Professional Counselor Licensing and Disciplinary Board

The Professional Counselor and Clinical Professional Counselor Licensing Act was signed into law in

1992. Licensed professional counselors provide services in the areas of social, emotional, educational

and career testing and evaluation; assistance coping with life issues that include relationships,

conflicts, problem solving, and decision making; developmental concerns; and research. The statute

also provides licensure as a clinical professional counselor allowing for application of clinical

counseling theory and techniques to prevent and alleviate mental and emotional disorders and

psychopathology and to promote optimal mental health, rehabilitation, treatment, testing, assessment

and evaluation. The Board is made up of seven members appointed by the Secretary consisting of two

members licensed solely as professional counselors, three members licensed solely as clinical

professional counselors, one full-time faculty member teaching professional counseling at the college

level, and one public member. The Board serves in an advisory capacity to the Secretary and makes

recommendations on matters relating to approving graduate counseling, rehabilitation counseling,

psychology and related programs, matters relating to continuing education, and matters of professional

performance and conduct.
