New Information From Westside Behavioral Care On Choosing a Therapist In Denver

Choosing the right therapist is a complex and extremely important matter, involving questions with licensing, training, degree, and, of course, personal comfort.
Oct. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Westside Behavioral Care in Denver releases free information to the public about not only the importance of seeking mental health care, but how to go about choosing a therapist that is right for you, or your family and loved ones.

Licensing: It is usually best to choose a therapist who is licensed by the regulatory board in your state. Licensing typically ensures that a therapist has obtained a graduate degree and one or more years of post-licensure training and supervision. It also gives recourse to the regulatory board should a question of poor treatment or ethical misconduct arise.

Clinicians with degrees such as MSW, MA, and MS –and licensure status such as LCSW (licensed clinical social worker), LPC (licensed professional counselor), or LMFT (licensed marriage and family therapist) –have earned a Masters degree, typically by attending a graduate school for 2-3 years. An internship, and another year or two of training and supervision, may also be required before the clinician can sit for the state licensing exam.
