POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. – Dr. Dorothy Boston recently joined Valley Health’s team of providers in Point Pleasant and Gallipolis Ferry.

Dr. Boston received her doctorate in psychology from Marshall University in 2010. She completed a pre-doctoral internship in rural psychology at St. Anthony’s Point in Pennsylvania.

For the past two years, she has been in private practice in the area, primarily providing diagnostic and early intervention services, as well as adult services. She has received certification as an early intervention specialist. She previously served as a director of clinical services for Woodland Centers Inc., for four years, and prior to that she provided services in West Virginia for over 10 years. She treats adults and children of all ages and has an interest in general clinical psychology.

“I like being a clinical psychologist because it is about helping people solve problems,” Boston said. “Everyone who comes in has a unique situation to deal with, and together we figure out the best way to work through it.”

Boston is currently accepting new patients at Valley Health — Point Pleasant Pediatrics, 2801 Jackson Ave. in Point Pleasant, as well as Valley Health-Gallipolis Ferry, 15167 Huntington Road, Gallipolis Ferry.
