Dr. Crystal Lee is a licensed psychologist and owner of a private practice called LA Concierge Psychologist, based in Los Angeles, California. Through her unique "house call" therapy model, she's able to join her clients in partnership and transform their lives. Dr. Lee's life’s passion is to help others grow through life, achieve their goals, and become the best version of themselves. In her practice, she uses this passion to support emerging adults (18-29 year olds), who feel stuck, successfully transition to full-fledged adulthood. In her professional endeavours, she channels that passion into supervising and mentoring early career psychologists. Check out the website for the show notes and links Crystal spoke about!
This episode is the fifth and final chapter of the early career psychologist series, showcasing early career psychologists who are either completing their training, or in their early years of working. These psychologists have come from all different backgrounds and have vastly different life experiences. I love how in this small sample of seven, you get a sense of the diversity of individuals that come to this profession. Each interviewee reminded me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving regularly! In this episode I chatted to Emily Green, a 27 year old from Brooklyn, New York.  Emily graduated with her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in May 2016 from Yeshiva University in the Bronx, NY. In the US, to obtain a license to practice, you are required to pass the EPPP (Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology) after you've received your degree.  Emily completed hers in April 2017.  She is currently completing her doctoral training (a years worth of supervised clinical hours) at a community mental health centre.  This role involves working with children, adults and families from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic communities.  She described her clients as representing the "whole gamut of pathology" from depression and anxiety, to substance abuse disorders, and psychotic-spectrum disorders. It was fabulous to chat to an early career psychologist from overseas! To check out the website head to 
This episode is the fourth of a series of five chapters with early career psychologists. They’re either completing their training, or are in their early years of working, and come from all different backgrounds with vastly different life experiences. I love how in this small sample of seven people, you get a sense of the diversity of individuals that come to this profession. After publishing just 6 of these interviews you’ll see what I mean!   Each person reminds me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving, regularly! In this episode I chatted to Rose Evans, 51 year old mum of 4 (her kids are aged between 23 and 10), owner of 3 chickens and 2 beagles. I also chat to Anastasia Hronis who is 25,  and as well as being a psychologist is a professional pianist! Rose lives in Northwest Sydney and is in her first year of general registration.  She works in a variety of different roles including in private practice at PSYCHmatters in Concord and at a small clinic in West Pennant Hills; director at CAE Psychological Profiling; National Supervising Psychologist for Australian Mensa; and marking for Charles Sturt Uni.  Rose also mentors provisional psychologists, which is one of her areas of passion! Anastasia Hronis was raised and lives in Sydney. She has a Masters of clinical psychology and is in her first year of working as a fully registered psychologist and clinical psychology registrar.   Anastasia studied a Bachelor of Psychology and Honours at the University of Sydney and Master of Clinical Psychology at the University of Technology Sydney. She is currently doing her PhD in the area of adapted CBT mental health interventions for children and adolescents with intellectual disability. Anastasia currently works in a private practice and at St John of God Hospital where she runs group day programs (anxiety groups, depression groups and DBT).  She also works as a musician, has two music performance degrees and has spent time teaching piano and also working as a concert pianist. This is essentially what got her interested in psychology, as she was very curious as to how the mind worked, and how people and children learnt. Anastasia was keen to do this interview because she's a huge fan of the podcast and find it inspiring hearing what other people do.  She says "I'm constantly amazed by the diversity within the field of psychology."

This episode is the third of a series of five chapters with early career psychologists. They’re either completing their training, or are in their early years of working, and come from all different backgrounds with vastly different life experiences. Each interviewee reminds me of the sheer determination and hard work it takes to become a psychologist, something we should pat ourselves on the back for achieving, regularly! In this episode I chat to Ceara Rickard, 31 year old resident of Hobart, Tasmania.  Ceara completed her honours in psychology in 2006, and has worked in psychology-related roles for 10 years. She is currently halfway through her 4+2 training, and previously completed  a Grad Dip of Counselling for Health and Social Care from University of New England.   Ceara is currently working in a youth mental health NGO. Ceara described where she grew up as a pretty rough area of rural QLD. She is from a *huge* family and says her background had a big influence on how she sees psychology, recovery, social justice, and her work with vulnerable members of the community. Ceara was keen to do this interview as she sees many new students and graduates who feel anxious and distressed if they don’t follow a linear pathway to their career and hopes sharing her story may provide a different perspective! Check out the website to comment on Ceara's episode.

They’re either completing their training, or are in their early years of working, and come from all different backgrounds with vastly different life experiences.

In this episode I’m chatting to Kieran Martin, 40 year old father of 5 and 27 year old Tanya Muller who lives on a sheep station in rural NSW. So have a listen and see how we all wear it differently with Kieran Martin and Tanya Muller. Check out the website for further info!

He met his wife (Jenny) in Munich, Germany and came to Australia in 1987. He has 3 grownup children. Jim has been working since he was 14 years old in some capacity or other, and has had A LOT of different jobs. However he considers Psychology to be his first career.  Jim wanted to do this interview to let people know that becoming who you are meant to be, isn’t always a straight road, and that finding the true you can take time. Jim Says "Be patient." So have a listen and see how we all wear it differently with Jim Smith.
