Can I be self employed with a Masters in Counseling? Also if I work for an organization, what is the wage?
Can a masters in counseling (with an undergrad of psychology major) be qualification for mental health or family services?
I know I will have to look into things for my area, but just wondering if anyone knows or has experience with this Masters degree?
