A Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) holds a Masters degree in mental health counseling and is trained to work with individuals, couples, families, and groups to treat mental, behavioral, and emotional concerns or disorders. PLPCs have completed an accredited educational program, meeting state standards for providing professional counseling services, and are in the process of completing the mandatory 3000 hours of post-Masters degree supervised clinical experience.

PLPCs are under the direct supervision of a Board-Approved Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, and complete weekly supervision sessions during the course of their post-Masters degree training.

PLPCs are required to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics for recognized standards of practice, as regulated by the state’s counselor licensure board.
