Joe R. Taylor, MA

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Joe Taylor, Therapist

While Joe accepts a variety of clients, he loves to work with couples. He particularly finds it rewarding to help men experiencing challenges in their relationship. Joe freely admits his bias lies in helping couples find ways to make their relationship work. To accomplish this, Joe focuses on three essential tools:

  • Teaching good communication skills
  • Discovering ways to meet your partner’s need
  • and, examining the patterns of the family you grew up in as a means to understand how you now function in your marriage.

When appropriate, Joe helps you utilize your spirituality 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 (LMFT46406). He is also the founder of Chico Creek Counseling.
