I think that's wrong, Garrett. As I understand it, she does have a PhD and
another degree in counseling. That doesn't make her a physician or a
psychologist, but counseling _is_ related to what she does on the radio.
Now, what kind of educational institution grants degrees in counseling (but
not in psychology) is another matter. It may be the sort of place that
advertises on the inside of matchbook covers.
