It’s a simple enough question, but there are many types of therapists and counselors out there, so it’s a good idea to check the credentials of the therapist who is working with your child or family. Here is a list of most credentials that are used in Minnesota:
- LMFT – Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
- LICSW – Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
- LPCC – Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor
- LP – Licensed Psychologist
- MD – Psychiatrist
Don’t be afraid to ask. It’s your right, and in your child’s best interest.
