Kaitlyn Patterson (MA, LPA)

Kaitlyn I received my BS in psychology at Armstrong State University in Savannah, GA. I came to North Carolina to continue my education and received my MA in Clinical Psychology, with a concentration in Substance Abuse Treatment from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I am a Licensed Psychological Associate as well as a certified Health Services Provider- PA. Additionally, I am currently seeking licensure as a Clinical Addiction Specialist.

At Delta Behavioral Health, I work as a Facility Program Therapist in the Partial Hospital Program, Mental Health Intensive Outpatient program, and Substance Abuse Intensive Outpatient program. Additionally, I have begun my individual practice. In my private practice, I incorporate my creativity in my treatment approach in which I utilize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing treatments to facilitate individuals working through various psychological problems, including those clients with dual diagnoses. Although I treat a variety of psychological problems, I specialize in eating disorders, substance use, mood disorders, trauma, and women’s issues.

Hurricane Florence Closure Updates:

POSTED: September 16, 2018

Due to the ongoing emergency caused by Hurricane Florence, Delta Behavioral Health is currently unable to resume services. Many essential staff members have evacuated and are unable to return or are simply unable to reach the office. We are currently looking into returning our services gradually as critical staff and resources become available to us. Some individual therapists may be able to resume individual treatment quickly and will contact their patients if and when they are available. We do not yet have a timeline set, but we will provide updates as we get information.

While we have little control over the circumstances, we deeply regret that your services have been disrupted and hope to resume services as soon as possible. If you are having an emergency, please do not hesitate to go to the emergency room or contact 911. If you are out of medication, your pharmacy may be able to bridge your prescription to your next appointment with your prescriber.

Julie Small (PMHNP/BC)

Julie I am a psychiatric nurse practitioner with 6 years of experience working with adults in outpatient mental health clinics. I perform comprehensive psychiatric assessments, diagnose, recommend treatment, and when appropriate, prescribe medication in treating a wide range of mental health and brain disorders including depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, PTSD, anxiety, OCD, personality disorders, ADHD, and intellectual/developmental disabilities. As mental health disorders can have their origin in biological and psychological factors, medication management may be one modality in your treatment. I also recommend individual therapy, DBT group therapy, EMDR, healthy eating habits, and various forms of exercise including yoga and Thai Chi.

I worked as a registered nurse for over 30 years prior to going back to school to complete my master’s degree in psychiatric nursing from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I count it a privilege and a blessing to work together with a client to choose the best fit of treatments in the process of building a life worth living.
Although we are originally from Kentucky, my husband and I have lived in the New Hanover County area since 1990 with a brief 3 years spent in Minneapolis, Minnesota. North Carolina was calling us back! I enjoy spending time outdoors, walking and gardening. I also like reading fiction, practicing yoga, and spending time with friends and our family; 3 sons, 2 daughter in laws, and 4 grandchildren.
