I'M NOT A NEWBIE.  Licensed as a psychologist in California since 1998, I have treated several hundreds of individuals and couples and exceeded the 10,000-hour mark doing therapy.  (The "10,000 Hour-Rule" was popularized by Malcolm Gladwell in his book "Outliers" where he proposes that the to success is a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of at least 10,000 hours.) 

If I include all of my experience and training before getting licensed as a psychologist, I have been working in the field and/or in graduate school for psychology for an additional ten years of training and and a wide range of professional experiences.  I even qualified for and achieved a master's level license (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the state of Texas along the way in 1995.  Let's just safely say I have had more than 20 years of full-time professional experience in a wide variety of mental health and organizational settings and leave it at that.
