I'm a local psychologist in private practice, specializing in psychological testing and psychotherapy for professional millennials and entrepreneurs. You can learn more about me here. As my practice has grown, I need additional support. Rather than hire freelancers or virtual assistants half a world away, I'd love to pay it forward by offering this opportunity to local students interested in psychology and want experience for their resumes. I certainly benefitted greatly from these kinds of opportunities as a student.
