How do I get experience towards being a Therapist/counseling with only a BA in Psychology?!
I'm saving money for graduate school, I'm about to get my BA this 2017 Spring and I can't find any experience towards my field of study being a licensed professional counselor. #therapy #therapists #counseling-psychology #mental-health-counseling #family-therapy
There are several community counseling agencies that will allow you to do case management (paraprofessional ) under a licensed counselor. You can use this as counseling experience.
As a psychology major, I would also encourage you to become a psychologist. The salary is higher and it is a more respected field of behavior health.
Have you tried reaching out to any professors to ask about internships or research opportunities? Sometimes they can point you toward opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. You may also want to try to talk to a career counselor at your university. They may have connections with potential internships or even paid positions that can help you gain the experience you are seeking.
Hope this helps! Wishing you all the best in your professional endeavors.
