I heard that it was possible to open an independent practice after obtaining a B.S. in Psych. and a Masters in Social Work...does anyone know for sure??

Personally, I wouldn't. After completing all the course requirements for my BS, I don't feel confident enough in my bedside manner to open a private practice. Also consider that you're liable for your patients, and this is especially true in the field of psychology. This means that you have to get medical malpractice insurance, which is very pricey.

Most of my professors that I've talked to say that private practice takes a lot of initial capital investment (depending on the facilities you want to work in and what services you offer and if you have partners or not).

Check with state regulations.
