What is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC)?
A Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) is an individual licensed to diagnose and treat issues involving physical, emotional, cognitive, and social aspects of human nature often known as mental and behavioral health. To qualify as an LCPC, an individual must possess a graduate degree, complete advanced training, have extensive clinical work experience, as well as pass a state-certified licensing examination.
In addition to holding a Master’s degree in Human Development Counseling, I have a Doctorate degree in Psychology (PhD). To reach this point, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Human Development Counseling – with emphasis on Marriage and Family, and spent an additional 5 years studying the theory and practice of Psychology.
