Dear Hiring Manager,

I am writing to apply for the position of Psychologist – Ph.D., as advertised on your website. With my qualifications and experience in psychology research and clinical practice, I believe I can make an immediate and positive contribution to your team.

I hold a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of California, where I focused my research on the effects of trauma on children and adolescents. Throughout this program and during internships, I developed strong skills in diagnosing mental health disorders, providing appropriate treatments, conducting assessments and psychotherapy sessions with individuals and families, as well as developing and implementing evidence-based interventions.

In addition to my degree, I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist in the State of California, with over four years of experience in clinical practice.

My work has also included oversight of clinical interns and development of seminars for professional organizations.

I am confident in my ability to use my skills and knowledge to further the mission of your organization. I look forward to exploring opportunities with you further and welcome the chance to discuss how I can be a valuable asset to your team.
