I don't know if this will fit, but I was an LICSW and recently ran across a neuroscience breakthrough called Higher Brain Living about a year ago. They were looking for people to join their national team. I was so amazed by what I found that I left my 30-year private practice. Your educational background is OK. I can send a link to free HBL training videos. And I made two testimonial videos I can send as well. If you get interested, I would love to talk about it! Contact me at
