I am a licensed MFT seeking a doctoral degree mainly to increase my clinical knowledge and possibly teaching. I have been practicing as a therapist for 20 years and have a family and other obligations that preclude me from attending a traditional APA psychology program so I'll probably wind up with a distance learning degree such as CSU or Capella. I have no interest in testing. In my humble opinion, I think the APA stranglehold on the psychology field is monopolistic and narrow minded, as a vast number of the LP's that I know provide counseling but have sometimes little education, experience, or the temperament to do so. I think the APA or ACA should work with states to provide guidelines for different doctoral licensing designations (such as Counseling Psychologist, Clinical Psychologist, or Psychometrician rather than a one size fits all approach.
