A licensed psychologist in Chapel Hill NC, Dr. Kevin Metz leads our Chapel Hill psychologist office. In 2015 we opened a second office in Chapel Hill, expanding from our Durham location. Chapel Hill is near and dear to our hearts! Our roots providing psychologists for adults and children began in Chapel Hill in 2002. The Lepage Associates main office was in Chapel Hill from 2002-2007, when we moved just a few miles away to the South Durham/RTP area to be central to the Triangle as a whole. In 2015 we opened a second office in Chapel Hill, returning to our company roots. Now our Chapel Hill clients can choose between a psychologist at our Chapel Hill Office or our S. Durham/RTP Office depending on which one is most convenient for them. Dr. Lepage, a licensed psychologist, also lives in Chapel Hill with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.
Lepage Associates is actively involved in the Chapel Hill and Carrboro area. Over the years we have developed many relationships within the Chapel Hill and Carrboro communities, to include providing services for businesses and schools in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, to testifying in Orange County courts as needed. Our direct client services to Chapel Hill and Carrboro individuals and families include psychotherapy for adults and teens, play therapy for children, marriage counseling, family therapy, educational and psychological testing, forensic evaluations, neurofeedback, and consultation by our adult and child psychologists, as well as psychiatric medication by our psychiatrists.
