Nicholas Taylor, Ph.D.


I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in the evidence-based treatment of anxiety spectrum and behavioral disorders in children and adolescents. I received my M.A and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Suffolk University where I specialized in developmental psychopathology and conducted empirical research on the relationship between sleep and environmental stress. After completing an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at The Help Group in Los Angeles, I returned to Boston and completed my post-doctoral fellowship at McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affiliate. At McLean I treated adolescents and families struggling with complex presentations at the Adolescent Acute Residential Treatment (ART) Program. I gained specific expertise in treating children and adolescents with anxiety and OCD at the McLean Anxiety Management Intensive Outpatient Program.

In 2016 I moved to Austin with my cats and now enjoy working as an outpatient therapist focused primarily on helping children, young adults, and families to understand and manage anxiety, OCD, and related conditions. In addition to treating anxiety and OCD, I have expertise in working with adolescents struggling with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, school refusal, functional disorders, Depression, and disrupted sleep. I am also an experienced parent behavioral coach. I primarily utilize cognitive and behavioral methods of intervention such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure with Response Prevention (E/RP), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
