Why work with a licensed psychologist?
Licensed psychologists have doctoral degrees and have received more training in mental health than any other licensed professional group. This means that they have a median of seven years of training in mental health beyond a bachelor’s degree. Licensed psychologists in the state of Oregon have graduate degrees along with a minimum of two years of full time supervised clinical training.
Licensure is meant to protect the public from clinicians who have not
been well trained or do not have the client’s best interest in
mind. Licensed psychologists abide by the American
Psychological Association's Code of Ethics and are committed to
protecting the welfare of the client.
