    wages for psyd or psychologist

  2. Interesting. More income is indicated in rural populated states for psychologists than in more densely populated areas. I was told in graduate school that to have a busy practice you must establish yourself in at least a 100,000 populated city. Has that changed. I’m guessing that in the rural areas there is also the “supply and demand factor” at work too. In San Diego county there are over 10,000 mental health practitioners or more. I doubt you will see this in Idaho and Wyoming or Colorado (even in the larger cities like Denver, etc.)
