Clinical Therapist Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Clinical Therapist in Phoenix:
"Difficult to Pay the Bills."
This career is very rewarding, challenging, and fulfilling. However, as a single mom, going into debt to get my MA in Counseling (60 credit degree with 1 year, 20 hour a week internship) while working full time, to only make 2k more was difficult. I pay $500 a month for health insurance for my son and I, and the coverage is poor. I love my job, but the pay and benefits are terrible. If you go into Counseling, get your LAC right away, so you can be a LPC in 2 years. Slightly more money can be made in a well run private practice or working in management. This career is about purpose... Be prepared to not make much money.
