Jessica Solis Sloan, Ph.D.


Professional Biography

After earning her Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University, Dr. Solis Sloan received her Master’s and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) with a specialization in children, adolescents, and families. She then completed postdoctoral training fellowships with the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and the Duke ADHD Program. Prior to joining HRC, Dr. Solis Sloan was a faculty member in the Duke Psychiatry Department where she continued her work with the ADHD Program and also served as a clinician in the Duke Center for Adolescent and Young Adult Substance Use Treatment (CAST) Program. During this time, she also served as the faculty co-leader of the joint Task Force for Racial Equity for the Duke ADHD Program and Duke Center for Autism and Brain Development.

Dr. Solis Sloan has significant experience in a variety of clinical contexts, including work in outpatient, intensive outpatient (IOP), partial hospitalization (PHP), and in-patient treatment settings. At HRC, she couples a client-centered and strengths-based approach with her broad clinical training in evidence-based practice across the lifespan to focus especially on the treatment of emotional and behavioral issues in children, adolescents, young adults, and families. She is well-versed in various evidence-based treatments, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), and Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP). Dr. Solis Sloan also has extensive expertise in behavioral parent training, behavior/contingency management, and motivational interviewing. ​​Overall, however, she fully believes that there is no “one-size-fits-all”’ therapeutic approach and works collaboratively with her clients to determine what works best for them.

In addition to her work with HRC, Dr. Solis Sloan also serves as an Adjunct Instructor in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at UNC-CH where she teaches graduate-level courses to students enrolled in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program.

In her spare time, Dr. Solis Sloan enjoys spending time with her family, baking, reading, trying new restaurants, and cheering (sometimes quite loudly) for her favorite sports teams.
