Marriage and Family Therapist

Odds of Getting In

Fortunately for you, marriages are dissolving at a record rate, and kids are more messed up than ever before! Okay, so the second part may be a bit subjective, but the fact is that the number of people seeking professional advice and treatment for their personal relationships is growing rapidly. There is no longer as much of a stigma attached to seeing a therapist. You don't have to worry that people will think you are "crazy" (even if you are). It has become not-that-different from having your regular checkup with a general physician.

Because people are taking more care of their minds and hearts these days, opportunities abound, and you should have no problem setting up shop.
