Hi Dulce - Being a "psychologist" is a little broad. There are numerous jobs in the field of psychology but most people generally think of a psychological counselor when they are considering a career in psychology.

The average psychology salary is about $69,000 per year. I used this site as a reference: http://www.bls.gov/ooh/life-physical-and-social-science/psychologists.htm

If you are interested in finding out about the other opportunities in the field of psychology, you can check out this site as well: http://www.onetonline.org/find/quick?s=psychologist. This will give you a better understanding of the differences between jobs.

After looking at this information, let me know if you have any additional questions.

Good Luck!
