Licensed Professional Counselor Requirements

Each state has specific counselor licensing requirements in order to practice legally as a professional counselor. States license areas of practice individually; some states will license areas of practice that others do not. Please remember that regulations are strictly enforced in each state. Those who practice without a license can be punished to the full extent of the law. Don’t let that happen to you.
