Mary Noble, Psy.D.
Dr. Mary Noble is a clinical psychologist licensed to provide psychotherapy and assessment services in Maryland. Her primary clinical interests are the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders, as well as anger, self-esteem, and communication issues. She works with adolescents, adults, families, and couples, and practices a “whole-person” approach that addresses psychological struggles as they coexist within the larger context of a person’s overall functioning. She believes that a safe, secure, trust-based relationship is essential to successful therapy outcomes, and works with you to develop a collaborative treatment plan tailored to your unique circumstances, struggles, and strengths.
Dr. Noble relies mainly on evidence-based practices, including Cognitive-Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Prolonged Exposure. When appropriate, she also draws from her background in psychoanalytic theories and therapies that emphasize the importance of addressing and understanding the importance of early life experiences, and how these contribute to the formation of maladaptive thinking and/or behavior patterns.
Dr. Noble completed her undergraduate degree at Concord University in her hometown of Athens, WV, and went on to earn both her M.A. in Forensic Psychology and her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology in Arlington, VA. Dr. Noble completed externships at Mental Health Resources in Fredericksburg, Virginia, where she focused primarily on assessment and treatment of ADHD in children, and the Maryland Correctional Training Center in Hagerstown, Maryland, where she provided psychotherapy services to incarcerated individuals struggling with mental health issues. Her internship and post-doctoral training were both completed at the Martinsburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV, where she worked with Veterans of all ages coping with PTSD, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and substance use/abuse.
