WHO IS TAYLOR J. LANGLEY?
First, I'll start with the obvious - I identify as a Black woman. I also identify as a 20-something, daughter, sister, dog mom, lover, soror, friend, feminist, yogi, Drake-lover, Beyonce-lover, mental health advocate, pro-Black, God-fearing, Ph.D. student. That was a mouth full, right?
I'd like to describe myself as outspoken, assertive, and resilient, and I Iove to travel.
I value authenticity and strive to be my whole, authentic self every day.
I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from THE Florida State University (Go 'Noles!), Master of Science in Psychology from Georgia Southern University (Hail Southern!), and am currently a Counseling Psychology Ph.D. student. I am extremely passionate about all things mental health, especially, Black mental health, athlete mental health, and areas within sport psychology.
My research interests include help-seeking behaviors among Black women and Black male student-athletes. My professional goals include working as a sport psychologist for a university athletic department, transitioning to private practice and consulting with professional teams, and engaging in outreach within the community. Mental health is something that affects us all, indirectly or directly, and I am dedicated to spreading the word and reducing the stigma around it.
One of my life philosophies or mottos is “live out your truth, no matter what that looks like," and I plan to use this platform to do just that. Whether you’re here to learn more about who I am and my experiences, mental health, or grad school, I plan to be as authentic and genuine as possible. I hope you find what you’re looking for. I am Taylor J. Langley, welcome and enjoy.
