What they don't tell you is that you almost never counsel clients in the office, you have to go to each school or house to do your job. On top of that, you need to add crazy amount of paper work because NOTHING is on a computer, you have to hand write everything. Therapists work from 45 to 50 hours a week to complete their work, including weekends. Supervisors only care about meeting quota and requirements to maintain state funding, and clients are secondary. Benefits are good, but salary is low compared to other places in the area.
Pros: hours are flexible and you can make your own schedule.
Low pay, non paid overtime
