    I know there is a very broad world of psychology out there, with many different levels of expertice. I am approaching 50 but never the less I feel I have a calling to become a therapist. Is there anyone out there that might be able to advise me as how I might be able to reach this goal?
    Thanks

    Maybe first take a few hours out of each week to volunteer in a program that matches your interest in the field? See what you are comfortable with before taking the plunge?

    He's not here much anymore, but send a PM to simcha. He's the first one to come to mind, as he's a therapist and has posted as such. He's also been in the field for a long time.

    Good luck on your change!

    Google "career counselors" or "career counseling" in your area ... there's folks out there who can do testing, consulting, etc to help you figure out what you could be doing and how to get there.
