Alex Schmidt, Master of Science in Family Therapy at Texas Woman's University
Over the past several years, I have spent much time reflecting on the career I would like to pursue. Taking into consideration my focus on intentional growth, my compassionate nature and my scholarly training, I have aspired to earn a M.S. in Family Therapy… I find the relationships between couples and family members fascinating, and I enjoy examining the nature of those relationships, especially as affected by their environment... Upon receipt of my Master's degree, I hope to establish a private practice.
