Licensed Professional Counselor Intern
Welcome to another episode of The Coach’s Circle Podcast!
Our show is all about showing you everything the world of coaching has to offer–what it is, what it isn’t, and whether it might be the right career choice for you.
Through our conversations with professionals in a variety of different mental health and wellness fields, you’ll gain valuable, real-world insight into their careers and consider how their experiences might impact your own career choices. Our interviews will feature coaches, therapists, counselors, personal trainers, and other professionals who incorporate coaching into their practices. Our hope is that these varied perspectives will help you come to understand exactly the type of coach you were meant to be.
Today’s special guest is Taylor Vest, a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern with Austin Family Counseling based in Austin, Texas.

“There’s a lot of things we go through in the human experience that are so complex that words cannot fully describe what you’re experiencing in its entirety. With sand tray therapy, we use miniature figurines to represent an emotion or an experience, and your brain is processing that in a way that feels more safe. […] It’s amazing because it can unlock things that are buried in the unconscious realm.”
