about dr. erikka Taylor

I am a double board-certified child, adolescent, and adult psychiatrist with experience in treating psychiatric conditions such as anxiety disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, trauma, neurodevelopmental disorders, and psychotic disorders. I am committed to providing compassionate and comprehensive care that incorporates supportive therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and psychopharmacology. I also provide workshops on a number of topics such as eating disorders, body image, school/work/life balance, stress management, faith & mental health, and mental health among diverse populations.

Mental illness impacts individuals, families, communities, and systems, therefore I believe in a collaborative and integrative approach to treating psychiatric conditions. Mental health advocacy is also important to me, and I have served as President of the North Carolina Council of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry and as a subject matter advisor for “I Live For”, a non-profit organization that aims to reduce cultural stigma associated with psychiatric conditions among youth of color.
