Mentoring Program

The SCPA Mentoring Program matches early career psychologists with experienced psychologists who will assist them with practice and/or treatment issues. The mentors volunteer their time; there is no charge for this program. Mentors and mentorees usually meet in person or on the phone; they may meet once a month with phone calls as needed or more often. The Coordinator contacts the early career psychologist to find out what they are looking for help with and if they have any specific requests regarding the mentor's practice orientation, etc. and then finds someone they think will be a good match.

Legal Plan

Dr. Bruce Hillowe, a mental health attorney who formerly practiced as a psychologist, offers a Legal Plan to SCPA members. The cost is $175 for the year and entitles you to an hour of consultation with Dr. Hillowe. You also get a reduced fee for any additional time you may need. Members who have participated said he was a great help when they called him with a legal question.

Website Design, Hosting, SEO, Administration Services

Discounted Rates available for many services from SCPA's website administrator

Eric Larson is a web design professional who has been in the business for over 16 years. His expertise encompasses an array of web based services including: website design/redesign/creation/maintenance, website hosting, email campaigns, social media marketing, and more. He works with clients of all sizes - from large corporations to sole proprietorships, psychological associations to individual psychologists. In fact, if you've visited the SCPA website, you've seen an example of his work.

Eric offers a discounted rate for his services to current SCPA members. Pricing starts at $15/month which includes managed hosting and site updates (and even eventually upgrades/redesigns) and most of the services mentioned above. Need a new website or redesign? Pricing for that starts at $500. If you're wondering about the "starting" qualifier, good question. That price is for most basic websites. Creating/updating websites based on a CMS, such as Wordpress, Joomla, etc, may cost a little more since they can be a little more time intensive, sometimes requiring a little more work, depending on what type of work is needed. Each job will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but Eric will do his best to work with you to keep his prices as close to, if not at the "starting" prices mentioned.

If you're interested in, or have any questions about website services, would like to inquire about pricing or simply want to ask for advice on "digital marketing" or anything else web-related, please contact Eric at eric@iadinc.com.  He's always happy to field questions from SCPA members.
