There are many different professionals to choose from when seeking help managing Mental Health. Your search results may result in:
- Licensed and Unlicensed Counselors
- Certified and Uncertified Coaches
It is important to understand the extent of training the professional you choose to work with has undergone. As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Minnesota, I hold a 60 credit Master's Degrees in Mental Health Counseling and have had 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 and continual training. As a licensed professional, I am also responsible to Continuing Education Credits annually (CEUs). Minnesota has one of the Nation's highest standards for Mental Health Providers.
