About Me

Adrienne Inscoe, PHD

I am a licensed psychologist (NC Psychology Board License #5019) who works with children, teens, and adults. Prior to starting my private practice, I was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine, where I was involved in clinical work and research focused on developing and disseminating treatments for depression and co-occurring conditions. 

I completed my undergraduate work at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I earned a dual Ph.D. in Child Development and Clinical Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Additionally, I completed my pre-doctoral internship at Columbia University in New York and a post-doctoral fellowship at Duke University.

My approach includes interventions that are informed by science and years of clinical practice, including:

These approaches work best when we can develop a strong therapeutic relationship. Accordingly, I prioritize creating a warm, supportive space for us to work together toward the goals that are most important to you.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my son, and our two cats, reading, puzzling (crossword and jigsaw), and visiting the mountains and beaches of NC.
