You will prepare and submit a term paper on Interview with an LMFT. Your paper should be a minimum of 1250 words in length. The entire course took me four years to complete. I intended on grasping and partaking in lessons and projects as much as I could. As a result, my academic years at Stanford University were helpful and supportive. I learned that one creates his or her own experience at school.
All through my adolescent life, my parents, along with some of my friends, told me I was gifted in comprehending the problems of others and offering awareness and responses. This was the main source of my interest in counseling. Also, I intended on going back to school in early 2002 to earn an advanced degree in psychology and counseling. I had not fully realized my academic and professional plans during this period. However, I knew an advanced degree would enable me to operate individually and avoid being employed. Since my young adult years, I knew I was not “destined” to work under the direct supervision of a boss. As a result, psychotherapy presented an opportunity and a course for me to work solely. In the process, I can set up my own source of revenue and an enjoyable professional life.
I chose to specialize in marriage and family therapy since it was my second profession. Two careers mean I did not have enough time to attend all lessons. As a result, I realized that I wanted to be an independent counselor with her own business, I had to get a license. Also, I realized that pursuing a Ph.D. demanded a lot more time at the university and extra medical training than an advanced degree.
I am an LMFT, which is a professional avenue of therapy and counseling. This interest developed after working with people struggling with problems involving emotional management. I realized that such individuals needed skills that can aid them in dealing with overwhelming feelings and sensitive behavior. Such behavior and emotions apply to such individuals or people they know or relate to. For instance, self-harm and suicide are cases of the effects of overwhelming feelings and sensitive behavior of one’s self.
