots are in Butte County.


Joe is a licensed Marriage Family Therapist (CA #MFC46406). He is the founder of Chico Creek Counseling.
