I am Anita Mihecoby, a Comanche tribal member, an early career California licensed psychologist in private practice, and the new SIP Mentorship Program Chair. Mentorship is a vital key to professional success and feeling supported through your academic journey and early career. I know the value of my mentors throughout my journey and continue to seek avenues for mentorship. I participated in APA’s Div. 17 Counseling Psychology 2013 Leadership Academy and had the opportunity to benefit from an organized mentorship program. I am also a member of R2G (Reservation to Graduation) and enjoy the Indigenous culture tailored program since 2015. My goal is to offer my experience and value for positive relationships to strengthen our SIP community, pipeline, and move forward in a good way!
