    About Marie Shaw, Ph.D.

    I am a Licensed Psychologist/Health Services Provider-Psychologist primarily providing individual psychotherapy and psychological testing with adults. I consider the therapeutic relationship to be the centerpiece for helping clients create change, gain insight, and explore their sense of self and identities. As such, I strive to create a safe, collaborative, and empowering relationship through being genuinely empathic and balancing challenge and support. In my sessions, I seek to understand each client’s unique worldview that guides their beliefs about themselves, others, and the world, and integrate a variety of therapeutic techniques (e.g., psychodynamic, interpersonal, and cognitive behavioral) to best meet each client’s individual needs.

    I am licensed in North Carolina, but am also authorized to practice telepsychology in PSYPACT participating states via the The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT).

    My Education & Experience

    I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Binghamton, where I was a Division I Track & Field Athlete. I then received my Master’s degree in Exercise & Sport Science from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and my Doctorate of Philosophy degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I completed my APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the University of Tennessee Counseling Center.

    Following my work at the University of Tennessee Counseling Center, I moved to Lewisburg, Pennsylvania as a Staff Psychologist/Sexual Violence Specialist at Bucknell University Counseling & Student Development Center. I transitioned into the role of Assistant Director, Coordinator for Outreach & Consultation Services at Bucknell University’s Counseling & Student Development Center and then moved to North Carolina to serve as the Director of Counseling Services at Elon University. After 15 years in higher education, I transitioned to an outpatient therapist role with Atrium Wake Forest Baptist Health. I have extensive experience and interest in providing generalist services for a range of presenting concerns, but have specialized experience in working with college students, treating disordered eating, providing ADHD evaluations, EMDR therapy for trauma, and exercise and sport consultation services.
