This episode is for all of you who are thinking about hiring another psychologist in your practice to handle testing. A few episodes ago, we talked about finding a psychometrist. Bringing on another psychologist is similar but certainly has its own nuances. Here a few things that I cover today:
- How do you know when it’s time to hire another testing psychologist in your practice?
- And how do you decide if you want another psychologist rather than a psychometrist?
- Once you make these choices, where do you actually find another psychologist?
- Do you bring on this person as an independent contractor or W2?
- What do you ask and how do you interview another psychologist?

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp
I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and grew to include 12 licensed clinicians, three clinicians in training, and a full administrative staff. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.
As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.
