I'm in a Ph.D. program in a non-clinical psychology specialization (let's just call it "OtherPsychology"). I wanted to go into clinical or counseling, but took the advice of everyone around me who said OtherPsychology would be better for me, pay more, make me happier, etc. I have just finished my 4th year in OtherPsychology and I am really miserable. I want to transition into doing clinical or counseling work. It doesn't seem feasible to drop out now and apply to a clinical or counseling program because (1) I have no one to write me recommendations, (2) I have no clinical work, internships or research, (3) I'd need to take the GRE and Subject GRE and (4) I'm almost in my mid-thirties and want to get out of graduate school sooner rather than later. I learned that there are respecialization programs if you have a Ph.D. in non-clinical psychology. If I hussle, I can finish my OtherPsychology Ph.D. in three more years. I need to take my qualifying exams and write a dissertation. Would such a program be the best bet for me? Ultimately, my career goal is to do therapy with clients and, maybe assessment work (though I don't have a complete understanding of what assessment work would be like).
