I'm a doctoral student in clinical psychology and work for a nonprofit and I'm in therapy - in fact, every therapist I know is, because this work can be incredibly triggering and draining and stressful and it's essential to deal with that so that it doesn't affect your clients. And supervision is rather like therapy.

But, what I really wanted to say is that it's OK not to have an undergrad degree in psychology - I didn't, mine is in natural science. In my experience, they look for people from different backgrounds who can bring different perspectives to the program.

Good luck!
