The Adler Graduate School prepares students to pursue the professional role of clinical mental health counselor. This is a nationally recognized field in the practice of mental health. Professional counselors typically hold a license as an LPC - Licensed Professional Counselor (currently applicable in Minnesota and Wisconsin) and/or a license as an LPCC - Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
Clinical mental health counselors work in numerous settings that provide education and mental health services to individuals, couples, and families. In terms of coursework and professional preparation, clinical mental health counselors vary from marriage and family therapists in that the clinical counselor's focus is more on individual growth and development. Though clinical mental health counselors work with couples and families, it is more typical that their professional practice is individually focused.
The Adler Graduate School's academic program emphasis in clinical counseling is constructed around State of Minnesota criteria for licensure as a professional counselor. Licensed Professional Counselors and Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors are overseen by the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy. The LPC and LPCC are nationally recognized mental health licenses existing in nearly all 50 states. Some Adler students elect to pursue dual licensure, typically LMFT and LPC.
