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.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Relationship issues, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Self esteem, ADHD, Abandonment, Attachment Issues, Blended Family Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Communication Problems, Divorce and Separation, Expats, Family of Origin Issues, Family Problems, Fatherhood Issues, Immigration Issues, Isolation / Loneliness, Multicultural Concerns, Postpartum Depression, Pregnancy and Childbirth, Prejudice and Discrimination, Self-Love, Sexual Dysfunction, Women's Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

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.
