Biography

“My philosophy is that every child and family is doing their best to function in very challenging circumstances. I view my role as an ally and impartial observer, who can help both child and family find new ways to solve problems.”

Dr. Held is a licensed clinical psychologist. He specializes in pediatric psychology, nephrology and pulmonology. His clinical interests include anxiety, depression, medical trauma, chronic illness and treatment adherence.

He is the director of the Psychology Practicum Training in the Pediatric Psychology Department of Atrium Health Levine Children’s Specialty Center.

Dr. Held works with a chronically ill population in nephrology and pulmonology, which allows him to work with families throughout both medical and personal challenges and growth. He feels it’s a privilege to be part of their journeys, learn from them and help them work through all the changes in their lives.

He received his PhD from Suffolk University and completed a fellowship at Levine Children’s Hospital.

Outside of work, he enjoys watching sports, spending time outdoors, exploring new restaurants and taking road trips to new places.
