Amanda’s Answer

Hi there! There's a bit of schooling, but you can do it!
Complete a bachelors degree in a related field, such as psychology, behavioral health, counseling or mental health. After that...
Complete a Master's degree, and after that, a Doctorate! Sadly, a Master's degree does not qualify you to become a child psychologist.
A Ph.D takes about 4-7 years to complete.
After this, you'll complete psychology licensure, meaning you'll have clinical hours, ranging from 1,500-6,000 hours, depending on the state you are in. Then you will become board certified by passing an exam!

The first step would be to get an undergraduate degree in Psychology. You will likely need a master's degree in psychology to practice.
