Forensic evaluation and intervention services for court-involved juveniles
Dr. Gray is an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at GMU. Her instructional focus is in Forensic psychology. Dr. Gray is a licensed clinical psychologist whose forensic practice has spanned a broad range of evaluation and treatment services over the course of more than two decades. She is qualified as a forensic expert by courts in multiple jurisdictions in the Washington DC metropolitan area. She is particularly committed to the delivery of quality forensic evaluation and intervention services for court-involved juveniles, a population which she believes warrants greater forensic focus in applied practice.
Also, Dr. Gray has found that some of her most consequential forensic work has involved the assessment of immigrants who seek asylum to avoid deportation and remain in the United States. In this capacity, she plays a key role in whether families remain together or will be separated from one another. She believes it is critical that forensic evaluators who conduct such evaluations write reports that communicate the humanity of the individuals before the court.
Dr. Gray is known to share with students her belief that decades of choices have led her to the rich and stimulating environment at GMU which “feeds [her] soul." As the grandniece of Dr. Inez Beverly Prosser (her grandmother’s sister), who is formally acknowledged by the American Psychological Association (APA) as the country’s first female African American Psychologist, Dr. Gray is proud to carry on her family's legacy of excellence in academia. As an educator and a mentor to students from all walks of life, her greatest desire is to pass on that legacy to future generations.
