I needed to bring a dessert to work on Wednesday to celebrate two of my interns passing their licensing exams. Licensed Marriage Family Therapists and Licensed Clinical Social Workers jump through MANY hoops during their preparation for licensing! After a Masters degree, they need 3000 hours signed off under supervision (that's me), and THEN they prepare for two grueling exams. All of this takes YEARS while they are paid a pittance.
Congratulations to Alicia for passing her second exam. She is now a full fledged LMFT. She still meets with me while the Board of Behavioral Sciences processes her FEES and send her a real license in the mail with her license number! Paulina is on the social worker tract, and just passed her first test. We call her a "LC", which is half way to LCSW!
I decided to bake an Italian Apple Tart from Dolce Italiano by Gina DePalma. This is a fabulous fall dessert with a pastry crust, apples, a custard-like filling, and a crumbly topping.
It is a real winner! If you don't already have a copy of Dolce Italiano, go get one NOW!
