WHAT IS A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR?

In Georgia, a Licensed Professional Counselor is a highly trained, mental health professional who has met educational and training requirements, including at least a Master’s degree, four years of supervised professional clinical experience and successful completion of  a state examination for licensure as LPC  by the State of Georgia. LPC's are accountable to the Georgia Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapist and Social Workers. 

LPCs work with children, adolescents and adults in short or long-term therapy based on client’s needs.  LPCs provide individual, couples, family and group therapy in hospitals, clinics, agencies, mental health centers and private practice.  LPCs also train and consult with business, government and nonprofit organizations.
