I am a clinical & forensic psychologist in Pocatello, Idaho.
My Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree is in clinical psychology.
Calling myself a "forensic psychologist" simply means that I apply clinical psychology knowledge and methods to help answer legal questions. Psychologists who provide healthcare services must be licensed, but there is not a separate license for forensic psychology.
There are important distinctions between clinical and forensic psychological assessment, which you can review in a chart I created: Clinical vs. Forensic Psychology.
My main focus at present is working full-time as a clinical psychologist for a superb healthcare organization, Health West, a community health center in Pocatello, Idaho. I provide psychotherapy and conduct clinical psychological evaluations at Health West.
The term, "clinical psychological evaluation" means that the evaluation seeks to help the individual, e.g., by clarifying diagnoses, describing current problems and strengths, and offering treatment recommendations. It does not help answer legal questions.
Health West is a federally qualified health center (FQHC) that provides primary care, behavioral health, OB/GYN, pediatrics, and dental services to patients in Southeastern Idaho, regardless of their ability to pay.
Note: Health West does not conduct forensic psychological evaluations. Forensic evaluation is a service I offer through my private practice, although I am not currently accepting new referrals.
