Simon Levinson has a B.A. from the
University of Michigan, but found it
difficult to find a job as a psychotherapist
without an advanced degree. So
Levinson decided to enroll in an inten-
sive one-year Master's program at the
Michigan School of Professional
Psychology. Completing the curriculum
while working an internship left him
without steady income or any way to
pay program expenses. He turned to
Hebrew Free Loan, which offers Tov
Loans for retraining and advanced
"In assessing my educational and
living expenses, I realized there was
no way to make it without finding
additional work," Levinson said. "Then
I discovered Hebrew Free Loan. They
listened and we were able to develop
a plan that allowed me to stay afloat."
Levinson says he'll be happy to find
any job upon graduation, but hopes
to one day "have a practice that
allows me to work with children,
adolescents, and individuals with a
variety of special needs in an
experiential outdoor setting."
