EXAM UPDATE ~ Find out now! Kati Morton | Kati Morton


Hey everybody, happy Monday.
Although, usually Monday’s aren’t very happy, but today is a particularly happy day because.
Okay, so a lot has gone on recently. And I didn’t even have any time to tell anybody about it. So, I passed my exams. Yay! And, the way that this happened. Okay, so I hate the BBS.
And you all know this, because they’re a bunch of idiots, and they make me crazy. And I waited nine and a half months to hear to take my first exam. For those of you who are new, I’ve completed my 3000 hours required, and now I’m taking my license and exams to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, versus just an intern. And it’s taken a really really god awefully long time. And so finally I heard from them in January, and I booked my first exam March 8th, and passed it. Yay. And then it’s supposed to take three to four weeks for you to hear back for you to take your second one, so you study study study, take practice exams and do all this stuff, and I never hear from them. And I never hear from them, and I never hear from them. And then I become a woman so obsessed/focused on this one task, that I call the BBS like every day. I email, I call.
Finally, I get through to this woman. Ta da! And I was so excited. And she’s like hold on, give me your file number, blah blah blah. Okay, I can approve it now and tomorrow I’ll be able to book your exam. Now this was this last Wednesday,
so it’s not even a week ago. And I’m like oh my god, awesome, today is the best day ever, I get to book my exam tomorrow. But then I don’t even really believe her, because I’m like god she works for the BBS and they lie about everything and they’re terrible. And they never get back to you, and bahh. And so I get online in the morning and like I book my exam. And so they had an opening in Burbank, for those of you who know, I live in LA. Technically Santa Monica, but Burbank is one of the closer, it’s actually the closest testing centres. And it was for Friday, so, two days ago, three days ago.
At 1:30. And I was talking to Sean, and I’m like, ehh, should I just book it for tomorrow?
Oh my god, I’m gonna take my test tomorrow. You know, and I’m like what would I do between now and booking it later? And I’m like, nothing. I’ve been wanting to take it for like weeks, and so I booked it.
And I passed it. So what that means, is that I’m back. Ta da!
And you’ll see a lot more of me. And I’ll do my Vlogging videos and all that jazz. Because I have all that time. And it really hasn’t sunk in yet, I mean, yes I feel more relaxed. Yes I’m not like ehh I’m so tense, and ehh I have to do practice exams. And ehh. But I think once I get my license in the mail,
coz it takes like four weeks. Who knows it could take like 12 weeks knowing the BBS it’ll take forever. But it doesn’t matter. Once I get it in the mail, then I can technically call myself a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. And so all of the stuff on the website will be changing, so it doesn’t say ‘MFTI’, it will say ‘LMFT’, and I’ll have a different number I believe, a license number.
Which I’ll put on there too. So yeah, it’s really exciting. Yay.
And so I’ll be doing my Vlogs. So make sure, if any of you are new to my channel, welcome welcome welcome. What I do is Monday I put out a topic video, this Monday I wanted to talk about what’s going on because I feel like I haven’t been able to talk to you that much, and I missed you. And it’s really exciting! So, that’s Monday.
Tuesday I’m on Tumblr, or Thursday I’m on Tumblr, wow. Tuesday I’m on Tumblr.
Wednesday I’m on the website and Youtuble. Thursday I’m on Twitter.
And Friday I’m on Facebook. And you use the #KatiFAQ to ask your questions. And I will find them, and I will be answering them. And so you will be seeing me now five days a week.
I hope you don’t get sick of me. Anyway, so that’s the news. Happy Monday, and I will see you all tomorrow on Tumblr. I believe it’s Tumblr, if I’m wrong let me know. But I believe it’s Tumblr, so ask your questions on there using the #KatiFAQ and I’ll see you all then. Okay bye!

    Hi Kati I've been having some issues lately and I wanted to know what I can do to get help as a teen (13) without telling my mom because I'm just not comfortable but I cant go to therapy without her consent

  70. Yaaay! I know it must feel even longer to you but woweee it was forever ago that you finished your hours! CONGRATULATIONS! x

  71. Congratulations!!!Β 

  72. did anyone else get dizzy watching this? lol well done kati!

  73. Congrats on getting licensed!Β 
    Now that you are back I have a question for you, I have been ED behaviour free for awhile now and have recently graduated from university. I now realize I have no goals to work towards and my mind is starting to shift towards creating unhealthy ED related 'goals'. Do you have any tips or suggestions on creating personal goals (not school, work or disordered)?Β 

    Thanks!

  74. Congratulations!!!This is such happy news!You earned it!!Im so glad you're back, Ive missed you!Over the top thrilled for you.

  75. #katiFAQ I am very hesitant on going to inpatient. My SH is getting worse. I've needed stitches twice in the past three months from where I cut my veins. I've started self medicating with alcohol mixed with antianxieties. I've also started purging and throwing up (not purging) due to anxiety. My suicidal thoughts are escalating and attempts (half assed) are increasing. I'm really scared to do inpatient and I really don't have enough time due to school. What should I do?

  76. YOURE BACK! AMEN! I Feel a lot more comfortable reaching out to you now that ur back! expect a msg! πŸ™‚ Congrats! <3Β 

  77. Congratulations Kati!!!!!!!

  78. Did you get my youtube message?

  85. Fabulous news Kati! Drove me nuts they made you wait so long. Enjoy some time to chill out and revel in your awesomeness. Xx

  86. Congratulations πŸ™‚
    You seem like such a GREAT therapist! If I didn't live in the Netherlands, I would definitely try to get in contact with you. You make me feel like I would actually be able to be open with you. I've been in therapy for a couple of years now but I just can't seem to open up to my therapist. Could you maybe make a video about being open and communicating how you feel with your therapist? My therapist always asks me what I want to talk about but I just feel so awkward and I don't know what to say..

  87. OMG You're back!! Yesss <3 <3

  88. So proud of you!

  89. YAyyyy!!!! Congrats!!!!! <3

  90. a question for your Wednesday video, i hope im not too late. i went to my gp about panic attakcs as they are starting to come back, she made me do a blood test to make sure it was nothing physical but it came back clear, so does that mean im going to be diagnosed with a mental issue?? like panic disorder πŸ™ im so scared she will tell me thats what i have πŸ™ im freaking out and scared to make the next appointment because of itΒ 

  91. Omg congrats kati!! – you so deserved this.<33 I'm so proud of you! aha!

  92. congrats Kati I'm glad you passed I'm so happy to see you i missed you welcome back πŸ™‚ <3

  93. Yay! I knew you would pass and I'm thrilled for you :0)

  94. Congrats, Kati. Your videos have helped me sooooo much. Glad to have you back, but even happier about your professional success and to see what your next steps will be. πŸ™‚

  95. Great job! It is a frigging mind boggling experience to go through. Now, blog away.
