Why Choose A PhD Psychologist?
Master’s level therapists are usually trained in psychotherapy techniques, but have little or no courses in psychological assessment, theory, and research.
– John M. Grobol, Psy.D
In choosing a therapist who has graduated from a doctoral program that is approved by the American Psychological Association, you can be sure that the training the person has received has met very specific standards and requirements. Typically these individuals are required to have a well-rounded, research-based education. Part of the graduation requirement from an APA program is to have a year-long internship in a treatment facility where the individual can gain experience with a wide variety of psychological difficulties.
Dr. Barron received her education and training from such a program. In addition, after graduation she also participated in post-doctoral training for over a year in order to qualify to get licensed as a PhD Psychologist.
