I just had one little comment - I haven't been watching Babble super closely, so I'm a little out of what this thread is about. But I just wanted to say that I don't think a degree necessarily can tell you how qualified someone is. My previous therapist was a Ph.D. psychologist, regarded as an expert in trauma, which was my issue, had several teaching positions at area hospitals and gave lots of lectures. Yet we spent most of my sessions talking about nothing at all important, or about him or his daughter, and sometimes he talked so much I couldn't get a word in edgewise.

My current T, who is wonderful, has a master's in social work. He is an amazing T. He doesn't work under supervision and he actually does some training of the trainee Ph.D. students that work at the counseling center where I go.

So a degree's not everything where qualifications go. A lot I think has to do with personality of the T and also the client and how they click.
