One of the first question people ask when they start considering a career is how much people working in that profession typically earn. While salary is certainly not the only variable you should consider when planning for your future career, it is definitely something that will probably play a role in your decision.
Clinical psychology is one of the largest employment sectors in psychology. The APA research office reports that more than 35 percent of working psychologists are clinicians. One 2000 survey conducted by the American Psychological Association found that the average salary for a licensed clinical psychologist was just under $88,000, but typical salaries can vary depending on a number of factors including where you are working and how much experience you have.
