Mi-shael Taylor, LLMSW


I believe in the power of storytelling, art and expression as healing agents of change. As a therapist, my main goal is to ensure that you feel seen, heard and that your needs are reflected in our work together. Building rapport and crafting a safe environment is essential to my practice. My hope is that I am able to assist you on your journey of self-exploration, understanding your history, present and help strengthen your outlook for the future. I have a strong desire to support others to develop healthy holistic lifestyles and supportive tools that will guide them through not only treatment but throughout life.

I am a limited licensed master social worker. I have more than five years of experience working in health settings, with individuals, groups and families, LGBTQIA2S+, children/youth and adults of underserved/marginalized communities.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Sociology, with minors in Health Promotion and Youth & Society from Michigan State University. I obtained my graduate degree from the University of Michigan in Social Work as a Clinical Scholar from the Interpersonal Practice: Integrated Health, Mental Health and Substance Use program. I have worked in community mental health settings, hospitals and long-term care facilities, and residential settings for youth, all where I’ve gained training in trauma-informed care, and interventions for conditions including, but not limited to: depression and anxiety, PTSD, and sexual trauma. I am motivated to promote health, wellness and support your continuous growth. I look forward to working with you!
