You would probably need to get your master’s in psychology. I don’t believe that having your bachelor’s is enough, as far as I know. You don’t need a PhD to be a therapist, though. Most psychologists only have master’s degrees. Psychiatrists (that can prescribe medication) are the ones that have their PhD’s. I would suggest getting your master’s, but working in a related field after getting your bachelor’s or even associate’s, for example as a behavioral aide/therapist, to get some experience. Good luck! :o)
