What is a Georgia licensed psychologist?

A Georgia licensed psychologist is a doctoral level mental health specialist who has approximately seven years of educational training after graduating from college. Psychologists must hold a doctoral degree, complete a post-doctoral year of training and pass a national exam before they can be licensed.

They are required to continue pursuing education for the duration of the licensure. Psychology is the only non-medical mental health profession which requires a doctoral level of education in order to be licensed. Psychologists have many areas of specialty including, but not limited to, helping clients with life problems, with serious mental health problems, performing evaluation assessments and neuropsychological testing.
