I am a bit conflicted by your question in that I don't know which one I should be answering. In order to get you PhD you would need a bachelor's and a masters degree in most cases. In others you could be pursing a master's all while working to obtain your PhD. I hope this was helpful.

Nine-to-10 years; 4 years for the BS and at least 5 years for a PsyD or PhD in clinical psychology. Are you aware there are master's level social workers and family therapists and Licensed Profwssio al Counselors? These programs for grad school are less competitive than doctoral programs. Good luck!
