A Word From Dr. Eve

It is not so long ago that I recall feeling lost after graduate school.  I was carefully groomed to learn my craft but what should come next?  I also remember wishing there were better tools to prepare me for licensure.  I longed for something which took my lifestyle and my real-world demands into consideration.  Seems like the EPPP preparation materials were filled with mountains of too much unnecessary information.  Did I mention the costs involved?  It was rather discouraging if not daunting.  When it came to the Oral exam, a virtual void was before me.  There was no support and I had to make it all up on my own, in terms of how to prepare and what to study.  Even when I asked others who had taken it before, they seemed lost as how to offer support.  It is from those experiences that the Psychology Oral Exam Testing Program was developed.

After licensure, there still remained the question of what was my true professional calling?  How should I approach this?  Graduate school did not seem to prepare the clinician for the real world of business, accounting, legal basics, daily operational procedures, HIPPA guidelines, insurance headaches, etc.  So, I took time to find out more and went to the “experts” to learn whatever I could.  I would like to share what I have learned with you. 

I wanted to offer a better way for others so that they would not have to go through the maze alone.  That is why I created this online community.  It is my hope that I may offer support and that together we can also create a positive community where members genuinely develop bonds and come to support and aide each other. 

I wish you every success in your endeavors and please, always remember to treat yourself gently as you go.

Dr. Eve ( Evelyn Jagpat O’Halloran  Psy.D.)
