Good job alternative for someone interested in psychology?

Say you're interested in psychology and would like to work in therapy, but you have a necessity to make a higher income after graduation (have people to take care of). Does anyone have suggestions for a career that pays well (typically $55-60,000 up) that might work for a social science-minded type of person? Might be easier if I was a science/math type of person, but I realize I can't be something I'm not... I plan to get a Master's degree if needed (might not have the money & time to realistically get a Ph.D). Thanks for any advice you can give me! I'm really at a crossroad here...
