Dr. Nathaniel Mills, Psychologist in Sacramento, CA.

Dr. Nathaniel Mills is a licensed psychologist in Sacramento, CA.

As a researcher, practicing psychologist, and past president of the Sacramento Valley Psychology Association (SVPA), I am dedicated to providing state-of-the art mental healthcare treatment to the greater Sacramento, CA area. Through the use of evidence-based therapies and the application of cutting edge research in emotional health, I help clients find their own personal success stories.

My mission is to help people struggling with work, relationships, and life choices find stability in a trusting, compassionate, cooperative therapeutic relationship.
