Clinical Psychologist at the Navy Training Support Center; Performs Suitability for Service Evaluations

Ashley Shenberger, LT/MSC/USN and Licensed Clinical Psychologist, is working as a clinical psychologist for the United States Navy. She entered the Navy to complete her pre-doctoral internship and is an active duty officer. Ashley explains that prior to her time in the Navy, she completed practica at a number of different settings—all of which helped her to grow as a clinician.

As a clinical psychologist at the Navy Training Support Center, Great Lakes, Ashley performs suitability for service evaluations, education and training for staff, and psychoeducational groups for recruits. “Every day presents a new challenge,” she states. “It’s all about overcoming the hurdle of the day, week, or month.”

Ashley says that finishing her internship at the top of her class was a huge accomplishment. She recently completed an assignment performing assessment and selection for Marines who want to become embassy security guards. “It was an amazing experience as both a clinician and an officer.”

Ashley chose to attend Argosy University, Chicago because she was excited about the clinical experiences she’d gain as a student. “The faculty was thorough and supportive, which allowed me to grow. [My education] has given me more confidence in my skills and abilities.”

Ashley, who in 2013 earned a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University, Chicago recommends that veterans who are returning to school work hard and ask for help when it’s needed. “The faculty and staff are there to support you and you never need to feel alone in this endeavor.”
