I'll hopefully be starting an MSW/MFT/MHC program in the fall, with the intention of opening up a practice practice as soon as I'm able following graduation. My wife has spent the better part of the last 3 years raising our kids and will again be looking for work in a few months. So we have the issue of getting her work and my program to end up in the same place. But this is our not my chief concern -- I'll be applying all over creation for programs, as will she for work. Here's the thing: We don't know where we're going to want to live when I'm done with my program. And from the research I've done (random clicking on Psychology Today profiles and the most-reviewed people in various cities on Yelp), it seems like *many* people who went the MHC/MFT/MSW route opened up shop in the same state where they went to school. My main question is: I'm guessing that most people end up in the same state they went to school because schools (at least the accredited ones) tailor their programs to make sure they meet state licensure requirements. How risky is it to do my program and one state and open up my practice in another? Of course different states have different licensure requirements in terms of how many hours you need and when you need to do them. But what about things like multiple interpretations in different states of different program requirements? Thank you for your time.
