I have been an attorney for 10 years. I'm good at my job, but it's very stressful and has seriously impacted my mental health. I don't believe it's just my job. When considering other legal jobs none sound appealing. So, I've been looking at my options. I've been working with a friend who is a career counselor to identify options and determine what careers might be the best fit.
The careers I'm looking at would be counseling or some kind of post-education teaching. I've been exploring getting my Masters in Social Work. I think it would help open up both possibilities. I'm nervous about going back to school (i'm 36) and taking on more debt, though my current school debt is less than average (around 35K).
Does anyone work in these professions and have advice? Anyone go through a major career change and have advice?
