About this title


It takes hope to achieve your dreams—hope and faith. Montgomery C. Prescod never lost hold of either.

Born in the Caribbean country of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Prescod discovered grief at an early age. The death of his mother when he was just thirteen deeply affected the young man—and that tragedy was made worse when his father moved to a different island and left Prescod in the care of his loving grandmother.

Determined to be the man his mother knew he’d become, Prescod graduated from high school with honors and immigrated to the United States in 1986, where he spent ten years struggling to survive in the bustle of New York City.

Prescod might still be performing odd jobs on New York streets had he not enlisted in the US Army. That decision led to twenty-one years of service and the opportunity to become a skilled and caring psychologist. It was a chance he seized with both hands despite all obstacles life threw his way.

The Making of a Professional recounts Prescod’s remarkable journey and the faith that bolstered him throughout difficult times.

About the Author:

Born in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Montgomery C. Prescod earned his general certificate of education with honors from St. Martin’s secondary school—a considerable achievement for an orphaned child in 1984.

In December of 1986, Prescod immigrated to the United States, where he spent ten years working odd jobs in New York City. He served twenty-one years in the US Army, and is still serving with the rank of major.

Prescod holds a bachelor of science in engineering science with a specialization in electrical engineering. He earned a master of science in management from Thomas Edison University and a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Walden University. In 2016, he graduated from Capella University with a doctor of philosophy in psychology.

Today, Prescod provides individual, couples, and family therapy to adults and adolescents. Working from a cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, and interpersonal approach, the goal of his work is to assist individuals identify and change maladaptive life patterns (thoughts and/or behaviors), and develop a more balanced approach to oneself, others, and their surroundings. With these approaches, Prescod assists in developing more satisfying relationships to improve one’s ability to better manage stress. Prescod works with people experiencing relationship issues, anxiety, and/or depression, and employs Mindfulness techniques to provide effective individualized treatment.
