Are Clinical Psychologists Limited to Only Clinical Psychology?

Question by Ello G: Are clinical psychologists limited to only clinical psychology?
Say… If I became a clinical psychologist, but wanted to switch to a counseling psychologist, or industrial psychologist, etc. Could I make the switch right there? Or would I have to go back for those degrees?

In most states (though not all), psychologists’ licensing is GENERAL. In other words, whether you have trained as a clinical, counseling, or I/O during your doctoral work, you all get the same license – a generic license as a PSYCHOLOGIST (no specializations). The difference comes in the way in which you market your services, which should be based on your training (i.e., those who trained in counseling psychology call themselves “counseling psychologists”).

Salary for Counseling Psychologist?

Question by gooner23: Salary for Counseling Psychologist?
Can someone please tell me what the salary is for a counseling psychologist? I would like to know the salary for it with each type of degree as well. Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate.

I have my heart set on being a counseling psychologist, but I’ve heard mixed stories on the salary of it. Some tell me that it’s about 40k a year and it sucks. Some tell me they make a lot, 100k if you’re really good. And some tell me it just depends on where you work and how big your client base is.

I’m going for a Master’s degree, and I’m estimating my student loans after college to be somewhere between 50-70k, so I’m kind of worried.

How Many Graduate Credits to Be a Counseling Psychologist?

Question by me!: How many graduate credits to be a counseling psychologist?
I want to get a master’s in counseling psychology. I know some schools differ, but for the most part, how many credits would I need in order to get a master’s?
If I would go for a PhD, how many credits would I need?

Best answer:

Answer by David
The most common pathway is to do a PhD in Psychology which depending on the programs takes 5-7 years full-time including the internship year. There are some other pathways too, the most common one being a PsyD (4-7 years full-time), but all of them are doctoral, which means that 4 years full-time is the minimum. (The number of credits is somewhat irrelevant since different universities have a different number of credits per year.)
