Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a Psychologist?

A practicing psychologist has the education, training, and clinical expertise to assist individuals in learning to deal with life's challenges and mental health issues more successfully.

What are the qualifications of a Psychologist?

Psychologists who are currently in practice have the specialized training and clinical expertise to assist individuals in learning to deal with life's challenges and mental health issues more successfully. They receive state-issued licenses to offer a variety of services, such as evaluations and psychotherapy, after completing years of graduate school and closely supervised training.

Psychologists assist by employing a variety of techniques based on the best research available and taking into account each individual's particular values, characteristics, goals, and circumstances.

When compared to other health care professionals, psychologists with doctoral degrees (either a Ph.D., PsyD, or EdD) have one of the highest levels of education, having spent, on average, seven years in education and training after receiving their undergraduate degrees.

What does a Psychologist do?

Psychologists in practice assist a wide range of individuals and are skilled in treating a wide range of issues. Because they have felt anxious, angry, or depressed for a long time, some people may consult a psychologist. Or, they need assistance for a long-term illness that is negatively affecting their physical or mental well-being. Others may need assistance navigating immediate issues, such as feeling overburdened by a new job or grieving the loss of a family member.

Psychologists can provide tests and assessments that can aid in the diagnosis of conditions or reveal more about a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They can also help people learn to manage their chronic illnesses, overcome addictions, and cope with stressful situations. These exams may assess a person's cognitive abilities, personality traits, neuropsychological functioning, career aptitude, and preferences.
