Lauren Formy-Duval She/Her/Hers

I am a licensed psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology.  A native of NC, I earned my bachelor of arts in psychology from North Carolina State University, graduating summa cum laude in 1999.  I earned both my masters of science and my doctor of psychology in clinical psychology from Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, graduating in 2005.  I became licensed to practice in North Carolina in 2005, first as LPA and then as a licensed psychologist in 2007. 


I have worked in a variety of settings including schools, hospitals, outpatient clinics, and non-profit agencies.  My work has included leading therapy groups, parenting classes, individual and family therapy sessions, play therapy, psychological testing, and professional consultations.  I have been very privileged to work with some wonderful people and have enjoyed a wide range of experiences.  I began my private practice in the winter of 2010 and became a Gottman Bringing Baby Home Certified Educator in 2015.  In 2017 I joined the U.S. Nanny Institute as an adjunct professor and consultant.

I am grateful to continue to work in my hometown of Durham, NC where I live with my spouse and two children.


Respectful, compassionate, open minded, and committed to practicing with cultural humility, and as an LBGTQ+ ally.
