Being licensed psychotherapist ( mental health counseling ) requires a master's degree , experience (2-3 years , depending on the state , in California is two years post- graduate supervised clinical use ) and a passing score on the exam. < Br > MedlinePlus I suggest you explore the Master of Social Work degree , allowing you to be a psychotherapist licensed in all 50 states . It is a flexible measurement and lets you make many job titles , in case you tire of counseling in-the- chair. Ironically , you can not lawyer with a masters in psychology . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus There are other types of Licensed Counselors ( Marriage and Family Therapy , Counselor Licensed Mental Health ) , but with a MFT , who are trained to do a specific job that an RSU . There are more job opportunities for TSM . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus To explore what degree is right for you - go to the workplace as a monster , ( federal government website work ) and type in LCSW ( licensed clinical social worker ) and then the other titles , and see which has the greatest number of jobs available . In my case, it was overwhelmingly obvious that you should get the MSW degree . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus An outstanding college Social Work at the University of Berkeley CA is . Of course, there are others. MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Best of luck to you !
