I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. What does that mean? The Texas Department of State Health Services regulates who may carry this title. Requirements include a Master’s degree from an accredited program, at least 3000 hours post graduate practice under weekly supervision, at least 18 months post graduate supervised experience, and passing the National Counseling Exam. Also continuing education must be maintained.

Here is a pdf brochure that summarizes what to expect when working with an LPC: lpc_brochure
