I know people that are therapists and they say it is rewarding work. Most of the therapists I know are in private practice so they also studied business since if you go that route you are a business owner as well.
You do not have to go the private practice route and can find jobs in the mental health field with the licenses mentioned above.
Best wishes in your journey!
https://www.mft-license.com/licenserequirements list the license requirements by state. In TN, "marriage and family therapists are known as Licensed Marital and Family Therapists, or LMFTs. They are licensed by the Board of Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marital and Family Therapists and Licensed Pastoral Therapists.
Permanent licensure depends on attainment of a graduate degree, passing scores on two examinations, and completion of supervised work experience. A candidate may be granted a temporary license after graduating from a master’s program; this will allow them to complete their practice requirement."
