Meet Our Team

We value the advanced doctoral training that psychologists receive, which is the highest degree available in psychology.  Therefore, Reaching Hope is staffed only by Licensed Psychologists and Psychologists-in-Training who specialize in treating complex trauma. 

 

A licensed psychologist is an advanced mental health professional with a doctorate degree in psychology, that is why they are called a "Doctor." They have the highest degree obtainable in the field of psychology and have completed the licensing requirements at the doctoral level. This includes passing both the Examination for the Professional Practice of Psychology and the Jurisprudence Examination, as well as completing one year of post-doctoral supervision.

 

People often confuse psychologists with psychiatrists. A psychiatrist is a Medical Doctor and can prescribe medication

 

All Reaching Hope staff hold a doctorate degree, or are pursuing a doctorate degree (and already hold a master's degree).
