I am a clinical psychologist and have been licensed in the State of Maryland for over 25 years. I was born in St. Lucia, a Caribbean Island in the West Indies, and immigrated to Brooklyn, New York as an adolescent. My personal knowledge and clinical training working with English-speaking immigrants has resulted in significant understanding and expertise in family re-unification, challenges related to dual identity and adjustment in multigenerational households.
I received my master’s and doctoral degrees from the Pennsylvania State University and my clinical training at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, New York. I moved to Maryland in 1998 to provide school-based mental health services in the Baltimore City Public School System in partnership with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health Services at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. Ultimately, becoming head of the department and finally retiring from Hopkins, leading all child related psychiatry programs, as Director of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Programs.
My clinical work primarily focuses on supporting individuals transitioning to adulthood (ages 16 to 24 years), adults, seniors and families struggling with anxiety and depression from grief, loss and coping with life challenges.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Jacquelyn Duval-Harvey. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Dr Duval-Harvey has been very helpful to me! I feel like I’m making good progress and small life changes that are making a real difference in my life and how I feel. She’s personable, keeps things real, is thoughtful in her responses, and I feel I can relate to her and tell her my true feelings and thoughts.
I haven't been seeing her for long but I have made a lot of progress in that time. She's very understanding but is not afraid to tell it like it is. I am very comfortable with her and am willing to open up about the difficult things.
Dr. Duval-Harvey has made me feel comfortable and I have enjoyed all of our sessions so far.
Very considerate; she listens intently and communicates effectively.
Dr Harvey is truly amazing! I’m just two sessions, we have really made strides to getting to the root. She’s extremely down to earth and easy to talk to, a true connection. I’m so thankful for her!
Dr. Harvey is thorough, patient, professional and an excellent listener. She helped me to make sense of the craziness and trauma I experienced as a child. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a therapist that is a compassionate good listener.
She was great at coaching and supporting me through my grief and transitions in life
She is very experienced, personable and compassionate. I definitely feel heard when I need to feel heard, and I'm taught things when it's necessary. I've only had a couple of sessions, but I'm already starting to feel more confident in my ability to achieve my goals.

She has already hit the nail on the head more than once in only a few sentences. She is very responsive & helpful!!
