Licensed professional counselors are qualified to offer counseling and psychotherapy to people who are having problems with their mental health. Licensed Professional Counselors may work for themselves, but the majority of them work in public or private facilities. In this title, you will cater to Individuals, families, couples, teenagers, and children.
Your responsibilities include meeting with new clients to assess their challenges and resources, resolving issues through talk therapy and modeling adaptive, sustainable habits, developing and adapting custom treatment regimens as required, and encouraging positive self-reflection and helpful coping skills. The ideal LPC must have a master's degree in a Counseling-related discipline, plus some experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor. This means you must be licensed and registered to practice as a Licensed Professional Counselor.
As an LPC, you should possess empathy, compassion, and a desire to promote healing. Although the average pay for a licensed professional counselor is $98,502 per year or $47.36 per hour, there are several ways for licensed professional counselors to earn more.
