What Are Some Examples of Long Term Goals for a Therapist?

Two examples of long term goals for a therapist are becoming a psychologist or continuing in a program to work as an art therapist. Becoming a psychologist takes 6 to 8 years to accomplish and normally requires a doctorate, while becoming an art therapist also takes an advanced masters degree in art therapy, psychology, social work or counseling, as noted by PayScale and the University of Florida's Counseling and Wellness Center.
