What an important question! There are definitely pros and cons to both. We’re going to answer today's question with the point of view of someone who has just gotten licensed, or is almost there.
And for all of you in the process of trying to gain hours for licensure, we’ll have a separate episode addressing earning your hours so stay tuned for that.
Helping me answer today’s question is Hatty Lee, a licensed mft practicing near Los Angeles CA. She is the founder of Oak and Stone Marriage and Family Therapy, Inc and she’s a gifted writer, and she uses this gift so well on her instagram account (@hattyjlee).
