Getting licensed. It often feels like the final "hoop" for people who have gotten a Master's degree in Psychology. Whether you are pursuing licensure in California, Washington, or across the United States, the process can be very anxiety provoking.
Know that you are not alone!
Years ago, after failing my first exam by 1 point, and feeling completely alone, I started a free online study group to connect with other people going through the process. It was the most validating experience to realize that I wasn't alone, that my thoughts and feelings were normal, and to find support.
Do you have support going through your exam study process?
While the study group has morphed and changed since 2005 when I first started it, it remains active, and supportive. We are now located on Facebook. While the group started out for MFTs in California, the word has spread and has touched LCSWs, LPCs, MFCCs, MFTs, MHCs, and other designations from across the United States.
What can you expect?
A supportive environment to ask questions. No, people will not be sharing what is "on the exam" that would be illegal, but they will be helping one another prepare for the process, answering questions about study materials, and just providing emotional support.
This is a place that is focused on moving forward, finding solutions, and being generally nice. So, if you are an awesome pre-licensed therapist who is nice, and wants support- come join us! Just click here and request to "Join" and we will get you set-up ASAP!
