Being licensed at the M.A. level is similar in a few ways, and very, very different in others. Some of the similarities and differences also vary by state. The level and type of training is very different between Ph.D. and M.A. levels. So make sure to do plenty of research before you decide to attend one type of program over the other. There are some threads on the differences, I think, which you may be able to find using the search function on the forum.
If you're primarily interested in conducting supportive therapy, crisis intervention, and case management, you may also want to think about Master's in Social Work programs. These are, on average, much less competitive in terms of entrance requirements than clinical Ph.D. programs.
I hope you don't take this too personally, because I mean it as general advice and really know nothing about you at all-- But *if* you ultimately decide that you can do all the things that you want to do as a licensed master's-level clinician or social worker, rather than as a clinical psychologist, then this might be the best route for you to take whether you get into a Ph.D. program or not. Doctoral level training is difficult, stressful, and (sometimes) expensive. Master's level training can also be all of the above, but if you hate the schooling then you're done in two years, rather than six. So be sure to consider all your options, and if you choose a Ph.D. program-- Make sure you're doing it because you WANT to (because you want the flexibility, because you love research, because you believe in the training model, whatever), not simply because you were able to get in.
