Is there a difference between a counselor and a licensed professional counselor?
My friend and her husband went to a counselor for marriage problems, but I have no idea if the counselor they say was licensed or not.
How does someone know the difference? It must have something to do with the education and credentials they have.
I also have a friend who was required by the courts to see a psychiatrist. In a situation like this, there must be certain types of licensed therapists or psychiatrists that evaluate the situation.
