Hello all! So, I am an undergrad working towards a BS in psychology; I was originally majoring in Marketing but after talking with my family psychologist whom I've known for years, as well as two therapists who recommended I look into therapy as a career I chose to switch majors and I never looked back! Last summer I started working for an MFT who I have learned a lot from, from his work I began to realize that I could be very interested in becoming an LMFT, so I have begun looking at schools that are accredited and I have found a couple so far (SDSU,UCSD,USD, Bethel Seminary, & Chicago Professional). I was wondering how employers view these schools in general. I do have connections to faculty at SDSU and Bethel seminary for letters of rec. if I play my cards right Before I ask my questions, here are my interests for a career and my dream scenario so far: Working with people eventually making >$100kyr. becoming a therapist/counsler Helping people heal Dream Scenario: Get my masters in MFT, then practice for a couple years in general, then maybe pursue Med school for psychiatry. (I am not pursuing Med school now because I feel more interested in therapy than the medical aspect and because my GPA is quite low in undergrad and will be even with improvement, I am a third year with a 2.75 and hope to graduate with a 3.0-3.2). That being said, Should I pursue a masters in MFT or just clinical psych? (I do not wish to get a PsyD) If I want to be a therapist for couples and families can I do so without an MFT? I stumbled across another possible route for me, a masters in Health Admin MHA it seems to have a positive outlook and great growth rate plus strong salary; are they needed and respected in the field? Is the transition from therapist to psychiatrist a logical and reasonable goal? Thanks so much for reading, any advice is welcome!
