Who Are We?

Licensed Mental Health Counselors (LMHCs) hold a master’s or doctorate’s degree, and have over 3,000 hours of supervised counseling experience.  We complete national accreditation and state licensure exams that ensure all Licensed Mental Health Counselors meet uniform, ethical, and professional standards.

There are thousands of LMHCs in New York State.  Almost sixty graduate programs offer a master’s degree in mental health counseling.
