Taylor Millard
MSW

Taylor is a Post-Masters Social Work fellow who recently graduated from Smith College School for Social Work.  Prior to joining CAPS, she gained experience co-facilitating court-mandated therapy for adults, collaborating with students as a peer advocate, engaging with young adults in a transitional living program, providing outpatient services to individuals & groups in a community mental health setting, and clinically supporting sexual assault survivors as a clinical intern with Moving to End Sexual Assault (MESA).

Taylor draws upon a variety of perspectives in the clinical encounter and has training in trauma treatment, psychodynamic & relational therapies, motivational interviewing (MI), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT).  Taylor grounds her work in the belief that all individuals deserve to feel seen, heard, and understood, and she is passionate about co-creating a common language with students that will allow them to express the previously inexpressible.
