What is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC)?
Professional counselor education and training standards for licensure are on par with marriage and family therapists and clinical social workers, the other two master’s level mental health providers in the state. Requirements for California’s Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (LPCCs) include:
- Possession of a 60-unit master’s or doctoral degree in counseling, or a closely related degree, from a regionally
accredited or “approved” institution of higher education that includes certain core content areas
- Completion of a minimum of 3,000 hours of post-master’s supervised clinical experience, performed over two years, and continuing education hours for renewal
- Passage of the National Clinical Mental Health Counselor Examination (NCMHCE) and a California Law & Ethics Exam
- Adherence to a strict Code of Ethics and recognized standards of practice, as regulated by California’s Board of Behavioral Sciences
How can a LPCC help me?
Like other mental health professionals such as social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, LMFTs, LPCC’s help clients by diagnosing and treating common emotional and behavioral difficulties that interfere with functioning at an optimal level. LPCC’s use empirical-supported counseling techniques to help their clients achieve desired goals.
