Hi Bryanna,

To become a therapist, you will need a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in counseling, marriage and family therapy, or clinical social work.

Jeanne recommends the following next steps:

  • Look up your local hospital and/or community mental health center and contact them to see if you can volunteer to get some experience in the field.
  • Go to your school counselor and ask about opportunities to volunteer.
  • Go to your school counselor and ask if there are any classes you can take now.
