PAU Alumna Applies Apps to Public Mental Health, Live Webinar with Katie Taylor, Psy.D.

Moderated by PAU President Maureen O'Connor


PAU'S Superstar Psychologists in Technology series returns Thursday, October 8, featuring Katie Taylor, a licensed clinical psychologist and graduate of the PGSP-Stanford Psy.D. Consortium. Dr. Taylor's work focuses on providing evidence-based, effective, accessible mental health services. She will discuss using technology-based behavioral health tools to create greater public access to mental health services. She will also address creative ways to combine parenting and graduate school, a subject she is passionate about. 

Dr. Taylor currently works for the Veterans Administration's Mobile Apps Team at the Menlo Park campus, where she designs, tests, and disseminates mobile apps for mental health. She has been involved in the development of digital mental health interventions since 2003, when she worked in the Behavioral Medicine Lab of PAU Research Professor C. Barr Taylor, looking at ways to reduce the risk for eating disorders using online programming.

Dr. Taylor also enjoys consulting in mobile app development in the public and private sectors, most recently for apps focused on coping with mental health effects from wildfires and managing postpartum depression. She has a clinical role at PRACTICE San Francisco, where she sees individual clients and runs low-cost support groups for pregnant and postpartum parents.
