There is no one way to become a therapist. This umbrella term often includes psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, life coaches, social workers and anyone else who seeks to help someone improve their life with therapy in some form. For this reason, the path to becoming a therapist may look different from one person to the next. But even so, those paths include some similar steps. During each step, you can choose the specifics based on the type of therapist you want to be.
