Correction: “You are a psychologist, and your job is put a positive spin around everything that’s seemingly bad.”
Try: “You are a psychologist, so your job is to find the silver lining in bad situations.”

Strictly yes, but you might consider: As a psychologist, your job is to positively spin anything seemingly negative.

Get rid of the comma.
You don't need an "a" before "positive spin", depending on what you mean. Consider if adding an "a" before "positive spin" will convey your meaning more or less perfectly.
Though grammatically correct, "...seemingly bad" might be a confusing way to end the sentence. I recommend "...that seems bad" (or something similarly more final-sounding).

'a' is needed before 'positive'. OK otherwise.
