I’m in a bind. Long story short, I have been working with mental health adolescence on separate occasions such as, case managements with at-risk youth, foster care, ABA, now one of the highest paid tech at a psychiatry facility. I want to go for my LPC or LCSW, but is that the only next step I can take my career up a notch?

I am an LPCC and love my degree and credentials. However I moved to a new state and the LMFT is much more “popular”/in demand here. My suggestion is if you want to be a therapist/counselor and provide direct service, research your options and what may be “more in demand” in your state. LPCC/LPC, LICSW, LMFT, or even Clinical Psychologist. If a certain philosophy speaks to you, go that route because interest will outweigh anything else in this field since burnout and turnover are so high.

Those would be great options, or you might also look into mental health consulting. I'm not sure what degree or certifications you might need to do that, but it might be another way to level up in your career.

I would recommend LCSW. They are very much in demand from a practice standpoint.

I definitely think you should go for the LCSW, it's a good way to stand out

Hi! I am working on a new business idea but can’t get anywhere because I’m working too many hours (60+). I can’t quit working entirely because I need the health insurance (I have five kids and I’m a single Mom). Any ideas on a company I can work for where I can work ~35 hours a week so I can get the health insurance but still have time to work on my startup? I’m a marketer with 20+ years experience and an MBA but happy to do anything. Thank you in advance for your help!!
