I am trying to decide between Masters in Counseling vs. MSW. I am looking at doing an online degree either way. In the future I am more interested in working in private practice/therapy, and not so much with the government; HOWEVER, I do plan to move in the future, so reciprocity is important as well. As far as curriculum is concerned, the Counseling curriculum seems so much more interesting to me than SW curriculum (which I think is very important when doing an online program). I do not want to limit my job opportunities, but as I said I am more interested in working in private practice/therapy. Can anyone shed light on any of the following issues: -Transferring LPC license and/or LCSW license between different states? Difficulties or not they have encountered either way? -Pros or cons of either license? -Reimbursement by insurance companies/overall salaries? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
