At Lepage Associates we make every effort to provide you with the highest quality mental health services available. To join the Lepage Associates team, our therapists and evaluators must have the highest education available in mental health, i.e., a doctorate degree in psychology, or, a master’s degree with a minimum of 10 years experience. (At times we may also have students or license-eligible therapists in training, however, when considering students we typically choose only those for whom psychology is a second career so they are already older/mature with much life experience, and typically are transitioning into mental health from other health fields or jobs in education.) Your provider will also hold other master and undergraduate level degrees in psychology and/or related areas, and may have additional specialty certifications or training. While our clinicians are all trained as generalists, each also has unique areas of expertise, and we pride ourselves on the breadth of specialties we are able to offer clients. At Lepage Associates, we offer truly comprehensive mental health services by having adult and child psychiatry on-site in addition to adult and child psychologists.

Willa King

Hello! My name is Willa King, and I first began working for Lepage Associates as a senior at UNC-CH through the Karen M. Gil Internship Program. As a Gil intern, my tasks were mainly research-oriented. I also edited clinical interviews and wrote for Lepage Associates’ various blogs and newsletters. After graduating with my Bachelor’s in Psychology, I began working as one of the office manager assistants. My daily tasks at the front desk included checking people in, billing, records management, and other administrative tasks as needed. Now, I do administrative tasks and occasional research remotely, write weekly blog articles and am the social media manager. I help keep the practice close to the community by posting our blog articles and newsletters on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn. I am so happy to be getting these experiences here at Lepage Associates, and my plan for the future is to go to graduate school and then become a therapist myself!
