Therapists have many different levels of training and come from varying academic orientations.  In order to practice privately, therapists must have graduate degrees in either Social Work, Psychology, Medicine, Theology, Counseling and Education or a degree in Marital and Family therapy.  Therapists can also practice with or without post-graduate training.   

I have a Masters degree in Social Work and a post-graduate certification in Contemporary Psychoanalysis from the Institute for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy of New Jersey  Early in my career I was also trained in family systems and cognitive behavioral therapy.
