  1. Hello! First time poster here looking to get opinions/advice from any professionals in the field or individuals who were in a similar situation as I am now. Just a heads up—this is a long post. I am a 25-year-old currently residing in the Washington, D.C./Maryland area who graduated from American University in 2014 with a Bachelors M.A. degree in Psychology. Since then, I have worked in several fields. I was an associate ABA therapist conducting one-on-one tutoring and trials with young autistic individuals. I also worked in content/marketing within the start-up environment. My most
  2. Greetings all!—I am a new member here and I was wondering if anybody may be able to provide advice with respect to my situation. Are mental health counseling programs very competitive—esp. compared to social work programs? I am specifically interested in CUNY-Hunter College's program but worry I don't have enough experience aside from my 5-month research stint and three years at the New York State Psychiatric Institute, as well as work at Columbia University Irving Medical Center (also as an office assistant like at NYSPI). Because I am in a very poor financial situation, I cannot afford
  3. Hi! I was recently accepted to Lewis & Clark College for counseling and am interviewing at Portland State University this week. I haven't been accepted to PSU yet, obviously, so this might end up being a moot point, but I strongly prefer Lewis & Clark and wanted to see if anyone has any input. My main areas of concern are: Cost - L&C is more expensive by around $10,000 total, but from what I've heard from both PSU and Lewis & Clark is that they are more supportive of working during the program. PSU discourages working and students who have worked during the program ha
  4. Apparently I am a moron and didn't realize "clinical" doesn't necessarily mean "therapy." I was informed of this discrepancy in my thinking by a kind redditor who quickly disabused me of the notion that the easiest path towards becoming a therapist is to pursue an MSW. Guys, I don't know what to do. I feel so stupid. I really love the social justice aspect of MSW programs, and I am interested in exploring the root causes of societal problems, but... I don't know. Is becoming a therapist with your MSW really that hard to do? I know you have to complete many hours of supervision in order to get
  5. Hi there!! ? I am looking into doing an MSW( and maybe the MSW/JD) at York or U of T, or the MEd in Counselling Psychology at OISE !!! I am looking into these programs w the hopes of providing anti-oppressive, feminist therapy in the future. I am also really interested in working with incarcerated folks. I am finishing up an honours in women's studies, and did my research on first-person narrative as a tool of restorative justice and personal healing. I'm looking for current or past students to discuss the benefits of each program! Some questions to start, How did you like the program? Strengt
  6. Curious to see if there are any other Lewis & Clark Marriage & Family Therapy applicants on here who have heard back. I was just offered an interview yesterday! I'm not sure what to expect. Anyone know how group interviews generally work in such a program?
  7. Hi everyone, I applied to get my master's in occupational therapy for the fall 2018 term. I applied to: NOVA southeastern gannon university springfield college western New England university sacred heart university Indiana state univeristy univeristy of st Augustine west coast university university of Southern California shenandoah univeristy I got interviews at NOVA and Shenandoah, but I have not heard anything from any other schools. I was wondering if anyone has heard from these schools whether it is just interviews or deci
  8. Hi everyone! I'm getting started and planning ahead for the fall when I'll be applying to PSU's Counselor Education program, and I was wondering if anyone had any words of advice -- I applied to the PSU MSW program last year and wasn't accepted, which actually turned out to be fine because it made me reflect on exactly what program to pursue, and I've settled on an MFT Counselor track in the Graduate School of Education at PSU. That said, the application process last year was so stressful and it was obviously tough to be rejected, so I'm trying to come back much stronger this year.
  9. Hi Everyone! Just a few days until the application deadline for my MFT program. Is anyone else applying to MFT programs? Any last minute tips on applications or interviews? Thanks so much & Good luck to everyone!
  10. Has anyone gotten interviews or admission decisions from any of the Cal State Counseling programs? If you have applied in previous years when did you hear back? CSUN - MFT Program - I applied in Jan, got an interview email on 1/30, and interviewed on 2/7. The interview email said that "selection letters will be mailed by May 1st" but I am realllly hoping to get an answer before then. Thanks so much & good luck to everyone!
  11. Hi everyone, I've got a question. I'm currently studying psychology which was my academic entry choice because a year ago I still didn't know how I could monetize my interests in the human mind and behaviors. Recently I've been doing research on addiction therapy, and I came across this article: https://addictionresource.com/treatment/milieu-therapy/ and I got really interested because that seems like it could help people on a larger scale (I'm currently thinking- addict cities, a bit excessive I presume) than one-on-one therapy. It also touches other areas I'm really interested in - soci
  12. Hi, all. I know this is a looong explanation; please bear with me, because I desperately need advice! **Background: Got BA in Psych, then worked as a community support provider for a year at a MHC for adults with mental illness. Fall 2016, I applied for a MSW program and got in. I've been at school for 4 weeks (I'm no longer at the job). Problem: Up until spring of 2017, which was AFTER my program accepted me, I wanted to be a therapist. I am introverted but (IMO) good at helping people work through their problems, and I generally enjoy doing so. But I often found my MHC job to be in
  13. Well, can't say I'm surprised that I got denied into grad schools this time around. It seemed almost impossible to try and compile an outstanding CDCAS application when I already had so much going on with my schoolwork in undergrad. Anyways, for all the people like myself who are feeling down, just wanted to put it out there that Karen George at Chicago Speech Therapy is hiring for people like us! I just interviewed and was BLOWN AWAY. I honestly would've never expected this opportunity to exist, especially because on their posting on indeed it was for an SLPA and I thought for sure I didn't h
  14. Hello everyone, First time poster. I've recently earned my BS in Psych and was pretty sure on my path after this milestone, but things aren't quite as clear as they were while I was still in school. I want to work in a field where I am most needed, not in terms of position openings but service to the population. I love working with children and my feeling is that I can do the most good within a school, and in all honesty that's where I'd like to work. Teaching isn't quite for me so I've narrowed down my options to a school psychologist, counselor, or social worker. What would be most
  15. Hello, I will be attending school for an I/O Psychology master's degree in the near future. If possible, I would like to do mental health counseling as well, on a part-time basis. My question is: After completing a master's degree in I/O Psych, what is my best option to prepare myself to do this? Instead of completing an entirely separate degree, is there additional or supplemental schooling I can complete? A friend of mine mentioned a certificate might be possible. I'm just exploring my other options. Thank you! Nate
  16. I am struggling to decide what school/program I should look for that will give me a degree to do therapy and counseling. For the longest time I planned on getting a degree in clinical psychology, but realized how competitive this degree is, especially in North Carolina. I am asking you all for recommendation on degree and schools where I could get a masters degree in some sort of counseling or therapy. Thank you, advice is greatly appreciated.
  17. In September I will be starting my 4th year at a university in Ontario taking Psychology. I want to do primarily therapy - not so much interested in research, but its not a closed option. 90 average throughout university so far, honours thesis and undergraduate research experience. Volunteering at a seniors centre. I am taking my GRE in September but I have NO idea where I even want to go to graduate school. I don't even really understand the difference between clinical and counselling psychology and which is better for what I want to do. All I hear is that clinical opens more doors/
