Science & Medicine:Social Sciences
So, you want to be a therapist? What you should know before making the leap.
Ever wonder what it would take for you to become a therapist? Some may think, "I'm good at listening and giving advice, therefore I should become a therapist."
WELL......you are in for a....BIG....surprise.
Get ready because becoming a therapist is INTENSE work. I don't want to scare you with this episode, I WANT TO PREPARE YOU. I want you to know things I wish I had known when I started my own journey into this career.
A special thank-you to Myra Garcia, LCSW. She is a therapist at the El Paso Child Guidance Center (where I work as well). She supervises and consults with clinicians in our agency. She has experience doing therapy in New York and El Paso. She specializes in trauma work and is certified in Child Parent Psychotherapy. She also teaches graduate social work students at NMSU. Her passion for social work and therapy shines through in her excellent work at our agency and in her advocacy for others.
In two weeks, our episode will feature two Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Associates (LMFT-As) who will talk about their journeys in becoming therapists. They will speak specifically about their experiences in grad school, training, and how they work with clients. If you are interested in working with families and couples, that episode will be for you!
