Clinical Psychologist at Atlanta VA Medical Center

“[The school’s] generalist program provides training in all competencies of the profession. [During my] internship, my supervisors noted my well-rounded abilities and in-depth skills.”

 

Provides Individual and Group Psychotherapy to Diverse Veteran Populations


Dr. Tanja Ketisch took a non-traditional path to a psychology career. She worked as a clinical laboratory scientist for 13 years before going back to school to study psychology. Ketisch earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University in 2014.


Ketisch is a United States Air Force Reserve veteran with 14 years of service. During her time in the military, she received two Air Force Commendation Medals, an Air Force Achievement Medal, a National Defense Service Medal, a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, an Air Force Longevity Service Medal and two Armed Forces Reserve Medals.

 

Her military service led to a position at the Atlanta VA Medical Center, where she works as a clinical psychologist. “[I deliver] evidenced-based individual and group psychotherapy to diverse veteran populations, conduct psychosocial assessments and complete intake assessment reports,” she said. Ketisch also completes Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) assessments using the Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale. Her work also involves conducting suicide risk assessments and providing crisis intervention. She works closely with her Veterans to develop individualized, strength-based recovery and treatment plans in order to offer them the best care.

Ketisch chose to attend Argosy University, Atlanta because she sought a career focused on human interaction. “I was looking for a new career where I could still help others and experience a more direct interaction with patients,” she stated. “That is why I decided to pursue a degree in psychology. I chose Argosy University because of the practitioner-scholar model of training and because I wanted a more practical approach to learning the profession.”

She appreciated the wide range of therapeutic approaches and assessment courses available at Argosy University. “I feel that the generalist program provides training in all competencies of the profession,” she added. “[During my] internship, my supervisors noted my well-rounded abilities and in-depth skills.”

 

She’s proud to have published an article and two book reviews in the American Journal of Family Therapy. Ketisch is also a member of the American Psychological Association.

Ketisch added that the faculty of Argosy University were helpful and professional experts who made themselves available outside of the classroom to assist students. She adds that current students should draw on their strengths and not be afraid to ask for help. “Having a strong support network both in and out of the school environment is imperative,” she said. “Working together as a team throughout schooling was crucial.”
