their patients resting on their shoulders. They’re often the first ones to
notice signs of instability in someone’s life and act as an important safety

must meet strict guidelines outlined by the governing board of each state. In
California, the regulations clearly say “Any agency in the department… [can]
without a hearing deny an application.” Because of the nature in which it is
conducted, getting your psychology license denied can make you feel extremely
helpless. However, there is a way to get it back. By filing an official appeal,
you can petition the board to reinstate your license. As part of this process,
applicants can provide a statement and any supporting documentation which may
help overturn their case. To help prepare you for this and avoid under or

career back, we implore you to do a little extra digging. Believe us – We’ve
seen it all. With Unlock Legal by your side, you vastly increase your chances
for reinstatement. But, there’s a catch. You need to act fast. The longer you
wait to get the appeals process started, the lower the odds. Professional
licenses have very specific deadlines, and if they aren’t met, it diminishes
your chances considerably.
What kind of
issues will lead to a Psychology certification denial?
license can be revoked or denied for a number of reasons. Most commonly, it’s
for being convicted of a crime. Whether or not it is directly related to your
practice, the board has the authority to deem you unfit to work within the
profession. The board even has the ability to deny your license for “dishonest
conduct” or “lack of good moral character.” The language alone in which these
rules are written leaves a lot of room for interpretation. That’s where we come
in. Unlock Legal can help you build a case that addresses each of the board’s
hesitations, and shows you in a different light than what regulators think they
know about your situation.
