Karis R. McClammy, PhD
Dr. McClammy is a Licensed Psychologist who earned her Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology, her M.S. in Clinical Psychology from Alabama A&M University, and B.S. in Biology from Albany State University. She completed her doctoral internship training at the Howard University Counseling Center and a postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University with the Faculty Staff Assistance Program. As a generalist, Dr. McClammy enjoys individual therapy, couples therapy, group therapy, clinical supervision, psychological testing, and crisis intervention. She works primarily with the emerging adult and adult populations in therapy but conducts psychological testing with children, adolescents, and adults. She draws from psychodynamic and interpersonal frameworks in therapy and uses the therapeutic relationship to support the client’s interpersonal needs. Dr. McClammy’s approach to therapy is collaborative and supportive with the goal of instilling hope and fostering empowerment at the heart of her work with clients. Additionally, she is passionate about social justice and cultural identity, which ultimately impacts and informs her work with clients. Clinical interests include: grief and loss, spirituality, mental health stigma within the African American community, relationship concerns, depression, trauma, women’s issues, and suicide prevention. Outside of work, Karis enjoys spending time with her family, reading, dancing, and discovering and watching the best (and sometimes the worst) series on Netflix.
