Dr. Ndiya Nkongho

As a clinical psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, I provide psychotherapy and consultation for people interested in intentional, joyful and passionate living. I enjoy working with clients as they learn to assess, enhance, and integrate their physical and mental health.

My research and clinical experience has focused on the areas of identity, coping and resilience in the face of trauma and loss. I earned my doctorate from Georgia State University and completed my internship and post-doctoral training at Vanderbilt University and Columbia University, respectively. I have also served as a Visiting Assistant Professor at The Catholic University of America (Washington, DC). I maintain current licensure in Georgia and New York. I serve as a clinical supervisor to psychiatry residents at Emory University and to psychology students at Georgia State University.

Although I enjoy being a clinical supervisor and classroom instructor, my primary focus is on the fulfilling work of being a psychotherapist. Through my private practice, I work with people with varying backgrounds, personal strengths, challenges, and goals. I am happy to work in close collaboration with other medical professionals, and often work in tandem with clients’ prescribing psychiatrists to provide a comprehensive level of care.
