1018. A Day in the Life: What’s It Really Like to Be a Clinical Psychologist?
Lara Fielding, PsyD
“Because I was frugal with my money, I bought real estate and other solid investments which allowed me to go back to school for 10 years, support myself during that time, then set up a private practice that allowed me to focus on what mattered to me most. My passion is how we can make ourselves more resilient: the relationship between health, behavior and stress. I want to help individuals understand these vital influences so that they can thrive, not merely survive.”
