Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC)- Mental health counselors provide client-centered therapy through the combination of psychotherapy with a problem-solving approach to address change and problem resolution. The American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) summarizes the services that are offered by LMHC’s to include assessment & diagnosis, psychotherapy, treatment planning, brief- and solution-focused therapy, alcohol and substance abuse treatment, psychoeducational and prevention programs, and crisis management. Licensed Mental Health Counselors also work with other mental health professions in collaboration for the health and benefit of their clients. Some counseling specialties require licensure first as a mental health or professional counselor before earning certification to work with a specific population. To become a LMHC, one must obtain a master’s degree and licensure.
