Carolina Pediatric Psychology was founded in 2023 by Dr. Olivia Lynch to increase access to psychological services across North Carolina.

Dr. Lynch spent two years working in the field of school psychology for Onslow County Schools before beginning her PhD in health psychology, with a concentration in pediatric school psychology, at East Carolina University. Dr. Lynch completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship with Geisinger, a regional health system in Pennsylvania, as a part of her doctoral training. Dr. Lynch has provided psychological services in multiple health care settings, including pediatric primary care clinics, family medicine sites, hospitals, and private practices.  Clinically, Dr. Lynch specializes in working with children, adolescents, and young adults with anxiety and depression, as well as working with parents of children with disruptive behaviors. She incorporates a variety of evidence-based theoretical orientations into her work, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Behavioral Parent Training. Dr. Lynch prioritizes building rapport and establishing warm, positive working relationships with clients and families. Dr. Lynch currently lives in Clinton, NC with her husband, William, their daughter, Rosie Eleanor, and black lab, Sadie Mae.

Policies & FAQ

  • Are services only virtual? ​

    • At the moment, services are only virtual and will be conducted through a secure, HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform. Dr. Lynch requires you to be in a private location for your appointment. You cannot be driving or riding in a car, due to safety reasons. For children and teens, please be sure they have their own private room (with a door closed), and ensure they are not worried about parents or siblings coming in to interrupt them or overhear the therapy session. ​​

  • What is the fee for services? ​

    • Initial 60-minute intake visits are $200. Return 30-minute sessions are $100. Return 45-minute sessions are $150. After the initial appointment, Dr. Lynch will provide a Good Faith Estimate before beginning treatment. This will estimate the cost of treatment over the course of your work together. More information about your rights to a Good Faith Estimate can be found at

  • Do you accept insurance? ​

    • ​Similar to many other mental health providers, Dr. Lynch is not an “in-network” provider for any health insurance; this provides flexibility in treatment planning to ensure each client's needs are best met. In many cases, your insurance company will reimburse a portion of your out-of-network health care expenses. At the end of each month, Dr. Lynch will provide a “superbill" statement that you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. If you're interested in receiving out-of-network reimbursement, it is recommended that you contact your insurance company prior to beginning treatment to determine whether you have out-of-network mental health benefits, whether you have a deductible, and to ask what the reimbursement rate is for out-of-network providers.

  • What are your payment policies? 

    • Payment is required via a credit card which remains on file for each client. Dr. Lynch requires a credit card on file for all clients, and your card will be used to collect payment on the same day of service. You will be notified each time your card is charged. All card information is stored securely within the HIPAA-compliant electronic health record system. If your credit card becomes uncollectable, you will be expected to provide a new card before the next session. ​

  • What is your policy for missed appointments?

    • There will be a $50 missed appointment fee for all appointments not canceled within 24 hours (unless the appointment has to be missed due to illness, injury, or an emergency situation). 

  • How do I start services? ​

    • Call or email Dr. Lynch, and she will aim to return your message within 24 hours to discuss availability and scheduling for services. Dr. Lynch will also assist you in determining if she is a good fit for your treatment needs or if she should instead assist you in finding another, more appropriate provider. The initial visit is one-hour to allow time for assessment and collaboratively discussing a plan for treatment. Follow-up sessions will be scheduled as appropriate. ​

  • Who is not a good fit for your services? ​

    • Given that services are currently virtual-only, anyone under the age of 8 is likely not a good fit for telehealth. Additionally, Dr. Lynch specializes in children, teens, and young adults, so adults over the age of 22 are likely not the best fit for Dr. Lynch. Individuals with severe depression, severe suicidal ideation or severe self-injury, and individuals with psychotic disorders will need more intensive treatment than what Dr. Lynch can provide virtually. ​
