In California, I can't call myself a psychologist.
Hi Dr. Lindblom,
You are correct that you can not call or refer to yourself as a psychologist. That is a protect term. You can designate doctor since you have a doctorate degree.
If you have further questions, please contact our Licensing Unit at (916) 263-2699, ext. 2 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
