I also employ Registered Psychological Assistants. Psychological Assistants are typically advanced in their clinical training, but not yet fully licensed and able to practice independently. These clinicians work under my supervision and function as my employee. Accordingly, the psychological assistant can provide services that may be not covered by insurances and offer reduced fee services based on financial need.
