As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Minnesota (LPCC), I hold a 48 credit (185 points) Master's Degrees in Counseling and have 28.5 credits (96 points) additional Graduate Credits in Counseling which made me eligable for licensure in Minnesota. Also, licensure in Minnesota requires 4000 hours of experience working with clients under the guidance of a seasoned licensed professional (supervisor) - meaning 2 years of full time work during which, for every 40 hours of work, 2 hours of supervision was required which provided oversight and guidance over my client case load, self care and continual training. As a licensed professional, I am also responsible to Continuing Education Credits annually (CEUs). Minnesota has one of the America's highest standards for Counseling Professionals.
