CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST CREATES A WEBSITE ON DEPRESSION

Depression is an illness that many of us face on a daily basis and having suffered from it from many years along with being a licensed psychologist myself, I created the site www.masterofclinicalpsychology.com . There are many pages on the web dedicated to depression and therapy but there really are not a lot that focus on those who want to get educated in the
field of clinical psychology. As a result, my goal was to make a site that
lays out all the info in one place that you can find what it takes to get
a Masters degree in psychology along with the next steps to starting a
career.
