What is the best path to have a career in Psychology?

I have a GPA of about 3.25 and a SAT score of 1680 (570 Critical Reading, 540 Math, 570 Writing); if this info is needed. I'm about to enter my Senior year of high school and will start working on applying to colleges. I want to follow a career in Psychology. I want to end up as a Thepist or if I can a Psychologist. Not my own bussiness, but with a company that would assign me jobs; or something like that. If you get the idea and can explain it better for me, please do. I want to work with people that have mental problems or other such things. I want to help people. Now my questions are simple, but important to me. 1. Name a few colleges that would be best to study at and get my degrees. Not one good one, but enough to have backups and safety nets as well. I live in New Jersey, but am looking for out-of-states near by. One with good class sizes, but not require. And if they help people get jobs after graduation, would be good to know. 2. What would be the best degrees to get?

Lesley University in Cambridge, MA is a good place to earn an Expressive Therapies Degree or an Advanced Education Degree. They have Bachelor/Masters programs there as well. Go to for more details.
